My husband chose his because well he’s the one wearing it so he should choose it!

He’s very simple so he did not want anything ornate. He looked into the different metals such as tungsten, titanium, cobalt etc. We also looked at wood ingrained bands and various other custom options. While they were “cool” he & I felt that they were the fads of the moment. We both thought our wedding bands should be something more timeless. So he then looked at white gold vs platinum. I was pushing for him to get platinum because it’s a sturdier metal and when it scratches the metal is pushed to the side while with white gold the metal is gone. Being a guy with a physical job and always working around the house etc I felt a sturdy metal was important. Ultimately it came down to price. The prices I was able to find, the same exact band in white gold vs platinum was only like $2-300 difference. So I felt that it was worth it to go for the platinum and he agreed.

As for style again he’s very simple so no celtic knot or ingrained details or anything like that. Just a simple flat comfort fit platinum band.

we chose tungsten carbide for FI’s ring. its much more heavy duty than regular white gold and was the nicest style he liked. It has lines etched in to create texture and the center ring is black  it cost about 450 from zales

My husband chose black tungsten carbide and he loves it.  The brand is Triton and we got it for around $250 although it was originally $300.  Here’s a picture.

My fiance also chose a Tungsten Carbide.  He liked the style the best, and the price!  It was only $100 from a local jeweler.

We went with tungsten carbide as well. My fiance liked it’s weight & durability. We only bought his to exchange at the ceremony, he hates jewelry & plans on getting a band tattooed, so I liked the $45 price tag 🙂 We bought from Amazon:

My Fiance chose a white-gold band for much the same reasons as Gerbera’s.  He was planning to go tungsten or titanium, but when we looked at them, he felt they looked like they were more of a fad and he wanted something he will still love when he’s 80.  He liked a white-gold one and opted to get the package where he can get it rhodium dipped every 6 months to take care of the scratching issue.  I really love his ring.

@SophiaPetrillo: Thanks! haha- you better get on it girl! 🙂

 

@Miss Stella: Thank you, I actually purchased mine from Overstock- they have a great selection & prices- would highly recommend. Tungsten cannot be cut off, I think everything else can be.

My Fiance and I looked at the tungstens, but went with white gold because the tungstens can never be resized.

We just got my husbands upgrade ring–His other one was sterling silver & it was bent & scatched all to bits. We went with Tungsten Carbide for his new ring & he loves it!
