What is Tungsten Carbide & Characteristics of Tungsten Carbide Rings



Tungsten carbide rings are an elegant and modern alternative to classic rings, but what exactly is tungsten carbide? And more importantly, is tungsten the right choice for your wedding ring? Here will break down the pros and cons of this type of metal and see if it is the right material for your wedding band.tungsten wedding women rings

So What Exactly Is Tungsten Carbide?
Also known as wolfram, tungsten was discovered in 1781. This somewhat rare chemical element has incredible properties, including having the highest melting point among all metals as well as the highest tensile strength. Tungsten is also incredibly durable.

Since tungsten is too challenging to work with in its pure form, tungsten wedding bands are made of a tungsten carbide compound. Tungsten carbide features tungsten and carbon atoms in equal numbers. The resulting fine powder is combined with a nickel or a cobalt binder. The compound is then ready to use for the manufacturing of products like blades, cutting tools, and wedding bands.

Even though its easier to work with, tungsten carbide also retains many of the advantages and features of pure tungsten. These include the high tensile strength and the high melting point. As a result, tungsten wedding bands are incredibly resistant to scratching. Their light gray surface withstands just about anything, but these tungsten carbide rings are also suitable for a wide range of brushing or plating finishes.

Tungsten wedding bands have moderate electrical and heat conductivity properties. Those who work in environments where electricity or heat may pose a safety risk should remove their tungsten wedding rings while working. Alternatively, black ceramic wedding bands offer a good alternative to black tungsten rings.Contrary to a common myth, tungsten carbide rings can be easily removed in the case of an emergency using standard jewelry removal tools.Tungsten wedding bands are also heavier than titanium and 14k gold.

Are Tungsten Carbide Rings Brittle?
Over the past couple of years, there have been questions about tungstens durability and how brittle tungsten wedding bands really are. Before you decide to buy tungsten wedding bands, you should know more about what exactly is tungsten carbide and if its long-lasting.

Tungsten carbide is incredibly durable. Its more durable than silver and gold, as well as platinum or titanium, and it also has a highly scratch-resistant surface. But tungsten does have brittle properties. Under the right amount of pressure, tungsten wedding bands will crack and then break, unlike gold which bends on impact.

How brittle tungsten wedding rings really are? When made with a high-quality tungsten carbide compound, tungsten rings will break only under extreme pressure. This actually makes tungsten carbide rings a preferred choice for some people who work with heavy machinery.

More Pros and Cons
If you want to go with tungsten wedding bands, you should know the pros and cons of tungsten rings in more depth.

Extremely durable and scratch-resistant, tungsten carbide wedding bands are tougher and more long-lasting than traditional metal rings. One advantage of tungsten rings is their laser engraving suitability, which offers customization possibilities. Tungsten wedding bands also come in a range of styles, finishes, and colors.

Even high-end tungsten rings and designer tungsten jewelry have a lower price compared to gold or platinum rings. Slightly cheaper alternatives include titanium, stainless steel, or ceramic wedding bands.

Apart from being scratch-resistant, tungsten wedding bands are also resistant to tarnish, patina, and corrosion. This means that non-colored tungsten rings dont require re-plating over the years.

The main disadvantage of tungsten carbide rings is that you cannot resize them. Its something to keep in mind for those who are looking for a re-sizable modern ring.

The most scratch-resistant version of tungsten wedding bands, silver gray tungsten carbide rings are available in a somewhat limited range of designs. Although mens tungsten rings are more varied in style compared to womens tungsten rings, the designs are often limited to simple contemporary styles. Black finishes along with gold and rose gold plating offer more style options for tungsten wedding bands.
