We decided to use tungsten rings as wedding bands. We bought them at larsonjewelers.com I probably should have cleaned off my counter before taking the picture.

Here are mine -- the first picture is my ering and wedding band. The second is my DH's wedding band and my 2nd ring .
The story behind my rings - I actually didn't even know if I wanted a ring to begin with (sort of funny that I have 3 now ). I never used to wear rings and thought I didn't want to.. I work in healthcare and have to wear gloves and pick kids up, so I kept thinking a traditional ering wouldn't work for me.. Then, at the first store we went to, I saw this ring and fell in love with it. The diamonds sit really low and the platinum surrounds the stone so it's really smooth. My center stone is actually my great-grandmother's diamond (she died when I was 6, so it meant a lot to incorporate that in my ring), so we designed a similar ring around the stone. We had the wedding band made to fit against it.
The second "wedding band" is an eternity band and I absolutely love this ring. I thought I would only want to wear a wedding band to work, so DH got me this ring .
Now, I have all 3 (I wear the eternity on my right hand) and I never want to take them off . So I went from never wearing a ring to major bling .
And I'm proud that we sort of helped to design all of them .
Now here are my attempts to be a photographer:

My diamond is my fiance's great grandmother's - it's from the early 1900s and was actually cut with other diamonds. I love that it has such a history! He took the diamond out of another ring and had it set in this platinum band
And I definitely agree these pictures don't do the rings justice. Mine is much sparkilier in person!

we just ordered our bands yesterday so here's mine (but having it designed w/ diamonds all the way around in an eternity band)
and FI's (has a fine milgrain finish on either side of the hammered metal that matches my e-ring)

I absolutely love my ring and think my FI did a wonderful job picking it out!
It has a 1.5 carat round brilliant diamond in the middle and .5 carat of diamonds along the side!
The photo might be a little small but the sparkle definately isn't!
