    Ok, so I'll admit I am completely clueless when it comes to men's wedding bands. So my questions are: what did your FH pick out for a wedding band? What was it made of? My FH is considering a stainless steel band, which is cost effective at $99 but I was wondering if stainless steel bands are like titanium bands as in, you can't resize them. Do any of you happen to know if that's the case? Ideally, I would like for him to have a white gold band.

    Thanks in advance! :)

        It's completely up to his taste!! My FH works with his hands all day; so he wants something simple, unique and durable.
        We are looking at titanium bands...
        I am leaving it up to FH to lead me to what he likes; I want him to WANT to wear it. =)

        And.. I am not sure about the resizing on those. Just make sure that you get FH measured by a good jeweler before you buy the ring if you don't want to worry about resizing. I am sorry I can't help more!

        Good luck and let us know what you decide!

            We bought a tungsten carbide. It can't be resized, but it also doesn't scratch, which is so nice! It looks brand new all of the time. It is a bit heavier than the others, but my FI loves it! We went into a jewelers and tried it on and got the right size. It was $400 there, but I ordered the exact one online from Click the image to open in full size.

              has your man been on the computer to check out rings?? that was the best most easiest thing for me.. michael started looking, and got really into it.. he found the ring he wants on his finger for the rest of his life (of course it ended up being the most expensive one), but im happy to know he loves it!..instead of guessing.

                  Hi :) Just wanted to say hello Date Twin


                  FI has not picked out his ring yet. We will probably do that around the end of the year. Good luck!

                    My FI also got a tungsten carbide ring. He really loves it and it was a steal at $150. we got it from this website: Titanium Rings | Tungsten Rings | Titanium Wedding Ring

                    They have had excellent service and are extremely fast. His ring is awesome, I'll post a pic when we get it back from being engraved.

                      Men are very strange with rings...many are afraid of them so they keep them simple (this was my guy in the past). We are having the jeweler of my ER do both our bands. I have spent months showing him rings he didn't like. I came across one that matched what we are making me but in a very masculine style and we have asked him to make it more square than round and change the diamonds to baquettes with a matte white gold versus a shiny (more masculine per my guy). Never thought I would see him in Diamonds, but he wanted this to be "special"

                      There are so many options out there...just show him things you see that match your/his taste and let him choose.
                      Good Luck
