    I work out/lift/run and have days where I have to glove up constantly for work. I wear a plain 2mm comfort fit titanium band. It’s super lightweight, unobstrusive, and hypoallergenic. Never had an issue with it coming off in my gloves, but it was super cheap – $10ish on amazon so if I did lose it, not a big deal (seriously it’s only 3 lattes). I basically only take it off when I’m making bread because it leaves little divots in the dough and is annoying to knead with.

    I would get him a small/thin ring and ask him to try it out for a week or two, maybe only take it off when he works out to start with. You could also get him a 2mm/thin tungsten band, but those tend to be heavier and a squidge less comfortable in my opinion and are a wee bit more expensive.

    @KimmySumShuga:  Oooh yes, he most certainly does NOT wear it to the gym. It’s an omega seamaster: $4400! $2500 from me, the rest from our joint account. I didn’t mind, it cost less than my rings (if you count both of them). He was hesitant to spend that much, but I told him it might be a once in a lifetime gift and he should get the coolest most amazing one.

    He has an office job and wears it to work, and he wears it with jeans etc too. I like that he wears it all the time. I’m of the opinion that nice things are for enjoying, not for sitting in a safe. Thus, I’m wearing $7000 of diamonds with my sweatpants 😀

    The watch is the kind of style that works with both dressy and casual, here’s the link for fun:

    Is he willing to give it a try? I think that’s a reasonable request, then if he doesn’t like it you can engrave something really sappy in the watch!

    @ittybittykittycommittee:  I wear a 2mm ring like that sometimes, and it’s true: you almost can’t feel it at all! Mine is stainless steel. I love how it looks.

    Mine wears a 10mm band and NEVER takes it off but he’s really cute about it.  Heck, he’s planning on getting a ring tattoed under it sometime soon too so if ever has to take it off it’s still on lol!

    My hubby is a firefighter/emt and has gloves on and off all day and ALWAYS wears his ring. He freaks when I take mine off for a shower! He has told me he’ll take it off rarely if hes around diseased blood or something super gross so there’s less of a chance of his glove ripping but otherwise, I’ve never seen him take it off. 

    Hes also thinking about getting a ring finger tattoo so itll be permanent 🙂

    Has he tried on one of the square rings?  My husband hates round rings, but he loves and wears his square one.

    @KimmySumShuga: 

                 My fiance won’t be wearing a ring all the time. Mostly due to work. He’s never liked the feel of rings and his work policy states no jewellry as they work with machines where they can get caught in. He makes gel capsules for pharmaceutical companies so they work in a sertile environment. He will only be wearing it when we go out for the night etc. He doesn’t make a big deal when I don’t wear mine or forget mine (take mine off for showers, doing dishes, baking, applying lotions, anytime my hands get dirty etc)

    Not married yet, but he better!  I saved up for a long time to buy it and wanted him to pick whatever one he wanted.  Of course he wanted one of the most expensive in the shop (and he says I have expensive tastes!!)  As someone who has struggled with finances in the past, I’m really proud of the fact I could afford it all by myself (and in cash no less), and I really hope it would be meaningful enough for him to wear it.  

    My fiance had a similar attitude because he is kind of a rough and tough guy who is often outdoors and working with his hands.  I brought him to a jewelry store and he literally tried on every ring in the store and he found one he likes and was comfortable.  Now he is actually super excited to wear it (like he is tempted to wear it NOW.. haha)

    Maybe he just doesn’t like it.  I wouldn’t spend too much worrying about it.  His finger, his choice.  My DH sometimes wears a ring.  He can’t with work, so he wears it weekends if he remembers.

    He loves it but takes it off all the time. He doesn’t like the way his rings feel when he’s typing, eating, or going to the bathroom(!). He always puts them in his pockets or sets them in front of his monitor. I’ve very worried that the original rings are not going to be around for the next 50 years or whatever because of that habit. It seems like eventually they will get lost :-/

    My husband is a chef and uses his hands all day long. He also never wore rings before we were married, but he wears his wedding ring every day. This time of year when it is super cold, his ring has a tendancy to fly off, so I think that bugs him. We’re contimplating buying him a “winter” ring because his finger size changes so much during the year.

    On the other hand, we have another friend who is also a chef and refuses to wear a ring, so he got his wife’s name tattooed on his knuckles. So I guess that was his option.

    My DH is not the jewelry type and really didn’t want to get a ring.  However, because I wanted him to, he got one.  It’ a nice, but inexpensive, Tungsten ring.  He always wears it and never complains.

    @KimmySumShuga:  my hubby cannot wear his ring during the week due to the job he has…wearing it could lead to physical injury with the machinery he uses. He always wears it on the weekends though and likes to.
