One of the challenges of an online store selling men’s wedding bands is conveying the quality of our product to the customer. We believe that we provide amongst the best quality products in the business, and its difficult to get that message across prior to purchase.

Never is this more apparent with Cobalt Rings. It is very difficult for photography to show the true beauty and quality of these particular mens rings. Cobalt rings have been designed to offer key attributes which make it ideal for making wedding rings and fashion rings. One of the most appealing features of these type of rings, is the strong “whiteness” of the rings which is very similar in look to Platinum. The massive benefit Cobalt Rings have over Platinum Rings is their superior scratch resistance and much much lower price.

Cobalt Rings can still be scratched, but the visible signs of scratching are much more minor than , say Gold, Silver or Platinum Rings.

So what exactly are Cobalt Rings then? Cobalt Rings are actually an alloy comprising 3 main elements. Although the makeup of Cobalt Rings differs from one manufacturer to another (with drastic differences in quality outcomes), Edward Mirell Cobalt Rings are considered industry leaders, and joint developers of the Cobalt product. The three Elements in these rings are Cobalt (65%), Chromium (29%) and Molybdenum (6%). In combination, and with advanced manufacturing techniques, Cobalt Rings are born.

You might see us advertise our Tungsten Rings as saying “no cobalt” and wonder why, if Cobalt is bad in Tungsten rings, why it is hypoallergenic by itself? Well thats a great question. The answer basically lies in how Cobalt acts as an alloy. In short, its not great when its used as a binding agent in the production of Tungsten Rings. When combined with the required elements to make Cr-Mo-Co rings, this issue disappears.

Are Tungsten rings breakable?

Tungsten Rings

Search in Google and you will find the question posed “are tungsten rings breakable”, or a variation of that question. The reason that this question gets asked so much is that many retailers advertise their Tungsten rings as being “unbreakable” “indestructible”.  However this is simply wrong. Tungsten rings, like any other material, are far from indestructible.

Tungsten rings are manufactured to embrace the qualities of the material in order to enhance their incredible toughness. This means they become more scratch resistant. This hardness does come at a cost however. It makes them somewhat more brittle. If you watch some of the youtube footage of people hitting tungsten with a hammer, it is almost always a soft tap, or the ring is on a soft surface such as wood.

I believe this is unscrupulous and a bit of trickery quite frankly. By definition of what the product it, Tungsten rings can be broken. However this should not be looked at with disappointment. It might be a dangerous product to wear if it was truly indestructible as you may get the ring trapped and not be able to remove it. Titanium rings will bend, but a Tungsten ring will not. This means that if you can hit the ring hard enough, it will shatter.

What becomes critical at this point is the composition of the Tungsten ring. If the Tungsten/Carbon ratio is not exact, along with the correct proportion of trace materials, you may very well be purchasing inferior materials.

For the purposes of day to day wear, Tungsten rings are an extremely durable product. They are the most scratch resistant product on the market, more so than titanium, cobalt, platinum, ceramic, gold or silver. The trade off is the ductility/malleability of the metal. Tungsten does not excel in these characteristics.

Consumers need not be overly concerned with the above, we believe Tungsten to be one of the finest and most resilient materials on the market. There is no reason why you should be concerned that it will break, in fact if you manage to shatter your tungsten ring, you will most likely shatter the rest of your hand as well. I have worn many many tungsten rings over the years, and with general wear I have never broken one – ever.

The intent of this post is not to deter you from purchasing a Tungsten ring – far from it. We wouldn’t sell them if we didn’t believe in the product. The intent is to get you to use caution where you see retailers advertising “unbreakable” products, and then only go on to warranty against manufacturing defects! Use you keen eye to distinguish deceptive marketing techniques in the jewelery industry, if companies are willing to deceive you on this fact, what else are they keeping from you?
