My dad has a titanium band that he loves. He says it’s really light and comfortable.

Amazon, or even claire’s, probably has something.

Titanium scares me for one reason:  It can never be cut.  If you lose or gain weight, you have to buy a whole new ring, and god forbid something happens to your hand and it swells it can’t be cut off of your finger…ever.  I’d rather use a sterling silver band for a stunt double, it might end up being cheaper and in the rare event that you break your hand you won’t lose a finger!

I have an awesome stainless steel ring from Amazon.  $5 plus $5 for shipping.  It looks like platinum, is not thin or cheap looking.  They have all sizes and widths, I believe the retailer is Sabrina Silver.

I have a $10 silver ring that I wear when I am doing certain rough jobs. I thought I wouldnt want a stunt double ring but in the end I’m way too protective of my real ring

yes, like @morganjenkstamwood: suggested. go to amazon.com and search the “jewelry”section for “steel band 3mm

you will get lots of hits, for example this one is $5: http://www.amazon.com/Stainless-Polish-Comfort-Wedding-Available/dp/B001D479EC/ref=sr_1_6?s=jewelry&ie=UTF8&qid=1312225163&sr=1-6

I have a 3mm stainless band very similar to this and I have to say I love it! it’s very comfortable, and solid enough that it feels like high quality even though it was so cheap!

@KateRBels: That’s exactly why SO is hesitant to get one. And he hates the look of white/yellow gold on him. UGH.. so difficult.

 

Good luck, OP! There’s a ton on Amazon 🙂

To dispel rumors, yes titanium can be cut off in the event of an emergency!  It’s more brittle than other metals, so it needs to be cut on either side to be removed, as it can’t be bent.  Jewelers would be asking for lawsuits if they made rings out of an unsafe material.

if you think you cold have an emergency bad enough that the ring must be cut off, then is it safe to wear a ring at all? some jobs (like working with tools), it is recommended to not wear one for your safety.
