Tungsten carbide was previously used for industrial applications. Mens jewelry made of tungsten carbide has an even more incredible strength - it is four times harder than titanium and twice as hard as steel - this metal is so tough that it can only be damaged by diamond abrasion or a hammer blow. Mens tungsten carbide jewelry utilizes the qualities of this metal to its full advantage; all of the styles accent masculine prowess and every wardrobe.
But be aware when you shop for tungsten jewelry, that the binding used in creating this jewelry is extremely important. There are many jewelers who are using cobalt binders instead of nickel binders to cut costs, which can cause some individuals to experience an allergic reaction.
