No, I'm not talking about my ring again. When David originally started thinking about wedding bands, he thought he linked tungsten. It's strong, durable, and reasonably priced (which is nice, since I'm more than a little worried that he'll lose it). We both liked the look of tungsten too:
But when we went to discuss the issues with my wedding bands with our jeweler, David saw the new Cobalt rings they have. They're similar to tungsten, but they look more like white gold:
He ended up finding one he really likes, so I might just end up buying that one even though it's quite a bit more expensive than the bands we looked at online. When he was thinking about tungsten I really wanted to find one on etsy, but it looks like the seller I was going to use no longer has tungsten bands. I do like the titanium bands they have, though:
David said he would be worried about not being able to try on the band and see it in person, though. I should probably be buying it within the next couple months, so we'll have to decide whether we should go with the more expensive cobalt band he liked at our jeweler (and just take the risk of him losing it), or go with one of the less expensive ones online that has a good return policy for if it doesn't fit or he doesn't like it.
Did you find your fiance/husband's wedding band online? If so, who did you use? And how did it work out for you?
