Product introduction

Tungsten carbide, is called as tungsten gold, it has a particular character which other material cannot compare with it. The features of it is high hardness and polished, never abrade and fade. Its hardness can reach Mors 8.9-9.1, 10 times as that of 18K gold, 4 times as titanium and equal to natural sapphire, and it glitters nearly originally, charming and joyful.

Imagine wearing a ring that is permanently polished - ALWAYS looking new!
Discover the amazing look and durability of tungsten rings and wedding bands. In an extraordinary process, Tungsten and Carbide powders are forged together at 2,400 degrees Fahrenheit to form rings that are virtually indestructible and scratch proof. Then they are polished with a diamond compound, resulting in a polish and shine that will last forever. Tungsten is the perfect combination of unbelievable strength with style and comfort.

Why Tungsten Carbide?
Tungsten is the only rare and exotic metal that can be permanently polished. The polish and finish can last as long as your commitment to each other - 30, 40 or even 50 years!
With gold, platinum and even titanium rings, you will notice varying degrees of scratching, denting and surface mars. However, with tungsten rings, the surface will maintain it's original beautiful shiny finish.
Many people also enjoy the heavy weight of a tungsten ring. The enduring polish of a tungsten ring together with the solid weight, speak of commitment, security and an everlasting bond.

Hard Facts About Tungsten Carbide Rings:
* Tungsten Rings are the most wear resistant rings available on the planet.
* Tungsten is hard, very hard. It ranges from 8 to 9 on the Mohs scale. By way of comparison, Titanium, a very hard metal, is about 6.5. Gold, Silver, and Platinum range from 2 to 4 on the scale. Sand ranks up there at 7 and your teeth, depending on your diet, range right around 4. The Mohs scale is more or less a “scratch test” so you can see why Tungsten is such a durable ring. Have some fun with them by trying to scratch them with a metal file. Titanium ring manufacturing companies routinely cut out their titanium rings using tungsten carbide cutting tools. There are just no rings that can compete with tungsten’s durability.
* Due to their extreme hardness, Tungsten Rings will hold their shape and shine longer than any ring on the market.
* Tungsten rings have been referred to as the "Permanently Polished Rings".
* Tungsten rings will NOT bend.
* Each Tungsten ring is individually hand crafted using assorted diamond abrasives and poly crystalline diamond tooling.
* Our Tungsten rings are cobalt free.

The Manufacturing Process
Tungsten with carbon and other elements are ground into a powder and then compressed with high pressure dies to form a ring blank.
The blank is then fired in an oxygen free furnace at an astounding 6,200 degrees Fahrenheit. This process called sintering creates the hardest metal used for making jewelry.
The ring is then cut and shaped using diamond tools with approximately 30 steps required for completion. The cutting and shaping of a tungsten ring is similar in many ways to the cutting and polishing of a rough diamond.
Tungsten rings inlaid with gold, silver, platinum or mokume gane are created by grinding a channel in the center of the ring and precisely "swedging" the metal into the channel under extreme pressure.
The ring is then skillfully polished with diamond polishing tools and wheels creating a permanent luster and polish not possible with other metals.
A Tungsten Carbide ring will remain polished forever, and is scratch resistant. It is a unique metal that epitomizes today's man more than any other.

What's the difference between Tungsten Rings and Tungsten Carbide Rings?
Some of our competitors sell Tungsten rings that do not include Carbide. (Some of the retailers still call them Tungsten Carbide however, so be careful.) A Tungsten only ring is basically a steel ring. It is very hard, but NOT scratch proof.

A Tungsten Carbide ring can only be scratched by a diamond or a product containing the mineral corundum. If you see a Tungsten ring that has carved details this ring does not have Carbide - it is a tungsten only ring. Therefore, it will scratch. You are better off with one of our Tungsten Carbide rings and it's lifetime warranty.

Should I be concerned with Cobalt in my Ring?
Absolutely YES!
Many Tungsten and Tungsten Carbide rings have Cobalt in them. The alloy containing Cobalt is easier to procure and rings containing Cobalt are being commonly sold. However, rings containing Cobalt will develop a negative react to your skin. After a short time period the ring will develop oxidation spots that cannot be removed or polished out. This is due to the Cobalt reacting to the human body. You can easily prevent this from happening by purchasing one of our Cobalt free Tungsten Carbide rings.
