Benefits of Tungsten Carbide

Tungsten carbide is a rare and highly desirable metal for rings and wedding bands. It will not bend, rust, tarnish or corrode, and it will not change color in pool water, freshwater or saltwater. Maintenance free and known as a lifetime metal. Tungsten (W) is a very dense metal and when combined with Carbon (C) it turns into Tungsten Carbide one of the hardest known materials on Earth, symbolized by the letters (WC) from periodic table of elements. It has the highest melting point (6,170°F) of all the metals found on Earth and it rates an 8.9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. It is the hardest of all the metals to scratch.

Hypoallergenic and safe to wear for individuals with sensitive skin. Tungsten carbide jewelry should never turn your skin green or black by causing an allergic reaction that some individuals experience with silver, gold and base metal jewelry.
