Have you been looking into choosing tungsten for your wedding band? Well, if you are, then you might wish to take a look at this demonstration video.
The video illustrates that precious metals will indeed bend. Therefore, should you need you ring resized down the road, then this can be accomplished. And let’s face it – most Americans tend to gain or lose weight over their lifetime, and some may fluctuate quite a bit. So if you like to remove your wedding band but gain a few pounds over time, a precious metal wedding band can be adjusted. And precious metals can be refinished to look close to new as well.
Tungsten can not bend, although it can shatter. You can not size your tungsten wedding band. This is such a shame due to the fact that history shows that trends change quite a bit in the jewelry industry, and the manufacturer of the tungsten wedding band that you purchased may or may not be around in five or ten years. The same goes for any online wedding band website that may have sold you the ring. You should ask yourself a simple question – who will honor their exchange policy (if they have one) should I need a new tungsten wedding band in the future?
Wedding bands are symbolic of love that should last forever. And shouldn’t you be able to keep that original symbol of your love on your finger forever? A lot of consumers choose to upgrade their wedding bands over time, but many decide to keep their original wedding band on their hand for as long as possible. So protect your wedding band investment, and perhaps choose one created with a precious metal. After all, love is precious, and so should wedding band.
If price is really an issue during this tough economic time, then you may wish to consider palladium for your wedding band. Palladium is a naturally white metal that currently costs much less than white gold. While platinum is the premium metal for jewelry, palladium is a strong choice if platinum is not an option.
Should the relative price point of a tungsten wedding band be attractive, then why not consider Argentium Sterling Silver? Argentium Sterling Silver is easy to care for and does not tarnish easily. It is an attractive – if not somewhat new – option for your wedding band when looking for something that costs even less than palladium, but might be priced similar to the tungsten wedding bands seen on many popular websites (starting at $149.00). Spending a little more now is definitely beneficial over the long haul.
