Wedding Ring options

Recommended Posts

So I'm looking for good wedding ring options for my fiance. Originally he was set on getting a Tungsten ring because it's in our price range and supposedly indestructible. But just recently, our friend who had a Tungsten ring was working in his garage and when the ring accidentally was dropped on the concrete floor, it broke. My fiance is constantly doing manual labor and needs a ring that will last long even if he drops it when he takes it on and off. We're on a budget but the ring, as a symbol, is very important to us because we plan to have them blessed by the priest from the church that he grew up attending before our wedding in sunny California. We want to find a good, durable, and budget-friendly ring. Any input about options other than Tungsten would be great.

My husbands wedding ring is made of titanium.  There are pros and cons I think to each and every material you choose.  He thought he would never really wear his ring so we didn't want to spend too much money on it, and decided that if later on he would wear it we would get a better one (his only cost $30 on Overstock.com).  They say that tungsten is indestructible, but that is not always true.  The one downside to some rings is that they can't be resized or engraved, such as Tungsten or Titanium.  I would say the best thing would be to try lots of rings on and find what feels most comfortable and will be durable.

If you aren't going with tungsten I'd say titanium is the way to go. I don't really know what "look" or "style" you're going for so I wont make any recommendations beyond that you should check out Hearts On Fire's Men's Wedding Bands page. Most of the rings I looked at are titanium and in the $500 price range.

 

Good Luck!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
