The Day My Hubby Replaced His Wedding Band
We met when I was nineteen. And I’ve never thought that a lifetime later, a ring, a wedding band, would mean so much to me.
I’ve learned that as much as I enjoy material things, I’d never give them too much meaning or place them above all else.
When it came to our wedding rings, we’ve replaced our original rings a few times over the course of our marriage in order to upgrade which was always fun!
I never thought twice about it and never held on to the memory of the rings we said, “I do” with. After all, they were just rings, right? Then about 20 years ago, I bought him this ring.
It’s a beauty for sure. I was so proud when I bought this for him. He hardly ever wears it! I knew why, but it still bothered me! My hubby is so hard on jewelry for some reason I could never understand.
He said he finds wearing jewelry uncomfortable too which in a way, I can agree at times it can be. He had that ring scratched up within a month of wearing it occasionally! So, he took it off only to be rarely worn again. Poor guy – he tried!
I wear my wedding rings daily and mine still look great after years of wear, but for some reason, he beats the daylights of jewelry!
I never really expressed to him just how much it means to me to have him wear it daily. It’s not about the ring or the diamonds – it was more symbolic than that for me. It’s about the connection the ring symbolizes! And that’s what was important to me.
So, I thought, what I can do to get him to wear his wedding band more often. Ah! A lightbulb moment.
A good friend of ours got married a few years back, and I remembered asking him about his ring. The color and style caught my eye, and I was very interested to learn more about since I knew it wasn’t made of gold or silver but rather a unique composition of some metals.
He said it was made of a very durable material called Tungsten. Of course, I had to investigate this and immediately went to the net and found this.
Tungsten, also known as wolfram, is a chemical element with symbol W and atomic number 74. The word tungsten comes from the Swedish language tungsten directly translatable to heavy stone though the name is volfram in Swedish to distinguish it from Scheelite, which in Swedish is alternatively named tungsten.
I was intrigued and after some research, I knew this would be the perfect ring for my hubby!
Here are some specs about the ring and where you can get one too!
- Nickel Binder, Cobalt Free, Comfort Fit & Scratchproof, for active Men who work w/ their Hands
- Perfect as a Wedding Ring or Anniversary, Fathers Day, or even an “I Love & Appreciate You” Gift
- Lifetime Guarantee covers Replacement for size changes or Accidental Breakage (Not valid w/coupons)

Tungsten carbide will never lose its shine, will not scratch, and is 10 times harder than 14k Gold! A great alternative to expensive gold or platinum rings. Lifetime replacement guarantee against breakage and free size replacements.
Here are some more close-up shots.
This ring fits his hand perfectly! He wears it every day too and says it is so comfortable that he doesn’t even realize he is wearing it!
Doesn’t this wedding band look great? I’m thrilled he is happy with it. That’s all that matters!
Your wedding rings means so much. It’s a symbol of your love and faithfullness to your marriage.
So, while the hubby has a new wedding band and actually wears it now – the meaning is and always will be the same – an expression of our love and unity through the ages.
