So my fiance and I went today and bought our wedding bands… originally I thought he would get a tungsten band because he does a lot of physical labor for work. Well when he looked he didnt like the tungsten, he found a white gold band he fell in love with.. I didn’t want to tell him he couldn’t get it because he literally let me get whatever I wanted. We spent more on his wedding band then we did on mine and now I am worried it is going to get beat up at work! Has anyone had experience with gold holding up well or should I buy him a silicon one for work?

You could always get him one of those cheap silicon ones for Amazon. He could wear that one of work, and then wear his “real” ring the rest of the time.

My husband chose a gold ring also, and he’s a craftsman. He just doesn’t wear his ring to work 😊

My father has worn a yellow gold wedding band for the last 35 years. His job doesn’t involve physical labor but he does build cars and do household handy work in his spare time. His band has held up with no issues over that time span. I probably wouldn’t worry about it.

I’ve known too many men who worked with their hands that had injuries because they were wearing their wedding rings while working. I have told my husband I’d prefer it if he didn’t wear his when he’s working but he won’t listen to me. If he has to wear a band, a silicone one that would break instead of causing injury might be a good idea.

My man wears his 24/7 and he does physical labor, not a problem at all, it is still perfectly round and gets cleaned up in the shower….the only thing that would concern me with white gold , is that it needs to re plated/dipped forever……which is why mine chose yellow gold…..

My fiancé and I went wedding band shopping today and our jeweler told us tungsten rings can break. We were asking because my fiancé works out frequently at the gym, and our jeweler said white gold is a much better option.

Look around at the rings all the old people are wearing. Most of them are gold. My husband has been wearing a gold wedding band for 17 years, and aside from needing to be buffed occasionally, it’s held up really well.
