DURABILITY:

Soft: The carat of the Gold plays a big part in the durability of the ring. 9ct Gold is stronger and more durable while 18ct Gold softer and more maluable than other metals.

Expensive: Gold is considered a precious metal and therefore is costly. Many currencies are closely connected to the Gold price and it's often used as an investment tool. While Gold wedding bands are a popular choice, you cannot do away with the higher price.
