Tungsten rings are composed of a metal alloy, tungsten carbide. The alloy allows for maximum hardness and rigidity without sacrificing tensile strength. Each tungsten carbide ring is cut and polished with diamond tools. Tungsten rings are not sizable by ordinary jewelers’ tools, the metal is to hard. Most tungsten metal powder is converted to tungsten carbide (WC) by reaction with pure carbon powder, e.g. carbon black, at 900 – 2200C in pusher or batch furnaces, a process called carburization. Tungsten is extremely hard and dense. Combined with carbon and other elements, it becomes tungsten carbide, which registers between 8.9 – 9.1 on the Mohs hardness scale. It’s roughly 10 times harder than 18k gold and four times harder than titanium and is equal to a natural sapphires hardness.

Tungsten carbide formulations are required to create durable jewelry with polish and scratch-resistance. Tungsten carbide requires expensive equipment and diamond tooling to fashion into rings. It is not enough to make tungsten carbide rings with tungsten carbide, though – manufacturers must use the correct blend of tungsten carbide. Believe it or not, it is possible for a tungsten carbide blend to be too hard, resulting in a ring that can be fragile. With the wrong blend, a tungsten carbide ring will be brittle, and may break or shatter when dropped on hard surfaces.

Nickel- powder are superior for several reasons. Nickel- powder tungsten carbide is hypoallergenic, chemically inert and therefore will not oxidize, cause rashes, or irritate the skin. We do not use cobalt as it can have an adverse reaction with some wearer’s skin, sometimes causing a rash. Cobalt bonds with oils in the skin and leeches out of the ring resulting in oxidation. The oxidation appears similar to tarnished sliver, but cannot be removed by polishing or grinding. Nickel, on the other hand, does not bond with oil and therefore does not oxidize.
