My fiance is an engineer & needed something very sturdy. We went with tungsten carbide since it doesn’t scratch or bend & is very cheap (we got it for $30 on amazon). He says it feels “weird” to have a ring on, but that he’ll get used to it. He plans to wear it to work, but, if he didn’t want to, at least we didn’t spend a fortune on something he’ll never wear.

My husband doesn’t wear one. It’s comfortable for him to wear at his work (and actually dangerous) and he doesn’t otherwise wear jewelry so I don’t push it. We bought a cheapie for him to wear for our wedding ceremony and then it was put away.

Like women, we have budgets. Tell him his budget… Within that budget I would spend as much as I could- wearing it only “sometimes” isn’t a reason to diminish the budget, in my opinion. But never wearing it would make me reconsider.

We got a tungsten carbide ring on Amazon for I think 45 bucks.  It will end up in his underwear drawer probably 364 days a year  😛

My Fiance doesn’t like jewlery. His job will require that he does not wear a ring at times due to safety. Because of this, we are not going to spend a whole lot on his wedding band. If he decides he likes wearing one, we will get him a nicer one after the wedding. Maybe you could propose that to your FI?

I told my Fiance he HAS to wear a ring, although he didn’t really fight me on it, just said it’ll feel weird.  Luckily he didn’t have expensive taste.  Someone earlier today posted a message with a link to a website that sells non-metal rings that are safe for lots of jobs where people can’t wear rings, and they were like $6.

Maybe a wedding watch instead? He’d probably get more use out of it than a ring. The ring thing is a tradition, not a requirement. So if it’s really just not his thing, it’s not a big deal.

@septbride2012:  No, I get that he can’t wear it at work… what I’m saying is is he planning on wearing it during non-work hours. Going out, date night, etc? If he does plan on wearing during non-work activities, I don’t think the ring should cost any less than if he wore it all the time.

 

With all the said if he doesn’t ever really want to wear one at all… I wouldn’t get him one at all. But, if he wants to tatoo… err that’s more of a discussion you both need to have.

My husband got a tungsten carbide ring for $80 online, but rarely wears it. He cant at work, and I really dont care if he wears to tell you the truth. He does when we are going someplace nice or on vacation. I usually only wear mine when I leave the house, but sometimes I forget it.

Skip the ring. They aren’t required, contrary to popular belief.

My Fiance will not be wearing a ring after we get married.  We’ll still be married though lol.  If he doesn’t want to wear a ring, and can’t wear a ring most of the time (i.e., to work) anyway, then I wouldn’t stress about it too much.

I know a lot of guys in the trades, and they either don’t wear rings, wear their rings on weekends, or have tattoos. I think that’s your option. Don’t force him to wear a ring to work, it could be dangerous (my grandpa caught his ring on machinary and had to have his ring finger amputated).
