Did anyone else buy a men's ring for their own wedding band?

Recommended Posts

After an unsuccessful endless search for a wedding band to match my ering, I decided to wear my ering on my right hand. However, I couldn't find a simple band that I liked. Who knew it would be so tough. I really didn't want a band with a lot of diamonds because my ering has plenty already but it seems like all the women's bands are too much diamond and not enough metal. So I started looking at men's rings and found the perfect one. Plus FI is happy since he wanted matching rings.

 

This is his.

And this is mine but it will have princess cut diamonds instead of round.

We haven't started looking... but I was thinking of doing something similair. I really like the one you have picked out for you!

 

I have a friend who bought a more traditional girl one with lots of diamonds... and rarely wears both of her rings because she feels its too much. I think I would be the same... so it makes more sense to buy one you will actually wear! Plus I think the whole matching thing is cute.

I had looked at them in the beginning. I thought every band I found did not enhance my e-ring but take away from it. I decided to actually get a band that I can wear independently of my e-ring depending on my mood.

 

My hands aren't the most attractive, so I wanted something a little thicker but the men's rings looked like I had man hands- a la seinfield style. I decided to do something a little more feminine in hopes of de-masculinizing my hands.

thanks. I really liked that he found a ring that said "lisa" You know? Plus, he knew me well enough to pick it out himself! AND, the symbols have meanings. (The lady who handmakes them researches the symbols on the rings.) Added to that, they are a globally conscious company and help build houses in the countries they get their stones from. Yes...my FI is a good boy! lol

Yup!!! I got a skinnier version of Shawn's! I'm so excited about it! Well, and I got it without diamonds (it's my second wedding band to wear when I can't wear my diamonds).

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
