Many people also purchase tungsten rings so they can use them when they travel. If a couple has very expensive wedding rings and they want to wear a pair of rings, but not bring the expensive rings on a trip, they can always use a pair of tungsten rings as a replacement. This way, you will not have to worry about losing a ring (not a great thing, but at least your not losing a $9,000 band). Also, when you travel, many of us are doing things that we wouldn't normally do, skiing, parasailing, etc... this way, you will not have to worry about damaging a tungsten ring.
We hope helps you in your purchase of a tungsten ring or any other wedding band you may decide on.
