2 ▶ Reading Comprehension ☞ Choose the best answer based on the article. Tungsten Replaces Gold for Wedding Rings Skyrocketing gold prices and the economic downturn forcing Americans to tighten their belts, consumers shopping for jewelry have become more willing to consider cheaper alternatives like titanium, tungsten, cobalt and even stainless steel.
