TUNGSTEN

TUNGSTEN

The hardness of tungsten carbide rings also makes them a safe option for an environment like a workshop. Whereas gold, platinum and silver rings will easily deform under pressure and possibly injure the finger they are on in case of an accident, a tungsten carbide ring will resist deformation till it shatters, keeping the finger safe until then.

Metals have always been prized for their weight, or more accurately, their density. Gold and tungsten are of similar density, and so the weight of both gold and tungsten rings gives a ‘solid’ feel when placed in the hand. Lead is considered a heavy material but tungsten is almost twice as dense.

If you have worn rings of other materials in the past, you know that they require upkeep and polishing to retain their shine and look. No such effort is required with a tungsten carbide ring – it will retain its polish permanently and look as good twenty tears down the track as it did on the day you first put it on.
