    It’s just another metal option, but it’s extremely lightweight. It’s actually pretty durable, but not as much as Tungsten bands (which are virtually indestructable). Titanium is also corrosion-resistent (like with sea-water and chlorine). It does scratch, but not as easily as gold rings, and it takes quite a bit of force. I personally really like titanium because of how durable but lightweight it is. Some say that it lacks the luster that gold has, but it is quite shiny if you get it finished the right way.

    I purchased a custom titanium band for someone from http://www.boonerings.com a few years back, and it was great. It’s harder to find women’s titanium rings though, I’m not sure if you’re looking for your Fiance or yourself. Check them out, even if you’re not looking to buy just yet. P.S. – if you are looking, this vendor is amazing to work with.

    When I was thinking of what to get my Fiance, I knew I was getting him titanium. It is so lightweight and for someone that does not wear jewerly and works with his hands alot, I knew this be perfect. I also love the design of the rings. He came to me and asked what I was going to get him bc he wanted a titanium ring too! It is also very cost effective..:) He told me he saw a black one when he was getting my ring that he really liked and at first I was like, black really? But it has 2 bands of silver in it and I absolutely love it and it looks darn good on him and suits his personality. We looked online and I honestly got mine off a seller site on Ebay and its the same exact ring at Jareds. The difference?….Jareds=$300, Mine=$75. We were both pleased!

    Fiance is getting a titanium and wood ring.  I love the symbolism of titanium which is one of the hardest metals, and wood which is so soft and flexible.  I thought it made a nice analogy for relationships!

    Some people will tell you that you shouldn’t get titanium because you can’t cut it off, but I can tell you from working in the ER that our ring cutter can get them off without a problem… so you shouldn’t let that disuade you.

    My husband has a titanium ring and it is great.  As has been stated, it is sooo light weight.  It holds up great and it is a fantastic ring.  We got it a Jarod’s Galleria of Jewelry and it was a wonderful experience!

    I didn’t get a titanium band, but my Fiance did! And he LOVES it (read:wears it around the house whenever he gets the chance)! Its super durable and scratch proof, and easy on the bank account. A jeweler friend told me that you should never pay more (or even near) than $100 for titanium. The only hang up with this metal is that it can never be cut. Meaning, no resizing or worse…no cutting off when in an accident. But we figured that Fiance doesn’t do that much manual labor (ie firefighting, working on cars) and if we need to get it resized…we can totally afford a new one. We got his right out of the case for 50% off, so $30. totally worth it. It was originally shiny, but he got it brushed so its more his style. I would really recommend it!
