Diamonds On A Man's Wedding Band?
Q: We just took a gander at wedding bands the other day and I saw a nice
plain one that I expected would be perfect for the future husband. He
balked and said no, he wanted a band that had diamonds.
This was completely unexpected. Maybe he's just jerking my chain, but he
may have actually seen a men's ring like that which he liked, or he just
came up with the idea out of the blue.
Anyway, I wanna know if anyone else is getting or has gotten a men's
wedding band with diamonds. I can't even picture how the diamonds would
be included or attached. Everything I envision is flashy, tacky, or
laughable. In other words, I hate the idea, but before I pursue the
issue I want independent outside counsel!
A:My fiance didn't like my idea of matching plain gold wedding bands. He liked the matching part, but he wanted some sort of design. Fine. I found a design I really liked (sans diamonds) and showed it to him. He thought it was great -- but do you think we could put a diamond *here*? (ack!) Since we're a little short on cash, I suggested we skip the diamonds for now and go for something *really* nice on our 10th anniversary. I have yet to hear back on that count, but I'm hopin'. I figure if I have to wear diamonds they might as well be nice ones. My only suggestion to you is try to negotiate the matter. Your bands don't have to match (I'm still trying to convince *my* fiance of this) and he is the one who'll be wearing it. Ask him what he has in mind, and go with him to look at it, if possible. If you don't like it, come up with alternatives that you *do* like that are of a similar style or "feel". Well, here goes someone who actually likes the diamond band for a man. Joe and I picked out a great engagement ring for me that is a large center stone with inset diamonds in the band on either side they are small but look great. I am also getting the matching wedding band and he really likes the idea of having the band like mine and since we tried it on I almost want him to wear it now, it looks great! He likes the idea a lot exspecially since we went to a friend of his wedding last weekend and he also had a diamond band. Both of them are suit and tie kind of guys and the rings just seem to go but I think it really is an individual decision if he wants diamonds and likes the look let him get what he wants if you can afford it HE is the one wearing it remember.
