Why Tungsten Carbide?
Tungsten is the only rare and exotic metal that can be permanently polished. The polish and finish can last as long as your commitment to each other - forever!
If you see scratches on your tungsten ring, we will replace or re-polish it immediately, free of charge. If your finger size ever changes and you need a new ring size, we will replace it under our sizing for life policy.
With gold, platinum and even titanium rings, you will notice varying degrees of scratching, denting and surface mars. However, with tungsten rings, the surface will maintain it's original beautiful shiny finish.
Many people also enjoy the heavy weight of a tungsten ring. The enduring polish of a tungsten ring together with the solid weight, speak of commitment, security and an everlasting bond.

Hard Facts About Tungsten Carbide Rings:
Tungsten rings are the most wear resistant rings available on the planet.
Tungsten is about 10 times harder than 18K Gold, 5 times harder than tool steel, and 4 times harder than titanium.
Tungsten measures between 8 and 9 on the Mohs hardness scale. (Diamonds are a 10 - the highest.)
Due to their extreme hardness, Tungsten Rings will hold their shape and shine longer than any ring on the market.
Tungsten rings have been referred to as the "Permanently Polished Rings".
Tungsten rings will NOT bend.
In the event of an emergency, a ring can be removed by a medical professional.
Each tungsten ring is individually hand crafted using assorted diamond abrasives and poly crystalline diamond tooling.
Our tungsten rings are cobalt free.
The Manufacturing Process
Tungsten with carbon and other elements are ground into a powder and then compressed with high pressure dies to form a ring blank.
The blank is then fired in an oxygen free furnace at an astounding 6,200 degrees Fahrenheit. This process called sintering creates the hardest metal used for making jewelry.
The ring is then cut and shaped using diamond tools with approximately 30 steps required for completion. The cutting and shaping of a tungsten ring is similar in many ways to the cutting and polishing of a rough diamond.
Tungsten rings inlay with gold, silver, platinum are created by grinding a channel in the center of the ring and precisely "swedging" the metal into the channel under extreme pressure.
The ring is then skillfully polished with diamond polishing tools and wheels creating a permanent luster and polish not possible with other metals.
A Tungsten Carbide ring will remain polished forever, and is scratch resistant. It is a unique metal that epitomizes today's man more than any other.
What's the difference between Tungsten Rings and Tungsten Carbide Rings?
Some of our competitors sell Tungsten rings that do not include Carbide. (Some of the retailers still call them Tungsten Carbide however, so be careful.) A Tungsten only ring is basically a steel ring. It is very hard, but NOT scratch proof.
A Tungsten Carbide ring can only be scratched by a diamond or a product containing the mineral corundum.
If you are shopping for a tungsten ring, or men's wedding band, you are better off with one of our Tungsten Carbide Rings and it's lifetime warranty.
