Tungsten rings are made from a unique process in which Tungsten and Carbide powder are forged together, creating a nearly indestructible ring. Men especially love tungsten rings, although women are learning to embrace them as well for their sleek look, durability and low maintenance traits. Tungsten rings truly offer the perfect combination of strength, style and comfort and becomes a unique diamond rings.

Looks aside, Tungsten rings are not only exotic, but they are really the only metal that can be permanently polished. Unlike gold, platinum, silver, and even titanium rings, Tungsten carbide holds the brilliance and shine, looking freshly polished for years. Slightly heavier than other metals, tungsten rings provide a feeling of substance. A true tungsten carbide ring is skillfully polished using diamond polishing tools and wheels, which creates a permanent luster and polish that is not seen with other metals. Many couples find comfort in the symbolism of tungsten rings, likening the solid, beautiful brilliance to that of their commitment to one another. Nothing expresses an everlasting bond like tungsten rings. Holding claim to the most wear resistant rings available, tungsten rings are 10 times harder than 18k Gold and 5 times harder than steel. Using the Mohs hardness scale (1-10); tungsten measures between 8 and 9 just below Diamonds, which represent the hardest coming in at 10.

There are many tungsten rings available today from a variety of designers and retailers. When making your selection, you should be aware of the quality. Like any trade, there are those retailers that will try to pass off low quality imitations as quality products. Many retailers claim to have quality tungsten rings, but you must make sure that you are getting true tungsten carbide rings. You make ask yourself, “what’s the difference between tungsten rings and tungsten carbide rings?” Even though the names are often used interchangeably, you want to make sure that the ring you are selecting is tungsten carbide. Tungsten Rings, that don’t have carbide, tungsten only rings, is really nothing more than a steel ring. It is still hard, but it’s the carbide that makes the ring scratch proof. A true tungsten carbide ring, can only be scratched by a diamond or a product containing the mineral corundum. An easy way to tell, is if a ring has carved details, it is not a tungsten carbide ring. Another area of concern is tungsten rings containing cobalt. Cobalt can develop oxidation spots that cannot be removed or polished out and the ring can even cause a negative reaction with your skin.

One of the best ways to ensure you are getting the best ring at the best price is to go with a reputable retailer. Take a look at the customer testimonials, the amount of information, resources and inventory of quality products that are made available. Nothing is more reassuring to me, than information, service and knowing that customer service extends beyond an easily navigatable website. Still, some people are leery when it comes to online shopping, but there really are a number of benefits to online shopping. Once you find a site that has excellent customer service and top quality products, you really are getting the best of both worlds. By reducing the overhead associated with offline stores, you benefit from the reduced expenses which are often passed along to the consumer in greater savings. These unique wedding rings epitomize today’s man and tungsten rings can be enjoyed and cherished forever.
