Hey guys...
I'm new here, but I'm looking for some advice and I hope you can help! I've been looking at wedding bands and there are sooooo many options. I'm thinking that picking out what metal I'd like might help me narrow it down. I'm not a gold fan, so it needs to be white, and I want something durable since I'm pretty active. Any advice?

Am a fan of platinum.

It is white, like white gold;
It is hard, and you can have it polished frequently.
It is harder than gold, more durable, won't bend as easily if you choose a very narrow mm band.

Only down side, is I believed it is more expensive than gold.

I had my wife's wedding ring made from white gold to match her
engagement ring that i bought in Aruba. It is a one of a kind ring
with a sapphire center stone w/ diamond around it.
The wedding was designed to wrap the back shape of the other ring with diamonds.
For our 10 anniversary I will have the front band made like back ring and maybe if we have any children by then i will have their
birth stone has center jewel.

My wife gets compliment on it all the time.. A lot it look real expensive. Its worth 5x as much as I paid.

Sorry way off topic

My wife and I have plantinum bands and we both are very happy with the choice. Expensive yes but maybe as a one time purchase its worth it to you. I got a comfort band which has also been a good thing. My wife wanted me to get a few diamonds in my band (she was paying for it) to match hers but I said no which I'm also happy about. The ring takes a beating as I work on cars, boats, the house etc. I'm sure the stones would have been long gone by now. Good Luck!

My husband got a tungsten ring ....as durable as plantinum and titanium....but somewhat cheaper and it can be cut off your finger if ever necessary. The jeweler told us one (or both? ) of those can't be cut off in case of an emergency.

I like platimun
White gold is an alloy of gold mixtures and is high upkeep, gold also is softer and wears down.

Platimun looks like new even 100 years later.

Thanks for all of your suggestions! Platinum seems like the metal for me... I really like that it's durable and naturally white. Plus, unlike some of the newer men's wedding band materials, it can be resized (and cut off in an emergency). I looked into the price, and was really surprised to find that the price difference (per ounce) between platinum and gold is only about $250 right now, which is not nearly as big as a lot of people make it out to be.

Anyway, now I just have to do some style comparisons... if anyone would like to weigh in on these rings, it would be greatly appreciated!

I personally have a weakness for very old platinum jewelry. Like 1800's type and also art deco peices... and mine cut diamonds.

Modern looking jewelry is boring to me... but those old peices from the 1800's kinda make me weak at the knees they are so beautiful with so much artistic detail !

Not that I would buy anything so expensive in the form of jewelry but I do admire the old stuff as I see it as very artistic and beautiful.
Cool too, that back in certain eras, they used colored stones as
engagement rings, like this
which is
veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy beauutiful
