Why buy a Tungsten Wedding Band?
It is clear to see that tungsten rings have grown in popularity over the last few years. They have become increasingly more common as a groom’s choice of wedding band. Below, we will take a look at some of the reasons why people are choosing Tungsten rings over other more traditionally thought of metals like gold & platinum.
Many grooms are taking a more active role in the selecting of their wedding bands than ever before. Grooms these days want to stay clear of a traditional looking wedding band and look for bands that are different and unique and shows their personal style (Men can be fashionable too…believe it or not). This is why tungsten is such an obvious go to. Tungsten bands are available in an amazing variety of colours and styles, everything from black, silver, gold, rose gold, grey, brushed, high polished to wood, stone, carbon fiber and antler inlays. With all the variety tungsten bands have to offer, grooms can really find the perfect masculine, contemporary, bold or even classic look to suit them.
Unlike gold & platinum, tungsten rings are much more affordable. Gold and platinum wedding bands can cost on average between $500-$1000, but can go well above this as well depending on styles and also where you purchase them from. You can find high quality tungsten wedding bands for under $150, so if you lose it or your style tastes change, it won’t be as hard on your wallet to replace it, and let’s be honest we all lose things!
Strength & Toughness
As one of the hardest substances on Earth, tungsten rings can hold up to life’s daily pressures. Tungsten is 10 times harder than gold, so your tungsten ring will never bend dent or lose the original shape, the same can’t be said about gold and platinum (have you ever seen a gold band after a few years of marriage?....it’s not the same as it was day one). Since tungsten is so strong, you will never have to worry about removing your ring while working with your hands, as it is hard wearing and durable. It will stand up to the elements and will not tarnish or fade.
Always Looks New
Another unique attribute with tungsten rings is that they are practically scratch proof. Since tungsten is currently the most resilient metal available, your ring will always maintain the original lustre and have a permanent shine. The same cannot be said for other common metals like gold, silver and platinum, which scratch very easily and need to be re-polished every few years. Your tungsten band will stay looking fresh and new, just like your love for one another.
It’s clear that the tungsten wedding band trend is here to stay, they offer many unique advantages and style options to suit everyone, so why not step out of your comfort zone, take a closer look and find the perfect style for you.
