The Wedding Band Guide

With so many different metals to choose from, how do you find a wedding band as strong as the love for your fiancé?(: We're constantly using our hands, so durable rings that won't easily be damaged are ideal. We've compiled a guide of the most popular metals used for wedding bands, each listed with it's pros and cons. While you and your fiancé shop for the perfect rings, try and keep these factors in mind when narrowing down choices and making your final decision together. wedding-bands-small PLATINUM Platinum is a rare metal that is silvery and almost white in color. Its heavier and pricier than most metals, but more resistant to scratches. Platinum also and won't fade or tarnish as easily. Its durability makes it the perfect metal to have a secure setting for diamonds or gem stones. GOLD Gold wedding bands are distinct and great for those couples looking for a more vintage look. Gold is popular for its rarity and luster. A larger karat means there's a higher percentage of pure gold. The hardness and durability of gold depends on the karat, so remember that a higher karat will be a lot softer. TITANIUM Titanium is more resistant to tarnishing, and its durability makes it more impervious to scratches. It's also lightweight and another less expensive hypoallergenic alternative to platinum. Titanium is difficult to re-size, but still possible if needed. TUNGSTEN Tungsten is the best choice when wanting a ring that's most resistant to abrasion. Although more pricey, it's well worth the investment as tungsten is almost impossible to scratch and retains its shine. An important thing to note when buying a tungsten band is that you can't re-size the metal. STERLING SILVER Sterling silver is perfect suited for those wanting a more simple style. Although more susceptible to tarnish and collecting scratches, it's the most affordable of the metals.
