Tungsten Ring Information

Along with titanium, tungsten is one of the most popular contemporary choices for men’s rings and jewelry. The tungsten material used for jewelry is actually tungsten carbide, a mixture of the rare metal tungsten and a like number of carbon atoms. Tungsten carbide is incredibly hard, which also makes it extremely scratch-resistant. These weighty rings are very affordable and can be seen in their natural gunmetal grey color as well as in black tungsten and white tungsten, which offers a classic silvery hue that looks more like white gold or platinum.

What is Tungsten?

  • What is commonly referred to as tungsten in jewelry is actually tungsten carbide, a compound of the metal tungsten and carbon.

  • Tungsten carbide is one of the hardest materials in existence, measuring around a 9 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness (a diamond rates a 10).

  • Tungsten carbide’s hardness makes it very scratch-resistant, and tungsten carbide rings easily maintain their “just purchased” appearance with little to no maintenance.

  • Tungsten carbide rings have a distinctly weighty feel that offers an alternative to some of the more lightweight contemporary materials.

  • Tungsten carbide rings are not entirely crack-resistant, and can be cracked if struck against a hard enough surface. They can also break if hit against a hard surface or dropped on a hard surface.

  • Tungsten rings are not resizable due to their hardness, but are low enough in price that they can be inexpensively replaced.

  • Contrary to popular belief, tungsten carbide rings can be removed in case of emergency by cracking them with vise grip pliers or a similar tool.
