Tungsten Carbide is 10 times harder than 18K Gold … 5 times harder than steel … and 4 times harder than Titanium. Tungsten measures between 8-9 on the Mohs Hardness Scale (Diamonds are a 10 - the highest on this Scale).
Why is this important? Tungsten rings have been referred to as the ring with the “permanent shine”. They simply will not wear like gold or silver where the original pattern and design disappears through the years. Tungsten Carbide rings tend to maintain a forever, shiny finish.
