TUNGSTEN WEDDING RINGS: A UNIQUE FASHION

Your wedding day should be one of the happiest moments of your life, but it’s hard to stay cheerful amidst the financial stresses of exorbitant wedding fees!  

If you’re looking for a versatile, durable and cost-efficient wedding band (without breaking the band),
consider tungsten metal for your Big Day jewelry.





A recent infographic created by the tungsten aficionados at TungstenAffinity.com shows us just how quickly the metal has become ‘matrimonial material.’ Let’s take a look at three reasons why tungsten is a smart choice for you!

Lately, tungsten has stood out as a contender for  wedding ring material. Tungsten is a steel-gray hard metal, and is steadily becoming a more popular choice over gold when wedding days arrive.  The word ‘tungsten’ translates into “heavy stone” in Swedish, and was first discovered in Spain by Fausto and Juan Jose de Elhuyar in 1783.

A recent infographic created by the tungsten aficionados at TungstenAffinity.com shows us just how quickly the metal has become ‘matrimonial material.’ Let’s take a look at three reasons why tungsten is a smart choice for you!

1. Stylish Material

Tungsten rings are not only preferred for their durability, but also for their beauty. Men especially find the light gray shine of tungsten appealing to their fashion-sense, and it can just as easily be plated in gold as well.

Tungsten wedding bands can cost less than $200. Compare that to the costs of $1,900 for a classic men’s platinum wedding band, or $700 or more for a white gold wedding band! Tungsten jewelry makes a great option for anyone looking for a combination of style and affordability.

2. Strong, Physical Properties

Unrefined tungsten is found naturally in the Earth, but only within chemical compounds. You won’t find pure tungsten naturally.  Its ore was discovered in 1781, and it was isolated as a metal element  years later. Tungsten was once known by the names of the ores in which it was found: ‘wolframite’ and ‘scheelite,’ until it was isolated as an element.

Interestingly enough, tungsten is the heaviest element used by any known living organism on Earth, found in some microorganisms. Tungsten has a melting point of 3422 °C (6192 °F), which is the highest melting point of all elements! It also has a boiling point of 555 °C (10031 °F), and solid density of 19250 kg m-3, which is almost exact same density as gold!

Tungsten is so strong that it isn’t easily scratched unless you work with something as hard as diamonds or corundum. Its durable, withstanding properties make tungsten an exceptional metal for wedding bands.

3. Versatility

Tungsten is used as filaments of incandescent light bulbs, in x-ray machines and for military projectiles. Tungsten itself is a marvelous metal that is also helping to improve the environment! Tungsten is a catalyst used to clean away dioxins, nitrogen oxides and aromatics from exhaust. It’s also used in energy saving devices, to conserve fossil fuels and to reduce carbon emissions. Tungsten can also be used as a substitute for lead, which is highly toxic and even deadly in high doses.

**The price-per-ounce of gold hit nearly $1,800 in the past year, and demand for gold increases faster than the supply! Tungsten is a cost-intelligent option for all your wedding band needs, at a fraction of the price! Visit TungstenAffinity.com for your number one selection of tungsten bands!**
