What is Tantalum?
This alternate metal is an incredibly popular choice for men’s wedding bands. Tough, durable and affordable tantalum is mined from locations such as Australia and South America. With a gorgeous slate blue tone, this malleable metal had similar properties to platinum. Tantalum is hypo-allogenic and resistant to breakage, which makes it a perfect choice for a wedding band.
The name tantalum comes from Greek mythology, where perfect fruit was grown just tantalizingly out of reach. Lucky for us, this precious metal is widely available. And it might just be the wedding band you have been looking for.
