My Fiance would like to get a hammered wedding band, which I think is a really cool look! He was originally thinking he wanted it to be platinum, but my friend just told me that since platium is a softer metal than white gold, the “hammered” part may get buffed out very quickly and lose the look. Does anyone have any advice or experience in this? What would be best to hold the hammered look, platinum, white gold, or palladium?

My FI’s band is a hammered palladium band. Its pretty sturdy, and light, which he loves. Plus the price was super reasonable!
Just an FYI – if you get a white gold band he may have to have it replated over the years to keep it “white” – and the detail of the hammer marks may not be as obvious over time.

My husband also has a hammered palladium ring. It’s a pretty sturdy metal; he even dropped in the garbage disposal one day, and besides being bent into a more oval shape, there weren’t any nicks or scratches on the ring. 🙂

I have a rose gold hammered band and I like it but because it’s not very wide the hammering is hard to notice.

My fiance’s ring is two tone. I’m pretty sure it’s yellow gold that is getting the hammered finish, but to be honest I haven’t seen the ring in almost 2yrs so… I could be wrong. Best thing to do is to talk to your jewler he or she will know for sure.

we bought my fiance’s hammered band in palladium white gold from a seller on etsy. if it’s anything like my engagement ring, it should hold up pretty nicely. i think all metals are going to have problems. the hammered look just makes it less noticeable.
