Ceramic wedding bands have hit the wedding jewelry market to take the place of black tungsten rings. The best thing about ceramic rings is that they are black all the way through. Black tungsten rings are just coated in black. This can be good for someone that is allergic to all metals, but over time this black coating will wear off. This is not a good look. The metal below it is a shiny grayish color so you don’t want your wedding band looking old. Black ceramic rings come from the zirconium metal. This metal is used to make synthetic diamonds. It is a really tough metal that is virtually scratch resistant. They also use this metal in for airplanes and bullet proof vests. It is a very stylish option and will look great for decades.
Speaking of decades, gold wedding bands have been around for centuries. These rings are great for a number of reasons. They are the most common precious metal. They are the ones that your parents, grandparents and great grandparents wore. In fact many families will pass down their wedding bands to many generations. It is a great tradition. It is like you are passing on a part of you to generations of your family you will never meet or see you. There are usually family pictures that accompany these wedding bands.
