What is Tungsten:

  • Tungsten rings are composed of a metal alloy, tungsten carbide. The alloy allows for maximum hardness and rigidity without sacrificing tensile strength. Each tungsten carbide ring is cut and polished with diamond tools.
  • Tungsten is extremely hard and dense. Combined with carbon and other elements, it becomes tungsten carbide, which registers between 8.9 - 9.1 on the Mohs hardness scale. It's roughly 10 times harder than 18k gold and four times harder than titanium and is equal to a natural sapphires hardness.

  • Tungsten carbide hardness has an assuring long lasting beauty. Permanently polished tungsten rings take a brilliant high polish and resist scratching longer than any metal ever offered to the public. Tungsten rings will never bend out of shape.
  • Tungsten jewelry is very hard and in comparison, titanium, a very hard metal, is about 6.5 on Moh's scale. Gold, silver, and platinum range from 2 to 4 on the scale. Sand ranks up there at 7 and your teeth, depending on your diet, range right around 4. The Mohs scale is more or less a "scratch test" so you can see why Tungsten is such a durable ring. Have some fun with them by trying to scratch them with a metal file. Titanium ring manufacturing companies routinely cut out their titanium rings using tungsten carbide cutting tools. There are just no rings that can compete with tungsten's durability.
  • Tungsten does not gain its extreme hardness until it is combined with a carbon alloy, transferring it into tungsten carbide (WC). Tungsten carbide is virtually indestructible, and has been widely used for decades in industrial applications such as cutting tools, mining machinery, and rocket engine nozzles.
  • Tungsten rings are rich in color, lustrous shine, and sleek new designs. Black tungsten is the hottest new look in tungsten wedding bands and is proving to be a popular choice for brides and grooms wanting wedding bands that express their individuality.

Not all tungsten rings are the same. Please be aware that not all ring manufactures use the same grade of tungsten. Some use a lesser quality tungsten grade that is more susceptible to scratches. Be sure to purchase from a reputable company. There is no cobalt in our tungsten jewelry.
