Wedding rings – bands worn by both the bride and groom during the ceremony

  1. Gold – the more pure it is, the more malleable; thus, for wedding rings, it is good to consider 14K or 18K gold since it has already been mixed with copper and zinc and will most likely stand the test of time without getting deformed
  2. White gold – gold is combined with zinc, nickel, platinum and silver to come up with the finish that is similar to silver
  3. Rose gold – gold is combined with copper to create the rosy color
  4. Silver – fine silver is not durable because like pure gold, it is malleable, that is why it is usually mixed with other metals to produce sterling silver which can be used for making wedding rings
  5. Platinum – extremely rare and more precious than gold, it looks like silver but is actually a different type of metal; since it’s a heavier metal, it can withstand the abuse a wearer will most likely give it during his/her lifetime
  6. Titanium – has a silver-white color and is the hardest natural metal in the world yet is light and is hypoallergenic
  7. Tungsten – steel gray metal used by gun manufacturers, resistant to scratching, and is hypoallergenic
