Just when you think you know a lot about specific subject such as mens titanium wedding bands someone comes around and tells you a something you never thought of before. Thats the beauty of the Internet. Post a blog about a topic and, sure enough, you will attract the attention of industry experts with an impressive amount of knowledge. Thats what happened to me last month after I posted the article “Are Buyers of Mens Titanium Wedding Bands Smarter, or Are They Just More Tech-Savvy?”
According to a representative from the Edward Mirell Company, a designer jewelry brand that makes cutting edge mens rings from contemporary metals, mens titanium wedding bands are even stronger than I thought. For example, legitimate titanium is impossible to resize because the metal is just too strong. Fortunately, if the ring becomes too small it is not nearly as expensive to replace as gold or platinum. Some retailers allow mens titanium wedding bands to be exchanged for a larger size if it ever needs resizing.
Another interesting fact about mens titanium wedding bands is how easy they are to maintain. Other metals may need to be buffed up professionally by a jeweler to have scratches removed, but Edward Mirell suggests using a Scotch-Brite pad. No, that was not a typo It actually works! Just rub the pad gently in the same direction and any scratches will come right out. Then if you want to polish it a little more, just use some hand sanitizer on a cotton ball and it will be back to its natural brilliance.
There is no doubt that mens titanium wedding bands are strong and easy to maintain, but men also choose a wedding ring for its good looks. Titanium has a grayer appearance than platinum, but it is still a very bright and dazzling jewelry metal. For a contemporary look, many men are choosing black titanium with a polished gray titanium overlay, or an all-black titanium ring for a striking silhouette. Whats nice about colored titanium is that its not covered in a coating that will wear off. The anodizing process can actually change the color of the metal into any tint, including brilliant greens and blues, but for mens titanium wedding bands, black is the most common shade.
Titanium is scratch-resistant, easy to care for, extremely hard, and yet surprisingly lightweight. It is also hypoallergenic and relatively inexpensive. When customers learn about all the benefits of wearing mens titanium wedding bands, they are usually surprised that anyone still buys other metals. Choose a titanium band for your wedding, and it can be your “ring for life.”

Jewelry isn’t for every man, but a lot more men are buying it than ever before. Let’s face it; most guys don’t remember their dad dropping hints about that new diamond watch he wanted for Christmas, and men don’t generally covet another man’s wedding band. But times change and fashions change. Men aren’t afraid to show their -fashionable side- anymore. If they want a contemporary piece of jewelry, they buy it; and they rarely worry whether it will impact their masculinity. Perhaps these are the reasons why sales of men’s titanium wedding rings continue to rise. But as you will see in this article, style isn’t the only reason men love titanium. These popular men’s rings also have substance.
We have all heard that -faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen,- and it’s the faith we have in one another that strengthens a marriage. Similarly, titanium is a metal that is so lightweight and comfortable that it’s hard for men to believe that it could really be one of the strongest metals known to man. Just because you cannot see or feel its strength right away doesn’t mean titanium isn’t harder and stronger than most other jewelry metals.
Men’s titanium wedding rings are also hypoallergenic and low-maintenance, which makes them popular with men who cannot wear white gold. Buyers are often surprised when they learn that titanium bands never require re-plating and can be polished easily with some hand sanitizer and a Scotch-Brite pad. This is a whole lot easier than taking the ring to a jeweler for a professional polishing, and men’s titanium wedding rings naturally resist scratching.
Some of the most avant-garde jewelry designers in the world have embraced titanium for making rings because it’s so easy to work with. It can even be colored in a way that will never wear off over time. While most men aren’t looking for brightly colored wedding bands, stylish black titanium is increasingly popular in men’s wedding rings.
When men start shopping for wedding bands, most expect to buy something more traditional, but some recent developments have gotten in the way of that. The first one is cost. Gold prices have increased by 22 percent in just the past twelve months, and they are on pace to continue climbing in 2012. This may be great for investors, but it’s not ideal when you’re shopping for wedding bands. Industrial metals like titanium have come onto the scene just at the appropriate time, when men were looking for an alternative to pricey precious metals.
Style is another reason to choose titanium. Men want something different than their father’s wedding ring and men’s ring designers are flexing their muscles with men’s titanium wedding rings. Many are two tone rings with black and silver-toned titanium. Others have black cable or carbon fiber insets. But one thing they all have in common is practicality. Men who want to get more style and substance for their money are choosing men’s titanium wedding rings.
