Tungsten is among the strongest metals on Earth, according to the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness. It’s harder than steel and titanium, and 10 times harder than gold, making these rings scratch-resistant and durable. They won’t lose their shape over time, and can stand up to the wear and tear of an active lifestyle. Tungsten rings keep their luster and shine for decades and do not require constant cleaning and maintenance as other metals. Tungsten rings because of their strength are incredibly scratch resistant and will remain blemish free for many years. Quality tungsten rings are proven to be hypoallergenic and suitable for almost everyone. Due to the strength of a Tungsten ring they cannot be resized. If your ring finger gains or loses size due to weight changes a new ring will need to be purchased.
Stainless Steel along with Titanium are popular options for modern wedding bands at a lower cost. They provide a sophisticated finish at an affordable price. Unlike Tungsten, Stainless Steel and Titanium are not as strong and will acquire scratches easier making replacing them every few years a possibility. However, Stainless Steel and Titanium can both be resized where Tungsten cannot. Titanium is estimated at four to five times stronger than Stainless Steel, but scratches easier and may become dull and marred over time.
Ceramic rings are not typically the first style that comes to mind when considering a wedding ring or even a casual ring. However, ceramic rings are quite durable, scratch-proof, shiny and/or silky depending on your style. Jewelry-grade Ceramic is not the typical pottery ceramic. It’s also known as Titanium Carbide. It’s important to know that while ceramic jewelry is quite durable and scratch-proof it can chip, so care must be taken to store separate from other jewelry and from striking objects.
