Mens Wedding Bands: the Titanium Age

By: Scott Jarvis

It is fairly common for men to play a secondary role when planning for their wedding. It's even more commonplace to see these same men in an unexcited state when it comes to wearing a wedding band. Being a married man I can attest to this because at that time and prior to my engagement I loathed wearing any type of jewelry. Mind you most men have no problem letting others know they're off the market, however the choices for Mens Wedding Bands has traditionally been very limited and somewhat unappealing which has caused a majority of men to cringe at these choices.

As the pendulum swings both ways, and as doors open and close, opinions have changed dramatically in the past few years regarding men's wedding bands. I believe this change can be attributed mainly to the new, classier selection of wedding bands available and even to the more affordable choices being offered.

Leading the charge in this change of opinions are Titanium wedding rings. Though they are available for both brides and grooms Titanium rings are immensely popular with men for two big reasons, price and stylish presentation. Titanium wedding bands boast a unique look that men wont find in the more traditional gold, silver, and even diamond rings. In addition to that the cost of these types of rings allows those who are budget conscience to dedicate a little extra to the wedding as prices are generally much more affordable when compared to more traditional rings.

Another popular choice for alternative men's wedding bands is Tungsten. Tungsten offers up many of the same things Titanium does in terms of affordability, attractiveness and boast many different designs that aren't found in traditional rings. These newer metals have allowed many men who would have never considered wearing a wedding band to be comfortable with a stylish ring. Other men who may have just not cared much for sliver, gold, and diamond now have several alternatives that come not just in different colors but styles that can be considered more "manly".

So which ring did I settle on? Well initially I was unimpressed with all of the rings my then fiancee and I viewed and as I was not the type of male to wear any type of jewelry I tried to convince her to allow me to remain ring free. She is a more traditional type of person than I, and I was talked into taking a look at some alternative choices for my mens wedding bands. I saw Tungsten and Titanium and ended up going with the latter as I found a solid black Titanium ring that fit both my personal style of dress and sense of humor perfectly.
