    Engagement Ring Metals: What's Best for You?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    There are a number of different metals that can be used for engagement rings and wedding bands. While many shoppers consider only the color of the metal, there are other elements to consider before choosing the metal that will be perfect for your ring.

    In this video, you’ll learn more about different types of metals used for engagement rings and wedding bands. Traditional yellow gold and white gold are both popular choices. Platinum is another popular choice, especially because it is purer and stronger than gold metals. Palladium is another pure white metal that has become popular for wedding jewelry.

    You’ll be able to find these great metals when you search for an engagement ring here at Charleston Alexander in Bethesda and Falls Church . Start your jewelry search today by calling us at (301) 951-6200 or visiting us online.
