Tungsten rings have become a popular fashion accessory as well as a symbolic expression of commitment. They are also known for being very durable, scratch resistant, and strong enough to stand up to the rigours of everyday wear. However, it is important to note that tungsten and tungsten carbide are not the same thing. While a pure tungsten ring would be very hard, it is not as strong and durable as a tungsten carbide ring. Tungsten carbide is made by combining tungsten with carbon, and it is this combination that makes it so strong, durable and shiny. For this reason, it is a good idea to always check that you are purchasing a tungsten carbide ring rather than just a plain tungsten one.
Tungsten carbide is also often referred to as solid carbide, cemented carbide, or tungsten carbide cobalt (WC-Co). It is an alloy of tungsten and carbon, with metallic cobalt serving as the matrix. It is a popular choice for cutting tools, especially in applications where high-speed steel tools would rapidly wear. Tungsten carbide is extremely abrasion resistant and can withstand higher temperatures than steel.
Wholesale tungsten carbide rings are available in many different styles, with 6mm and 8mm being the most common widths. Some have precious metal inlays to add a more glamorous touch, while others are simply a flat band with no embellishments.
