The Pros & Cons of Black Wedding Bands

Black wedding bands are the new fad these days for men. There's something about the unique look and feel of black rings that attracts people to this new ring metal. If nothing else, people are just curious about what this metal is all about. Most men still opt for wedding bands made out of traditional metals, like gold or platinum, but black wedding bands have people straying from traditional a bit. 

So what is this metal really about and why has it only recently become popular? Well, as much as we also love the look of black wedding rings, there are some major drawbacks.
