    Sounds like you want palladium, a white metal that is cheaper than gold but doesn’t tarnish like silver. Similar to platinum but lighter, plus durable and hypoallergenic!

    Wow prices for palladium have really shot up since I last checked! xP Yikes!!! Maybe you can get one in your price-range second hand, if you’re not adverse to that sort of thing?

    msbtobe :  I have a plain titanium band which I got because my rose gold wedding ring was irritating my finger. I have to say I love it. It’s lightweight, shiny and sort of feels “soft” on my finger if that doesn’t sound too nuts?! I got it from Etsy and it was around £10 with postage. I love it as much as my gold one. If you’re not hung up on having a “precious “ metal ring I would highly recommend it. The only downside is that titanium is hard to resize so it’s not a great choice if that might be a problem in future. Here’s a pic….

    I should add that it’s a comfort fit and 2mm!

    Tungsten carbide or titanium are good. I bought a few $10 to $14 rings off of Amazon that I wore while my e-ring/wedding ring was being soldered. They look very nice and are comfortable. I had no issues with either but I doubt I tried swimming with them. I think the only time I’ve worn rings swimming I wore the silicon.

    I would spend extra on the initial cost rather than risk having to replace a cheaper metal multiple times!
