    My husband has a plain gold band that we dipped white gold. I have no idea how many mm it is but it’s pretty thin. It cost us $350 at a locally owned jewelry store and I talked the guy down to $250.

    My FH just wanted the very traditional yellow gold band. He got a rounded comfort fit. I tried to talk him into at least platinum (as I like the idea of matching bands) but he wanted super traditional.

    My fi went with tungsten and it was cheap at like 100.We went with that as he is a construction worker and needed something heavy duty. However, we were told it wouldn’t scratch or anything and less than a year later his ring looks like crap

    My guy has a stainless steel wedding ring. Originally he was going to go with Tungsten but when he tried them on he didn’t like the thickness of them.

    Ceramic – he liked that he could squeeze it with a vise and shatter it if needed…..yeah, he messes up his hands frequently!

    my guy has a 10k white gold and only con is that it has to be redipped…like the brushed finish on the higher parts because it hides the scratches

    My hubby has a tungston ring. He works with his hands all day long and doesn’t want somehing that can easily be dented or damaged. I actually realy like the look of his though…very manly.

    My husband has an 18k (I think) grey gold band with a brushed finish. He liked the grey color of tungsten, but I wasn’t a fan of tungsten for the same reasons you stated. He also had sticker shock and tungsten was more along the price he had expected. I like platinum in general since you don’t have to worry about loss of metal and re-dipping like white gold. Neither of us are fans of yellow gold. So we talked to our jewler who made my e-ring and they suggested grey gold. It’s gold with palladium (or some other element in the platinum family?) alloy and other alloys so it takes on the properties of platinum/palladium and it was a reasonable cost for both of us and had the grey color to it that Darling Husband liked. When you do a high gloss polish it is pretty white though, so he can switch it up as his taste changes since it’s just a simple polish change.

    Here’s a photo of his ring for reference:

    My husband got a yellow gold band after trying on a TON of others.  His was a splurge, compared to mine, but I figured it was only fair, since I already had an engagement ring that I’m in love with – he should have a ring he loves too.

    Darling Husband got tungsten.  Partly because it was what we could afford, but also because of it’s durability.  Darling Husband would have trashed a gold band by now.

    Given the symbolism, I can’t really ever imagine it feeling “cheap” or losing it’s sentimental value.  What gives it sentimental value is the fact that he received it on our wedding day, not the the material it is fabricated from.  To be honest, it is so heavy and always looks so perfect that I can’t imagine it ever seeming cheap.  But, TETO I guess.

    As of this second he will be getting a titanium ring. It’s the first one he has seen that he really likes, and he has yet to find another one he loves.
