I love tungsten but my FH refuses to wear it because he says it can’t be cut of in case of an emergency and will only wear white gold or stainless steel

Today my Fiance and I went ring shopping for the second time and decided on his ring!  It is a newer nontraditional metal, an alloy of Cobalt, and Scott Kay has a line of rings that Fiance and I decided on.  It is supposed to be as durable and scratch resistant as tungsten, titanium, etc.  It is a bit lighter, and Fiance tried on all of the nontraditional metals and decided to go with one of the rings in the sk cobalt collection. 

I must say, it made me happy b/c it was WAY less expensive than white gold, palladium or platinum!  It is about the same price as a tungsten band…Check Cobalt out!

EngagedtoPanda’s husband broke his tungsten ring, shattering it, simply by dropping it on a tile floor. She was so upset! Few people know that tungsten is vulnerable to shattering because the metal just doesn’t have any give whatsoever. That and tungsten’s irremovability in case of emergency (lose a finger for it? I don’t think so!) means we’re sticking with traditioanl metals.

My Fiance is not about looking like everyone else either and he’s leaning toward Titanium with platinum overlays in it. My e-ring is platinum and I will have a platinum wedding band (possible two). So the PT overlays will kind of link our wedding bands.

We went with white and yellow gold for our wedding bands (in both rings) because of the give factor – doesn’t help you much at all. All I’ll say is do take into account your FH’s job – a job that involves using your hands a lot is probably best getting a metal that has a bit of give. Unless your FH is going to wear his wedding band on a chain whilst he works.

My Fiance just picked out his band last night & he went with a comfort fit titanium.  Platinum was too much $$ & he hates yellow/white gold.  Our jeweler came out with the perfect titanium ring & it was so light weight – exactly what he was looking for & cheap too!

I’ve been looking into options and was debating between tungsten carbide and titanium. I knew that tungsten could be shattered (so you don’t have to lose a finger) but didn’t realize it could happen from dropping it on a tile floor. I think I’ve been convinced that titanium may be the way to go.

I’ve got a tungsten man 🙂

We were between titanium and tungsten too, but the jeweler rubbed a titanium ring on the counter and put a huge nick in it.  Tungsten it is!

We went with titanium for both of us.  It looked like it would be the only metal to hold up at both our jobs and was in a price range we could afford.

My man wants stainless steel (snore) and I want him to want Tungsten. He is an electrician and won’t be wearing his ring during the week, he also did not like the idea of not being able to cut the ring off incase of an emergency.

Here is what I found out about emergency removal of Tungsten:
