    I love it when Matt finally has an opinion about anything related to the wedding, so I would like to find a pic of a ring he described over the weekend. I tried a few different searches, but was only able to find plain silver (or white gold). I was telling him about the thread on here with all kinds of links to men's ring sites and that I really like the look of the black Tungsten bands. He surprised me by saying that he was looking at them too and he thinks he wants one that is black with a tire tread engraved on it, so the tire treads shine silver, but the ring is black. I hope I am describing this clearly, but has anyone seen anything like it or know where I should look? I haven't been able to find one like he described... Thanks for your help, as always!!

        Yeah, I am not sure if he made it up or if he saw it somewhere. I am sure we could get it made if he made it up, but it doesn't seem so "out there" that it hasnt been done before...

          I know Amos would love this.... He picked out his band that I was ready to buy with a similar idea but the middle was a rope design it was kinda cool, but I know if there was one with the tire tread he would LOVE that one...
          Did you ask him where he saw it?

            Hmmmm. Perhaps I can find a different metal then.

            Off topic - are my pics huge? I tried to resize TWICE, but they still show big on my computer...

They also said if he was ever in the ER and they needed to cut it off for any reason they would not be able to. I thought that was a little scary but he didn't seem to mind.
              yeah, that worries me a little about tungsten.... it can't be cut...

                  Thanks. I made them thumbnail, but they show up almost the full screen on mine. At least they don't make it too wide, cuz I hate that!

                  Thanks for the help and if I find anything like that, I will be sure to post. I will have to ask FI where he saw it...

                      try some of these sites ...

                      Titanium Rings - Black Titanium Collection "Rocky Road" kind of looks tire treadish!
