Gold is the most popular precious metal to be used in Men’s Wedding Bands and Men’s Rings. Gold is dense, soft, shiny and the most malleable and ductile pure metal known. Pure gold has a bright yellow color and luster traditionally considered attractive, which it maintains without rusting in air or water. It is a beautiful and valuable metal and very common in all types of Jewelry.
Platinum Wedding Bands are rapidly becoming more popular than the traditional Gold Men’s Wedding Bands for many reasons. Platinum is distinctive, durable, and sophisticated, and a wide range of different wedding ring styles are available for both men and women. It is a beautiful silvery-white metal, when pure, and like gold is malleable and ductile.
Titanium is generally less expensive than gold but it also lasts longer. Titanium jewelry can be worn on a daily basis with little maintenance. When needed, it can be cleaned with a jewelry cloth. Titanium is also extremely durable, through years of wearing, the jewelry remains intact, not malformed and will retain its beautiful color. All the advantages of titanium jewelry have made it an increasingly popular choice for Men’s Wedding Bands.
Tungsten’s hardness, assures long lasting beauty. Permanently Polished Tungsten Wedding Bands take a brilliant high polish and resist scratching longer than any metal ever offered to the public. Roughly ten times harder than 18k gold and four times harder tungsten rings than Titanium.
The highly polished facets retain a permanently luster. Conventional bands look beautiful when they are new because the design details and edges are sharp and polished. Give these same rings 12 months of everyday wear and tear and the entire look and most of the design details will be worn down and dull, even with platinum.
The versatility of Stainless Steel Men’s Wedding Bands is very desirable. Although it is easy to smudge or strain gold or platinum, and for this reason Wedding Bands of these precious metals need to be handled very carefully, the same attention to detail is not a requirement with stainless steel and this makes it appealing to many men.
Regardless, whether you are looking for the tradional elegance of Gold or Platinum, the perpetual brilliance of Tungsten or Titanium or the durability and value of Stainless Steel, there is just the right solution waiting for you and your partner as you begin your life together.
