I know there are lots of Bees who might have rings to share or who are good at finding things!
Fiance and I went wedding band shopping today (for the first time) but there is nothing in the stores that he likes! He wants to use his Dad’s old wedding ring – which is a yellow gold devil head with rubies for eyes. No joke. I really, really don’t like the idea for several reasons 🙂
So, if you could give me some ideas to show Fiance that would be awesome! He doesn’t like “normal” rings in the stores. He is super outdoorsy, amost a “mountain man” type. He loves fishing, hunting, hiking, building log cabins from scratch, etc.
Any ideas would be appreciated

@MademoiselleL: How much does he love the outdoors? I totally agree, devil head = no bueno. I like @Taylor4:‘s suggestion of a wooden ring, or there are also some very intereting camo rings. Here, here, and here.

Maybe one of those rings that has a tree-like pattern on it. Some Etsy designers have textured rings that evoke the feelike of tree bark, and others do rings that incorporate the pattern of your fingerprint. Either of those would be more unique and earthy.

tungstenor titanium is great, we loved the wood and even the carbon fiber inlays are awesome…and more manly..i got my fiance his ring already..check sites like esty or even ebay…i got my fiance and i matching tungsten rings on ebay to see if he can wear them to work ( hes a chef an hit heat makes most metals melt or heat up). Heres some faves:
I would maybe do a google image search on all things he likes( camo, tree, etc) and see what you come up with

Thanks for the ideas! I will show him some of those Fable Designs ones with the wood as well.
I showed him the camo rings last night and he loved them! He really liked these 2:
I just want to make sure that the camo part isn’t just a sticker – can’t tell from the info on the website! I totally appreciate these ideas – thank-you!

I love PP’s ideas about the wood rings and fingerprint rings!
I’ll share DH’s ring, because it is a little bit unsual and he says it reminds him of leather that has been braided (but still has a classic look)

Fable ceramic will not scratch up as much and is much lighter than many metal suggested. Fiance is well outdoorsy is an understatement since he works 85 hours a week in the outdoor adventure field (he use to be an areospace machinest as well and he knows what jewelers tell him is often lies). The quality and honesty of fable is very accurate. Also make sure he knows how to remove his band in an emergency like broken fingers. Ceramic can be cracked off with a vise and fable have a great video on how to do this.
