There are pros and cons for each one of these two metals, and although they are two of the most less traditional metals, they are becoming popular in men's rings today for several reasons. Let's start by looking at the pros for both metals. Ceramic rings have a glossy finish to them and a beautiful color which usually is black. Steel, on the other hand, usually comes in rockerring collection white color like the color of men's silver rings. Both metals are very durable and comfortable to wear.

Ceramic is also lighter in weight compared to steel. It is also scratch resistant, although they will crack if struck at high impact even though the material is hard and durable. Steel, on the other hand, scratches very easily. This could be why the price difference between the two is great. It is important to consider durability when buying men's rings because if the ring is going to be a wedding band, then you would want the band to last you for a long time especially if the man is involved in high physical activity. Nevertheless, both steel and ceramic are hypoallergenic materials.

Although most ceramic rings are used mostly for fashion, they can be used as wedding bands too. Steel rings, on the other hand, can be used as wedding bands because they mostly come in a white color, which is a very popular color in today's men's rings. A steel ring compared to a men's gold ring, is less expensive as well, and can have just as much luster if not more than a men's gold ring in white color. The price difference between a steel ring and a ceramic ring is quite great. Ceramic rings cost more than steel rings and as mentioned earlier, probably because ceramic is a stronger and more scratch resistant material than steel.

Men's rings made in both materials are great, but if you want a ring that will last you longer then consider a ring made out of ceramic. If your budget doesn't permit you to spend a lot on a men's ring, then consider steel since it is very affordable, durable enough, and very pleasing to the eye when it comes to luster and shine compared to ceramic rings.
