Why Opt for Our Tungsten Carbide Ring

Men’s Tungsten Rings are more readily available than Women Tungsten Rings, therefore the styles are usually wider than Women’s Wedding Rings. Black Tunsten Wedding Rings are a great choice for men and comes in a variety of customizable styles. It offers a unique, sleek and stylish look as well as being more durable than other precious metals, such as Gold. Black Tungsten provides a wonderful stylish versatility for men and even women.

Tungsten Rings for Women are permanently polished and highly durable. Due to Tungsten’s extreme durability and hardness, which is four times harder than Titanium, Tungsten Rings will hold their shape and shine much longer than any ring on the market. Tungsten measures between 8 and 9 on the Moh’s hardness scale (10 being the highest, which is diamond). Tungsten Men’s Rings will not bend; therefore, Men’s Tungsten Wedding Bands are perfect for those who are involved in physical and hand straining activities that may scratch or damage softer metals. Even though the Tungsten is incredibly durable, it still may be best to remove the ring when engaging in heavy physical activities that could involve the ring being hit, such as carpentry.

Tungsten rings are much heavier then rings composed of titanium alloy. Titanium is 43% lighter then stainless steel, and tungsten carbide is 90% heavier. When you put a tungsten ring on you will be able to feel the quality, titanium is deceptively light. Ductility is similar to malleability in that it defines a metals ability to bend and stretch under pressure without fracturing. The higher the ductility the more easily a metal will bend or break. Titanium is a more ductile metal than tungsten carbide. In other words, when a ring is under pressure, such as being hit by a door, a titanium ring would be bend whereas a tungsten ring would fracture if it incurred any damage at all.

The hardness of tungsten can not be beat. Industrial tools are often formed of tungsten carbide as they will outlast stainless steel tools. The combination of tungsten with a nickel binder provides protection to your skin as well as the ring. Often body oils, perspiration, and household chemicals will damage rings and wedding bands. With a tungsten ring you never need to worry about the damage, as they will stand the test of time. The incredible hardness of tungsten carbide also means that your ring will not scratch or fade from daily use and wear. That wonderful finish, whether brushed or polished, is there for the long run.

If you are looking to add another step of personalization to your ring custom engraving is always an option. Who would have thought that pairing a tungsten carbide foundation with space age material such as carbon fiber would create such a unique in demand look. These rings have it all, a cutting edge style, world class design, and unsurpassed durability.
