The Day My Hubby Replaced His Wedding Band

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!

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.

  4. Love this post Carolann. It is so nice that they sent you this ring and your husband can wear it now. It is very beautiful. The ring is an excellent alternative to gold and silver too. I have a few marriage ring stories too. One is that he lost his original ring somehow, we got a replacment, and then years later we found the original while tilling the soil to plant some roses.

  5. Thanks so much Sue that means a lot to me! Yes, he wears it daily now and says it’s so comfortable. Wow, I can’t believe you found it! That’s amazing. I’d love to hear your stories someday please!

  6. Great idea! How is the brittle nature of the metal handled? Does the nickel take care of it?(Light bulb filaments are made out of it.) – Good that they offer replacement as you cannot resize pieces made from it.

  7. Hi Nancy, I’m so glad to see him wearing this he even sleeps with it on! This ring is so durable and the style is perfect. Thanks much for stopping by and have a great week!

  8. What a lovely article, me and my partner have had to replace our wedding rings on a few occasions, but we have kept our old rings in a case for sentimental reasons. Rings have so much sentimental value to them. I love the man’s ring on the website. Thanks for a great read. Julie

  9. Hi Julie, see that’s nice…keeping the old rings too. I agree, they have so much sentimental value to them. I plan on giving them to the kids for sure. thanks much for stopping by and commenting. I hope to see you again soon!

  10. I wondered how this metal would hold up to everyday wear and tear, and would it be as good as advertised.

    Nice detailed review, and I’m glad to hear that your husband is enjoying the new ring :)

  11. Wow, nice ring. Beyond the fact that this ring glitters and offers comfort, I love the fact that they do offer replacements in case of anything. It’s a good thing that you guys also believe that it’s not the right that matters but what it symbolizes, so you can change it whenever you feel like.


  12. Hi Fiona, thanks much! Yes, I agree with you totally. He loves his new ring and now can wear it all the time without it bothering him. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you again soon. Wishing you and your family the most wonderful holiday season! Carolann xo
