Tungsten wedding rings have become an attractive alternative metal for men and women searching for durable, contemporary looking and affordable wedding rings. Unlike Titanium, which is arguably the second most popular alternative metal wedding ring, Tungsten feels heavier on the hand for a feeling more like traditional gold ring. Yet these wedding bands are extremely hard wearing.
There are four reasons why couples choose tungsten wedding rings. First, tungsten rings are scratch resistant. This doesn’t mean that they cannot be scratched. It simply means that these rings are very difficult to scratch and if your ring is exposed to elements on a daily basis that could scratch it, the ring will not show signs of scratching for a very long time. These are the ultimate wedding rings when it comes to being able to take abuse on a daily basis.
The second reason is that current tungsten rings, and in particular, white tungsten rings, have a very high polished shine. These rings have the look of white gold and platinum at a fraction of the price. In fact, you will find that a new white tungsten wedding ring has a much higher shine than a brand new white gold or platinum wedding ring and will hold its high polish far longer than white gold and platinum.
The third reason is the ring’s affordability. With tungsten rings starting at just $100, couples can really afford the style and elegance that they’ve wanted for their big day and beyond. Even at the high end of the price spectrum, these rings can be purchased below $300 each. A similar version in 14K white gold could sell for close to $1,000 and in platinum, or 18K gold, the price could exceed $2,000.
The fourth reason is a bit controversial. Tungsten rings have been touted by some as “unbreakable” and indestructible. While these rings can take a massive amount of abuse, and never show any signs of wear and tear, the odd thing is that if one of these rings either drops to the floor and hits just the right fracture point, or is struck at just the right points, these rings can crack. However, keep in mind the following. Even though you can find videos showing how tungsten rings can be cracked, in many of these videos, people have done extreme things like throwing these with all their force on concrete. As you’re most likely never going to do any of these things, the likelihood of your ring cracking is quite small.
