    Post Wedding bands for men... what do you like?

    What kind of band/ring do you prefer?

    Something simple? Something with diamonds in it? Silver? Gold?

    My friend bought her husband a band made of Tungsten and the ring is pretty nice! They've been married for over a year now, and it has no visible scuff or scratch marks and he is engineer. I'd say that it's a pretty solid ring.

    So yeah, I was just wondering what kind of band the majority of men would prefer.

    And for those of you who are married, feel free to share yours if you'd like.

    Plain, or fairly plain, and any metal besides yellow gold. Titanium is great if you can afford it.


    There was one?

    If you are a blue collar guy eventually you will rip it off your finger more than once and stop wearing by the 3rd year your married because of this if you havent already torn you finger off.

    But titanium is good and tungsten is suppose to be super hard and that the new rage.

    Lucky for me I had a white gold one that was thin so when I hooked and it crimped around my finger I was able to get some side cutter, cut it off, and use plier to pry it off my finger. Then I only had to deal with a deformed finger instead of a missing one.

    I did white gold, but with a hammered look. That way when it gets beat up it still looks the same.

    This is pretty much what I have and I like it. No diamonds or anything (which bug me on men's rings), simple, but still unique and not boring.

    Re: Wedding bands for men... what do you like?

    That's an easy answer for me...none! But when I did wear one it was just a simple band, the simpler the better. I've never been big on wearing rings for some reason.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    straight up simple titanium band that cost $50 that looks like a stainless steel spacer. Literally zero frills unless you count the comfort contour thing on the inside... Took some getting use to as the edges can bite since they aren't rounded off. Titanium is super light weight...

    Re: Wedding bands for men... what do you like?

    Mine is a pretty simple gold band with 5 small diamonds in it. other than my watch it's the only piece of jewelry I will ever wear so I wanted something that looked nice. Plus as much as you wind up spending on your wife's ring you deserve something nice too right? Looks like this without as many diamonds in it and just a smooth non-beveled edge.

    Re: Wedding bands for men... what do you like?

    mine titanium - basically I requested the cheapest one they had and it was one sale for $50.

    but as that other guy mentioned, titanium doesnt give before your skin and bone do ... I'm at a desk 95% of the time so its not a big deal, but anyone working with rotating equipment probably wont want to wear one at all.

    you don't want anything too fancy/feminine... so go with something that's like this, that has fists on it:
