    This was a little spendy but I figured it was something i was going to wear for the rest of my life, it might as well be nice. 7mm Palladium (not the white gold pictured, Plladium is slightly darker which I liked)

    Did not really take my wifes choice of ring into account when purchasing. We both agreed that it was insignificant for them to match or be similar in any way.

    1. I don't know anyone who does this. I travel with my wedding ring. (Why wouldn't I?) And I don't work out or typically do chores wearing my ring and that's fine. My wife doesn't expect that I wear a ring 24/7. I do generally wear it when I leave the house.

    2. No. I don't think the bands need to match. If we wanted them to match/coordinate, neither of us would have had a band we actually like. My wife has a white gold band with inset diamonds that coordinates with her engagement ring. I didn't want white gold and definitely didn't want a bunch of diamonds. She didn't want something so simple (nor tungsten).

    I love how absurdly durable my tungsten ring is. The weight is barely noticeable (it's only a few grams, after all) and after cleaning it looks brand new. I used to drive a WRX with an aluminum shift knob and thought it was scratching my ring. Then I remembered that aluminum is way too soft to scratch tungsten and realized that the aluminum was actually scratching onto the ring and just needed to be cleaned off.

    That's it! That's my exact same ring! Crazy!

    We also camp a lot and/or are near MN Lake Country. And I generally like to do hands on/handy type things. I like wearing a ring quite a bit so it was my idea to get the silicon rings. My wife's ring is a very old family heirloom and is irreplaceable so we both just wear silicon when we travel.

    We both have white gold rings, but less so because we felt the need to match and more that it is the metal I wanted and her heirloom ring was already white gold.

    Edit: 30 years old and married 3 years.

    White gold with yellow gold inlay.

    I am not a big jewelry guy, so I wanted something minimalist but with a little style. Found this one on etsy. It was pretty inexpensive, not that I was opposed to spending some money on it, it just happened to be the one I really liked.

    I have a very thin platinum ring from a brand that I won't mention (but we all know). Honestly it just looks like a washer.

    (2) Did you take into account what color(s) your SO's engagement ring and/or wedding band is as well?

    I'm leaning toward traditional gold varieties (yellow, rose or white), probably pretty standard shapes and minimal designs, but am still debating all of it.
    1) No, I don't have another ring for working out. I just take the one I have off, do my workout, and then put it back on. If some honey wants to chat me up at the gym, fine. But in all honesty I'm normally there to workout and not spending a lot of time chit chatting with randoms.

    2) No. Both of us independently wanted white gold rings. Her rings are quite different from mine with multiple diamonds, settings, etc. I wanted a simple band. So there is no matchy matchy going on.

    10mm Tungsten here

    Late 30s. Known the Mrs. since 2001. Went exclusive in 2008. Married 5 years in October.



    Wife has a matching, smaller wedding ring to offset her engagement ring.
