So why plate a Tungsten Ring?

I've gotten this question quite a bit - are Black Tungsten Rings, or Gold Tungsten Rings, the same as Tungsten Rings?  Well the short answer is no.  The underlying material is the same as a plain Tungsten Ring, but once you put a plating over it, the ring will be taking on the characteristics of that plating.  Plating technology has improved by leaps and bounds over the last couple of decades, but it is important to remember that if you plate something with gold, than the exterior of that ring is about as scratch resistant as gold.  There are so many kinds of plating for black material, the most common being a black rhodium plating - however with most Tungsten Rings you'll generally find something called IPG plating.

So then, to the point, why would you plate a Tungsten Ring?  For gold I think the answer is quite simple - you can get an affordable ring, that feels like gold.  Tungsten and Gold are very similar in weight, so this is a great way to give you plated ring that authentic feel.  We here at Tungsten Ring Info would not recommend paying more than $75 for a plated tungsten ring because of the fact that you aren't buying a very scratch resistant metal.  However these pieces of jewelry can last a lifetime with a little care, and they can save you a boatload of cash - and in this economy that's really the name of the game, isn't it?

  1. I’ve got a black tungsten ring to wear as an everyday ring and I have never had a problem with it. You gotta be sure you get a ring plated from a reputable company. I got mine at Ring Ninja, and it even comes with a replacement policy.
