    Sorry if this should be in an other section didnt know where else to post..

    I'm Looking for a nice ring under 50$ (idealy) that would go well with my Silver Sports & Milanese loop. I was thinking a brushed/polished metal combo to recall the watch and the band as much as possible. The material is not a problem if within the budget.. It has to be available in size 14 and shipping available to Canada.

    Am asking for help because I have the watch but my milanese loop isnt going to arrive until june so I was thinking someone who already owns it could probably make a better recommendation. But feel free to suggest even if you don't own one.

    Thanks for your replies

    Check. So you have a Sport watch (aluminum) and you're buying a Milanese loop to go with it???

    ----------

    It's a wedding band. Are you married? What hand will you wear it on?

    Well, if you wear it on your left ring finger, people will think you're married. Might be a good or bad thing.

    Sorry, I meant left. It's true that it might be the other hand depending on culture/country though.

    If it's on your right hand, it's fine. The left is where you'll find wedding bands unless I'm unfamiliar with Canadian wedding band placement.

    In the U.S., they're worn on the left hand ring finger.

    If this is also true in Canada, you should be fine.

    Wait a year and Apple will release a ring to pair with the watch. It will house the camera :)

    There are tons of mesh steel rings out there. No idea if this is the cheapest, nicest, etc.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mesh-Band-Ring-Stainless-Steel-Flexible-Wire-Woven-/380343565185

    If it's cheap and/or returnable, give it a shot, but I can tell you from experience, it's a fine line between "complementing" something with an accessory, and matching it exactly, and bordering on weird or geeky.

    I thought of that one earlier. My mesh ring is a Tiffany. It's above the price you wanted. You can find cheaper ones, though.

    I do not own the ring. I have seen them around, and they are generally flexible. No idea if it matches exactly. An exact match is probably not a good thing anyway in my book.

    Something like this would actually be more visually complementary, if you're determined to accessorize your watch, which I don't necessarily endorse.

    I like it so much that I have owned one just like it for a year already. :eek:

    I'm concerned this might be too matchy matchy.

    Just a side note- I wear a sterling silver plain men's ring on my left (watch) hand. I completely avoided getting a SS watch due to it clashing with the ring- maybe clashing is not the right term, but I don't want too much shiny metal on my hands/wrist....hence my reason for buying the SG Sport. So many factors to take into consideration. If I had purchased the SS, I think I would have stopped wearing my ring- and since it is 20 years old, and has some sentimental value, I didn't want to.

    Yeah maybe you guys are right and I shouldn't go with a "perfect match" and should go with simething a little different... Any other models?

    My wedding ring is platinum and I think it goes better with the brushed aluminum than it would go with stainless steel but a platinum ring under $50 won't happen.

    I would do a search on amazon for 'matte ring' and you'll find a bunch, mostly wedding rings.
