If you are shopping for men's wedding rings, you obviously want to choose something durable, that has strength and fits your style. If you have a wedding looming, don't settle for your average classic metals like gold and silver just yet. There is a new superhero in town, and we would like to tell you all about it before you make up your mind. We're talking about tungsten rings.

What is tungsten?

Tungsten is a rare metal and one of the toughest elements on Earth. Tungsten carbide is also commonly used to make drill bits that can only be cut by diamonds.

 Scratch resistance

Tungsten is one of the two most scratch-resistant metals known to date. When in its natural colour without any plating, tungsten will still look brand new after years of wearing.

Tungsten colours and styles

Tungsten's natural colour is gunmetal grey and is a perfect blend with most outfits, but this is not limited to grey only. Tungsten can be plated with black, rose gold, blue, green, and many more.

 Tungsten Inlays

The cool thing about tungsten rings is that they can be crafted with different inlays, such as wood, antler, guitar strings, opal, and many more. The fact that your potential wedding ring can have wood or antler as an inlay is a conversation starter in itself and will give your ring a nice earthy look for your eternal promise.


Tungsten rings are the perfect alternative when you are shopping on a budget. With a tungsten wedding ring, you will still get that nice heavy weight of a high-quality metal without breaking the bank. Tungsten is also hypoallergenic, so it will not cause your skin to react negatively like other metals. Prices may vary depending on the ring inlay, shape of the tungsten, or colour of the plating on the tungsten ring.


Tungsten is brittle and can break under pressure. Although this may appear to be a disadvantage, it is actually a benefit because it can be broken off one's finger in the unlikely event that a finger breaks or is injured while wearing the ring.
