OK so my FH FINALLY went and got his ring finger sized yesterday. He is a size 11.75,,which is so ODD!! So im on amazon and i find these Tungsten rings which look amazing, are cheap and best of all they never break or get scratched up which is perfect for us because he plays flag football evry sunday! but my issue is…im going to spend $50 tops on his ring…and he easily is about to drop $2000 on my set!! he says he doesnt care ( he is not a big jewlery wearer at all). Are any of you brides going Tungsten?? or have a tungsten ring already?

When my fiance and I first looked at rings I just assumed we would get him white gold like mine so we picked one out. The sales lady is actually the one who suggested the Tungsten bands for it’s durability. Then she told us the prices; white gold= $1000, the tungsten= $250! Yeah no brainer. My fiance (like a lot of non-jewelry wearing men) don’t have the same standards or preferences as us women, he was totally fine with it.
Then we decided it would be special to add both of his grandfathers wedding bands (one to each side of his band) and that’s when we found out we couldn’t solder to Tungsten so we ended up going with the white band anyway. We were both looking forward to saving a ton of money with the tungsten but now he has a one of kind VERY special ring.
I say go for it, it’s a great value and to me looks just like white gold.

Fiance got a tungsten and carbide ring that’s really cool. It was a little more expensive, but it’s about the same as my wedding band will be (200). Guys rings are just a lot more simple than a woman’s band or e-ring. It’s so “him” though at the same time. *He’ll also be rough on his ring like your Fiance. His hobby is cars. Lol

definitely buy the tungsten band online – the brick and mortar stores mark it up like crazy. What costs $50 online will be marked up to $250-300 in the store. Very annoying!

DH’s ring is tungsten and I bought it off of overstock.com for like 60 bucks! Can’t beat that. He doesn’t wear it all that much though due to his line of work (he’s a fireman) & because he doesn’t really like jewelry lol. But I make sure he wears it when we go out together (when I remember)!

My fiance and I just got home from buying his tungsten ring! We love it. They are so modern and nice looking, we actually preferred it to the white gold. And the store is going out of business so we got a $350 ring for half price. His size is 11.5 so it’s not very common and they had one left. One thing to keep in mind is that it cannot be sized. And it is very durable so it is difficult to remove if it were to get stuck on his finger!

Ughh I saw the prices of tungsten rings online, so I was like, PERFECT. Then when we bought my set, I told Fiance to look at a few rings and see what he likes so we can make an easier decision online and to my luck he fell in love with a ring and HAD to have it.
My $50 ring turned into a $250 ring just like that.

My husband has a tungsten band with a carbon fiber inlay and I have a white gold band with diamonds. I might get a tungsten stunt ring since I find myself not wearing my ring a lot because I don’t want to damage them.

When Fiance and I went shopping for his ring, we originally planned to get titanium; however, when we got there, the salesperson suggested tungsten carbide as it’s a bit heavier compared to the titanium. Fiance absolutely LOVED it and is so excited about wearing a tungsten carbide ring. It’s apparently used as the drill bit when drilling into granite and Fiance thinks that’s pretty awesome (he’s a civil engineer – what can I say, he’s a nerd – but a very adorable one!) I think we paid around $250 for it.

I got Fiance this one, with a celtic pattern since he is from Ireland. He tried it on and said it’s really comfortable.

We actually bought a total of three Tungsten rings-two for him and one for me. He really liked the smoky black one and then I bought a set of more “silvery” bands with Celtic etchings. Well, I tried wearing my Celtic style Tungsten band and it was so heavy, like a Fred Flintstone rock. lol
But my husband loves his dark-colored ring and gets lots of compliments. And I keep the Celtic rings around-just in case. But I think I paid about $100.00 total for all of them on eBay. Gotta love it!
