    I’m hoping he’ll choose a white gold, palladium, or platinum ring so i can get a secret diamond put in it. But, I think he’s leaning toward tungsten or titanium, and those are fine with me too because they’re so durable and stay beautiful/unscratched for a long long time. (Problem is, they’re so hard that you can’t put a hidden diamond in the inside of the band, and a hidden diamond is the only bling he’ll consider! I want him to have some bling, but in the end, it’s definitely his choice of what he likes most stylewise and metalwise.)

    I wanted my Fiance to get something a little different, but he was firmly in the boring band brigade.  So he wound up with a completely plain white gold band- no bling, no embellishments.

    I am planning on getting a plain platinum band from Tiffany’s for my soon-to-be hubby. He doesn’t want anything fancy at all. Here is what his ring looks like.

    The boy originally wanted titanium, then he saw his ring: titanium and meteorite!  So I’m ponying up the big bucks and getting it for him. We need to make sure, but 5mm looks like a good width, not too skinny, but not too wide either.

    Pros and Cons of different metals: All will scratch, but white gold can be replated, titanium can be polished, and platinum can be buffed and polished to bring back shine. If you know he works with his hands a lot, then you could consider getting a satin or hammered finish to the ring.

    Platinum is the heaviest metal, but it will scratch. However, instead of the metal wearing away, it just shifts. As it continues to be worn, a gray patina can develop. If he doesn’t like it, get it buffed and polished.

    Does your FH wear jewelry? Because I think comfort fit is the key. He’s going to have to get used to wearing a ring and anything to help with that is good. Platinum will feel heavy at first, but as long as he keeps wearing it, it should be okay. Titanium feels like nothing at all, but it can’t be resized, so you need to be sure that you’ve got the right measurement.

    Hope this helps!

    The Mister has a plain platinum band. He only had 2 requirements: No bling, and platinum. It was really important to him that we have "matching metals." I knew platinum was way more expensive than other metals, but his ring will be on his hand forever. Plus, I have 2 platinum rings (wedding and e-ring). It didn’t seem right to not spend the money on something he wanted, when I’d be getting 2 more expensive rings on my finger. 🙂

    Husband got the Tiffany knife edge 4.5mm platinum band which he loves. Unbeknownst to each other at that point, his parents also bought new wedding bands and his father got the same one!

    I think it’s cute that DH and his father have matching wedding bands now.

    His is actually mostly white gold surrounded by thin bands of yellow gold. He liked the way it looked, and he was afraid to get tungsten or titanium on the off chance he may at some point have to get his finger cut off.

    He has always wanted a plain gold band. Once he saw my grandfather’s ring that he wore for over 40 years, it was the only ring he could talk about. My family was generous enough to gift the ring to us and my uncle, who is a jeweler, is resizing the ring for him.

    His band is palladium.  I have platinum and wanted them to match, but he didn’t want something that expensive so we went with palladium.  It’s 6 mm, I think, no embellishments.

    DH originally wanted titanium or tungsten, but ended up with a white gold square band.
