When buying a men’s titanium wedding bands there are a few issues you should consider. There are both positive and
negative aspects to titanium jewelry. In general, most people consider purchasing men’s titanium wedding bands,
though you can apply this information to any men’s titanium wedding bands.

A titanium band is a very lightweight metal, and will feel lighter on the finger than a gold or platinum ring. It is also
considerably less expensive than gold or platinum, though the price difference may or may not be remarkable because
working with titanium takes considerably more time than working with gold or platinum. Titanium can also be colored, if
you want black or blue titanium wedding bands for example.

The first thing to remember is to size your titanium band very carefully, because the r band is made of a solid piece of
metal, not soldered together at two points like most metal bands. This means that the band can be 1/4 re-sized if you've
ordered the wrong size. It can be made slightly larger by removing some of the metal on the interior of the band, but the
band cannot be made smaller. Titanium band can be cut off in an emergency, however.

Titanium bands are great for those with metal allergies, because titanium is hypoallergenic. In addition to jewelry, it is
used for surgical implants. Titanium is a very strong metal, but it will show scratches and wear. However, any scratches
can easily be polished out by a professional jeweler, and titanium will not need to be re-coated with rhodium plating the
way white gold does. The rhodium coating gives white gold its silver appearance, but titanium is naturally dark silver,
similar in appearance to stainless steel.

 Men’s titanium wedding bands can be customized, such as with gold inlays or with small diamonds or other jewels set
into the bands. This needs to be done at the time of manufacture. Titanium can be made into a prong setting, so it is not
traditionally made into engagement bands. One option to save money is to have the groom's band made out of titanium,
and the bride's engagement ring and wedding band made out of white gold or platinum. The rings will appear similar,
but the groom's wedding band will be less expensive and stronger.
