Tungsten Rings: A Fad To Avoid
When it comes to wedding bands, a new fad for the material is tungsten. Tungsten, falsely marketed as an indestructible metal, has many flaws that can lead to situations that will give you a headache. Many of the companies selling these rings are misinformed of its characteristics, leading them to make claims about its durability that are just not true. Let’s look at some of the blatant proof.
These rings break much more easily than you can imagine, especially since they are written off as unbreakable. Check out this webpage for more details on how breakable this stuff is. Dropping it from a decent height or being smashed can break tungsten. These circumstances are not frequent, but the likelihood that either of those events can happen at least ONCE before the time you get married and the time you die is pretty high.
The point of this is to focus on alternatives as opposed to tungsten. It isn’t that the risks are so high that getting one of these rings will ruin your life, it’s that it isn’t logical to get a ring made of this material when there are much better materials out there. Watch this video of a man hammering a men’s tungsten wedding band, as well as bands made of other materials. The proof is just too obvious.
Here is an example for you: what if you break your hand playing a sport with your wedding band on, and your fingers swell up? If you had a gold ring on, you would be able to remove it without having to destroy it forever. If a gold ring is cut, it can be mended back to your size for when your hand heals. The difference with tungsten is that it is so stiff; diamond cutters can only cut it. Even if you do have a pair of those, the ring is gone forever.
All I am asking is that you are more informed about your decision. Choosing tungsten as a wedding band is like choosing a presidential candidate because he “seems like a cool guy”. Consider the other options before going for what appears to be the cool option.
