Why Tungsten Carbide Rings are Unique?

Tungsten carbide rings are unique because of their incredible strength and durability. They are 4 times harder than titanium, making them incredibly scratch resistant. They will never bend out of shape and are nearly impossible to shatter.


Tungsten carbide is also a very affordable metal, making it a great option for those who want a high-quality ring without spending a fortune. And because it is so strong, you can be sure your tungsten carbide ring will last a lifetime.


What are the Limitations of Tungsten Carbide Rings?

Tungsten carbide rings are not without their limitations. One of the biggest limitations is that they cannot be resized. Once you have your ring, it is important to make sure that it fits properly because you will not be able to resize it later on.


Additionally, tungsten carbide rings can scratch and chip more easily than other types of rings.
