Will My Rings Scratch Easily?
Titanium rings which are very strong and durable, can be scratched with with another extremely hard item such as a diamond. However for most people it is virtually impossible to damage, even those in the construction industry or others who work with their hands for a living the titanium wedding band is a superb choice as a symbol of committed love. Of course any rings with gold, platinum, or silver inlays, can be damaged as these metals are not known to be hardened metals. Tungsten is totally resistant to abrasion. Being one of the hardest metals known to man tungsten carbide rings and wedding bands will NEVER scratch.
Can my ring be bent?
With a tungsten ring you never have to worry about it bending out of shape. It will always retain its roundness, even if too much pressure is applied the ring would shatter into pieces, not bend out of shape. Titanium rings are also very strong with high ductile strength, but if they are placed under extreme pressure could bend out of shape. The type of pressure that it would take is beyond what the human hand could do, and would require enough force to misshape the metal used in the wedding band or ring.
Will my wedding ring tarnish?
Our wedding bands and rings do not change color due to their inert chemical composition. As such daily use and exposure to the sun, salt water at the beach, while doing the dishes, or changing a motor on your sports car. An added benefit is titanium rings are also hypoallergenic so they will not make the person wearing them ill.
Can my ring be re-sized?
Resizing is a concern for everyone due to possible weight loss or gain in the future. Due to the strength of the metals titanium and tungsten have extraordinary melting points and as such they cannot be cut or welded and as such are almost impossible to re-size. We are able to stretch titanium rings up to one size as long as there is not any inlay or stones. Tungsten rings however cannot be res-ized ever. It is important that you measure for ring size carefully, including measuring during different times of the day to determine an average size that will be comfortable throughout the day.
