To answer your main question, I do not think Titanium is cheesy.

What are the chances of your husband getting his finger, below the titanium ring, seriously caught somewhere?

My Dh has a platinum ring that we used at the wedding, and he just ordered a $30 titanium ring off amazon for everyday wear.

He works with computers and computer parts a lot so his platinum band is already scratched up.

He’ll wear titanium for daily wear and the platinum one for “fancy” occasions.

ERs are equipped to cut off gold, silver, and platinum (well, a well-equipped ER can handle all three). Removal of titanium, tungsten, etc can be done but it’s unsafe – the metal can shatter for example.

Platinum might be a much better choice if he’s simply worried about the damage. It is much more expensive, however.

He could also look for a design or finish that will hide the wear. Or, if he gets white gold, there is the option to periodically buff the scratches and re-dip. Or he could simply not wear the ring at work.

I don’t think that titanium is cheesy, but there are difficulties with it. It’s impossible to size it and when it’s scratched, it’s scratched.

It is cheap enough to replace easily if he needs a different size, though.

I don’t think it’s cheesy or cheap at all.

And I think the fact that it can’t be cut is a rumour…I just read that on another board somewhere yesterday.

@MademoiselleL: We asked a friend of mine who’s a shock trauma person. She didn’t say it couldn’t be removed, but she did say it couldn’t be cut off neatly like the others – hence the risk of shards going into fingers, etc. Of course, different ERs might be equipped differently.

@atalante:  True, I think I’ve seen pics of it shattering as well.  So you can get it off, just not as neatly.

My FI got titanium because of how physical his job is. For him, a platinum ring would get ruined easily. He’s thinking about getting a platinum ring later on (anniversary ring) for outside of work, but he’s still debating about that.

I say go for titanium! It’ll last a lifetime.

Old titanium used to shatter–they’ve been making titanium that is less prone shatter and so is safer to cut off.  Frankly, I don’t see a physician getting into too many situations where a ring would need to be cut off so it’s not an issue.

For the OP–let him get what he wants! My dude also wants a titanium ring–he has one for his e-ring and loves it.  It’s lightweight and comfortable and he loves how it looks.  My BFF had the same quandry as you–her husband had a custom platinum set made for her and she was all ready to get him a platinum band–but he really wanted titanium.  She resisted until she realized that this is *his* ring and he can pick whatever he wanted.  They had a ring warming ceremony and his titanium ring looked just as nice as her platinum band.

The moral of the story:  lots of men have titanium bands–it won’t look cheesy or cheap if you get a nice one.  It’s his ring and he should be able to have what he likes, just as you were able to have what you like.

My FI is planning on ordering a Titanium ring…  We looked at rings when we were getting my ring re-sized and they actually look very nice.  He works with machinery and is worried about it falling off or the ring getting messed up while working.  I think most guys don’t care too much about rings… It is more of a girl thing, so I am going to support the titanium ring.

I don’t believe it is cheesy.I brought my FI a tungsten carbide ring from zales as a wedding band. I got it in a white finish so it looks like white gold. he doesn’t care for jewerly and for his job he has to have a plain band because we works with food.
