How To Choose A Men’s Wedding Band

Selecting the right wedding band is a momentous decision, as this symbol of love and commitment will accompany you through life’s journey. At Marci Jewelry, a trusted family business established in 1971, we understand the gravity of this decision. We’re here to guide you with our expertise and passion for celebrating these life milestones.

Understanding Metal Choices

Finding the right metal for your band reflects not just your style, but also your lifestyle. Here's a glimpse into your choices:


  • Varieties: Yellow for timeless charm, White for a modern look, and Rose for a unique blend.
  • Pros: Malleable, classic, and wide range of colors.
  • Cons: Might require occasional polishing.


 A symbol of luxury with unmatched durability


  • Pure Platinum: Generally 95% pure with minimal alloying.
  • Platinum mixed with other metals: Can be alloyed with copper, palladium, iridium, and others.


  • Durability: Highly durable and wears slowly over time.
  • Density: Has a rich, heavy feel.
  • Hypoallergenic: Generally well-suited for people with sensitive skin.
  • Color: Retains its white sheen without tarnishing.


  • Cost: Generally more expensive than other metals.
  • Scratch-prone: While durable, it can scratch and may develop a patina over time.


Modern and lightweight, perfect for those always on the move.


  • Commercially Pure Titanium: Grades 1-4 based on purity.
  • Titanium Alloys: Often alloyed with elements like aluminum or vanadium.


  • Strength: Very high strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Lightweight: Feels light on the finger.
  • Corrosion Resistant: Doesn't tarnish or corrode easily.
  • Hypoallergenic: Good for those with metal allergies.
  • Cost: Generally more affordable than platinum or gold.


  • Non-traditional: Some may prefer the heft of traditional metals.
  • Difficult to Resize: Not as malleable as metals like gold or platinum.

Tungsten Carbide


  • Generally a combination of tungsten and carbon atoms.


  • Scratch Resistance: Highly resistant to scratches.
  • Heft: Has a weighty feel, similar to platinum or gold.
  • Maintains Shine: Keeps its polish and shine for years.
  • Affordability: Typically more affordable than platinum.


  • Brittleness: Can break or shatter if dropped on a hard surface.
  • Resizing: Cannot be resized once formed.

Each metal offers unique characteristics. It's essential to choose the one that aligns with your preferences and lifestyle.
