skier11:  I think palladium is hypoallergenic. I believe it’s very similar to platinum (perhaps even in the same metal “family”?). I’m not sure how the prices compare between palladium and platinum, but I’ve read online that it is generally cheaper.

Maybe titanium or cobalt free tungsten?  DH has tungsten and loves it.  His is brushed but they come in tons of styles, including shiny ones.  We got his on Amazon.  His original was only $18.99 but the beveled edges bothered him so I got him a smooth one for $9.99 😊.  I don’t have a pic of the new one, but it’s just like the original except for the edges are domed instead of the bevel.  He also loves it because he can open beer bottles with it 😉.  You could always get one of the cheaper ones and have him try it out; a lot of them are Prime eligible so free shipping & free returns!

I couldn’t edit my post on my iPhone, but if you do try tungsten it has to be cobalt free to be hypoallergenic.  Good Luck!

I’ve seen wood rings becoming more and more popular, and some of them look really nice!

In precious metals, it is likely that platinum would do the trick. Additionally, many people are allergic to the alloys in 14K gold but are okay with 18K or 22K, but a person can’t really test-drive different karats of gold to be sure. 

I also agree that palladium would probably work, as well as surgical stainless steel.

Surgical stainless steel should work well.

skier11:  palladium or titanium will be hypoallergenic.  Palladium is in the platinum family but not nearly as expensive.  Titanium cannot be resized, but is lightweight and cheap to buy.  Try etsy for titanium, not jewelry stores.

Look into palladium as others have mentioned.  It’s in the platinum family and tends be the same price as or cheaper than the price of gold.

Surgical stainless steel is a decent option. My husband has a stainless steel wedding band (he’s a chef and so wanted something sturdy). It’s held up okay despite constant abuse in the kitchen. He will probably need to buy another one in a year or two, though.

Other than that, titanium and tungsten carbide are also good bets. You can find some beautiful options for very cheap on Amazon or ebay.

Palladium, surgical stainless steel, or titanium.
