Yes, titanium can be a little soft, and will scratch over time, but so will other metals, especially precious metals. My original wedding ring had the exact same design, but my wife paid $80 for it at a local jewelry store. When I lost it a few years into our marriage, I simply bought a new one here on Overstock for less than half the price of the original ring. This ring is comfortable, VERY light, and nice looking. I've lost my wedding ring a few times now, and I keep on replacing it with the same design.
