    I’m debating getting Darling Husband an “everyday” band.  He got an expensive white gold band and it’s already getting all scratched up (and he complains about it) so I’m thinking getting him a cobalt band perhaps instead so he can keep his real band in good shape and wear it on special occassions.

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  That’s exactly why we didn’t get Tungsten. My Fiance also has huge hands so when certain kinds of rings get resized, you can see that they were resized.

    He has his “cheap” one he wears on a daily basis (he’s in the skilled trades) and a “nice” one that he will wear after the official weddingmoon when he’s not at work.

    The cheap one wasn’t actually that cheap and it already looks like crap, lol. I’m glad he didn’t do that to the nice one!

    My Fiance is getting a tungsten band for when he wears gloves at work or works outside and a gold band for regular wear.

    My Fiance has a titanium practice/mangagement ring that he has been wearing around the house/on errands to check the size (and because he likes wearing the ring).  We’re ordering his “real” platinum/yellow gold ring soon.  Not sure if he plans to use the titanium one as a vacation ring–I should ask!

    My husband has two wedding bands.  One for work and one for when he isn’t working.  I think it is always a great idea to have a back-up,  just in case.

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  we are considering doing this…my Fiance got a gorgeous dark pearl inlay wedding band and I am so scared it will get messed up. Granted he works in an office, but he is a hunter and works on cars, rides 4 wheelers, etc (boys will be boys! lol) so we are considering for him and myself getting two, one to wear for nice events and one for everyday (I initially only wanted one for myself as well but mine is a huge ruby and I’m worried about messing it up as well…I dont personally care for wearing two rings at once though so they would be worn seperate)

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  my Fiance has a brushed titanium and rose gold “engagement” and work wedding ring. He will also have a more expensive shiny white gold and hammered rose gold wedding band.

    My husband is in the sort of two ring category. He used a silver ring I’d given him as a present for our wedding pictures, etc because he hadn’t picked one out. Then he made one out of a nut that he wears most of the time (he often works with his hands, so it’s nice not to worry about it getting banged up). We’re also thinking about getting him this nifty glass ring we found, which would probably be for more weekend wear :). Especially since mens rings are often so affordable, I don’t see any reason not to get another!

    I wish my Fiance would let me get him a second band. He likes the modern beveled adge rings (which he has) but I love love love traditional domed bands. I’d love for him to have both, but I know it’s not going to happen.

    I say why not get him two?

    I don’t see anything wrong with two wedding bands if that’s what your Fiance wants to do. Smile

    My husband just has one and he wears it when he’s not at work. My grandpa almost got his finger ripped off by machinery due to his wedding ring and my great uncle did get his finger ripped off while working, so neither of us want to risk it.

    @heathuhhhhwebbbb:  

    if your Fiance works in a situation where a ring could get caught on something and pulled really hard, then he should not be wearing any type of ring to work at all. any metal could rip off a finger if the ring was caught and pulled hard enough. gold, silver, anything.

    the point about tungsten is that certain metals cannot be very easily cut off if it needs to be cut. but I’m not sure which metals those are — maybe tungsten and titanium and, not sure what else?
