Men’s Promise Ring Metals
Men’s Promise Rings come in almost any metal you can imagine. It is very popular to make men’s promise rings in materials such as sterling silver, titanium or cobalt. These new metals make the men’s promise rings look very trendy and cool. Plated metals make color play easy and fun. See below for some jewelry in different color combinations.

Ceramic men’s promise rings do have their drawbacks.
They are very delicate, and if dropped, they tend to shatter. You will need to weigh looks versus use in this case. Also, titanium is considered somewhat dangerous. If you happen to break your finger or if your finger swells, it cannot be cut off. Swelling can be incredibly dangerous. Imagine getting a bee sting on your finger and not being able to get your ring off. Cobalt is probably one of the safest metals you can select for a contemporary metal. It can be cracked off easily. The other significant consideration to make when looking at men’s promise rings in alternative metals is that they cannot be sized. If your finger size fluctuates, you will not be able to wear it all the time. All of these factors are what make sterling silver men’s promise rings the most popular. They are versatile, safe and sizeable.
