What are cobalt chrome rings

There are a lot of new types of metals used for jewelry. The newest being cobalt chrome rings. These rings have become very popular for a number of reasons. The main reason is the way they are scratch resistant. This appeals to many people. A lot of people switched from platinum to dome palladium rings when the price of metals shot through the roof. Then they found that the palladium rings were pretty much just like platinum, as far as how they held up. They would still scratch. So after dropping a couple grand on a wedding band it was so scratched up six months later.

A lot of people had heard about the cheap tungsten rings that most jewelers were selling. Cheap meaning the price and not the quality of the rings. The only problem was that the tungsten rings were significantly darker than white gold or platinum. This made the pictures of the hands together at weddings look a little funny. Unless trying to be funny no one wants to be funny. So that brought the need for cobalt chrome rings. Chrome was discovered a long time ago but in the last decade had no use in the jewelry industry.
