There are a lot of unique and trendy rings out there on the market today and what do a lot of them have in common? That’s right! The fact that they’re made from Tungsten Carbide. Today we’re going to have a look at our favourites. There are 64 of them, so there’s bound to be a perfect one out there for you!
Firstly, let’s have a look at the details and nitty-gritty of this type of ring.
Tungsten Carbide: What is it exactly?
Tungsten Carbide is a metal that’s made from a chemical compound of an equal ratio of tungsten and carbon atoms. It is mostly found in powder form and is grey in colour with very fine particles. From this form, it is shaped and pressed into different designs such as jewellery or even cutting tools. When it has been pressed, it has twice the density of steel and also has twice the strength. You can see why rings made from this material are very much sought-after.
Comparison with Titanium
You might have heard a lot about titanium in jewellery as it is a common component. But how does it differ to Tungsten Carbide? Both are alternatives to the usual precious metals in jewellery like silver and gold. However, tungsten carbide is tough and is much harder than its titanium rival. Furthermore, it is more resistant to scratches, which is why it is such a popular choice with rings. Titanium, like tungsten carbide, is available in black and grey but the latter is also available in white and so can be coloured easily.
The Pros and the Cons
Firstly, Tungsten Carbide looks unique, but the fact that it is a hard metal means that it is also very brittle and can crack when hit against hard surfaces. Also linked with this fact is that tungsten carbide, therefore, cannot be resized, so you need to make sure you get the right size (and don't lose or gain weight if you want to wear it forever!).
It has a high tensile strength which means that it won’t scratch and its shine will stand the test of time too!
