A) it’s his ring

B) they’re not that bad

What if he said what you liked was ugly and complained about it?

I love that wood one.  And honestly when it’s on his finger, you won’t really notice the details.  My husband’s has this cool woodgrain pattern but it just looks like any other = ring from a foot away.

@BurlapnLace:  The black is metal. One of them actually says titanium on it. As far as stacked in the pictures goes, it’ll look fine. Here are some examples. Honestly, those pictures are going to be the only time anyone sees your rings right next to eachother and no one really pays attention to that anyways. None of the ones you posted are bad at all. His opinion may change once you shop around in person, but be prepared. If that’s his taste, you’re more likely to find something he likes online as opposed to instores. Men’s jewelry is a very limited and every store has pretty much the same things.

I have to say, the black and red one, along with the black with metal wire? (before last ring) are just hideous in my opinion. I wouldn’t want him wearing either of those… at least not as a wedding band. I also think I’m a lot more traditional though….

Looks like he’s going for something a bit unique looking, something that stands out. I personally like the wood inlay one. Has he considered going with a ring made of meteorite?

The only one of those I like is the wood one, but that’s just personal taste.  Your bands don’t need to match or co-ordinate in any way.  If he wants something different, he should be able to get what he wants.  My Fiance is looking at something less traditional, I asked him if he was sure and thought he would still like it in 50 years.  He said yes.  Done, the ring is his.

@BurlapnLace:  I dont really see anything wrong with his choices and I agree with other bees, it is his ring.

There’s a bit of a difference between thinking that what he wants doesn’t look traditional, and saying that all the rings he likes are “UGLY”. If you use emotive language you’re going to get emotive responses! 

I guess the answer is: would you like him to wear the ring after the wedding, and does he want to? If yes, then get one he likes.

My Fiance found that wood ring on etsy which lead him to this ring which I think is much nicer, and honestly is very ‘him’. 

Maybe find out what elements about those rings appeal to your Fiance and then spend some time browsing for something that speaks to both of you. At the end of the day, he should love his ring.

@BurlapnLace:  “Wood paneling has no place in this world.  On walls, on cars, on wedding bands…”

LOL! +1!
 
Yeah, it’s his ring and he can wear whatever he likes, blah blah. But do everything womanly possible to keep him away from the wood panel one, at least.

@BurlapnLace:  I feel you. DH’s ring is camo, but not just camo it HAD to be Real Tree APG Camo, and although I have grown used to it, perhaps a little fond of it even, part of me still hates it. It looks like he bought it at the hunting store, it looks nothing like a wedding band except for the fact it’s on the appropriate finger. People (read: other women) don’t actually realize that it is a wedding band.

However, apparently I am the best/coolest wife ever according to Dh’s friends, for actually letting him have this ring lmao. Honestly, it was what he wanted and it was cheap, I brought myself to the conclusion that as long as he wears it I just don’t care. Also he knows that if he ever wants to get a different one, like maybe a nice gold band, someday that I would be more than willing to accept it.

I see what you’re saying, totally feel your pain, but at the end of the day, as long as he wears it right? 🙂

@BurlapnLace:  At least he will wear his if he likes it!

I’d just let him get what he wants… ORRR

I sister-in-law told me it was my responsibility to get him HIS ring as it’s traditionally the bride’s gift to the groom… just as the groom gets the bride an engagement ring.

Now a days we usually pick ourselves because like PP stated – its going to be on OUR finger – but you could always try to pull that one with him and pick it yourself to be a surprise to him on your wedding day.

Don’t get him something he wont like though… my Darling Husband likes his ring and still he doesn’t wear it. lol

@BurlapnLace:  bummer! I have to admit I really like the wood one though. 

I know how you feel and I’m glad you think it should ultimately be his decision. the best you can do is make suggestions. keep us posted on what he picks!
