How about a carbon fiber wedding ring? They have loads on Etsy, and it’s certainly different, and I heard that it’s really strong and light, and it can be made into lots of different styles.

Here is the link to Etsy.com

I had never heard of iron wedding bands until this post.  That’s interesting. 

I like the suggestions here for tungsten, stainless steel, titanium and carbon fiber.  Maybe show him those options and see if he’ll bite.

I agree with many other PP, Show him different options and hopefully he will change his mind.  He may just not know cool rings come in other materials.

@squeak: ohh i love the idea of a copper ring! My maiden initals are CU, which is the elemtenal sign for Copper, and I have red hair so Copper was one of my nicknames growing up. I really want to get that for SO.

I love the look of carbon fibre rings. They come in all sorts of colors and patterns too.

Copper will turn his fingers green.  Iron is a pretty bad choice.  Perhaps put it to him this way–the reason you don’t see iron rings is because they are not good ring material.  


Here are a bunch of links from a shop–they range from $35 – $150 and have a lot of cool inlay

titanium with iridiscent polymer inlay



buffalo horn



rams horn



 hard surface countertop material


aluminum with cocobolo inlay



sandblasted titanium



titanium with dinosaur bone



titanium with concrete

Engineers in Canada wear iron rings.


I think some are made from stainless steel now; but my Dad’s was iron.  It never discoloured his pinky..  even though he had worn it nearly smooth.
