    We went with Titanium. I think it’s beautiful. He hasn’t worn it yet, but I’ve heard they hold up really well. Not as likely to scratch or bend as gold or silver but less heavy and expensive than pretty much everything else. My dad has a tungsten ring and loves it. I’ve heard they can shatter but I don’t think it’s a very common thing.

    We went with tungsten carbide. Fiance has a motorcycle, corvette and lots of other things he works on and is active so he wanted something durable, scratch resistent, easy to clean and this works out well. He has been wearing it for 6 months and gets oil/grease on it and bangs it around working on engines and he hasn’t had any problems. It always comes clean and looks brand new. We got him this one, the website is great too btw. http://www.titaniumkay.com/VELLI-Tungsten-Carbide-Concave-Wedding-Band-Ring-P103795.html

    We went with tungsten for a few reasons, but it mostly came down to cost and style. If cost was no object we probably would’ve done a platinum band with diamonds because my Darling Husband doesn’t like the super plain bands that look like every other ring. But– diamonds and platinum were not in the budget. We looked at gold rings but there are really not very many styles available that he liked. Then we looked into tungsten because he liked how it stays super shiny always, and they also had more designs. I love the one he picked, its classic while still being just a little bit different:

    We went with platinum. We wanted ours to be the same metal, even if different in design. He also liked that it was reminiscent of his dad’s in that way.

    My husband wears a palladium ring. He liked the weight of it compared to platinum and even white gold. It’s also brushed. Some of the brushing has worn away from a year and a half. So eventually, we’ll have it rebrushed. He’s a computer web developer. Having a light ring helps with him being at the computer all day.

    We went for brushed palladium because platinum would have cost a fortune for his ring size.

    He wants a Titanium band with a yellow gold inlay. If it gets too scratched up you could always replace it since they’re so inexpensive, if you’re comfortable with that. 🙂

    Well the first ring we bought was titanium, but it was ordered in the wrong size and Jay jewelry would not refund us, soooo I said eff them and eff titanium. Finger sizes can change all the time, so we decided to go with white gold, so that we can get it resized if we need too.

    White Tungsten

    He really wanted something that wouldn’t scratch and he liked the classic look.

    We went with Cobalt.  FI’s not sure if he’ll wear his ring on a daily basis, but if he does he needs something that he can cut off on his own.  Cobalt and White Gold fit that bill.  Downside is that Cobalt couldn’t be put back together like white gold.  In the unlikely event he has to cut it off, I think we’ll just be glad he still has a finger to put a new ring on.  The white gold was three times the price of the Cobalt and we just couldn’t justify spending that much more on something he might wear once or twice a week.
