There are a few different types of alternative metals used for wedding bands such as titanium, tungsten carbide, cobalt,
and ceramic wedding rings. These metals are not precious. It is an alternative choice to gold, platinum, and palladium wedding rings.
WeddingBands.com only carries titanium and cobalt for alternative metals. Below can find more information about each alternative metal
TITANIUM, Named for the Titans, sons of the Greek gods, Titanium, when pure, is
a lustrous, grayish white metal. It has a low density, good strength, is easily
fabricated, and has excellent corrosion resistance. It is mainly used in
jewelry as an accent metal in Men's jewelry. Its inertness and ability to be
attractively colored also make it a popular metal for use in body piercing.
COBALT, is an alternative metal, white color, harder than platinum, and similar to platinum appearance. Cobalt is not a
precious metal. It is more scratch resistant than titanium and other precious metals. It can be sized slightly without
cutting into the ring. The weights of cobalt rings are very similar to the weight of gold rings. Cobalt does not contain
harmful alloys and as of today does not cause any allergic reactions.
My beautiful wife of 18 years lost her wedding ring. After checking local jewelry stores for a replacement WeddingBands.com had the exact style size as our original band...PLUS they engraved it with our wedding date FOR FREE! Great service received it within a week of ordering...cant ask for better than that. Thank-you so much WeddingBands.com!- George W.,
We bought 5 mm 18K two tone wedding rings. They are beautiful fit perfectly and engraving is wonderful. The shipment was fast. Thank you WeddingBands!- SR KR,
I ordered the Lords Prayer Wedding Band-14K Yellow Gold. I love the ring and its meaning. My husband and I have been married for 40 years and I wanted something to celebrate that. The only complaint I would have is that the prayer and cross are really hard to see. Maybe antiquing would make it show up better. However I would highly recommend this ring to anyone who would like to express their spiritual nature.- Shirley S.,

My name is Lee Casey I am Cynthias husband to be. I am actually was the one who ordered the ring. The process was extreme quick and easy. I have to say I had my reservations about ordering a wedding band online considering how special the ring is and everyone wants it to be perfect. No one wants a unpleasant surprises especially on their wedding band. After ordering my ring I discovered I made a mistake on the inscription and the next morning I call WeddingBands.com and spoke to a pleasant young man who immediately helped me correct my mistake. My ring arrived and it was perfect and at a really great price. My ring priced at a jewelry store close to me was over $400 more than what I paid for the exact same ring. I honestly would encourage anyone to at least check them out and if you decide to buy your ring from WeddingBands.Com I honestly believe you wont be sorry.- Cynthia R.,
