Tungsten Rings

A tungsten ring is a bold, edgy choice that is perfect for anyone looking to elevate their look with a modern twist. Previously known as wolfram, tungsten is a rare metal found naturally on Earth almost exclusively in compounds with other elements. While it was discovered as a new element in 1781, it wasn't until the 1960's that these types of wedding rings were created. Originally, tungsten, which derives from a Swedish word for "heavy stone," was used in utilitarian objects due to its wear resistance and precision grinding ability. It's for that reason that tungsten rings became an alternative to more classic wedding band metals: it is extremely durable and made for everyday wear. A tungsten ring is both a practical and an aesthetic choice for a men's wedding band.
