FAQs about Men's Tungsten Wedding Bands
Tungsten rings will never scratch or bend, but they also cannot be resized. The durability of tungsten wedding bands make them an attractive choice for everyday wear, however, the fact that they cannot be resized should be taken into consideration. If you're purchasing a tungsten ring, be sure to know your accurate ring size, and, if possible, try on your ring beforehand.
Tungsten refers to the individual chemical element, while tungsten carbide refers to the metal alloy of tungsten used in wedding bands. Within the jewellery world, the two terms are often interchanged, with both tungsten and tungsten carbide rings referring to the same versatile pieces.
When it comes to jewellery, tungsten is a better choice than titanium. Tungsten is rated 8.5-9 on the Mohs hardness scale, which makes it an excellent choice for daily wear. Titanium, on the other hand, is only a 6, which is not nearly as durable.
Tungsten is the most scratch-resistant metal of all, which makes it an excellent choice for wedding bands. Neither tungsten nor gold can be used in their pure form to make jewellery, but both are excellent choices when made into an alloy with different metals. One is not explicitly better than the other, but if you have a lot of intensive hands-on tasks, the more durable tungsten may be a better fit for you.
