Platinum works for me. Though it sits at home in the gun safe, I cannot stand to wear jewelry. My wife knows that I am committed to her in my heart and that is good enough for her.

My "theory" was that I would wear a heavy ring. Commitment is a heavy thing, and I want a constant reminder. If some pretty little thing has her hand on my knee and I'm thinking "well... maybe this once" I want a heavy freaking hunk of metal on my hand as a none-too-subtle reminder.

Yea, I agree with the point of a ring is to wear to remind you of your commitment.

I also have a tungsten ring and although cutting it off may be difficult without the right tools; I was told that if they need to get it off to get it cold or freeze it and smack it with a hammer and it will just shatter. Titanium won't do that, have to have something to cut it off.

So if you "freeze" the ring on your finger...and then smash the ring with a sledge hammer...what happens to your finger?

Dunno, but I'm sure they could fix the swelling and any lacerations caused from breaking the ring once they had it off. Could mean the difference between having a scar and losing a finger, I'll take the scar.

+1 for white gold.

Early in our marriage we lived in a condo 9 floors up. It was fall so I was cleaning up the balcony. I remember it was quite cold outside, my fingers were freezing, and I was wiping the top of the a/c unit with my hand. To my horror my ring flew off as I was wiping (a bit oversized I guess, and my fingers shrunk due to the cold), and I made a mad dash to the railing with superhuman speed.

I squinted and saw the ring from 9 floors up hit the ground and rolled towards the empty waterless pool.

I remember avoiding eye contact with my wife as I snuck downstairs to retrieve what was left of the ring...

Luckily the super let me into the pool area and I found the ring in the pool! I nearly twisted my ankle like an idiot jumping in the deep end, but the ring was fine - not a scratch!

True story.

White gold here as well. Almost 9 years and still in one piece.
It does spend most of its time sitting in my truck or at the house since I don't wear it while working and because of that am in the habit of forgetting to put it on other times. But I know I'm married and committed, I don't need to have it on my hand to remind me of that.
