    All FI cared about was that it was tungsten and not gold, as he rock climbs, fixes cars, etc that will scratch his ring – and tungsten doesn’t really scratch. I told him I wanted it to be closer to white gold then the darker tungsten option and then he picked which one he liked the best – so I voted “we looked together”

    we went to the mall chains to get an idea.  originally I thought we’d just get Fiance a smooth plain yellow gold band, as that would match my rings nicely, but I wondered if he’d rather get one of the trendier ones that are in tungsten or something.  When we first looked, he was drawn toward the two-toned rings and really didn’t like the rings that are dark or black because they seemed too… I don’t know, morbid?  Not “wedding” enough is what he said.  However he finally tried on just a solid white gold band and realized he liked the silver look way better than the gold, and we opted for a cobalt band I ended up ordering off amazon ($90 vs. the same ring at Kay’s for $350!) I did, however, order this without telling him (oops?) but he loved it once it arrived.

     

    So long story short, he pretty much shocked me and I’m glad I let him go look.

    We picked it together. 🙂 Then again, we picked out my Engagement Ring pretty much together too. Lol.

    We looked together for both our rings.  My E ring is white gold so I suggested he get something to match and he ended up getting a titanium ring.

    He loves it as it is very lightweight, he doesn’t usually wear any jewellery at all and it was the 1st ring that felt comfortable on him.

    I picked other… We kind of looked together, but I kind of pushed my guy toward one design… I know that sounds really harsh, but he does like it, promise! We ended up both getting fairly traditional settings that complimented each other quite well!

    I just bought my fiance’s ring yesterday. All he cared about was that is wasn’t yellow gold or super shiny. I favorited a few different rings on Amazon and then let him rank them. He chose a tungsten ring that I got for less than $50.00 over a white gold ring that cost $300.00! Awesome.

    I was surprised how important his ring was to him.  Not that he was after something complex or flashy, just that it fit his personality.
