My FH works in construction and I was trying to pick out a nice durable ring for him. We were looking at Tungsten, but heard it shatters easily. Any suggestions?

    Would you consider a silicon band? Enso rings are great!

    If he’s in construction he’ll like want a ring that can break easily so it doesn’t cause damage if it gets stuck in something. Tungsten can shatter because it has break points built into it in case it needs to be cut off in an emergency.

    Have you considered a nice ring ring for the ceremony and special occasionwear and a silicon band for every day wear? My uncle who’s a firefighter does this. He has a nice gold band that was used in the ceremony and wears on special occasions but he wears his silicon band for work/everyday wear.

    This exactly. I have seen some pretty gruesome incidences with wedding rings that don't just break.

    Also have you considered tattooed wedding bands?

    Agree with this! Get him a nice ring for special occasions and your wedding day and a silicon one for everyday wear. Enso is recommended but I hated them, they were too expensive but they look cheap up close amazon is the way to go!

    My FH is in EMS/Fire and he will have a nice wedding band and then will be wearing a Qalo ring. They are great for hands on jobs. I also have one to wear on weekends when I clean and do stuff around the house.

    My FH works in a warehouse and we got him a silicone ring from Modern Gents to wear at work! I would suggest that because I’ve also heard horror stories about rings when working around heavy equipment 😳

    Tungsten can chip and shatter. I’d do silicone for everyday and then something of his choice for “nice” occasions if he wants.

    I'd go with silicon when he's on the job site and a nice one for the days he's home, on dates, not at work etc.

    My FH is in construction and I got him a silicone band for everyday. He is able to work with it and it doesn't effect him in anyway. However I will get him something different for special occasion/non work days if he wants.

    If he works in construction I highly recommend he wear a silicon band to work. Accidents with rings on can be gruesome. My husband works in a kitchen and wears a silicon ring to work and a nice band we used for the ceremony on the weekend. We got a pack of 4 silicon rings on amazon for like $10. They’re great quality!

    My husband has his "regular" band (tungsten, got it at Zales) but he's a bodybuilder/personal trainer so he obviously needs something he can wear to work as well. He got two of the silicone bands just to wear to work. They look just like a metal band, but they don't run the risk of breaking (breaking themselves or breaking a finger - I've seen weird things happen!)

    Definitely suggest a nice silicone ring for work and maybe a metal nicer one for other occasions. qualo rings I’ve been told are better quality silicone rings.

    Tungsten is really durable. That's what my fiancé picked.

    My fiance got a tungsten ring as well, but will probably only wear it at home/during the weekends. He's always doing something different (refrigeration, sheet metal, electrical, demo, etc) so he doesn't really want to wear a real ring at work, and he hates the look of silicone bands *shrug*

    My hubby is in factory work but is allergic to metal. We got saferingz silicone rings, they are a but more expensive if you get the metallic ones like I did (because they definitely look more like real metal) He wears them all the time, He got a stainless steel but it still breaks him out. Saferingz metal style were $40 for 3 and they are sooo nice and look real.
