A set of his or her…

Which is correct “a set of his and hers wedding rings” or “a set of his and her wedding rings”?   I see his and hers used more often, but it sounds a bit odd to say.

Answer: Although both sound awkward, the correct version is “a set of his and her wedding rings.” Today it might seem more sensitive to refer to “a pair of wedding bands.”
