Yeah, he was alittle iffy about it. It is also tungsten. It was really all I could afford at the time. He said it bothers him sometimes, I am going to look into getting a new one for him soon. Bring him with this time so he can try them on and see what is comfortable.

@MrsDrRose612:  my Fiance wears his ring now (wierd i know but its important to him so whatever he said he wanted to get used to wearing it since it will be there forever lol) and he had the same issues. basically the fingers around the ring are adjusting to a hunk of metal being where only flesh was. Fiance had almost blisters on either side of his ring up until about a week and a half ago… so aobut a month and a half to two months after he started wering it regularly. i think its just that the skin has to toughen up or something because now he is fine. also Fiance got an ingrown hair under his ring that bugged him a bit but that seems to be all done with now. i tihnk a big facor is that the top of the band is not rounded so that took some getting used to

stats on FI’s ring

8mm comfort fit tugsten

here is a picture so you can see the shape of the edges:

Edt: Fiance told me to add that now everythings is fine and normal and he doesnt even think about it now he says its just getting used to wearing a ring because most men dont wear rings until they get married and “women always have rings on and have grown up wearing them so its nothing for them to really get used to”

Yes… he did have a hard time getting used to it.  He would take his on and off like that too.  I too told him to stop before he lost it… and guess what?!  He did!!  Thank GOD it wasn’t expensive.  We bought a titanium ring that was easily replaceable and didn’t break the bank. 

I remember it taking me a long time to get adjusted to my engagement ring as well, but left it alone.  For my husband I think it will take longer to get used to because he’s not allowed to wear it to work for safety reasons.

My husband has the same ring as aprose’s.  He complained about it for a few weeks after we got married but now he doesn’t even notice it.  I think it’s just an adjustment for them if they’re not  used to wearing rings.

A friend of mine got married in May and her husband is having the same problem– he had to move his ring to his right hand for a few weeks until it’s healed, and is going to try again.  

Not sure if it’ll help– but at least you know your hubby isn’t alone!

I got my husband a titanium ring a long time ago, and he had the same problem with blistering skin. He’d switch it between hands and by the time one finger healed, the other was blistering. We exchanged it for a tungsten ring and he had the same problem. We were surprised because the jeweler told us those metals were hypoallergenic. When we were shopping for his wedding ring, he decided he wanted a yellow gold band. We were both a little worried about whether he’d have the same blistering problem, but so far it’s been perfect!

He will get used to it. I think men in general are ‘allergic’ to their rings. I think society has made men afraid to wear a band heheheheh ….My hubby is fine with his ring and it did take him a long time to get used to it hehehh

My husband definitely had an adjustment period. He got his finger measured before the wedding and when I went to the jeweler I told him the correct size. But when he put the ring on it was too tight and it was really uncomfortable. Since then the ring has adjusted to his finger – maybe it stretched – and he has gotten used to it. But there are still times he forgets to put it on and I’ve noticed when his fingers swell from the heat he tends to put it on his pinky.

I catch my hubby playing with his ring sometimes, but it doesn’t seem to bother him.  He wears his all the time while I take mine off at night, when I shower, get dirty, etc.  His is only a 6mm comfort fit tungsten carbide band.  He didn’t like the feel of anything wider.

@MrsDrRose612:  He says it bothers him. His fingers also tend to swell at certain times of the night and it seems to be cutting off circulation. I had him sized and everything, so I don’t understand and don’t know if it is too small. I tell him he dosn’t have to wear it all the time, but he does anyway. I hate to see him uncomfortable, so if it is a skin issue, I would rather just get him a new one. Right now though, I am just going to return it for a slightly bigger size since it is covered under warranty and see how that goes.

My husband was actually excited to wear his but he did forget to wear his the first day back at work after our honeymoon but has not forgotten since.
