There are men’s wedding rings that will not break when you apply pressure on them, making them more durable for long-lasting daily wear. They include wedding bands made from:
1. Cobalt chrome
Cobalt chrome wedding rings have become a new and popular trend among men because of their durability and exquisite elegance. These rings have a similar appearance to white gold rings or high-quality platinum rings, but available at a fraction of the price. They are hypoallergenic, can withstand wear and tear, and have a similar weight to white gold rings.
Titanium is an excellent metal for making rings. It has an attractive lustrous silver-white hue, lightweight, and hypoallergenic. Titanium rings are also resistant to scratching, rusting, corroding, and bending. They are also affordable and perfect for couples who enjoy original and versatile metal jewelry. Titanium rings are also quite strong and durable than many other metals, making it hard to resize them.
Available as alternative metal jewellery, palladium rings have several benefits over traditional metal jewelry. They are more affordable than platinum rings and possess a bright white, lustrous sheen, similar to platinum’s appearance. These rings are also hypoallergenic and contain one of the hardest metals used in making jewellery.
As a matter of fact, palladium is harder than platinum, meaning it is resistant to scratching, bending, or breaking easily. Its rings are lightweight and easy to maintain. However, palladium metal is less malleable and ductile when compared to platinum, making it hard for jewelers to make it into various shapes and designs. It is also a precious metal, which is quite hard to find.
As one of the rarer metals available in the world, its pieces of jewellery are quite expensive, even in comparison with gold. Platinum rings have a silvery-white hue that accentuates the shine of diamonds and other gemstones. They are also hypoallergenic and extremely durable due to the high tensile strength of platinum. The rings also do not break, bend, scratch, tarnish, or corrode easily.
Silver is the least expensive precious metal available in the world. In its pure form, it is incredibly soft and highly malleable, making it a poor choice or wedding rings. However, sterling silver, which consists of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, is incredibly durable when used in making rings. An additional coat of rhodium plating is added to increase the strength and durability of the ring. The resulting piece of jewelry is radiant, with a beautiful lustrous shine and quite affordable. However, these rings scratch, bend and tarnish over time.
Gold rings offer the most timeless and exquisite look of all the precious metals. They come in several variations and have varying properties. Despite the softness of gold, it is incredibly durable for the average wearer. Most high-quality gold rings range between 18K gold -9K gold to ensure they do not break, bend, or scratch easily. However, gold rings also contain many metal alloys that cause allergic reactions among people with sensitive skin.
