Tungsten by itself is a particularly hard, dense metal with the highest melting point of all metals. When combine with carbon alloy (therefore giving it the name tungsten carbide) it creates a hardness 8.5 and 9.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.
So what does that mean to you when shopping for a Tungsten Carbide Ring? It means the mens ring you select will be four times harder than titanium, twice as hard as steel, and virtually impossible to scratch. And with so many visually stunning designs to choose from, you really can’t go wrong. However, take extra care in determining the proper size since the extreme hardness cannot be sized like gold, silver, or platinum rings.
