There are so many different types of wedding bands out there. I have been looking at them lately and have narrowed down a couple types I think are pretty cool. A lot of people are turning to tungsten rings for their wedding bands. They look great and are virtually scratch resistant. That makes them really popular. Plus the price is great. They have kind of replaced titanium rings as the go to ring. Titanium are much more light weight than tungsten but they scratch kind of easily. You do have to make sure you get a tungsten ring that does not contain cobalt in them. Cobalt will oxidize to your hand and make the ring very unattractive.
Another fairly new type of rings are palladium rings. Palladium is a metal from the same category as platinum. They are very similar. In fact palladium is more rare than platinum or there is less of it out there because it hasn’t been as valued as platinum in the past. A lot of times the value of a metal is what drives the market. So if it is seemingly valuable than a lot of people will want it and drive the demand up.
