Thanks to some great folks here, I’ve received many glowing recommendations of tungsten carbide rings. But I’m curious. . .what about titanium? Does it have any benefits over TC, or. . .? The only info I’ve been able to get so far is from stores selling such rings. . .and they play up both kinds to the max, of course. 🙂
I have heard that titanium is lighter than tungsten carbide. I’m not sure if they are both about the same as far as hard to remove in an emergency??
My fiance’ is interested in having a band that is inexpensive, durable, and simple. Right now he’s not doing much farm work/rough stuff but that could be in our future, so durable is important. 🙂
Any experiences/opinions welcomed!

Titanium is super light and will not shatter as easily as tungsten. The downside is that titanium can be scratched, although it’s just as easy to buff out as other jewelry. Tungsten is about the same weight as gold.
My fiance has a 3mm titanium band as an e ring and he loves it. It’s comfort fit, super light and is very durable. His watch is titanium with gold detail and his band will be titanium with a yellow gold inlay to coordinate with my set. They hold up to anything, have been dropped and been glued to various surfaces and who knows what else.

Depending on your budget I would recomend a ceramic band. Its light weight, more durable , and easy to remove in an emergency. Ours are costing 175$ CDN each and are really really nice.

Asked hubby he says dont do tungsten. Fiance was in the metal industry and now is in the adventure sports and medical rescue. Tungsten is too heavy and too risky in the case of an emergency.
