My Dad couldn’t had to send my Mum his wedding ring back when he was deployed to Iraq for the military. As much as she wanted him to wear it, she would rather his life was safe, than risking it around machines.
As far as my Fiance, he doesn’t wear rings, but he wears necklaces. So we have discussed getting him a nice chain with a ring on it. Even looked at the One Ring for him. 😉 Just something he can enjoy.
A ring doesn’t mean they will/won’t be loyal. It’s all up to the guy. Besides, maybe down the road he will want a ring, when it isn’t a *requirement* for him.

My aunt and uncle got tattoo wedding bands. 😀 They came out really nice. I think my uncle has a job wear a wedding band could be a hazard. If it’s a viable option, it’s potentially cheaper than a metal wedding band.

A bee posted these rings earlier. They are no metal rings, flexiable & only 6 bucks!
Click on shop to see their rings!

Maybe just borrow something for the wedding…like his dads or something like that? My husband wears his, but it’s the only jewelry he wears and he picked it out. His friends wear theirs too, so I think that helped.
However, my dad has never and will never wear his ring. It’s not required, it’s definitely a choice.

Skip the ring- neither my hubby or I wear a wedding ring (and I don’t wear an engagement ring). Nobody noticed during the ceremony and we just skipped the whole with this ring business.

Mine is a roofer and doesn’t wear them either, but I wanted him to have it and just not wear it to work

I can see not wearing a ring while doing dangerous work, but I personally would want my husband to wear one when we’re out at night or on weekends. (my DH works on a computer all day, so this is not an issue for us)
What is it about the expensive rings that he likes? Is he set on a certain metal? Does he want stones? I just wonder if maybe there is a good compromise here. My DH’s ring was extremely expensive, but he had to have it lol!

Mine didn’t have an option. He wants me to wear a ring and take his name (both of which I’m happy to do) he can wear just a ring for me. It took us a while but after 10 different jewellers he decided on a tungsten one with a diamond in it.

@septbride2012: Can you show us some examples of what he liked? Maybe we can find something along that line/similar but in a better price range…
If my Fiance didn’t want to wear his ring I would first ask him if he would be willing to wear it on a chain around his neck. If not, I would probably buy him a different piece of jewellery – watch, pin, cuff links…

My husband doesn’t wear his a lot. He works on cars and travels a lot so I’m afraid he will lose it if he takes it on a long business trip. A marriage is more than a ring to me.

My Fiance doesn’t wear jewelry at all. Like period. Nothing. I’m fine with him not wearing a wedding ring if he doesn’t want to – but he will have one (nothing that costs a lot, but something to wear for the wedding and other formal events we go to). With his job, he can’t wear a ring – so he wouldn’t wear it there even if he was a jewelry guy. I figure I cant complain because I don’t wear my engagement ring to work much and I don’t always wear it out.
