imsoon2bemrsb :  Buy it from amazon!!! There is no need to buy it from a Jeweler and pay 10-100X’s the cost. Many people buy their rings from non-jeweler.

imsoon2bemrsb :  If he’s telling you what he wants, there’s no reason to feel guilty! There’s also no reason to pay a huge upcharge just for the brick and mortar experience, as the PP said.

imsoon2bemrsb :  I bought Darling Husband a tungsten ring from Amazon. He really really wanted a Batman ring so thats what he got. It was all of $40.

However since he works a physical job we also got him a silicone ring for work.

My husband picked a tungsten band from amazon too and I felt the same way you do because I have a more pricey band I felt bad not spending much on his. He said he knows he’ll probably be rough on it so he didn’t want me spending a lot on it in case he damages it or loses it. He tried one on at a jeweler that was I think around $200 that looks exactly like the one we got him from Amazon for like $12. I say if your fiancé is fine with it go with the cheaper one.

slomotion :  A Batman ring? I know so many guys who would be uber-jealous of this! lol okay and me too a little 🙂

Amazon is awesome, I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping on Amazon. And I have a slight book addiction. If you can get a great deal from Amazon, go for it. You’re getting your partner the ring he wants- if yours came from a jewellers and his came via Amazon, that’s nbd at all.

If he works on a ranch and is likely to get his finger caught in or crushed by any equipment, I would suggest either a silcon ring or no ring at all. Sorry – but I worked in ER too long, and saw enough finger avulsions to know that I would never want to wear a ring in a situation where you’re using heavy equipment. Google “finger avulsion” or “finger degloving’ to see what I’m talking about. Just don’t eat lunch first.

Besides that, if he wants a cheap Tungston ring, let him have what he wants! It’s not the price of the ring, or where it comes from – it’s the meaning behind it that’s important. I’ve always said I would have worn a piece of string if my hubby had proposed with that, because he’s the most wonderful person in the world for me – and I just wanted to spend the rest of my life with him – I didn’t care about the price of the ring. Actually, we were in University, and my engagment ring only cost $125 (it was marked down from $185) – so I certainly didn’t marry him for his money!

RobbieAndJuliahaha :  YUP! Sounds super easy but he was very particular about which logo he wanted on the ring. (the one from the Nolan trilogy, FYI.)

There’s probably more selection on Ebay, and overstock.com

imsoon2bemrsb :  my Darling Husband doesn’t wear any kind of jewellery, so we weren’t sure he’d be comfortable wearing a wedding ring. He therefore got a titanium ring from a high street jeweller and turns out he quite likes it. My wedding ring was like 12 times as expensive  as his and I’ve offered to buy him a gold or platinum one as a present, but he’s happy with what he’s got and says we should spend our money on something better.

My husband also wanted a simple and cheap tungesten carbide ring. I got his on Etsy!

imsoon2bemrsb :  I bought my husband a $12 tungsten ring from Amazon while he bought me a 4.72 ct diamond (6.5 tcw custom setting with bands).  He loves it and I don’t lose any sleep at night 🙂

Ugh….finger avulsion {shivers}. At least tungsten is really brittle, while titanium is not. So, for crush-injuries the ring will likely just crack into pieces. Does nothing about degloving risk, but at least it is better than a precious metal…right?.
