Cobalt Rings & Wedding Bands

Cobalt Chrome, also known as cobalt, is an extremely hypoallergenic metal used for decades in medical implants. This metal is just as white as platinum or white gold and is very durable. It has better scratch resistance than titanium wedding bands, and is much whiter in color. Cobalt chrome rings and wedding bands, also called cobalt rings for short, are ideal for couples who need their wedding rings to match the color of white gold or platinum, yet be very affordable.  Our basic style cobalt rings start at just under $100. The cobalt in cobalt rings is not harmful and will not react with your skin.  If you have heard that rings should not contain cobalt, that is referring to cobalt in tungsten rings.  Different elements react differently when they are combined with each other.  Cobalt combined with chrome forms a very stable and strong bond.  Therefore, it will not react with your body to form an allergic reaction, which is why cobalt chrome is used extensively in the medical implant industry.
