      I think we are going with tungsten! Thanks for your input. Is the ring super heavy? I heard the material is heavier than platnium or gold?

        Thanks for the info Kat, I never thought about if the ring might have to be cut off, and FI is super active playing sports!!

        You can't cut tungsten, and it close to impossible to cut titanium, so if your hubby works with hands or play some sports where his finger can get caught, I would not recommend either. I feel white gold is more safe due to that issue. If anything it can easily be cut off his finger. Tungsten will shutter if you need to free his finger, but you wont be able to put it back together. Also both of those metals can't be resized. So if he will gain some weight down the road he might have to get a new ring if you go with tungsten or titanium. I hope it helps

          FI has white gold, he had wanted tungsten, but changed his mind at the last minute...I love the look of tungsten, but the whole not being able to cut it worried me.

              Hit send too quickly, I may have to reevaluate about the whole unable to bend factor, if in an accident.

                  While it's true you can't cut tungsten, you are able to get it off in an emergency with vice grips. It would shatter under the pressure and free your finger. You just wouldn't be able to solder it back together like you could with a white gold ring.

                      FI is getting white gold. He liked that he would be able to get it sized later on if he needed to. I would have loved to get something cheaper, but I guess I can't complain given how much we spent on my rings!
