Tungsten is becoming an increasingly popular choice for men’s rings, whether that is for a wedding band, or a statement ring. In this article, we will look at the pro’s and con’s of tungsten carbide. 

Tungsten is the strongest of the the metals when it comes to tensile strength. It is 5 times harder than steel, and 3 times harder than titanium – both already super strong metals! 

Tungsten is unmatched when it comes to durability and strength. If you are a man who works with his hands or have a busy and active lifestyle, tungsten will stand the test of time. It will only break under extreme pressure, and will not bend or become out of shape.

Not only that, tungsten is extremely resistant to scratches. Only a material harder than itself can cause scratches. Since only diamond is harder than tungsten, diamond is the only material that might scratch your ring. 

Tungsten rings for men come in many unique designs and a range of colours including silver, black, rose gold, gold, brown, and blue. Many of the men’s tungsten rings also have an inlay of another material such as wood, abalone shell, or antler bone. 

Tungsten rings are affordable compared to rings made with precious metals such as gold, platiunum , and silver. They are excellent value for money. 

Tungsten rings cannot be resized so be sure to make sure you order your ring in the correct size. At Newman Bands, you can order a ring sizer for free.
