What is Cobalt Chrome?

The newest alternative metal to hit the market are cobalt chrome wedding bands. These rings are taking the market by storm. With the price of precious metals going through the roof many people are looking for an alternative to more expensive metals. The first alternative metal to hit the market were titanium rings. These rings were a great alternative but there are always ways to improve your jewelry selection.

After titanium tungsten came on strong. In fact tungsten wedding bands are still very popular. The downfall to tungsten rings is that they are much darker than white gold wedding bands. So when you are trying to match her ring with a tungsten ring it isn’t a very good look. In fact the darkness of tungsten clashes badly with white gold or platinum. So cobalt chrome is a good alternative metal that will match but won’t bust the bank.
