    Sort of. What we did was buy a very cheap version of the ring he wants – his dream ring is black tungsten with silver/white gold/platinum edging (he doesn’t care what metal, he just wants the silver colour). So he’s wearing a $20 lookalike right now.

    He wanted to do this so he’s sure about wearing a black ring. He was all worried it’ll look goth or something so it’s getting him used to wearing it 🙂 Also, he likes having something that symbolizes he’s off the market too.

    He wore it for a bit the day we bought it and maybe once or twice after that, but only around the house.  He’s mentioned it a lot since we got it and he’s so excited to wear it, which is totally adorable! =)

    No. He was really really superstitious about putting anything on his ring finger before the ceremony. Like since he was old enough to understand what weddings/wedding rings/spouses, etc were. He only ever wanted his wedding ring there, and only put on by his wife. It was like pulling teeth to get him to try get sized, and then to try on his ring when it came in.

    It kind of surprises me that other men do not wear a ring once they are engaged.  Darling Husband wore his (well, since I made it for him shortly after we met).  I guess I don’t see why a woman would and a man would not?

    We haven’t bought our wedding bands yet, but my FH won’t be wearing his before the wedding ceremony. We’re both very superstitious, and I’ve always heard its bad luck to wear it before the day. x

    My husband did the same thing! The day we bought it, he wore it on his right hand. He really liked it so…he wore it! 🙂

    Darling Husband wore it for about a week after we bought it.  He wanted to try it out.  He said he liked it and what was weird was he was getting noticed by women more because of it.  (Oh, he didn’t like it because they were noticing him, he just liked what it felt like.  He wasn’t sure if he could get used to wearing a ring.  Luckily, he did.)

    Oh, he said he wanted to wear it longer but I told him I think he should take it off.  lol

    My Fiance says he wants to wear his ring before we’re married. But he hasn’t picked one out yet.

    I bought Fiance an $8 Titanium ring to wear as an engagement ring. I love that he wanted to wear a ring too! We will certainly be upgrading to something much nicer for his wedding band. 🙂

    Mine doesnt wear his constantly, but he tries it on every once in a while to get used to it.

    He didn’t wear it on purpose. But he tried it on every day, and there were a couple times he forgot to take it off before he went out of the house.

    Nope, my fiance is superstitious about the bands being worn beforehand as well. He hid them from me (but I found them, haha)!
