Tungsten Carbide is a space age alloy with an unmistakeable dark gun metal grey color and an invincible high gloss that sets it in a class apart from any other precious metal.
Jewelry with a lifetime high polish:
Tungsten bracelets are heavy, and Tungsten Carbide is the hardest of all metals. It is polished to a perfect mirror finish using diamonds, and unlike other metals, it will retain the exact polish for decades to come. In fact, the only way to scratch a tungsten bracelet or ring is with a diamond. No other material will affect it.
The distinction of wearing an exotic metal:
Because it has the highest melting point of any metal known, tungsten is used in space age applications and leading edge military projects such as hand held nuclear fission devices. The harness and heat resistance of tungsten renders it impervious to radiation.
The art and science of master craftsmanship:
Tungsten bracelets and rings are manufactured using sophisticated vacuum induction furnaces that require an oxygen free environment which reaches amazing temperatures above 6200 degrees F. In fact, Tungsten is so heat resistant, that if a solid piece entered the earth's atmosphoere ( as asteroids do), it would not burn. Instead, it would simply glow red and fall to the earth intact.
Buying advice for Tungsten Jewelry:
Tungsten jewelry should always be alloyed with Carbide when it is manufactured into rings or bracelets, as are all of the items on our site.
Pure Tungsten is soft and will scratch, and Tungsten Cobalt will often cause an allergic reaction on the skin which will result in a permanent discoloration of the metal.
Description of Tungsten Carbide:
Tungsten is about 10 Times harder than 18K Gold, 5 Times harder than tool steel, and 4 Times harder than titanium.
Tungsten measures between 8 and 9 on the Mohs hardness scale. Due to their extreme hardness, Tungsten Carbide Jewelry will hold their shape and shine longer than any jewelry on the market.
