    Please check out our latest article regarding how a wedding ring should fit on men.

    https://askandyaboutclothes.com/lifestyle/mans-wedding-ring-fit/

    Personally speaking, my wedding ring is a blend of tungsten & platinum.

    On the inside of the band there is a hard to see engraving, with one part showing "TrewTungsten".

    Over the last 15+ years of being married I've been up and down the weight scale (20lbs +/-). Thankfully, my ring has generally fit me well, though sometimes a tad loose, and other times a tad tight.

    Since the ring cannot be resized, the jeweler provided a pretty generous policy of being willing to offer one free size replacement if I ever needed.

    Not sure if that is common or not, but I thought it was a more than fair policy, and to be honest, unexpected.

    Lastly, considering I rarely have the ring cleaned, it stays looking pretty good IMO.

    If married, what kind of wedding ring do you have, and how does it fit?

    Photos please :)

    Good article! My fiancee taught me a lot about rings since she is very passionate about jewellery. Like most men, I am not very knowledgeable when it comes to jewellery. We picked out a platinum band for me a few months ago and it fit comfortably snug, just as it is meant to fit.

    I just tried it on again a few days ago and it was slightly loose, probably because my fingers were more swollen when I got the ring. Since my wedding will be in the summer, I don't want to resize the ring in case my fingers swell. My fingers tend to swell a large amount at any time of the year, but particularly in summer. Any any moment my bony fingers can turn into sausages. I'm a bit nervous about wearing a ring because of that, but running them under cold water calms them down.

    When I lost 55 pds, I had to have my simple gold band with 2 lines engraved on it, resized. the machine compressed it and no problems with the engraved lines. the fit now, I guess I lost a bit more, a touch lose. life.

    Are you sure it doesn't go through his nose?

    The good news about looser fitting wedding rings, or any other ring, is that you can add a spacer (ring size adjuster) to tighten the fit some.

    I don’t really wear one. For years they weren’t allowed in industrial sites—and for good reason.
    I have an EXTREME aversion to having my blood pressure taken, due to the feeling of my pulse in my underarm. The silicone band I purchased has this same effect on my finger when swollen, and since they’re not manufactured in half sizes, I can’t wear one a size larger. It’d be too loose.

    Now, if only someone would write an article about which shoe to wear on which foot, we’d all be up to speed.

    image.jpg Not a great picture, but you get the concept. Plain gold band. I put it on at 10:40 or so in the morning on July 12, 1975, and have never taken it off. So if it fits or not is outside of my control.
