The Libertine® collection of tungsten rings from Titanium Designs,
Inc. are contemporary choices for 21st century lifestyles. Here are
a few reasons why, with tips for tungsten wear and care.
Tungsten is the heaviest metal in the world. Its hardness is on par
with that of sapphire, meaning that only a diamond (or synthetic moissanite)
can scratch it.
While its density contributes to tungsten's strength, a tungsten ring
can still be broken if hit in just the right way or hit hard enough.
Blows such as these can fracture or chip a diamond too. Hardness and
toughness are different properties, exemplified by comparing glass
(hard) to plastic (tough). Harder substances are more scratch resistant
while tougher materials resist breakage or chipping.
Tungsten and the lighter-weight metal titanium are perfect nouveau
jewelry materials for very active men and women. Whether you're a construction
worker, mechanic, weight-lifter or just a person who enjoys a rugged
lifestyle, these metals are for you.
More tungsten facts:
Avoid harsh chemicals such as ammonia or ammonia-containing commercial
cleaners such as Windex when cleaning your tungsten ring. Usually all
that is required is a wipe with a lint-free microfiber cloth like the
type used to clean eyeglasses. Try mild soap and water work to remove
dirt or grime.
Wear your tungsten ring and head for the great outdoors, a swim, rock
climbing or the gym. Or, wear it to give your wedding band a break
when you want to engage in activities that might scratch or damage
gold or platinum.
