Here is my FI’s ring… it is Platinum and from Jared’s I am in LOVE with his ring just as much as mine!

My e-ring and wedding band are pretty blingy.  I have a solitaire on a pave band and the wedding ring is pave too.

My husband does not wear any jewelry, not even a watch.  I knew he’d never wear anything even remotely blingy.  He actually said he just wanted a plain wedding ring. So that is what he got, in white gold like mine. He loves it and it suits him.

Darling Husband wanted something a little different:

This is the only picture I have of his ring. Darling Husband was very apprehensive about having to wear “jewelry” and he wanted a masculine ring. I had to pick a few rings for him to try on because he didn’t even want to look at them. He told me just to buy one. The second time we went to the jewelry store, he picked this one out on his own and it doesn’t bother him at all to wear it. My best advice is to get him involved in the selection process, because that’s when they start to be a little more interested… even if you have to sneakily get him to pick by giving him a few options so he can form an opinion. 🙂

@bridget.sutter: That is so cool!!! Where did you get that??

 

I looked for rings for the hubs first, but ultimately, he picked it out. He’s a mechanic, so I started with carbon fiber, but he didn’t like it, surprisingly. My dad has a black tungsten band, and he wanted something similar. So I pulled up a few sites, found tungsten direct, and he picked it out. But, he hardly ever wears it. I could probably count on both hands how many times he’s worn it since our wedding. Whenever we go away he wears it the whole time, but since he’s always working with his hands, he never wears it on a daily basis

His is pretty plain and simple.  I’ve seen it so much in real life, I’m shocked there’s no picture of it here yet!  Sorry, the only picture of his i have has an extra picture of mine too

@salmonofmarriage: My guy works selling industrial hardware, he is also a hunter and finsherman and we have a 600 acre ranch that he works on during the weekends.  He didn’t like the idea of a ring either.  He tried on multitudes of rings.  Gold ,silver and platinum were all too soft and would dent and scratch far to easily.  Tungstan Carbide was way too heavy and uncomfortable for his taste.   He finally found that he liked either cobalt or Titanium.  The  Titanium he said felt like not even having a ring on at all it is so light and  yet is so strong they can’t even engrave it.  It just won’t scratch.  So we found a Titanium ring, comfort fit, dome style and brushed finish.  Went to Amazon and they are VERY inexpensive.  Checked out the same ring at local jewelry store it was about 30 times more expensive.  Since he didn’t want a precious metal there was no need to spend the jewelry store mark up on it.  This way too if he decides he wants a different style or this one gets damaged at work…I’ll just buy him a new one!  I am even thinking of buying him another one so he can have one for work and one for getting dressed up.  Another thing to think about with mens rings is that if they are guys that work with lots of tools, DIY stuff you don’t want a ring that conducts electricity, it could cause sever burns or other issues in case of an accident.  I am an interior designer and work with lots of builders, none of them will wear gold rings.  Talk to other married men you know about their rings, I got great information from the guys.
