What kind of ring did you buy him?

Recommended Posts

Hub has a black tungsten carbide ring, and I bought a thin silver coloured one for myself, but I actually had an allergic reaction to it and ended up sending it back and getting a titanium one instead.  I like titanium and tungsten because they're a little more durable than gold, but as I learned (the hard way I might add!), if you have nickel allergies then stay away from tungsten because they usually use nickel as a binder in tungsten carbide rings.  If you're worried about allergies, titanium all the way!  If allergies aren't an issue, then I think it just comes down to the style of the ring itself.  I will say though since I've had both types of rings that tungsten looks like a dark grey, looks VERY different from white gold, but titanium looks only a shade darker.  When I wear it with my engagement ring (which is white gold) it isn't nearly as noticable that it's a different colour.

 

HTH!!

We bought white gold for him.

You can't cut tungsten, and it close to impossible to cut titanium, so if your hubby works with hands or play some sports where his finger can get caught, I would not recommend either. I feel white gold is more safe due to that issue. If anything it can easily be cut off his finger. Tungsten will shutter if you need to free his finger, but you wont be able to put it back together. Also both of those metals can't be resized. So if he will gain some weight down the road he might have to get a new ring if you go with tungsten or titanium. I hope it helps

We choose to go with titanium.  The reason we chose this was the price.  We were able to purchase one from overstock.com for about 60 dollars with shipping included.  My FI doesn't think he will wear a ring all that much.  He works in the oilfield and isn;t allowed to wear rings out there so he wont be wearing it to work, so there was no need to worry about cutting it.  We decided that if he does want to wear a ring more often then we will pay the money to purchase a gold one.

FI was so excited about tungsten for months (because he works with his hands and thought Tungsten was better for those reasons), but somehow left with a white gold band today. Don't know how that happened (lol) but for me, I was concerned about the tungsten cracking in two if it should absorb a heavy impact, or even worse, his inability to get the ring off at all in an emergency! Or weight gain...

I used to work at the Jewellery stores for a while and many couples would come with intentions to buy stainless steel, tungsten or titanium rings and many would change their mind and go with white gold after hearing about all the pros and cons of each metal.

We got him a Titanium, for anumber or reasons, 1st the price, he has lost every ring that I've got him so we didn't want to pay too much for one that he may lose eventually. 2nd we plan on getting a white gold ring for our anniversary, I need (hehe) an eternity band to go a long with my E-ring and wed band, to complete to look, and we agreed that he will get another band to wear for special occasions. Win Win ;)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
