Choosing the Right Metal for a Man's Wedding Band

For many years, the choices for a man's wedding band were a plain gold band, a plain gold band, or a plain gold band. As today's men become more fashion conscious, however, many different styles of rings are becoming available for men. In fact, tings can now be engraved with intricate symbols or be laced with jewels. Perhaps the biggest change to men's wedding bands is in the metal used.

Men's Platinum Wedding Rings

Gold ruled the industry for years when it came to men's wedding bands, with a small handful of rings being silver. The first contender for overthrowing gold from its throne, however, was platinum. Platinum offered the shine of silver with a higher durability. Now, as the taste for both metals grows, many men are choosing a two tone ring made from gold and platinum. This style of ring looks good in any setting. But, there are many other metals vying for your attention.

Stainless Steel Rings
For a man who wants a stylish ring on a limited budget, stainless steel has made a come back to the jewelry counter. It is lightweight, durable, and has a brilliant shine. Because of the low cost of stainless steel, you can get a larger ring for a comparable price. It is also the perfect band for a mechanic, carpenter, or anyone who might damage a softer metal ring.

Tungsten and Titanium Men's Wedding Bands

Tungsten
Similar to stainless steel in durability is tungsten. Tungsten is a popular metal amongst those with skin allergies. Tungsten is unalloyed, which means it is unlikely to react to skin. It also means that tungsten rings are hard to scratch, have a natural shine, and will never tarnish. It is the perfect low maintenance ring.

Titanium
The current hot metal for men's wedding bands is titanium. As durable as steel, titanium provides a different look than other metals. Hammered titanium becomes smoky in color with a mellow shine. It is considered by many to be a very masculine look. Black titanium is also very popular. Black titanium rings often contain a jewel or another strip of metal like gold as a contrast. A titanium ring is perfect for a man who feels wearing jewelry is feminine.

One additional advantage to all of the different rings available for men now is the return of the bridal set. Since rings are cheaper to buy in a set, and men's rings are no longer limited in style or color, many couples are buying sets again. Whether you purchase your rings separately or as a set, there are many different choices available for the groom.
