Can Women Wear Tungsten?
Tungsten is such a fantastic metal, although it certainly has a few draw backs like all metals so be sure to read up, do your research and go for the metal that will best suit you and your lifestyle. This may mean owning more than one ring!
A big question we get asked here at Mens Wedding Rings HQ is whether tungsten is suitable for women. While is it more commonly marketed towards tungsten mens rings I have helped fit many ladies into a unique and comfortable tungsten ring.
Why Would It Not Be Suitable For A Women?
The main reason why women are less likely to buy a tungsten ring over a titanium ring for example, is that tungsten is a heavier metal. Also the nature of creating a tungsten ring leaves most designs wide and thick, something a lot of women tend to avoid. If part of a wedding band set, this obviously does not work as the finger is usually not long enough for 2 to 3 tungsten bands!
Why Tungsten Can Be Perfect For Women?
However, as an everyday dress ring or if you only want to wear one wedding band, say for work or traveling or everyday lifestyle choice, than tungsten can actually be a perfect choice for ladies.
Tungsten does not react with your skin, does not scratch under normal wear and tear (we have a warranty with all our tungsten designs) and keeps it shine (if you purchase a polished band over a brushed!). This means that busy women can wear their ring with confidence, knowing that they will not bend it, warp it or tarnish it.
Whether you just want a very sheen looking dress ring or a single wide band wedding ring, tungsten should certainly be considered for women.
Tungsten Draw Backs (P.S EVERY Metal Has A Draw Back!)
The biggest draw back, that a lot of people are getting very passionate about (and not in a positive way) is that under high pressure impacts tungsten can crack or shatter. This is actually designed for your own protection. Unlike traditional metals, such as gold and silver, if you were in an impact your ring would not bend and clamp down on your finger (often resulting in loss of circulation for lengthy periods of time, scaring or worse case amputation), tungsten will shatter. Another debate is why would people buy a ring, as a wedding band, if it will shatter in an accident? Too be perfectly honest, if in an impact accident, chances are the paramedic would cut your silver, gold or platinum ring off anyway. Now if it was up to me I would rather loose my ring in an accident over my finger any day!
