Not at all. Get him a tungsten carbide or titanium ring. On amazon or overstock.com you can easily find a plain one for under $50 and they look nice. As for your ring, $300 might be challenging depending on what you want (what type of metal, if you want diamonds, etc). But if you’re cool with a plain gold band I’d say its totally do-able. 🙂

Not at all. Lots of people choose to have tungsten or titanium rings for reasons totally other than cost, it just so happens that they’re cheap. Tungsten in particular is nice because it is pretty much impossible to scratch or bend. And especially if he doesn’t ever plan to wear it, why would you invest in something else?

I agree with the previous post, a hundred dollar budget is completely reasonable. Fiance and I are going with white gold bands, but our budget is not much more than yours. It is also pretty common for the woman to have a more expensive wedding band as we enjoy more detail or stones than men do. 🙂

A $100 is fine especially if he isn’t a jewlery guy and has no intention on wearing it. My friend got her husband a tungsten ring for $25 online.

i think that’s totally fine. i told Fiance i would buy him whatever band he wants, and he just happens to want a stainless steel band that costs less than $100. i’m not complaining…

We went looking the other day and he found one he likes for $149 at a jewelry store in the mall. We looked at the titanium and tungsten because he works in the construction industry (he’s supposed to do the paper work, but he’s gone out and actually helped before). He picked titanium because it’s so much lighter. So I’d say your budget is fine.

On the topic of not wearing jewelry, my dad has never worn a wedding band except for in their wedding pictures.

I have a guy friend who bought a $40 Tungsten ring as his wedding band and he was really happy with it. He wasn’t even being cheap, he just wanted the material and it happened to be really inexpensive.

I’d say just look at some different options and pick out what you like. My wedding band ended up costing less than 1/2 of what I budgeted, but instead of getting something more expensive to avoid being ‘cheap’ I just thought it was an added bonus!
