Alternative Metal Wedding Bands

Let's face it, most men today could care less what material their wedding band is made of.  If it weren't for their fiances, many men would probably choose not to wear a ring at all.  They probably figure they could use the extra money to buy a bigger better wedding band for the bride, right?  While it's hard to imagine a woman turning down a more expensive band for themselves, the truth is that they will probably pass up this opportunity to see that ring on their husbands' left hands.  So how do you get a wedding band for yourself and still have the budget to buy her the ring of her dreams too?  The answer lies in alternatives metals.

When the price of gold and platinum started it's historic climb in the early 2000's many men just sucked it up and paid more for bands that matched the metals of their fiances engagement ring/wedding band.  However, this quickly became a problem as their ladies were being forced to sacrifice the quality of their own bands in order to afford to get a ring for him as well.  This is when the jewelry industry came out with a solution in the form of inexpensive metals like tungsten, titanium, cobalt, black zirconium, and various ceramic materials.  Sure these materials didn't have the same allure as the traditional gold and platinum, but many of them can imitate their more expensive counterparts for a fraction of the price.  In fact, most of these materials are actually harder and more durable than gold and platinum.  Perfect for the active man who often forgets to take care of his wedding band.
