    I think buying him a ring as a surprise is cute and romantic! You can also maybe surprise him with a trip to a store if you want him to pick out his own ring then take him to dinner later.

    Seems like he liked the ring, replacing it would be sweet.

    Honestly, most guys I know have lost their wedding bands at least once. I think that’s why a lot of guys are drawn to cheaper metals like Tungsten these days- if you lose it, yeah it hurts, but less so than if you lose say a $1200 piece of platinum.

    Maybe consider buying 2 or 3 if it’s in your budget. A friend of mine who’s husband fishes a lot (so his hands are regularly in and out of slippery fish guts) bought her husband five wedding bands. They’ve been married three years and have gone through three, although he’s been on the third one for over a year now.

    Look on Overstock, that’s where we bought my hubby’s ring for a whopping $70.

    My hubby lost his the same day we got home from our wedding. Thankfully we ended up finding it a few days later but I was scared for alittle bit.

    I think buying him a new one and surprising him is a sweet idea.

    Tell him to stop wearing his ring to work! If he is a labourer its dangerous isn’t it?

    I sort of laughed out loud when I saw the title… but your last comment @helsbels12:  was uncalled for, I would also say, if he’s a labourer, maybe it’s not a good idea to wear a ring during work. My SO is a cleaner and has to pull heavy garbage bins around. And I wouldn’t think anything of it if he decides not to wear his wedding ring (and yes, he wears gloves!) Just because he wears gloves doesn’t mean the ring can’t be pulled off when doing something that requires use of the hands in a pulling or pushing manner.  

    He simply pulled off his gloves and the ring came off with the gloves… he didn’t notice it coming off so it was loose enough, not tight. I would, of course, buy him another ring, but think about re-sizing it so it’s tighter on his finger.

    @helsbels12:  I don’t think @Swizzle was trying to be negative.  I know a lot of men who work in construction, labor, mechanics, etc. do not wear their rings to work for safety reasons.  The ring (even under gloves) could potentially get caught on something which could result in a broken bone or a loss of a finger.

    If you and your husband don’t think there is much of a risk then that is fine.  Howvever, I think Swizzle was trying to be helpful and come from a place of concern.  Your comment to her was a bit rude.

    In response to your question, I think a surprise ring would be lovely.  I think your husband would really appreciate the thought and sentiment behind it.

    @helsbels12:  whoa calm down.  Alot of labourers and tradesmen dont wear their wedding rings to work because if it gets caught on something you could lose a finger. Its a very common thing. So yes, i still advise he not wear it to work.  My Fiance probably wont wear his for that reason.  And since your husband unfortunatley already lost it once, it would suck if it happened again.
