Plus the pic I linked to is like 5x magnification. I was thinking about the flashy aspect of it so I shrunk the pic down to a rough approximation of life size:



Now it seems a lot more 'normal' and not as obviously 'blingy', what do you think?

I still feel plain is too plain for me. I personally like the look of a Tungsten ring as well but I got a fat 'no' from the lady Titanium is OK and some of the other styles like Celtic or Mokagune / Japanese don't really appeal to me.

My thoughts:

Do YOU like it? If yes, get it.

Or better yet, let her pick it. It is an expression of her love for you. Yeah, it's kind of quaint, but who cares what anyone else thinks besides you and her?

Me? I have both. A plain gold band that was placed on my finger the day I got married, and another 'blingy' white gold band with 10 diamonds all lined up. I guess it's a total of a carat. My wife gave me that on our 10th anniversary. I really couldn't possibly care less what anyone thinks of either, since they were gifts from the most important person in my life, who's opinion I value above all others.

Edit: FWIW - I like the one you picked.

My 2 cents: While not really my style, wear what you want. If you like it, and your soon to be wife will let you have it, go nuts...

I would not choose that ring.

1. Not just because I find it unappealing and feminine now, but because I simply don't think the style will age well.

2. I don't know if this matters to you, but it seems you're looking for something unique. However, as someone who's engaged himself, I can tell you I've been seeing that ring a lot. It seems to be all over my fiance's wedding magazines (I think for certain it was featured prominently in the current The Knot).

I'd keep the diamonds off - but still get something a bit more unusual if that's important to you.

From reading up on the history of wedding bands, *any* men's wedding rings were pretty rare before WWII, but became part of the common American tradition with so many going off and dying or being away for years during the war. So in the 1920's perhaps the common thinking was that only a dandy man would have even a simple gold band.
I'm just busting your chops. Get what you like. I sometimes wear a Rolex with a diamond bezel and wear a solid gold Rolex Daytona every day, so I like things a bit flashy too. The only concern I have with your band is that if you are anything like me, the band will get beat up on the palm side. If the diamonds are not flush, they will also scratch things.

My ring was just delivered from Tungsten World. It's tungsten carbide , 8mm width, with a Sterling Silver inlay. It's called the "ZEUS". What do you think?

Go for a Comfort Fit Ring

Quote:
Comfort Fit Rings are rounded inside for the most comfortable fit to the finger. Because the edges of the inner part of the ring are not putting pressure on the finger, comfort fit rings "feel" looser than a traditional half ring, some people prefer to wear a ring with a snug fit. If that is the case, comfort fit rings should be ¼ of a size smaller than a regular ring, as long as the ring is under 8mm.

That ring is Comfort Fit and it feels great. It also has a good weight to it.

Having just seen the movie Casino again this week that made LOL

"Just about the time I'm coming out of jail...hopefully....you'll be coming out of your coma" lol

On the topic of the ring, I think keeping it simple and elegant will always be better in the long run IMO.

Good luck

...just as long as it's comfortable on your finger.

Save some cash and make your own ring from audio cable.

My Valhalla cable is both my wife, wedding ring and honeymoon. When we get married I will thread her around my finger.

Seesh I have not worn a wedding ring in 16 years of being married. I have rings my wife DOES make me wear when we go out fancy. Wearing anything other than a watch has NEVER ever been my thing.
She does not complain too much since her ring makes her pretty happy. Back in the day when I had some cash and REAL diamond connections I was able to get her a 1.5 carat stone E colored vs1 for a price I will NEVER see again.

BTW your ring looks fine be happy.

I agree in that I don't really like the diamonds.

Personally I'd get a titanium ring, I like quite a few designs where they have anodised colour bands or inlaid silver/gold/platinum.

i'm surprised no one has mentioned the violence, slavery, chaos, anarchy, death, bloodshed, instability and sorrow that is the product of the diamond trade.

egregious monopolist deBeers will tell you that theirs are not conflict diamonds, but they're lying through their teeth. not to mention they artificially inflate the value of diamonds by hording billions and billions of dollars worth of stones in their vaults.

diamonds: it's not just a scam, it's a death sentence for someone.

So if I buy an argyle diamond it must be dirty ?
