If you’ve been watching the news lately, you may be a little nervous about making any major purchases.  With the recent downgrade in America’s credit rating, it looks like the economy will be shaky for a while, which means that now is not the best time to buy expensive items on a credit card.  In response to growing concern over the economy, many engaged couples have asked me how they can find the best men’s ring for their money.   What I tell them may surprise you.


It used to be that the only way to save money on wedding rings was to buy one in sterling silver or stainless steel, or look for a very narrow 10K gold band. Fortunately, that is no longer the case.  Men’s rings are now available in a wide variety of durable and maintenance-free metals that are much less expensive than gold or platinum.  The problem is, if you walk into the average jewelry store they will still try to convince you to buy a pricey men’s ring.  There is certainly nothing wrong with precious metals, and if you can afford one there is no reason to avoid them.  But you may be surprised at the beauty, quality and strength of alternative metals like tungsten, titanium and cobalt.

Where can you find the best men’s rings in alternative styles?

As I mentioned above, there is no guarantee you will find a brick-and-mortar retailer with a variety of tungsten, cobalt or titanium rings, but you will find a nice selection of industrial metals at specialty stores online.  When you visit Mens-Wedding-Rings.com, for example, you will find an unparalleled assortment of rings made of titanium, tungsten carbide, cobalt chrome, sterling silver and stainless steel.  But you will also find an incredible selection of gold, platinum and palladium men’s wedding rings from top designers.   The difference here goes far beyond the selection.  It is also evident in the price.

What is the difference in price between precious metals and alternative metals?

The price of men’s wedding rings at Mens-Wedding-Rings.com is surprisingly low, especially considering how nice they are.  For example, even the most attractive black stainless steel rings and polished stainless steel Celtic knot rings are less than $30 each.  Most of their stylish titanium rings are under $35, with just a few in the $40 to $50 range.  A surprisingly handsome selection of tungsten rings is priced between $30 and $75.

Compared to the price of a similar ring in yellow or white gold, these men’s rings are a great value.  For example, their collection of 14K white gold rings ranges from just under $100 to over $600.  But if you still have your heart set on a gold ring, Mens-Wedding-Rings.com is the best place to get it.  In a recent press release, Mens-Wedding-Rings.com announced that they have rolled back their gold prices to 2009 levels.

To summarize, if you want to know where to get the best men’s wedding rings for your money, skip the jewelers at the mall and head to Mens-Wedding-Rings.com.
