I probably won’t be buying a wedding band for Fiance until at least another year from now, but we’ve started looking so I can get a feel for what he likes. He’s particular to symmetrical designs and LOVES black diamonds and tungsten.
So far, his top picks (both from Littman Jewelers) have been these two:
I preferred the latter on him as I think it looks more special, but I’m pretty much going to go with whatever he seems to like the most (though I do plan to make it a surprise – he shouldn’t be the only one who gets awesome bling!)
What did you get your man? Pictures highly appreciated, especially if you have one of him wearing it!

Here’s my husband’s next to my rings:
We were having my wedding band custom made, and on one of our visits to the jeweler to check the custom design he saw a version of it in two-tone gold and he was like “I would really like this if it was all white gold instead of white and yellow!” So, I had it ordered in all white gold, and he loves it!
He was never really excited about the ring thing, which bothered me because i wanted him to be excited to wear a wedding band! But once we found this one he loved it and got excited about it. 🙂
Here it is on his hand:

Darling Husband looked at more rings than you can imagine before we custom ordered his. It was nuts.
I also just realized I only have pics of his ring with mine lol

@bluebonnet: Wow, all 3 rings are stunning and also quite cohesive! It is definitely nice to see them get excited about the ring hehe.
@FutureMrsChaney: Is his ring tungsten?
@Stammie16: Mine loves designs like that, too.
@mwitter80: Oooh, I like all the diamonds in his. I have to admit, I have such a strange obsession for men’s rings with jewels in them.

I originally got hium a white gold band about 5mm. He is NOT hard on jewelry, his job doesn’t affect his jewelry and he takes it off to do anything that would. However, within a short amount of time, it was all scratched up. He doesn’t like things to be scratched in anyway…you shoudl see how he treats his car….anyway, we decided ot buy him a tungsten carbide ring instead. He got a gorgeous 6mm one from Titanium Kay and it still looks brand new. Honestly, he even *tried* to scratch it up and I stood back and cringed. But it refused to scratch. Plus, it was less that 100 bucks. So, now I plug tungsten to anyone who asks. And for the fun of it, I got me the smae version only thinner and wear it camping and hiking and stuff.
ETA: sorry, i have no pics but I will try to get one. He will certainly think I am weird though!

6mm Tungsten carbide. He liked the darker color and didnt want anything expensive at all.

@mammamia: Hmm, I’ll keep that in mind! My Fiance doesn’t do anything that would easily mess a ring up (his desk job is even deskier than mine, lol) but it’d be disappointing to spend a lot on a ring and have it get scratched really easy. Maybe we’ll keep looking at some more tungsten rings!
@pinkshoes: I like it! Simple, but very nice.

My Fiance wanted a 4mm polished yellow gold band and that’s what he got!

My Fiance wanted something different and unique. He initially wanted a coin ring but then he wanted a black ring. Luckily, I found a place that combined both!

@Dub D: I’ve never heard of coin rings!
My Fiance was VERY specific about what he wanted: it had to be 4 mm wide, 2 mm thick, have squared off edges, comfort fit, be brushed 14 k white gold. This wasn’t easy to find, and I got a few quotes to have it custom made (estimate: $800). I found what he wanted online for less than half of that, and was a little wary about ordering, but it turned out great:
I ordered from http://www.e-weddingbands.com/ and I would recommend them to other people – it worked really well for us!

thanks for the tip on the tungsten! i am not very familiar with the guys rings and glad to see this, esp the price since my fiance had HUGE fingers and is the mechanic type and will have to take it off for work and everything. I dont want to spend too much when I cant say he will wear it like i wear mine!

We haven’t got ours yet but he likes the plain black ones or another one he wants is a camo wedding band.
