What is Tungsten?
Tungsten, a chemical element that is also known as wolfram, with symbol W and atomic number 74. This metal was discovered in 1781, naturally found on Earth and it is a hard, rare metal when uncombined under standard condition. Out of all metals, it has the highest boiling point of 3422 degrees Celsius and the highest tensile strength.
When in its raw state, it is a very hard steel, gray metal hard to work on and often brittle. Due to these features, tungsten is worked by forging, extruding and drawing mainly to produce hard materials such as wedding bands and wedding rings.
BLACK TUNGSTEN WEDDING BANDS WITH DIAMONDS
Tungsten is extremely durable and very hard. Many choose to add diamond on it to make it more beautiful and sleek because the metal lasts and doesn't bend out of shape hence reducing the damaging risks of the diamond. The characteristics of black tungsten wedding bands with diamonds include;
Tungsten natural color is gray when the diamond is added; it becomes a more spectacular. Black tungsten wedding bands are mostly made with a plate over the gray natural color. However, these plates eventually scratch, any type, whether plate contains tungsten carbide ingredients or not, or gold.
Although Everything Wedding Rings recommend people to avoid black tungsten wedding bands, there remains a unique option; Titanium Kay 2nd Generation wedding band. The band is black with a solid black inlay that is 100% scratch proof.
Anytime you want to buy tungsten carbide rings consider durability as the key factor. Tungsten carbide stands out as the most durable metal of all known metals, its durable more than gold, silver, platinum and palladium, and very highly resistant to scratching, but, tungsten has brittle properties. These features make it a bit weak especially when a lot of pressure is applied on it. It can easily break or crack rather than bending like any other metals such as gold and platinum.
Black tungsten wedding bands with diamond are made with quality grade tungsten carbide that makes it very durable, but if extreme force is applied on it, it will break or crack.
Black tungsten wedding bands with diamond are highly favored by men who work with a heavy type of machinery or involve in heavy duties due to its unique properties of break vs. bend.
Wedding bands made of Tungsten carbide material only are affordable, but jewelry grade varies. Quality tungsten wedding bands are made with tungsten carbide jewelry grade compounded with a nickel binder. They contain a high percentage of tungsten carbide and low amount of nickel. These bands are priced high unlike the ones with lower quality tungsten carbide grades and high amount of nickel. That’s why their market price varies from as low as $10 to over $500, especially diamond designer bands.
There are resizing terms and conditions, but not all retailers offer the same. Always give the correct ring size because tungsten wedding bands cannot be resized. Before you add the diamond to your black tungsten band, stick to retailers who have kind of return policy in case you grow or lose weight.
