Gold has long been the most traditional choice for men's wedding bands, and as a result, offers many style options in rings. Gold can be polished to a shiny finish on an otherwise low-frills band, and it's a popular choice for rings you want to engrave. It's a relatively valuable precious metal but still affordable and is easily maintained, even on active hands. The only potential downside is that some skin is allergic to gold.
