What is Tungsten Carbide?
Tungsten is a very hard and dense metal, mined from Wolframite ore and symbolized by a (W) on the periodic table of elements. It melts at an extraordinary 6,100 degrees Fahrenheit–the highest melting point of all metals. On its own, tungsten is vulnerable to scratches and damage just like any other metal, such as titanium and steel. Tungsten does not gain its extreme hardness until it is combined with a carbon alloy, transferring it into tungsten carbide (WC) with a hardness between 8.5 and 9.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Tungsten carbide is four times harder than titanium, twice as hard as steel, is virtually unscratchable, and has been widely used for decades in industrial applications such as cutting tools, mining machinery, and rocket engine nozzles.
The unique formula of our tungsten carbide allows these rings to be both visually stunning and durable enough for every-day use. You are no longer required to constantly remove and replace your ring in order to protect its finish.
The color of tungsten carbide is a very appealing light gray, similar to the color of steel. It’s extremely bright and reflective when polished, and when a finish is applied to a tungsten carbide wedding band, the gray is more pronounced, allowing wonderful contrasts for traditional or contemporary designs. The subtle gray color is also an excellent backdrop for precious metal inlays like platinum, palladium, sterling silver, and gold.
All of our tungsten carbide wedding bands are comfort-fit style, providing optimal comfort while wearing the ring and when putting it on or removing it. Because our tungsten carbide wedding bands are engineered to be maintenance free, we offer a lifetime warranty.
