Could you purchase this ring, and a $30 titanium one off of amazon? Then he could wear the nice one when you are out together, to see family, etc but the cheap one to work?

@dewingedpixie:  +1.

Fiance and I are sticking with tungsten for his ring mainly because of OP’s reasons. He dings it off things constantly and the promise ring I got him over a year ago has no scratching on it whatsoever.

If he works with his hands, you ABSOLUTELY want him to have a gold ring.

Cobalt, titanium and many other alternative metals cannot be cut off of fingers. If he were to get his hand or finger caught in machinery a titanium ring would be very bad. He could end up losing his entire finger.

Please get a gold or silver band that can be cut off by EMT’s if necessary. 

I have nothing to add about it being Tacori or costing a lot, except that I think he should get to pick what he wants, just as you did.

@Soon_To_Be_Mrs_T: Honestly, at $2200, I would be upset if it got ruined NO MATTER WHAT! That’s a lot of money to spend on a ring that is so easily destroyed. I’m sure it will withstand far more than you think it will.

Here is one that is $20 he could use as a work filler: http://www.amazon.com/Beveled-Comfort-Titanium-Wedding-Available/dp/B0059291XG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364259643&sr=8-1&keywords=titanium+wedding+band

This one is $10 http://www.amazon.com/Polish-Finish-Titanium-Wedding-Grooves/dp/B005EHI8KS/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1364259643&sr=8-3&keywords=titanium+wedding+band

 

Nothing wrong with a man wanting something nice to look at too :). My fiance’s ring will cost about the same as the one your fiance wants. Considering my e-ring and wedding band cost over 5 times that I cant complain.

And tungsten can be shattered if necessary.

How would you feel if the situation was reversed?  He should get to pick the ring he wants to wear.  Maybe it will get lost or damaged, but maybe it won’t and he’ll wear it for 50+ years.

Can’t you just insure the $2200 ring?

Or just insure it! You can get a jewelry rider on your homeowner’s insurance, and I’m pretty sure there are reputable jewelry insurance places out there.
