If you are looking to get married or looking to get a new wedding band you have probably heard of tungsten rings. You probably have seen someone wearing a tungsten carbide ring as well. These rings are considered the new white metal. Platinum or silver are the most widely worn white metals but now tungsten has hit the market with a lot of force. Some might say that they actually white because they have a dark even black tent to them depending on the lighting. In the right lighting they are white and even sometimes look like a mirror.
When you are looking at wedding bands you want to decide on the metal before you decide on the style or design of the ring. If you find a design you absolutely love and then you find out you can’t get it in the type of metal you like you will be very disappointed. So find the metal you like first. If you are allergic to nickel you will want to avoid white gold or tungsten rings. Both of those types of rings contain at least a little nickel. If you have an allergy and get one you will find that it will cause skin irritation and make it so you can’t wear you ring.
