Try looking into Tungsten Carbide rings.  They are said NOT to scratch or dull or change shape.  My FI’s is still in the box so I can’t speak from experience though.

Husband picked his own ring. Stainless steel with Mother of Pearl inlay. Its supposedly pretty tough metal, and after him wearing it more than a month, still not a single scratch on it.

It is supposed to be pretty tough and scratch resistant.  They come in many styles from plain to ornate. Google it and you’ll find a ton of info on it!

I belive that tungsten also has the lowest conductivity rating as well? (or is it titanium?) Could be something to think about if he does any electrical work.

My Fiance wanted a coin ring, but also wanted a black ring… so I found someone to combine both!

@Dub D: That’s really cool looking!

This is my FI’s ring. He originally had a different one. We sent it back to get a different size, and they sent a different style back! He actually liked the new one better so he kept it.

Check out Scott Kay Cobalt. It’s stronger. Hub’s ring (and mine):

 

Tungsten Carbide rings are made from tungsten powder and carbon sintered with nickel, which contains tiny voids. These voids become even weaker if the wedding ring is notched or has diamonds embedded. The Tungsten Carbide band cannot bend so a sharp shock can break these bands.

My hubby has Tungsten and we both LOVE it.  It’s true, they don’t scratch or get dinged up.  The color is a little darker than white gold so be sure to see it in person before ordering (if you go that route).

My Fiance is an outdoorsy guy, so he got a ring that is already kind of banged up looking! It’s been hammered randomly with 4 different sized hammers, and it’s sort of a rough finish (The picture doesn’t really show it, but it actually has small “scratches” from the little hammers). It is 8mm wide, 18k yellow gold. He loves it! We commissiond it from this seller on Etsy.

My husband got a titanium band. He was originally going to get tungsten but I can’t remember the exact reason why he decided to go with titanium instead but it was the better choice between the two for him (I think tungsten is more brittle? I don’t remember >.<)
