so we've decided

that we actually want to get a pair of rings. We went to some jewellers on Wabash today and discovered our sizes (7.5 and 7.75) and looked at a few things. We don't have the time, knowledge, or money to select nice diamonds for a tension setting, but we agree that titanium is the metal of choice because it is both durable and exceptionally light. An inlay is a nice touch; understated without being gaudy. Platinum would be nice, but we don't need it and would rather go out to dinner a few times than spend the extra money on ice.

We've basically decided that an oblique 1–2mm band of white gold in a 6mm ring is ideal. The decision is now largely between a flat and a domed outer surface (note that yellow gold is pictured; we'd go with white). We'll head back to Wabash someday this week to see how the shape difference feels.
