Tungsten Versus Gold Mens Wedding Bands


Tungsten Versus Gold Mens Wedding Bands - we decided more needed to be written about this subject in that tungsten for use in mens jewelry, particularly in mens wedding bands has become one of the most sought after metals of all time - at least in the past two decades. There are many contemporary metals - metals that are sometimes called alternative metals - they are different or an alternative metals to the time-honored precious metals such as gold, platinum, palladium and silver. To be sure there are a number of reasons for this surge in popularity, this demand from the buying public and therefore from manufacturers and sellers worldwide. We explore some of the main reasons for this high-demand sensation below.

First, tungsten is durable. Known as one of the hardest metals on the earth - tungsten is approximately 10 times harder than gold - which makes this metal a top priority when searching for a more scratch-resistant product from which a wedding band can be made.

Second, tungsten is less expensive than a precious metal such as gold. Gold runs over $1,000 an ounce. Tungsten is no where near this cost - in fact in China they can produce tungsten rings for under $5.00. And even though it is less expensive it can be used to create some very stunning designs as we will explore more in depth in our fourth reason below.

Third, there is an unending source of tungsten in the world marketplace. The reason for the reduced cost in tungsten is that it is so plentiful - there is not a known or limited supply as we sometimes find with other "precious" metals. When a product is plentiful then the supply and demand reality comes into play, driving end products costs down and making them affordable for the general marketplace as a whole. Although the supply side of economics is a very real factor in the cost relationship with tungsten - the final product can in many instances be made with diamonds, or rich exotic inlays or any other variety of additional inlays.

Fourth, skilled artisans have learned how to fashion stunning designs using what might be called a rather common element. We thought you might like to see an example of a basic tungsten ring with a not-so-basic inlay making the finished piece a rare and beautiful masterpiece. The T104M pictured below is just one of thousands of examples of what can be done when tungsten is used in a mens wedding band.

The unique thing about tungsten versus gold is that you can have it both ways if you choose. Some of our most popular meteorite rings can be made in white gold, yellow gold, platinum, palladium and other exotic precious metals.
