I love gold because it looks rich. Never been a fan of silver, especially when it tarnishes. I know you probably want to surprise your hubbie, but I would ask him what he prefers then go from there. We got beautiful wedding rings 9 years ago and never wear them. It's not cause I don't want to; it's just hard working with them on. But I'm glad we have them cause they're like a keepsake that represent a special time in our lives.
