non-conductive metal used to make mens rings?

August 15, 2009

My fiance is an electrician and I heard that there is a metal that is being used to make wedding rings that will not conduct an electrical current. Do you know the name of the metal? and where I can buy a ring made from it?

It would have to be plastic, wooden or ceramic. All metals conduct electricity to varying degrees – it’s one of the things that defines a metal. You might be able to get a non-conducting coating for it, but if it got scratched, it wouldn’t help, anyway. He really will need to take it off when he works.

All metals are good conductors by definition of a metal.

He may be thinking of a ceramic ring, that is made to look like gold.

ALL metal conducts electricity. That’s part of the definition of what makes it ‘metal’.
