i like the way titanium looks but will end up with platinum since that is the bling bling these days

ETA: damn, that Tungsten Carbide looks cool too.

The tungsten carbide one is very cool!

Go with the carbide and see if you can get it Titanium Nitride Coated, or TiN Coated.

TiN Coating

You would be able to cut glass with it when you are done

Can a Tungsten ring be cut off?
Yes! Please be aware that in any situation where it might become necessary to cut off a tungsten ring - for instance excessive weight gain, hand injury, etc., - cutting through tungsten will be more difficult than cutting through gold or platinum. However, it can still be done. In our own jewelry shop, as in many other jewelry shops, we have a cutting tool designed for cutting titanium and tungsten wedding bands. In addition, when we contacted our local hospital emergency room and asked if they were equipped to cut off a tungsten rings in an emergency, they told us that most hospital emergency rooms are prepared to handle almost anything, and assured us that it would be no problem for them.

During our 30 years of jewelry repair experience, we've only seen a dozen or so rings that have been cut off in hospital emergency rooms, and in most of those cases the rings had been bent out-of-round and was putting painful pressure on the finger. Tungsten rings are less likely to crush or bend out-of-round, so if you shut your hand in a car door or drop a heavy object on it, you might be safer wearing a tungsten ring than a precious metal band! Nonetheless, check with your local jeweler or medical facility if you have concerns.

Tungsten is WAY harder than titanium so it should be no sweat, no matter what you wear.

TiNi.

DO NOT GET TITANIUM RINGS. If you are in a horrible accident or have swelling, no ring cutter will get it off. That means by the time the hospital figures out how to cut the titanium off your finger might be dead and you may need to get an amputation. We had a dude with a titanium ring and it messed up the ring cutter blade pretty bad. Only scratched the ring cutter. I never did find out how they got the damn thing off.

There are different alloys of titanium, allegedly the "aircraft-grade" rings are the most difficult to cut off with the softer alloys/grades alledgedly being readily cut.

Tungsten Carbide rings are to be broken off using vice grips in an emergency. Clamp the vice grips down and tighten, unlock the vice grips tighten them slightly then squueze down to close them and the rings should crack, open the vice grips, change their position on the rings and close the vice grips again to break the ring in a second spot.

I don't know how many ERs keep vice grips on hand though.

How is the weight of it?




When I first put it on it was sort of heavy, but I had never worn a wedding ring, I got used to the weight after a couple of days.

I like the idea that it will not crush or bend, it also has a lifetime warranty against breakage, scratches and sizing

I have a titanium band. Very comfortable and light and tough. I am a mechanic and nothing that I have doen to it so far has done any noticeable damage to it!

Another vote for PLAT. Even though the wife and I are no longer together, I stll have the ring. I plan to give it to my daughter someday. This issimilar to it ( I guess they changed the design in 10 years a little. Same company though):
