Comparing Tungsten Steel Carbide and Titanium Wedding Rings

Comparing Tungsten carbide and Titanium wedding rings

tungsten carbide
and titanium are considered “
model metals
” in the jewelry industry because they were not available to the consumer market as commodities until ten years ago. They have gained tremendous popularity since the introduction and become an integral part of the jewelry material spectrum.

Due to the rather little exposure, many questions arise concerning
tungsten carbide and titanium
when it comes to choosing jewelry. The followings are some points of consideration if you are seriously thinking about
buying a titanium or tungsten wedding rings.

1. Ductility

Titanium is more ductile than
tungsten carbide
in the common alloys used in jewelry. In other words, when a
wedding ring
is under high pressure, such as hit by a car door, a titanium ring would be bend out-of-round whereas a
tungsten carbide steel ring
would fracture into several pieces. Hence, in terms of safety, a
tungsten carbide ring
is “safer” to wear.

2. Hardness

Titanium and tungsten steel are both known for the superior hardness over traditional metals such as gold
, silver and platinum. One thing worth noting is that it is not the metals themselves in a pure form that possess the hardness, it is their alloys that do. Roughly speaking, the hardest form of
tungsten carbide
is harder than titanium alloys, and only under extreme circumstances, such as abrasion from diamonds, can it be damaged.

3. Weight

Titanium is lighter than tungsten carbide steel, or more precisely, has a lower density. Titanium alloys are about 43% lighter than stainless steel and
tungsten carbide
is about 90% heavier than
stainless steel

4. Hypoallergenic

This is the very same concern as buying silver jewelry to some people: Will I be allergic to the jewelry? In general,
titanium jewelry
is virtually safe to wear for everybody. Yet, some
tungsten carbide jewelry
contains the element cobalt that some people are allergic to. Interesting, another form of
tungsten alloy
using nickel as a binder metal is hypoallergenic, even to people who are allergic to nickel.

5. Engraving and resizing

Titanium wedding rings
can be engraved and resized.
Tungsten carbide ring
is too hard to be engraved or resized,but
can defer to your opinion to engraved character or design.

6. Coloring

Titanium reacts with different chemicals and produces alloys of different colors. Jewelry makers use anodization to coat colored patterns on
titanium rings
. Black titanium is another form of titanium alloy that has a different color than the commonly used grey color. On the other hand,
tungsten carbide
is usually offered on in black color only,but on
, you can choose white or
black tungsten rings
and so on.

7. Pricing

Titanium jewelry
is in general cheaper than
tungsten jewelry
primarily due to the difference in equipment and environment control need to produce them. The temperature for forming a
tungsten steel carbide
is about 6000 Fahrenheit, which has to be in either a vacuum or hydrogen environment.
