So my SO feels a little self concious about his ring. I get tons of complement on my ER (I guess he did a good job), but no one has commented on his ring and now he is sad :(.
This is what I got him. [content removed for self promotion]. It’s obviously not flashy or expensive, but do I get him an upgrade ring this early to make him feel better? Curious to get your thought!
Thanks in advance.

I like it. I haven’t seen a post with his in it yet. But I love the middle of it and rose gold

People don’t normally comment on mens rings. It’s a nice ring, but it’s not an engagement ring so there’s no real obligation to comment In society.

Honestly, I don’t know that I’ve told any man I liked his ring, but that one is so unique I probably would have! Did he have any say in the current ring? Maybe let him pick one out for himself? Idk that it would change anything, though. People generally don’t seem to gush over mens rings as much as they do over ours.

I actually love his ring! I’m just not sure that men often compliment each other’s rings!

Yah I’ve never heard of anyone commenting on a mens ring… but its totally normal to gush over a brides rings 🙂 Don’t worry… I’m sure if you upgraded his ring no one would notice but you guys

It’s unique. I never thought to compliment a mans ring. Does it bother him??

I actually like this ring, to me it looks different from other mens rings which are normally just a plain band. As others have said though, men don’t really ooo and ahhh over rings so I wouodnt worry about it!

Yeah, men don’t really comment on other men’s rings unless it’s something super unusual. DH actually has a gear ring (not his wedding ring) that spins and the gears move, guys comment on that one all the time, but rarely comment on his wedding ring. If you upgraded, I doubt you’d see a difference in the number of comments.

Has he said why he’s self conscious about his ring? The only time anyone said anything to my husband about his ring was at our wedding when they were looking at mine and he was standing next to me so they asked to see his too. I don’t think its really the norm to comment on mens’ rings. I do notice guys rings but I’d never say something to a guy about his ring.

I feel like FI’s and husband’s are constantly upgrading rings to make the women they love happy. If he wants a flashier ring, GO FOR IT. I agree with pp though, he will likely get less comments because men’s rings are noticed less. FTR, I really like the ring you got him.

You two both need hobbies.

I got my Fiance a Carbon6 ring and when we got to a musical event, everyone was comment on how cool it was. like literally men and women alike loved it.
from your post, I feel as though I will now take notice and complement men’s rings more often. I mean, men have feelings too and if a ring rocks (like your FIs) then it deserves its spotlight!
