Hmmmm…first thing that comes to mind is brushed metal, but it’s still metal. I’ve also heard of ceramic rings and black plated Tungsten, which would look like this:

I know Titanium is a metal but it’s kinda unique. It can be brushed so it is not shiny AT ALL. It’s actually quite dull like that. In fact, they have black titanium. I think it looks pretty spiffy.

What about a jade ring or some other ring made out of stone?

Get him a titanium ring. My Fi and I just looked into them and we didn’t like the fact that they werent very shiny, so this would be great for your Fiance. On another good note they are virtually indestructable……good luck!

The only thing I would be hesitant about with tungsten and titanium is that they aren’t resizable and are difficult to remove in an emergency…personally, that would kinda scares me, especially if he’s working with his hands. Frown

If you want something that isn’t going to break, a metal will probably be your best option though. Platinum is one of the most durable and it has a nice heft to it which I think gives a masculine feel to it. Besides matte and brushed finishes, there are also hammered finishes and what’s called a stone finish, which is a more rugged looking matte finish. Here are some pics for inspiration!

We got my husband a tungsten band – it has a brushed finish and isn’t “shiny” but it still looks presentable with a suit.  Let me see if I can find a pic!

We are getting Fiance a tungsten ring with a carbon fiber inlay! It is still partly metal but the metal that is showing is brushed!
