Essex, Florida (PressExposure) July 16, 2009 -- Wedding rings are made for both the women and the men but the only thing that every man face when it comes to choosing their wedding ring is the kind of wedding ring they would like. A typical man doesn't usually wear any kind of jewelry. For some men, the only time they wear jewelry is the time they get married, which requires them to wear their wedding ring as a sign of fidelity to their marriage. This is the reason why many couples have had difficulties trying to find the right wedding ring for the groom. One problem pertaining to this is that wedding rings are sometimes made for the women, particularly with platinum and white gold. Though gold is the typical wedding ring said to be perfect for the men, gold have become too old for some.
Other than gold, several wedding rings have been introduced into the market that could provide the right features that men want. These are titanium and tungsten rings. Many consider that titanium and tungsten rings are the kind of rings worn by men. This is because of their bulky features often associated with a man's masculinity as well as their gun-metal gray and black color. Now the question is, which is better? Titanium or tungsten?
Comparison between tungsten and titanium rings
So which is the best? Titanium, as we all know, is one of the strongest known metal around, particularly those seen on movies and on TVs. In fact, titanium is much more than that. Other than its strong properties, titanium is also known for its light weight, which is why it's also known as the âspace age metalâ. It has a low density and is a strong, lustrous, corrosion-resistant transition metal with silver as its natural color. These are some of its features that made it very popular as a wedding ring. However, because of its light weight, people usually found it less appealing than other forms of wedding rings. This is because luxury in terms of jewelry typically involves the weight of the jewelry. Another is that it doesn't convey a sense of masculinity in its weight.
Tungsten, on the other hand, isn't as light as titanium, but similar in durability. Tungsten is known to have the highest melting point in all non-alloyed metals. For this, tungsten is commonly used for heavy duty applications such as for cutting tools. Because of its density, which is similar to gold, tungsten is known to be as the perfect alternative to gold and platinum. Also, because of its hardness, jewelers found tungsten rings as perfect wedding rings that could last for years. Because of its bulky features and dark metal gray color, which clearly represents masculinity, a tungsten ring is quite suited as a man's wedding ring.
