Shopping For A Wedding Ring? Debunking 3 Myths About Tungsten

Shopping Blog

Whether you are just getting married or want a new look to replace your old band, shopping for a new wedding ring can be overwhelming. Not only will you need to select from a variety of styles and designs, but you will also need to choose from different metals, stones, and jewelers. Fortunately, help is available if you are confused about the benefits of purchasing designer tungsten wedding rings. With this guide, you will learn the truth about a few common myths regarding tungsten bands.

Tungsten Is a Cheap Knock-Off

One of the most common myths people believe is that tungsten is just a cheap knock-off of gold or platinum. In reality, they are all very different types of metals and each offers their own set of pros and cons.

Tungsten on its own is too hard to form into different shapes to create jewelry, so it is usually combined with carbon to make it more flexible. Because of this combination, you may think the band you are purchasing is not as valuable as gold or platinum.

While less expensive than gold, silver, and platinum, tungsten is still quite valuable.

Tungsten Is Not Durable

Another myth people believe that because tungsten is not a traditional metal like gold or silver, it will not be as durable. Again, this is a myth, since tungsten can withstand a great amount of force and excessive wear and tear.

In fact, many people feel it is smarter to wear tungsten jewelry to avoid costly damage that results in dents and scratches in gold and platinum. Tungsten does not crack or break, so many people believe it is the ideal option when working around equipment, construction tools, and machinery.

Tungsten Is Not Attractive

When most people think of wedding bands, they think of sparkling gold and shiny titanium bands, so you may not believe a tungsten band is the most attractive choice. Fortunately, tungsten bands can be as attractive and, in some cases, even more attractive than standard gold or titanium wedding bands.

Tungsten is available in many different colors and design styles. Choose a standard band in a silver finish or a deep charcoal color if you prefer a more modern look. Tungsten rings are also available with or without stones and engraving, so you can add a bit of sparkle, personality, and meaning to your wedding bands.

You do not have to choose an ordinary wedding band because it is what everyone else is wearing. This guide will help you understand the myths about tungsten.

Shopping Can Be a Rewarding Hobby

I have loved to shop ever since I was a young girl and have always considered it one of my favorite hobbies. While many people find shopping a chore, I love hunting down great bargains, and I often check out every online and brick-and-mortar store that offers an item before I purchase it. That way, I can stretch my shopping dollars and stick to my relatively tight budget each month. I know that there are many people out there that find hunting for deals a chore or simply don't have time to do it, so I thought I would start a helpful blog where I share some of my most recent new shopping deals and discoveries. I hope you come back often and my posts help you!
