Pure tungsten is too difficult to work with, so instead jewelry is made out of a blend of both equal parts tungsten and carbon atoms, thus creating tungsten carbide. Tungsten carbide rings have the same characteristics of pure tungsten metal including a high melting point and high tensile strength. They are extremely resistant to scratching.
Is Tungsten durable?
Tungsten carbide is extremely durable, more durable than gold, palladium, silver or platinum. It is highly resistant to scratching but it does have brittle properties. This means that if enough pressure is applied to a tungsten wedding ring, the ring will crack or break instead of bending like, for instance, a gold or platinum ring. Tungsten rings made with quality grade tungsten carbide will not break unless extreme force is applied to the ring.
