Change of taste reflected in the choice wedding ring
Wedding ring is generally made up of precious yellow alloy of gold, hardened with copper and Silver or tin and bismuth. Copper, silver, tin or bismuth is used to make the gold more durable and hard. Now a day a trend is that wedding ring can not be made with out platinum or titanium. These are more durable and fashionable too. Platinum with white alloys of gold are demanding by the wedding couples. Slightly yellow white gold alloys which was used with gold is now replaced with cheaper nickel-gold alloy with a plating of rhodium. This can be cheap than before but it is it is not at all durable and good. As we have said earlier that titanium has become a hot element for making a wedding ring and every couple wants that. The reasons are its durability, affordability, and gunmetal grey color. Tungsten carbide is also another metal which is gradually picking its name in this list of wedding ring materials. With gold or platinum inlays tungsten carbide is used.
The most inexpensive and common ring material is nickel silver. Now the most shocking and striking news in this ground is that couples are also considering stainless steel as the material for their wedding ring. It is equally durable like platinum and titanium and can be molded to a finer finish than the metals mentioned before. But probable problem is that it corrodes over time and thus do not convey a sense of permanence. That is the same problem with metals like brass, silver and copper. The toxicity of aluminum and tin and carcinogenic nature of lead have made these metals not suitable for making wedding rings. Wood, stone and organic materials can also be used for decorations and adding more beauty to the ring.
Another factor is very important and that is cut of the diamond stone. There are various measurements for a diamond expert. As for instance facet numbers and angles determine the cut of a precious stone but all these things are not very much important for a diamond ring buyer or for a wedding buyer. They just have to choose what shape they like. It can be round cut oval shaped, square cut like princess cut gems, marquise cut or an emerald cut. Choose the one which one seems to you the loveliest and good looking. It is all about your taste.
