    I wear gold, stainless, or titanium, depending on the watch I'm wearing. Personally I like the titanium, but the Carbon is really cool.

    lockman: makes sense that i like that one then.. the only watch i wear really is a leather one with a black band and face, silver bezel and green accents. i have a bunch of [much more expensive than he aforementioned leather one] watches that i don't wear much, but i prefer the dark ones.

    The carbon/titanium rings are cool, too. I like the Imola.

    You should do a Google commercial, "Advice on Carbon Fiber Wedding Ring" LoL!! Congrats :icon_ banana:

    I like the Carbon Fiber but personally I think it' a bit dark for a wedding ring, but hey it's your ring so ultimately go with what you like and what your fiancee will accept :)

    i think i like the ones that are solid carbon over the ones that are carbon inlays.

    Congratulations! Carbon fiber ring?! I like it. Very unique! I think I'd prefer the carbon/metal, just because its got just a hint of metallic shine, but that's just my opinion, and either way you go, you're my hero if you wear a carbon fiber wedding band! Run-on sentences be damned! Haha!

    Solid carbon - you know it's right. The first one you liked, trust me it's a gut thing.

    to hell with the run-on sentences! ;) thanks for the congrats.. i'm looking forward to getting a ball and cha.. err.. ring.

    did you know that, in spanish, the word for "wife" and "handcuffs" are only different in that the word for "handcuffs" is plural?

    la esposa = wife
    las esposas = handcuffs

    point.

    Found some that are black ceramic. Space shuttle tile ceramic and body armor ceramic, not toilet ceramic... do you guys think solid black is inappropriate for a wedding ring? Should I stick with something like carbon or titanium?

    I don't think there's anything wrong with it personally...Not sure what the general public thinks, but like someone said, it's YOUR wedding and YOUR ring, so get what you want as long as the wife is ok with it!

    Would be interested in seeing a pic of yours.. I found a tiffany one that I like, but it has some branding on it.. Not exactly what I was after.

    I acutally love the collection from Tiffany's that are actually kind of inexpensive. I forget the 'artist' who does them but they are very slick looking.

    EDIT: Ahhh posted too late.

    Congratulations, Sam! My vote is for the carbon inlays, but like the man said, it's your ring and you have to look at it everyday. The blue carbon fiber ones are pretty cool, too!

    Just out of curisosity, what does hers look like? (If it's not top secret that is...)
