While many masculine engagement rings and wedding rings are still made from precious metals, such as gold, silver, or platinum, there are dozens of material options to choose from. Modern grooms are gravitating toward alternative metals, such as tungsten carbide, carbon fiber, stainless steel, or titanium. Each material has its own qualities and levels of resistance to wear and tear. Remember to perform thorough research before making your final decision. As a rule of thumb, precious metals tend to be more malleable and can be easier for jewelers to resize or customize.
The availability of more materials means that men’s rings have a lot more design choices because jewelers can combine these materials in so many ways. Men’s fashion rings are also available in many colors, ranging from polished silver to shining black. Today’s fine-tuned technology allows jewelers to make a range of finishes and detailed designs on a variety of materials.
