Default On the topic of wedding rings...

... what type of metal (is that the right word?) do you prefer?

My engagement ring is white gold and so far has held up fantastically. I've heard that gold can be pretty soft and scratch easily. Stainless steel or sterling silver? Platinum I had on my class ring.. It scratched as well. Titanium?

My wedding band no longer fits with the humidity here. My fingers are like sausages. Lol. It's made from antler, so there is nothing that can be done to make it smaller or larger. So.. I'm looking at new options. Yes, I could go without one but I don't really want to. For now, my wedding band is on a necklace and I'm looking at:

What are your experiences with things outside of white gold?

Mine is white gold with a 1/4 karat tear cut diamond I think.

It was on clearance xD what can I say? We are both frugal. I don't ever wear it though, because I work with horses & there is the risk of the ring getting snagged in a lead rope or whatever, there have been stories of chicks losing their fingers that wAy
If there are any typos, it means I am on my phone LOL

Mine is stainless steel - super durable, looks just as good as something more expensive, and it was all of $75. lol

This is pretty much the same as mine:

We also looked at Tungsten, Titanium and a few others for DH.

I'm pretty sure we ended up with tungsten and carbon fiber for DH. His ring looks a lot like this:
Erin, Ziva, Kestrel, Aerten, and Snipe

Mine is white gold and it's pretty scratched up. I can't remember what my husband's ring is, but it's a replica of the One Ring

White gold here. I've had a great experience. It gets scratched but we get it replated once a year. Most places offer that if you purchase a plan that is usually reasonably priced. It also includes free resizing.

I have a silver band I wear every day; it's not a wedding band, but it's pretty scratched on the underside after only four months.

White gold, mine is in good shape. I also have a band my husband got me for our 10th anniversary that is white gold and is still in good shape, too.

My rings are white gold. I wish we had gotten platinum or titanium or something. My hands sweat a lot, so the rings yellow rapidly. If I want them to stay looking nice, I'd have to replate them every 3-4 months, and each time I take them in it takes 2ish weeks for them to send them out and get them back. I don't like having naked fingers.

Mine is just plain old stainless steel with our names and date carved into them. I was in the Army when we got married so we kept it pretty plain. I love it though... It spins. LOL
