Some couples may decide to forego the traditional golad wedding bands and look for something more unique on their wedding day. In this case, they may choose a tungsten ring and, since there are plenty of options to choose from, they may be feeling overwhelmed. A black tungsten wedding band may be the perfect choice.

Black Wedding Rings Are a Trend Right Now

If being hip and fashionable is important to you, then choosing a black tungsten wedding band may be the perfect choice for you. These types of rings didn’t become popular until recently when traditional metals like platinum or gold ruled the wedding band industry. Many don’t want to go a more traditional route and they are looking for something different and unique and so entered the black wedding band. These looks are more modern and may just fit the personality of you or your groom.

There is Plenty of Variety

Since these rings are growing in popularity, there are plenty of styles to choose from. You may not think that a black ring may not be all that exciting and there wouldn’t be options to choose form, but that’s a myth. Since these are made with tungsten, jewelers can incorporate other materials into it as well. There are many that aren’t just simple black and have designs or diamonds incorporated into them.

These Rings Are Affordable

Platinum and gold are very expensive materials and so the price of the ring is much higher than with these styles of rings. If you are looking for a budget friendly option, especially since weddings are so much money, then this might be the right ring.

There are a few drawbacks to these rings to keep in mind. They will not be able to be resized after purchase, but some jewelers will offer you sizing warranties so you can order a new ring if you need a new size. Since these rings are trendier, they will not be as timeless as some of the other rings available on the market. If having a timeless look is important to you then might want to consider other options. Although, when is black ever going to go out of fashion?

Also, make sure you know what exactly the ring is made out of. Some black tungsten rings are made with materials that will scratch. Tungsten rings aren’t supposed to scratch, which is one of the benefits of having a tungsten ring in the first place. Since tungsten is gray, there will need to be a material that makes it black and it’s a good idea to ask your jeweler about whether it will scratch so you aren’t surprised a few years down the road.
