Platinum Mens Wedding Bands: Best Hypoallergenic Wedding Bands
Posted on November 29 2011
Many people suffer from metal allergies, including nickel allergies. Your skin may become itchy, irritated, or even turn green from a reaction to nickel found in much jewelry, including white gold. The best hypoallergenic metal is platinum. Not only are platinum mens wedding bands available in many different styles, they are also nickel-free. We create each mens platinum wedding band with platinum 950, which is 95% pure platinum and 5% iridium, which is a rare metal in the platinum family.
Platinum men’s wedding bands are 1.7 times denser than gold, which means they are heavier than gold rings. Platinum is also a superior white metal, which means it is bright silvery white the entire way through, which is not true for white gold rings. Although gold rings are less expensive at first than platinum, the periodic rhodium-platinum for white gold rings can turn out to be quite costly in a lifetime.
Finding the best precious metal for your chemistry can be quite difficult if you have nickel allergy, however our wide selection of platinum mens wedding bands will help you find the ring that is a perfect match for you.
