Men's Titanium Wedding Band

Does anybody know where we might find a jeweler that has Men's Titanium Wedding Bands in the general area? We are in near Flemington, NJ/New Hope, PA. Thanks!

    Just about all of them carry them, in limited selections.  I would buy online though....better selection and price.  Why Titanium?

    MH has a titanium wedding band and he loves it.  He says you can run a car over it....hopefully while not on his finger LOL.
    We got ours in NYC so not close to you.  I'm sure most jewlers carry them.

    The only problem with Titanium is that they cannot ever be sized up or down.

    that wouldn't worry me as much as if something ever were to happen (getting your finger slammed in a door etc) and your finger swells, there is no way to cut off the ring. he would lose his finger before the ring could be taken off. Not worth it to me to save the $$

    FI just got his ring from Jared's...it's cobalt, Scott Kay, but they had a pretty good selection of titanium there. We went to the one in Paramus, but I know there is one in Freehold.

    mh's ring is black tungsten....we got it from titaniumkay.com
    they were really easy to work with and the shipping was free, and fast
    we had a special engraving request (wanted the green lantern symbol engraved on the outside) and they were able to do that...they send you the ring to make sure it fits, then you ship it back and they engrave it....it was so quick and easy....and it turns out he's wearing the ring more often than we thought he would
    the ring was $99 i think?  hubs didn't want to spend a lot of money on it since he didn't think he'd wear it a lot......
    the tungsten can't be resized either though, but you can keep shipping it back until you find the right size

    Think twice about titanium. Not being able to EVER resize the ring is a big deal. How many guys do you know who maintain their weight throughout their life?

    Titanium CAN be cut off, but special cutter is required.  Tungsten is much easier to remove, it's brittle under pressure and it can be cracked off in a vise.

    Anyhow, I don't view the resizing thing a huge deal.  The rings are relatively inexpensive so if you are that worried about it get the ring and also get one that is a size large/smaller for down the road.  Also, most places have lifetime resizing policy's where only a 25 dollar fee is required.

    MH loved the look of it.  Not flashy and more rugged and since he does't wear any jewelry it was right up his alley.  Hi User :)

    Hi Ladies, I've heard that titanium can be resized, it is just more difficult and not all jewelers can do this and that in case of an emergency, they can indeed cut off a titanium ring and no fingers will be lost.   I have also heard that many jewelers spread this myth to try to sell more expensive rings made of platinum or what not. 

    Also, my friend has a titanium ring and loves it.  It's pretty lightweight and durable, which may be appealing for guys who don't feel comfortable wearing rings, etc.  My fiance and I are still debating platinum vs. tungsten vs. titanium for his ring.

    Anyway, good luck wedding band shopping!

    I don't think the resizing would be cost effective vs the cost of a replacement.

    Anyhow, my biggest complaint with titanium is that it scratches easily, and most of the rings are polished.  They require a lot of maint.

    My tung ring still looks like new and I punish it, wearing while doing yard work,etc.  It is heavy though, and I never forget it's there.

    I guess everything is a trade off.

    Cobalt falls between the two.
