The Incredible Durability of Tungsten and Other Characteristics

When you buy a wedding ring, you want it to last a long time.  The investment is usually for a lifetime.  A ring that is both durable and low-maintenance is an ideal wedding band for a gentleman.  Tungsten is a material that is well loved for having these qualities as well as a classy finish.  It allows you to wear your ring, no matter what you may be doing, whether you are tinkering with your car or on a trip doing business.  Most people will tell you that tungsten lasts longer than nickel, gold, silver and titanium.

Tungsten, or wolfram as it is also known, is a chemical component that has a very high melting point and high tensile strength.  Rings made from tungsten are actually made from tungsten carbide and not pure tungsten.  The pure form of this metal is very difficult to mold and has to be mixed with carbide to make it easier to work with. Even though the rings are not made from the pure form of the metal, they still retain most of the characteristics of the metal in its pure form.  These include the high tensile strength and the high melting point.

One of the key benefits of tungstenwedding bands is that they require very little maintenance and cleaning. The ring will last a long time and keep its luxurious polish to the end.  Because they come in several colors and styles, every man can find something that suits him.  Colors include black, a color that speaks of strength and poise.  You are also able to select a variety of finishes.  A polished finish will have your ring looking wonderfully shiny, and if there are any small scratches or blemishes, wiping it with a soft cloth will easily eliminate them.

Tungsten is a hard metal.  In fact, it is second in hardness only to diamonds.  As such, when it comes into contact with another metal, the other metal tends to embed into the tungsten.  By simply buffing away the irregularity, you will have your ring looking as good as new.  There are several benefits of buying tungsten rings. These include:
  • They are hypoallergenic and will not cause any irritation to the skin
  • They tend to keep their finish throughout
  • These rings speak of luxury and strength
  • Tungsten is a very durable and hard material that will not dull or scratch with use.  Diamonds are the only ones known to be harder
  • The shape of the ring will hold for a lifetime
  • They have a good weight, a little bit heavier than 14 karat gold, and strength, and are more dense than titanium or steel
When you are selecting a wedding ring for your man or a wedding set that will last for a lifetime, tungsten should definitely be a consideration.  Durability is key when purchasing a ring.  It is an investment that you want to last through the years and may be passed on to your children in the future.
