Essex, Florida (PressExposure) June 22, 2009 -- The wedding ring is said to be the symbol of the relationship shared by two people. For some, it is considered as one of the most important part of the wedding as it represents the beginning of the relationship of the marrying couples. This is why it is very crucial for the couples to choose wisely on what kind of wedding ring is perfect for them - a ring that not only looks good and luxurious, but a ring that would endure as long as their relationship can, or even longer.
Here are some of the important things that couples should take note when it comes to choosing or deciding what kind of wedding ring is perfect for them.
Material One of the most important things that couples should look at is the material used for the wedding ring. There are various materials used in wedding rings today that couples could freely choose from. Yellow gold is used to make the traditional gold wedding rings. Platinum, white gold, and palladium are used to create white wedding rings. These make up some of the most luxurious looking wedding rings because of their style, color, and luster. Newly introduced wedding rings such as titanium and tungsten wedding rings are also gaining more popularity because of their durability compared to other wedding rings.
It's also important to note that several wedding rings may cause irritations to sensitive skin. Gold, one of the most common type of metal used in wedding rings, can be considered as the most potent one in terms of causing skin irritation. This is because of the nickel in its composition. Even platinum and white gold contain nickel. This is why several people have also developed skin irritation after using them.
In response to this, jewelers have come to use palladium instead of nickel as their whitening compound so as to avoid any kind of skin irritation. However since palladium is more expensive than nickel, platinum and white gold wedding rings that use palladium have become more expensive than before.
Titanium and tungsten wedding rings, however, do not cause any kind of skin irritations or allergic reactions. Their composition is inert and has very little chance of reacting with skin and acids.
