Why Tungsten Ring?

If there is a ring you should buy in terms of features, affordable price and versatility, then it should be a tungsten ring. It is more affordable and remains permanently polished as compared to rings made from gold and platinum, which are some of the reasons it has become a popular wedding ring for couples getting married.

The affordable price and unique qualities of a tungsten ringhas also made it very popular and it is not just for marriage anymore. It is also used for engagement rings, anniversary rings, fraternity rings, commemorative event rings, and other special purposes or events.

There are two things you should consider before purchasing your ring. Ask the jeweler where you will purchase your tungsten ring if it utilizes a cobalt- binder alloy, which is known to react to human skin. The cobalt-binder could irritate or produce a rash on your skin, especially if you have sensitive skin. You should buy a ring that uses a nickel-binder alloy because nickel is hypoallergenic. It won't cause any irritations and other allergic reactions to your skin.


Another thing you should consider if you want to purchase a tungsten ring is to make sure it is made from the carbide compound. The carbide is the reason for the characteristics of extreme hardness and resistance to scratches possessed by tungsten carbide rings. Wedding rings that only have ordinary tungsten may be harder, but the rings are easier to crack and shatter, and are prone to scratches.

Although a tungsten ringis cheaper compared to other wedding rings, its price will mainly depend on the design of the ring. A ring with a basic design and solid color will be cheaper compared to a ring that has an elaborate design and has an inlay of precious stones or metals.
