What could be more amazing than having a cheap wedding band that doesn’t look “cheap” in any way? If you are looking for a cheap wedding band which is stylish, glossy and durable as well, tungsten wedding bands are just the kind you would like to have. Apart from being affordable, tungsten bands are fashionable, contemporary and peculiarly stylish although they are often understated for style and looks.
There can be stated several reasons other than low cost for choosing tungsten wedding bands instead of precious gold, silver, diamond or titanium bands. Ranked 9 on Mohs scale, tungsten carbide is the second hardest mineral behind diamond which is ranked 10 on Mohs scale. Owing to this hardness and strength, tungsten wedding bands are durable and tough to scratch or bend. This is especially good for men who have to do rough and tough kind of daily work that can cause their wedding bands to lose their shape and luster.
Tungsten wedding bands are also a very feasible option for those men who are not used to wearing jewelry because of their very light weight. These masculine looking rings are so light that one almost forgets wearing anything at all. Because of the hardness of tungsten, these bands may not be hand engraved, but you have always the option of laser engraving.
It is advised to get a tungsten ring free of cobalt so that you don’t turn your finger green while wearing it. Cobalt has the tendency of leaving green stains on hands. Unfortunately a number of newly-wed people, especially men who are not formerly used to jewelry, grow allergies for metals used in ornaments. Because of the hypoallergenic nature of tungsten wedding bands, there can be no allergic reactions as in the case of gold due to reaction to alloys in it.
In addition to these physical attributes of tungsten which lend tungsten bands durability and certain other advantages over other metal bands, there is no dearth of design and style as well. Truly speaking, tungsten bands have actually broken the ages’ old belief that weddings bands are traditional pieces of jewelry made in certain specific designs and styles only. They have made the wedding bands a very fashionable and stylish thing to wear. Tungsten wedding bands are now available in colors, designs and styles to match any formal attire whatsoever. It is mainly because of the less precious nature of the material that tungsten wedding bands manufacturers have introduced new and innovative designs to make for the so called cheap material stigma. Only in this way can they compete with the manufacturers dealing in precious gold and diamond jewelry.
These physical and ornamental design qualities together established tungsten as a reliable material for all important wedding bands which were otherwise always made of costly metals. Affordable tungsten wedding bands have truly brought the stylish and lustrous jewelry well within the reach of every person.
