Ceramic is fairly new to the jewelry industry. In fact 10 years ago no one had heard of them. Now ceramic wedding bands make up a large portion of black wedding bands. They have quickly become more popular than black tungsten because they resist scratching better and the color of them never fades. If you like an alternative look you should really look at getting a black ceramic ring.
Another type of metal that is making a big impression is palladium. So if you had consider platinum in the past you might want to look into a palladium wedding band. The look is the same. It is lighter and the cost is just a fraction of a platinum ring. So there are many things to consider now when you are looking to buy a wedding band. I hope this helps with your decision.
