Tungsten carbide is the most scratch resistant metal known to man. Unlike rings made of traditional metals such as gold, silver, and platinum, tungsten is extremely hard. It's affordable, and has a nice weight to it, like gold and platinum. The only thing that can scratch a tungsten ring is a diamond. Tungsten rings are quick and easy to remove from your finger in case of medical emergency, easier than gold. It doesn't bend out of shape due to its hardness, so in an accident, the ring will not become deform where it would injure your finger even more. Tungsten is hypoallergenic. People with allergies to gold jewelry can wear tungsten jewelry. A perfect gift for any upcoming special occasions.
