4 Amazing Alternative Metal Men’s Wedding Bands: Platinum, Tungsten, Silver, and Steel

Did you know that men’s wedding bands can be made of platinum, rose or white gold, titanium, tungsten, silver, and even Damascus steel? We bring you the best men’s wedding band designs!

For every engagement, there is always a flood of friends and family who want to see the gorgeous engagement ring you spent so much time choosing for your future spouse. Their engagement ring is an important symbol in your marriage story, but your wedding band is just as important and meaningful. You’ll wear your wedding band for the rest of your life, and it should be a personal, durable, stylish band you can cherish forever.

Fortunately, men’s wedding band options have vastly expanded in recent years, so you have plenty of choices. The sheer number of possible rings can be overwhelming, but a great place to start is by selecting the kind of metal you want. Men’s wedding bands used to be offered mostly in gold, but there are now several metals to choose from — each with their own benefits.

Platinum, tungsten, silver and steel are all excellent alternative metals for men’s wedding rings, and we’ll discuss each of their strengths here. Once you figure out what metal and style you want for your ring, it’s easy to find a wedding band you’ll be proud to wear forever.


Platinum has been a popular metal in the jewelry world for years and it’s no wonder why — platinum’s unbelievable durability and beauty make it a perfect metal for lifelong wear. Even tougher than gold, platinum can handle nicks and scratches from everyday use. Platinum is also great for people with allergies and sensitivities to certain metals because it’s hypoallergenic.

If you’re looking for a premium men’s wedding band with a matte, silvery look that you can pass down for generations, platinum might be the right metal for you.
