Men's Tungsten Rings
For the man who wants to make something of a statement with his fashion jewellery , a tungsten ring could be the perfect choice.
Tungsten is a lustrous grey metal which is becoming more popular for rings - wedding and engagement rings included - mainly for men. Men's tungsten rings can be very plain or they can be decorated and ornately engraved. It's even possible to get yellow, silver and rose gold coloured tungsten rings so your only limitation is imagination. Tungsten's strength, durability, and affordability make it a popular and attractive option, especially for active, sporty men who don't want to scratch a conventional engagement or wedding band.
The vast majority of tungsten rings are for men, so typically they are heavier and wider than most wedding rings. They can be highly decorative though and some of the popular styles of men's tungsten rings include tungsten inlaid with precious metals such as silver, platinum, or gold to give the ring a vivid splash of contrasting colour and designs with grooves, bevels and carvings around the band.
Some tungsten men's rings have a highly reflective semi-glossy, or matte finish and some have diamonds or gems inset into the tungsten band - usually in a protected flush or bezel setting.
If you're hunting for a stylish tungsten men's ring you also need to factor in other things. Remember that pure tungsten isn't as strong as tungsten alloys like tungsten carbide and nickel is often combined with tungsten carbide because of its strength. Cobalt can also be combined with tungsten but occasionally the cobalt reacts with oils in skin and this may cause the ring to tarnish.
Though tungsten is incredibly durable, it's still a good idea to take it off if you're doing anything that could damage it. Tungsten rings are easy to care for and can be cleaned with a mild detergent and a soft cloth. Men's tungsten jewellery and rings are becoming more popular and widely available so if tungsten is the metal of your choice you should easily be able to find a design you love.
