We both decided against a solid gold ring. Hes going to be too rough with it, and he doesnt care about price tag or anything like that. He just wants a ring that mates mine, mine being rose gold.
Ive seen posts on here about tungsten pros and cons and everything but I havent seen a post comparing it with the quality of some other materials, such a gold filled or gold plated sttel. I know that gold filled is better than gold plating, so plating is out.
Does anyone have an opinion on this? I am no jewelry expert. help!

I think gold plated tungsten is the only option if you want tungsten, and you’re right, that won’t stay looking nice as long as gold filled will, because it gold filled has a significantly thicker layer of gold. It’ll be cheap enough that you won’t mind replacing it in 10 years if it gets beat up anyway 🙂
I’ve seen gold filled rings on Etsy for VERY cheap, they will probably have 4-5mm wide bands (ie. men’s, though it might not be listed as such) for like $30-40
