    HI., We almost got a white gold one-but come on-now with gold prices a men's ring in white gold with NO DIAMONDS was 499 and 599(the style he liked).

    So we got a tungsten one. Its brushed looking with the edges smooth-it was around 170. Its awesome b/c my FI's "style" is not shiny and bright-and this one was a darker grey color-not as shiny as the gold. Its really nice looking on him!

    I wonder if I should have bought one cheaper online or something?? Hmmmm...

    Good luck shopping :)

      No kidding! We origionally bought FI a white gold one... it was 600 + tax + the extended gold coverage, so just over 700 dollars.

      We returned it, and bought him a ring that looks exactly the same, only in titanium, for $15! Including shipping!

        We went w/ tungsten carbide so it won't scratch. It was $400 in the store, but we bought it online from a jeweler in L.A. for $108, which included it being engraved.

              i'd def. go w/ titanium or tungsten. i don't think either scratches. gold and platinum should be out - they'll get scratched too easily.
              from what I've read I think its a myth too.

              I read that tungsten & titanium are probably safer if someone's finger got crushed. Gold & platinum would bend & tungsten & titanium would stay in shape which would be safer for the finger.

              And ERs can cut them off.

              Some of the stuff I read was that jewelers probably tell people that because there is less money to be made off tungsten & titanium. Mike's ring came from the same website abbie posted. It's gorgeous & only cost $8.75. I'm sure the jewelry stores don't like that there is such an affordable option.

                FI and I just ordered 2 wedding bands for him. We were looking on the tungstenworld site. Then I turned over the laptop to FI, aka Frugal Dave. He looked up tungsten rings on slickdeals.net and was directed to amazon.com. We got him 2 tungsten rings (one which looked exactly like the $149.99 one we were about to order) for $29.99 each.

                And now he has 2 to choose from or a spare for when he loses one.

                I will let you know how they are (and post pics) when they arrive.
