Tungsten jewelry has become very popular in recent times. Most folks would probably have a question of what are the pros and disadvantages of tungsten carbide rings. Hence I would like to share with the readers with this article the good and cons of tungsten wedding bands or rings.

1. Pros of Tungsten Ring

There are numerous benefits of a tungsten ring compared to other similar metals such as titanium or gold. They include stronger and more robust elements, lower needs of care and sleek chic characteristics. Tungsten rings are well known for their strong physical characteristics as they have a robustness secondary only to diamond itself. Thus, making them extremely strong and scratch resistant. In other words, they are harder and more durable than steel, gold, titanium and platinum. Hence, they do not require much maintenance as other jewelry of similar type and do no get the wear and tear from daily activities that other rings do. The luster will stay as brilliant as the day you got them from the store.

These tungsten pieces are also resistant against physical and chemical attacks that would otherwise destroy lesser materials. They would have nearly zero dents and scratches over the life of the jewelry. This translates to the fact that these rings would last way longer and allows us to appreciate the rings over a lifetime.

Men today choose tungsten over other jewelry grade metals because of the durability and toughness of the tungsten rings which fits very well with their daily activities. They can rest assured that these wedding bands would survive the daily torture throughout its lifetime. On the other side, many couples would choose tungsten rings to represent their wedding due to the durability element, much like their marriage should be.

2. Cons of Tungsten Ring

The main disadvantage of the tungsten wedding ring is that it is extremely difficult to be re-sized. This is due to the hardness and properties of the metal itself. Many jewelers would normally replace the tungsten ring with another size should our finger grow or shrink. Thus, it's very important to know your exact finger measure before deciding on the purchase.
