The chain jewelery stores where I am carry a few different metals, since it’s becoming more and more popular for men to opt for something other than Gold. You can always call and ask to see what they carry if it’s a longer drive for you 🙂

I think they’re pretty widely available in most stores now. We’ve been to 2 or 3 smaller jewelry stores (including the one where Fiance bought my ring) and they all carry tungsten, aluminum and titanium rings.

We got our bands from Kay Jewelers, and I’d say they had 10 different types of metal. It started with silver, then to gold, then to the ‘newer’ metals such as tungsten and titanium, etc.

I think most jewelry stores these days stock rings in many different metals, especially men’s rings.

I was looking at tungsten, titanium, and carbonite (??) rings for my Fiance… But they’re SOOO light and SO inexpensive I almost feel bad getting him one for his wedding band! Weird, huh?

@sonj818: I know what you mean! Fiance is an aerospace engineer so he thought it might be cool to get titanium (even though it’s not airplane-grade titanium haha). We found a ring he loves, but it’s only like $300! I suggested some more expensive ones with diamonds or in platinum, but he likes the titanium one. I feel so guilty for getting a $3,000 wedding band!
