Tungsten Rings versus Stainless Steel or Titanium Rings

A reoccurring theme when searching for a wedding ring is what type of metal to purchase. There are many options to choose from, but for this particular blog post I will focus on three different types of wedding band metals: Tungsten, Stainless Steel, and Titanium. All three rings can range in price based on location of purchase, special additions to the ring (diamonds, engravings, ect) but I would like to place emphasis on which ring category will give you, the reader, a guide when purchasing your ring(s).

 

Stainless Steel

Light weight and stylish, stainless steel is a multipurpose metal that is used for a range of products from kitchen appliances to wedding bands. These rings are generally the least expensive of the three categories I am covering, but at a price. These rings are more likely to scratch due to their lack of ability to remain durable through daily activities. This option has a great look, but if purchased, it may need to be replaced depending on use.

 

Titanium

Titanium is an extremely strong metal and like the stainless rings, is light-weight. Lightness of the material is something that some people like whereas other do not depending on style choice, perception of light-weight rings, ect. This ring is prone to scratches however it is more scratch resistant than a stainless steel ring, costing a little bit more on average than the stainless.

 

Tungsten 

Tungsten rings are heavier in weight and have the strongest lifetime durability out of the three categories. Tungsten is about ten times harder than 18K gold and about four times harder than titanium. Tungsten also holds its shape for forever which means the ring will not bend or wear down. Slightly more expensive than the previous metals, Tungsten rings make up for their minor price increase through their lifetime durability.

 

Out of the three metals listed, Tungsten is by far the most bang-for-your-buck option. Cheap rings in price, Tungsten is a purchase that will last for forever.
