Tungsten is a hard metal that has high boiling and melting point. Tungsten carbide is a grey powder that is compressed and given any shape and size. Nowadays, tungsten rings and wedding bands are in demand.
This is because they don’t have any natural effect on the environment. Most metals and stones are carved out of Earth, and their increasing demand has made it scarce. However, Tungsten is an element that is rarely available in the earth’s crust.
Tungsten is compared to titanium when its strength is discussed. However, when it’s mixed with carbon to form tungsten carbide, it is way stronger than diamond. Wearing diamond and gold jewelry while performing your daily tasks can make them dull and are prone to damage, but tungsten rings can withstand all kinds of harshness as it is tough and has highest melting and boiling point.
Here are some advantages of all jewelry that is made out of tungsten metal –
Tungsten metal rings are stronger than titanium.

Tungsten wedding bands are more reliable than gold or diamond. Wedding bands have to be worn regularly. If you ever scratch it or if the diamond comes out then repairing cost will be high.
Another biggest advantage of this metal is its original shine. No matter how harsh you are on your ring or wedding band, the luster will never fade. White gold is not a metal, but a polish of rhodium on gold. When you start wearing your white gold wedding band, regularly, the polish comes out and you can see yellow gold under it. Then you will have to take it for polishing to jewelry store again. With diamond, you always have to get it cleaned to maintain its luster. So don’t you think tungsten metal is far better?
