Carbon Fiber Wedding Rings???
Posted 01 March 2009 - 01:24 PM
My FI and I are having a MAJOR fight about his choice in wedding bands. He desperately wants a tungsten Carbon Fibre band because he thinks it looks cool. He is absolutely obssesed with cars and has "suped" his car to have pretty much carbon fiber everything! I personally think that he is going through a phase, and 2-3 years down the road he won't like his ring. I also wanted him top have a ring that can be re-sized, and I want his ring to be gold....am I getting mad over nothing I just want this to be an everlasting ring and not one that he won't want to wear 3 years down the road? PLEASE HELP

After looking in about 8 more stores he found something different that he likes better.
I wouldn't stress over the small things, and don't let it cause strife between you too, it's not worth it. I think he should get what he wants, you want him to wear it, right?

FI wanted one too but ended up getting a gold one and if i'm honest i'd have prefered the carbon fibre one it looked better lol
Let him get what he wants you wouldn't be happy if he said you should have something you didn't want.

Another thing to think about is carbon fiber comes in many colors....how would he feel about that....here's a pic of a silver and black one.

My FI is getting the TrewEdge Trew Tungsten ring for about $800 (they're pretty much the top of the line as far as tungsten goes) and he gets one free size replacement in his lifetime. They're a lot nicer in person, so you may want to check them out.
I don't think you should force your FI to get something that doesn't resonate with him at all. I'm sure you wouldn't want an engagement ring or wedding band that you didn't like! Maybe you guys can go shopping together and find something that works for both of you. My FI loves ridiculous looking watches that I usually think are tacky, but if we look at enough watches we always find something we both agree is nice.
GL! Let us know how it goes

I think if that's the ring he wants, then that's the ring he should get. Why would you want to force him into wearing a ring he didn't love for the rest of his life? You got what you wanted for your e-ring ... imagine he'd freaked out when you said what type of ring YOU wanted??
This is my FI's actual ring (sorry I JUST took these and this was the best setup I could think of)...
He had it sandblasted so the outside isn't as shiny as the inside. And it's a rounded, comfort-fit model.

I think sometimes, as brides we get so caught up in every detail that we forget that there is also a groom. And he should be able to have some say in the ring that he gets to wear.
This is the one my husband has and he gets compliments like crazy on it.
