It’s his ring. The bands don’t have to match. He’s the one who has to wear it. Let him get what he wants. Turn the situation around. Would you like it if he told you to get a different ring to match the one he wants? Would you get a different dress to match the vision he wants?

I actually really like black wedding bands! My husband picked a brown one, I LOVE it.

I think a black band would compliment the white gold nicely =) I have seen quite a few men with black wedding bands and i think they are pretty cool looking. I wouldn’t like it so much if you had yellow gold but white gold is fine in my opinion.

I’m with you that I wouldn’t be crazy about the idea of a black band, or non matching metals in general… but at the same time I’m definitely in the “its his ring” camp.

I assumed my Darling Husband would have a nice white gold, milgrain band that would complement my rings. He now has a tungsten carbide and was inches away from picking a ring I personally hated. Despite my opinions on the matter, I supported him in his choice! Its his finger not mine.

I have to say though, I’d take the black over the yellow gold. I think it would look fine!

He deserves to choose the ring he’ll be wearing the rest of his life.

My wedding band is platinum with a smattering of pave diamonds. My mate has chosen a smooth platinum and yellow gold band. We definitely had different tastes in this arena.

He deserves to pick out his own ring. It doesn’t matter if it looks like a wedding ring to you or anyone else–what matters is that he likes it.

I definitely don’t think your band has to match your FI’s band. Let him choose what he wants, and you go with what you like.

As long as I see a ring on a man’s left ring finger, I’d comfortably assume that it’s a wedding band

I had never seen black bands before. I think they are kind of cool. I say let Fiance pick whatever he likes. He has to wear it and it really doesn’t matter if your rings match.

@Mewcakes: Oooh I love that band! 

Like a PP said, I assume someone is married if they are wearing a ring – regardless of color/metal type – on their left ring finger.
