What Metal Is Best for Your Husband's Wedding Band?

March 20th, 2016


A yellow gold band is traditional and timeless. If standard gold doesn't appeal to him, there is always white gold. White gold is an alloy of gold and white metals such as silver and palladium. Both are durable and highly scratch-resistant. Gold rings can be sized and engraved. White gold’s affordability also makes it a popular choice. Shop Now


Platinum is more rare than gold and has a shiny white hue. It is actually the most rare and valuable of the precious metals. A platinum ring will be more expensive; however, its heaviness, density and strength make it an ideal choice for a wedding band. Platinum bands can be sized.


Titanium is a lightweight yet highly durable metal. For men not used to wearing jewelry, this lightweight band may feel more comfortable than gold or platinum. It is a medium gray color. Titanium was known for years for its use in the aeronautics field and has only recently been used in rings. You want to be sure to get the correct size band, as titanium cannot be re-sized.

Tungsten is an extremely hard and durable metal. It resists scratches and will not bend like precious metals. It is usually grayish-black in color. Tungsten wedding rings are actually made of equal parts tungsten and carbon, a material known as tungsten carbide. Unlike titanium, these bands will be quite heavy in weight. This ring is a favorite for mechanics and carpenters as well as others who work with their hands. Tungsten carbide bands cannot be re-sized. Shop Now


Palladium is a white radiant metal. It is a member of the platinum family. Unlike white gold, which will show a tint of yellow over time, palladium is naturally white like platinum and will not fade. A palladium band is a more affordable alternative to platinum.


Stainless steel has become popular because of its strength, durability, and affordability. This lightweight band has a stylish, modern look. Stainless steel is naturally white in color but can be polished to take on different looks. Shop Now


Sterling silver is actually pure silver mixed with copper or other metal to make it more durable. It is one of the softer metals and will get scratched and marked easily. Sterling silver may not be a good choice for someone who does a lot of manual labor. However, it is quite affordable. Sterling silver can range from bright white to grayish white, and can have a matte or shiny finish. Shop Now
