If you are looking for a traditional men’s gold ring but are worried about it getting scratched, or becoming bent out of shape, a gold tungsten ring is the perfect solution. Our gold tungsten rings are here for the classic yet practical man!
Ranging from more traditional gold rings to contemporary designs of men’s rings.
In this article we look at why a gold tungsten ring may be the right choice for you.
The Advantages of Tungsten Carbide Rings for Men
Practical men who work with their hands know that gold rings can easily scratch and become bent out of shape. If you want a ring that you can keep wearing while you work – or while you are busy playing hard, a tungsten ring is the one for you.
Tungsten rings are phenomenally strong, durable, and hardwearing. Your tungsten ring will last a lifetime and will still look as good as new. It will not bend, or lose its’ shape in anyway.
And not only that, your tungsten carbide ring also has superb scratch resistance. A metal can only get scratched by another material that is harder than itself. Tungsten is one of the hardest materials on this earth – and is only surpassed by diamond! This means that providing you keep away from diamonds, your tungsten ring will not get scratched.
Another advantage of tungsten is that it is offers excellent value for money, especially compared to precious metals such as gold, and platinum.
Tungsten rings for men are available in a wide range of unique styles, including a wide range in gold. Some are based on traditional gold rings giving you the appeal of a men’s gold ring, but with the strength and robustness of tungsten. Others are more contemporary, incorporating other colours such as silver, and black. They are all there for the taking!
A tungsten ring feels substantial and strong, giving a sense of manly importance. Some men love this – but if you prefer a lighter ring, a gold titanium ring is definitely worth considering.
- Strong, Robust, and Hardwearing. A tungsten ring is one that will last a lifetime and is designed to be worn everyday – no matter what you are doing!
- Remarkable Scratch Resistance
- Excellent Value for Money
- Substantial and Almighty
- Wide Variety and Styles of Men’s Gold Tungsten Rings.
Drawbacks of Tungsten Carbide
Tungsten is most certainly a metal with superpowers and it is difficult to pick out disadvantages.
The first potential drawback is a matter of personal taste. Some men love this about tungsten rings – while other men may be put off. A tungsten ring is undoubtedly weighty. You will know that you are wearing your ring. This is of course, something you will get used to very quickly but it is worth noting that tungsten is a heavy metal. When you put your tungsten ring on, it somehow feels important and almighty.
If you prefer a lighter metal for your ring, you may want to consider titanium.
A tungsten ring cannot be re-sized. This means that if you were to need a larger or smaller ring, you would need to replace a tungsten ring, rather than have it resized. The value of tungsten rings means that this is realistic – but of course sentimentally, this would be a drawback.
Be sure to measure your ring finger before ordering your gold tungsten ring. Newman Bands will provide you with a free ring sizer if you do not know your size.
And if you find that when you try the ring on, it is still either too loose, or too tight, returns are free.
- Tungsten Rings are Weighty
- Tungsten Rings Cannot be Resized
What is Tungsten Carbide?
Whereas precious metals such as gold, silver, and platinum, are mined for their beauty, lustre, and value, tungsten is mined for its extreme strength and robustness.
Even the name tungsten describes the sheer almighty strength of tungsten carbide. Tungsten derives from the Swedish words “tung sten” which essentially means heavy stone. And this name describes the very essence of tungsten perfectly!
Tungsten is weighty and strong, much harder than steel, and more resistant to breaking than diamond. Tungsten is approximately 10 times harder than 18 carat gold.
In its natural form, tungsten is a grey powder. The powder is compressed and then formed into shape. It is found naturally on earth when combined in chemical compounds. Tungsten is used in many industries thanks to its wondrous properties. Uses include tools, machinery, and jewellery and it is used in industry, construction, military, electrical, and commercial sectors. It is used in surgical tools, ballpoint pens, skis, farriery, ammunition, and all kinds of tools.
And of course, jewellery, where it is used for rings, watches, pendants, and bracelets.
- Tungsten has unparalleled strength, durability, and robustness.
- Tungsten is more affordable than other precious metals such as gold, platinum, and silver.
