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).
