I have a man's wedding band (from a wedding long ago) that I want to give to a friend who is getting married. The ring is gold with a center band of a silver color, but I don't know what the material is.
In fact, the silver band is quite hard to distinguish so it looks like a simple gold ring until you look closely. My vague recollection is that the band is made of white gold, but I really can't remember. Is this something that a jeweler could determine quickly? Is it expensive to test?
The reason we want to know is that this friend does physical work and it's important that in an emergency it would be possible to cut the ring off. He's worried that if it's titanium it could be hard to cut off.
