Here's what I gathered:

Gold is fine but compared to newer metals is expensive and higher maintenance.
Tungsten is out because it's heavy and the possibility of shattering.
Titanium is a little lighter weight than Cobalt.
Cobalt is a little brighter color and can be polished up more.

So you'd end up with a ring that looks like platinum, is scratch resistant and never needs re-plating, and is cheaper than traditional rings.
