Tungsten Carbide - A Popular Alternative to Gold
Ask Your Family Jeweler - May 2012 Edition
Tungsten Carbide wedding bands are becoming more popular as newlyweds and engaged couples realize the many benefits that Tungsten Carbide bridal jewelry has to offer. Tungsten rings are made from Tungsten steel and Carbide powder, which are forged together making a material approximately three times harder than steel. That is why Tungsten Carbide is often referred to as a Hard Metal due to its very high hardness in relation to other metals.
The extreme durability of Tungsten jewelry makes it the perfect metal to symbolize the eternity of your love. Tungsten jewelry is nearly indestructible and can only be damaged by extreme measures, unlike gold or platinum. Another benefit of Tungsten jewelry is the value. Compared to gold and platinum Tungsten carbide is much more reasonably priced. Tungsten Carbide jewelry is truly the perfect marriage of strength, style, durability, comfort and value. At Amoskeag Jewelers we have an extensive collection of Tungsten Carbide Jewelry in stock and can help you to choose the perfect Tungsten Carbide jewelry.
