|WEDDING RINGS/ ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS|
Alternative materials used in wedding rings
The soaring price of precious metals has led to an inevitable increase in the cost of wedding rings and other jewellery, particulary in Platinium and Gold.
This has lead to the rise in popularity of alternative materials such as palladium (a member of the platinum family), titanium and zirconium in wedding rings and other jewellery. Mainly due to the price of these metals being more affordable and of course hard wearing and lightweight.
Pebbles Jewellery leads the field in this respect by strongly featuring rings in Titanium, Palladium and Zirconium alongside their collections in Platinium and Gold, thus giving our customers the opportunity to be among the first to appreciate the beauty, strength and value of these alternatives to the more traditional metals.
Freedom of choice in mens wedding rings
Where traditionally a mans wedding ring would be a plain gold or platinum band, there is now much more choice available for him and not just plain bands. Designs, matt or polished finishes, with or without diamonds or be more individual with colours in titanium, zirconium and palladium. The affordabillity of these rings has the added bonus of leaving more of the budget available for the Bride to select her ring!
Expanding range of wedding ring metals
The choice is now yours with regards to which material you would like your wedding rings to be made from. The ever expanding range of materials gives you an exciting and alternative choice of colour, finish and diamond settings.
Traditional or alternative wedding ring?
If a traditional wedding ring is a court ring in either gold or platinum then would an alternative be a court ring made in palladium, zirconium, or titanium? However, maybe that is not alternative enough and shape has also to be considered so square shaped rings, rings with notched edges, bespoke shapes, and irregular profiles.
Then there is colour, again a traditional ring would be white or yellow, so colour combinations of yellow and white gold, black and white, colours from brown to pink, blacks and greys are all available and again could be considered alterantive wedding rings.
How about a ring that has all of these alternative characteristics, does that become the ultimate alternative wedding ring?
