With the popularity of alternative metal jewelry on the rise, many people have been asking the question “What type of wedding ring should I choose, Tungsten or Titanium?”. We intend to help you answer that question by presenting some facts about each type of ring, so that you can make an informed decision, and hopefully choose the wedding ring that is right for you.
The case for Tungsten Wedding Bands:
Tungsten Wedding Bands are a very intriguing choice. Over the last ten years or so they have really become the alternative metal wedding band of choice. Cheap Wedding Rings should be made of a material called Tungsten Carbide – beware of sellers that sell just plain Tungsten rings, as this is not the same thing.
Tungsten Rings are heavy in terms of jewelry. They are roughly the same weight as gold, which many people prefer. This gives them a nice quality feel. It also makes them ideal for plating (even though this does take away a bit from its scratch resistance) you can get a ring that looks identical to yellow gold, and weights about the same, for as little as $60 depending on where you shop. Tungsten Carbide is a scratch resistant material. They are the hardest material currently used in jewelry production, and getting a plain (by plain we mean non-plated)
Tungsten Ring you can certainly expect your ring to last a lifetime.
One drawback to Cheap Cheap Tungsten Bands is that they are not sizable. Be sure to look for a retailer that offers a lifetime warranty or a sizing program (usually there’s a small deductible involved in this type of program, but it’s usually much cheaper than having a traditional metal wedding band resized) so that if you gain or lose weight you can get your ring resized.
The case for Titanium Wedding Bands:
Titanium Rings have been around for awhile now, and they quality and price can vary widely. This type of wedding ring is a GREAT choice if you are on a budget. You can pick up a high quality, Cheap Titanium Ring as low as $35 depending on the retailer. Titanium Rings are not as scratch resistant as Tungsten Rings, however they are still a great choice.
One great advantage of Titanium Rings is that they are light weight. If you are looking for something that feels almost weightless on your hand – this is a great choice. In addition to this, Titanium Rings are completely hypo allergenic. While Tungsten Rings are considered hypo allergenic, in a very small percentage of people (about 1 in 1 million) it is possible to have a reaction to the otherwise amazing jewelry material because a quality Tungsten Ring will have a nickel binder. The percentage of Nickel is very minute as a binder, but if you have a severe reaction to nickel, this can occur.
Titanium Bands also cannot be resized with traditional methods, so again we recommend looking for a retailer that has a lifetime warranty or sizing program that you can take advantage of.
In conclusion we’d recommend just following your personal needs. Both rings make amazing wedding bands, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg – especially if you show at an online retailer such as Ring Ninja. In addition to selling high quality,Cheap Wedding Ring Sets, they also offer a lifetime warranty on all of their Tungsten, Titanium, and Cobalt wedding bands!
