King because it is the rarest and costliest. If everyone you knew was a King it wouldn’t be a big deal. So if you can afford to go with platinum it is a good choice. If you can’t afford platinum but are on more of a budget there are a lot of other option for your wedding band. In fact the alternative metal market is increasing every year. The most popular alternative metals are tungsten carbide wedding bands. They are virtually scratch resistant and are very affordable. So if you are looking for a wedding band you have many things to consider.
