@HisMoon:  Yes, it is exactly like his.  Are y’all Irish too or did you just love the design?

@MrsFuzzyFace:  He’s Irish. He didn’t even realize rings could have designs, and when we started looking, he surprised me by picking it out. I love it, but since I’m Filipina, I’ll definitely have to field questions about heritage down the road, ha.

We got Tungsten simply because my husband wasn’t planning on wearing his ring a lot due to his job and also because he’s not really a jewelry kind of guy.  He wasn’t excited about a ring until I showed him the Tungsten with the Celtic Knot and then he loved the idea of his ring 🙂  One thing that helped me was my friend who gave me the advice to get him one that is a “comfort fit” which has helped him get use to wearing the ring when we go out.  The little flash of gold within the design is a reflection from the ring box the rings were sitting on so it’s not a part of the ring at all.

Just leave your husband’s ring the way it is. People are rude and nosy, just ignore them. Your rings don’t have to match. My Fiance has a black ring that I bought him a few years ago, but it’s too thick to wear comfortably on his ring finger (and it scratched, boo). He loved it and got lots of compliments on it. I ended up getting him a titanium ring off of Etsy because I found a seller who could make one 1mm wall thickness and Fiance loves it.

FH has a tungsten band, so does his brother

FH’s Ring

FH’s brother’s ring

 

ETA: It was a fluke they picked the same ring, we had never seen his ring prior to FH picking his

Question to you all– where did your fiance’s get their Tungsten rings?  At a jeweler?  I know this is random, but a good friend (who bought his ring a few years ago through a jewelry store) said that he could find the same thing now on Amazon.  Hmm… thoughts?

@HisMoon:  Where did he get his?  Love that celtic detail!

@megabrooke:  We got ours from Amazon. They were having a sale on Black Friday/Cyber Monday and had some phenomenal discounts on jewelry. Before that, we were looking sites that were exclusively for tungsten and titanium rings. Fiance noticed that a few sites had the same exact pictures for certain rings, so we figured we might as well give Amazon a chance. 

For ladies whose FIs are worried about wearing a ring, my Fiance was concerned about the same thing, so when our rings came in, he began “practicing being married” as he called it. When we’re just watching tv or generally hanging out at the end of the day, he puts his ring on for a few hours to get used to it. I don’t know if that’s taboo or not, but I find it rather adorable!

My Fi is having an all black tungsten, and I think if people are asking, there really is no reason to defend the choice the two of you made for his ring.  I honestly think the black tungsten is a simple classic looking ring and much more durable.  I wouldnt defend the ring I simply would say because he loved the ring.   If you love it and he loves it why change it.  🙂
