Using the term metal alongside the word wedding band is not the most romantic thing in the world; however, the ring is indeed composed of a metallic material and one has a wide range of options when looking to purchase a particular type of wedding band. Gold is one type of material that a couple may choose to have their wedding rings made of. Rings made of gold come in either white gold or yellow gold in a variety of karats, i.e., 10 karat, 14 karat, or 24 karat. Another popular type of metal that wedding rings are composed of is platinum. Platinum wedding bands have become increasingly more desirable in the past few years. Platinum rings tend to be pricier than gold ones; however, it is a beautiful metal type that is strong as well. If it will not empty your pocketbook or wallet, platinum is a great choice for a wedding ring.
Finding a wedding ring for men is much simpler than getting one for women. Most men prefer a simple band that does not show off much. In this manner, there are somewhat lesser choices but they are all quite elegant and classy in nature. Currently, the market is being ruled by rings and bands made from platinum. The wedding ring design with platinum is usually quite simple and does not look very loud. It can be easily engraved with lettering, something that suits the wedding bands. Platinum is also hypo allergic and will not cause any allergies in the hands as well.
There are a number of options for the style of engagement ring that you go for, but the main issue, especially in this financial climate is the budget. The budget will be determined by the cut, carat size and the precious metal that you use to mount the gem. Obviously gold and platinum will be more costly but equally for a special ring that is going to last you a lifetime, anything less would not quite be up to scratch. The size of the diamond or the number of diamonds you have on your ring will also bump up the costs. Now remember that you do not need to stick to a diamond as there are so many gemstones that can be used in the perfect engagement ring. You can often find a smaller but clearer diamond or gem which gives more sparkle than a larger less clear gemstone, and it is probably better to go for the smaller one in terms of the healing benefits of a gemstone that a large one with imperfections.
