My fiance has been very clear that he didn't want a gold band ... he wanted something sturdier. He's been wearing a tungsten band ever since we got engaged, so I wanted something special for our wedding day & for special ocassions.This is beautiful, it matches my bridal set (engagement & wedding band) so well. Placing them next to each other it's very difficult to tell that his isn't white gold!It's tougher than gold, but much lighter than tungsten. It has enough sparkle without being over the top for a guy.He normally wears a size 14 & the 13.5 seems to be almost the same size.He will not be wearing this every day, as he works with his hands, and might damage the diamonds ... but for someone that doesn't work with their hands it would be great as an every day band. It doesn't have to be just a special ocassion ring.I'm thrilled with the ring & can't wait to see it on his finger at our wedding!!
