FH’s ring is black tungsten with a Koa wood inlay and it’s 8mm. He is a welder/fabricator/mechanic so he will be wearing either a silicone ring for daily use or none at all. He also has a size 16 finger so finding anything that wasn’t basic gold custom made was hard. We found a company online that caters to larger hands and their options were endless.

We just bought our wedding rings yesterday! FH went super traditional: 4mm gold band. He tried on some others, but just kept going back to it.

Hubby has this ring to match mine. We both only wear yellow gold. His is 6mm thick and mine is 2mm for comparison.

His is a lightweight comfort fit 14K white gold band, 5 mm. I’m sentimental, and wanted to ensure that both of us had traditional plain gold bands that would last forever/could be passed down one day. We both grew up in families that did the traditional band thing, so I just couldn’t get past the idea of titanium/tungsten type bands looking cheap/trendy. I’ve seen a bunch online that looked cool, but not timeless.

Carbon fiber and Koa Wood- Handmade from Etsy (and only 200 dollars) SUPER light. Hubby is a Chemistry teacher so he thinks a carbon fiber ring is cool and his parents favorite place is Hawaii so Koa wood has always been his favorite. He loves it! He got the thinnest option but they came in different thicknesses

I’ll play. Hubby wanted something simple but we got engaged while hiking and when he saw this he fell in love.

My husband has a 5mm (at least I think so) 14k white comfort fit high dome plain band. He wanted white gold and comfy and that’s what he got. He has small hands which overall are the same size as mine even though my fingers are longer. He wears a size 8.5(it sits kinda loose which he likes) (I have a 5.5). The ring lost most of its rhodium plating by now and has a nice creamy tone to it now. He doesn’t want it redipped or even polished. He’s an AF pilot and can’t wear his (or any) ring while on the plane but I haven’t ever seen him without it. He has a designated pocket he puts it in before he enters the plane.

These are all lovely!! I’m impressed by the scope of detail in some of these designs, and the creative use of materials (frankly way more diverse than the materials of most women’s rings I’ve seen).
It’s also interesting to see how European rings differ from North American. It’s become pretty normal in the US to have a ring that looks nothing like your husband’s. I like the message of individuality this sends, but there is also something beautifully equalizing about matching rings.
I’m a sucker for wedding band threads anyway because they’re so peacefully romantic compared to the *gasp* *sparkle* impact of engagement rings, and it’s so nice to see both your and your DHs’ rings together.
Keep ’em coming!
ladyvk : LOVE this.
MiaSuperstar : Beautiful, classic rings (and beautiful photos!).

ecrisrien : Hubby is a Federal Security Officer, so he doesnt wear his ring at work, he wears a silicone. He did choose gold though so if needed it can be cut off if he did wear it to work.

We toyed with the idea of platinum for his ring, but ultimately he decided he wanted tungsten carbide, due to its scratch resistance and durability. He also wanted a diamond. We found a seller on Etsy and I had it secretly engraved when I ordered it. It’s a 6mm comfort fit.
