Titanium rings are actually way more durable than gold or platinum.  In fact, they often can’t be cut off (in case they get stuck on his finger). 

They are less expensive because titanium is not a precious metal.

But I agree there are some great titanium and tungsten rings out there.  And they are affordable.

My Fiance was considering a titanium ring because he works with his hands and then he wouldn’t have to worry about scratching it or bending it.

My Fiance wants a precious metal ring, but we’re thinking about getting a titanium ring because he works outside all day everyday (he’s in environmental clean-up) and I’m worried about spending a ton of money on a ring.

He told me that he’d have to get remeasured for a ring before buying something online because you can’t resize a titanium ring. They are tough!

@Lily of theValley: They can actually be cut off just as easily as any other metal. That is actually one of the myths about titanium.

@.twist.:ahh good to know.  That was one of the reasons Fiance was skeptical about getting one.

Yeah now that I think about it, it doesn’t make sense that it couldn’t be cut.  But I do know that it’s still and incredibly durable metal.

@Lily of theValley: Yep, we were looking at them too, and I was a little freaked out by that. After doing a little research and finding out that my Future Father-In-Law actually had to have one cut off, I’m much more comfortable with them.

Although, my Fiance works outside, and I would still be hesitant to let him wear ANY ring with such a laborous job. So, we’re just getting him one for special ocassions and non-work time.

Titanium is supposed to be MORE durable.  My husband has a titanium ring.  He didn’t want to worry about getting scratches on a gold band.  Titanium fit the bill.  He’s very happy with it.  I was very happy with the price!

@.twist.: Really? My Darling Husband is an industrial fire fighter and they have told him that he is not allowed to wear his titanium ring when going out on a call. We’ve been told that tungsten absolutely cannot be cut off and titanium can only be shattered so the way they would remove it would be to hit it with a hammer. We thought it was a myth at first until the fire department told us all of this.

At any rate my man wears his ring pretty much every day and it’s really durable. It does have a few stratches on it and we were only just married in April. He works with his hands a lot though, so I think it will hold up pretty well. His ring has 5 diamonds set in the top and it only cost us about $270. It looks great and the color is nice. We’re planning on buying a nicer one later down the road for him to wear on special occasions 🙂

My man got this ring below. It looks a little feminine in this photo, but on him it’s really nice. He needed a wider band because he has bigger hands. The sections on either side of the diamonds look a bit darker because the metal has a brushed look there.

He also looked at these ones:

We bought from this etsy shop. I love his ring! They have some lovely styles and they are light, inexpensive, and durable. No down side as far as I can tell.

He just wanted a simple, plain band, but I love some of the fancier ones.

Yes very durable but the color will be greyish, not white as white gold or platinum.
