Gold is a classic choice for wedding rings, and for good reason. It's a durable and long-lasting metal that's available in a variety of colours, including yellow, white, and rose gold. It's also a very malleable metal, making it easy to create intricate designs and details. Gold is also a very popular metal for couples who want to add diamonds or other precious stones to their wedding rings.


Platinum is one of the most durable metals available, making it an excellent choice for wedding rings. It's also hypoallergenic, making it a great option for people with sensitive skin. Platinum is a very dense and heavy metal, which gives it a luxurious feel. It has a unique grey-white colour that doesn't tarnish or fade over time, making it a great option for those who want a long-lasting, low-maintenance ring.


Titanium is a lightweight and durable metal that's perfect for those who want a wedding ring that can withstand an active lifestyle. It's also hypoallergenic, making it a great choice for people with sensitive skin. Titanium is available in a variety of colours, including black, silver, and gold.

Tantalum is perfect for those with active lifestyles as it is a pure mined metal that is hard wearing. Tantalum is hypoallergenic and is resistant to corrosion. It can be resized and can be matte, brushed, polished or a hammered finish.  

Carbon Fibre

Carbon fibre wedding bands are perfect for those who want a sleek, modern look that is both durable and comfortable to wear. The material is incredibly strong and scratch-resistant, yet lightweight and flexible enough to conform to the wearer's finger. Carbon fibre wedding rings can come in a variety of designs, including simple and understated bands or more intricate styles with added details like gemstones or other metals. They also come in a range of colours, from classic black to metallic silver or gold. Carbon fibre has an organic texture which is similar to wood, however, cannot be resized.
