Why is tungsten used in jewelry?

Tungsten is becoming much more popular in jewellery making. Its density, similar to that of gold, allows tungsten to be used in jewelry as an alternative to gold or platinum.

Unlike rings made of traditional metals such as gold, silver, and platinum, tungsten is extremely hard and scratch resistance, which are making them popular as wedding rings. People with allergies to gold can wear tungsten jewelry. Tungsten carbide rings and wedding bands will not show flaws, and are the most wear-resistant rings you can buy.

Can tungsten rings be resized?

No, you can’t resize a tungsten ring. The simple reason is that, tungsten is too hard to cut with any conventional jeweler’s tool. Tungsten rings run approximately half size larger than traditional metals.

How do you remove a tungsten ring in case of emergency?

Extremely hard materials like tungsten carbide rings will need to be cracked-off, rather than cut off. They can be safely removed in case of an emergency, using a pair of vice grips. Clamp vise grip pliers loosely on the ring and tighten slowly until you hear a crack.
