Wedding ring materials

Yellow gold

Yellow gold is a classic material for wedding rings. You can find wedding rings made of yellow gold at MYTRAURINGstore in the alloys 333, 585 and 750. These details indicate the real gold content in the respective alloy, which is lowest in 333 yellow gold, namely 33.3%, and highest in 750, namely 75 %. The main processed second component of the alloys is silver. Wedding rings in the highest gold alloy with 75% gold have a lower silver content and are therefore less susceptible to contact with water, acids or basic materials, such as. B. Soap. In addition, the golden color is more intense and the value of the material is of course higher.

White gold

White gold wedding rings are very popular. White gold does not occur naturally and is alloyed from yellow gold and additional metals such as silver or palladium. This gold alloy is also available in the 333, 585 and 750 versions. White gold is a very popular and modern material: despite its silver appearance, it is as valuable as real yellow gold and more neutral in color.

Red and rose gold

Red or rose gold is also not a naturally occurring metal. The alloy is also made of yellow gold as well as silver or palladium. But copper is added to this alloy in order to generate the reddish hue. Each manufacture defines its own definition of the color and the name, so that you will find different facets of rose and red gold with us. Thanks to the copper content, the material has a high degree of hardness and can therefore be used excellently for the production of wedding rings. The reddish color in the wedding ring is a real eye-catcher, as this is not in demand so often in this country. You will find beautiful wedding rings made of rose gold with us!


Along with gold and silver, platinum is one of the most valuable precious metals. Wedding rings made of platinum are very noble, particularly wear-resistant and have a high value factor. Processing takes place either in a purity of 600 with 60% platinum or in a purity of 950 with 95% platinum. In the former, the platinum is alloyed with palladium, copper and zinc. Platinum 600 is slightly lighter due to its alloy with other metals - Platinum 950, on the other hand, is a bit heavier. Both alloys are very comfortable to wear.


Palladium is a precious metal which systematically belongs to the platinum group. Palladium is often used as an alternative to the more expensive platinum, because it is just as beautiful and elegant, but not so expensive. Both metals are particularly wear-resistant and this is a reason for many couples not to opt for gold or silver, for example, but instead for a pair of rings made of platinum or palladium. A wedding ring made of palladium is a little lighter than platinum, is lighter, cheaper in price and takes on a high shine when polished.


Silver is one of the precious metals as well as the other materials described so far. However, this material has a slightly higher level of abrasion than platinum or palladium. Silver rings have a very nice shine, but can react and tarnish with the surrounding air or certain liquids. Our silver rings are therefore rhodium-plated, which means that they are coated with a layer of rhodium and are thus temporarily protected against tarnishing. However, due to its properties, the material is not as valuable - but therefore also not as price-intensive and therefore an excellent alternative, especially for the small budget. Rings made of silver are particularly popular as friendship rings and partner rings. At Mytrauringstore you will only find silver with the alloy 925.

stainless steel

Wedding rings made of stainless steel have a special degree of hardness and purity. They are an inexpensive alternative to other wedding rings made from the well-known precious metals. Stainless steel rings are only made from stainless steel.


Titanium wedding rings are a very popular metal these days. They have a grayish hue, are very robust and durable, particularly light and are extremely skin-friendly. Therefore, they are especially suitable for allergy sufferers. Are you allergic? Take a look at our information and recommendations for allergy sufferers.


Carbon is a high-tech material, which is characterized by excellent stability and rigidity. In the jewelry segment, carbon is a very new, but extremely popular material. The material gives you a warm feel, it is very light, shows hardly any signs of wear and tear and is very durable. In a carbon ring, diamonds also come into their own. Carbon is made by gluing individual carbon fibers with the help of epoxy resin. Browse through our website and find your carbon wedding rings!

Tungsten / Wolfram

Wedding rings made of tungsten (or tungsten) are very hard due to the material properties and therefore extremely scratch-resistant. They therefore have a very long service life and at relatively low prices. But such a wedding ring is rather heavy and therefore not recommended, especially for petite people. A tungsten ring can also break if it falls. For these reasons, we recommend a titanium wedding ring, which is more comfortable to wear.


Ceramic, like tungsten, can be described as scratch-resistant. Ceramic rings have a very high resistance and are very suitable for allergy sufferers: They are also a good choice for those who are looking for an alternative to a metal ring. Ceramic rings can be designed in many ways and in different colors. Combinations in processing with metal are also possible. Unfortunately, like tungsten, the material itself can break, but it can be purchased very cheaply.


Polishing / gloss

If a surface is polished or shiny, this means that your surroundings are always reflected in the surface of the ring. It is a very popular and classic way of finishing wedding rings.

Longitudinal matting

While a polished surface is shiny, roughening the material causes the surface to become matt. A longitudinal matting runs along the ring and results in long, infinite lines. It brings out the shape of a ring particularly clearly.

Transverse matting

A transverse matting runs perpendicular to the ring shape and results in many short lines. This form of matting makes the ring appear more voluminous, while longitudinal matting makes it appear slimmer.

Inclined matting

The alignment of an inclined matting runs at an angle of 45 ° to the ring shape. This suggests a spiral pattern.

Sand matting

A sand-matted surface denotes a strong matt, which is achieved by the sandblasting blower. The rings are exposed to the jet of fine-grain sand until a matt surface has been created. The surface is evenly matt and there is no visible line direction.

Ice matting

An ice matting is evident from the fact that the surface was scratched in an unstructured manner. The scratching takes place in the same way as with longitudinal or transverse matting, but with short strokes in different directions. This creates a unique pattern, which is modeled on the traces of ice traveled on. Ice-frosted wedding rings therefore have a very special charm.

Hammer blow

A surface that has been processed by hammering is characterized by the fact that it has a very special appearance. Due to its coarse-grained processing, the surface is popular with customers who are looking for the extraordinary. With these wedding rings, many small round indentations are knocked into the ring with the rounded surface of a chasing hammer.

Mokume Gane

Gane is the Japanese term for metal, Mokume the term for wood grain. In combination, the terms denote an old Japanese art of blacksmithing, which was previously used in the manufacture of sword handles or sword ends. The surface of the ring should reflect the wood grain. Mokume Gane is a mixture of different precious metal layers that are welded together without a joint. The unique Mokume-Gane look impresses with its powerful and lively look.

Stone trimmings


Gemstones are very popular, especially the diamond. It is the hardest gemstone and therefore offers good polishability, a wonderful shine and a unique refraction of light. Diamonds are measured in carats. Basically, the bigger the diamond, the greater its rarity. The carat number is usually between 0.01 and 1.00. The higher the number, the bigger the diamond. More on this.


A brilliant is a diamond with a certain cut, namely a symmetrical round cut. A diamond can be called a brilliant if it has 56 facets. The brilliant cut is the ideal of a diamond and is given by its high brilliance ultimately also his name - "brilliant".

Colored stones

The known colored stones include z. B. the sapphire and the ruby. These have an incomparable color and are therefore a very special eye-catcher on every piece of jewelry. Unlike a diamond, they are not classified based on their weight, but based on their dimensions. Because of their color they are unique and also of high value, but the diamond is still a bit higher.


A zirconia is an artificially produced diamond imitation, which at first glance looks very similar to a diamond. It is a worthwhile alternative, especially for those on a small budget, because a zirconia is relatively inexpensive compared to a diamond.

Channel socket

With this type of setting, a piece of material is removed from the surface of the ring in the form of a small channel and the stones are incorporated directly next to each other.

Rubbed in stones

The stone creates its own place in the ring by rubbing it in and removes the material during the process.
