    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!
