What is Tungsten Carbide?

Guest Blogger Lisa 


Tungsten Carbide is becoming more and more popular for men’s rings.  This very durable metal is actually a super hard form of glass.  They start out as a fine powder.  The powder is combined with a chemical binder so that it can be formed into a soft, putty-like substance.  The tungsten putty is then placed into a mold and fired at extreme temperatures- resulting in preformed shapes that undergo an extensive grinding and polishing process.  The result is a ring that can be worn aggressively and still maintain it’s luster without scratching.

Tungsten Carbide rings are extremely hard and very durable…however, they are not indestructible.  They can break, crack or even chip if struck with enough force.  All Tungsten Carbide rings sold at Canadian Jewelry Exchange have a Lifetime Warranty against damage.  If you manage to damage the ring or if you lose a diamond, the manufacturer will replace the ring free of charge for as long as you own the ring.  The Lifetime Warranty also covers you if you require a size change – if your finger size changes, the manufacturer will exchange your ring for the new size you need – free of charge.  The only thing you are responsible for is the shipping costs (which usually work out to $50 as these are returned to the USA). 

Take a look through the Tungsten section on our website. There are all kinds of styles, from modern to traditional, with diamonds and without.  Plenty to choose from and all with the Lifetime Warranty.
