Do Cobalt rings scratch?

If you’ve been following Alpha Rings for long enough then you’ll know that we’re a massive fan of cobalt rings. Cobalt rings offer plenty of reasons to make them an addition to your wardrobe. They combine an incredible lustre with unparalleled value in our opinion. When you consider that the Cobalt product was designed to closely resemble Platinum, you can see just from the cost difference alone the value that it offers.

rings made from Cobalt offer a lustre very similar to Platinum, at a fraction of the price

However price to people is (correctly) not the deciding factor when choosing their ring. The more important question is “how long will it last”. And thats really a question that every bride or groom should be asking before they make their purchase.

If you have a look at our ring material comparison chart you can see that we have Cobalt right near the top of the tree. Cobalt’s ability to withstand the rigours of daily wear are quite exceptional. Probably the only products of note that hold their original form better would be Black Titanium and Tungsten. And neither of these have the same “silverish” lustre that Cobalt offers.

Cobalt Rings are very hard to scratch

The above image is one of the rings I wear most days of the week. This ring has been worn for almost 3 years. Although only taken with a phone camera, you can clearly see an absence of obvious scratches. There are a few very fine scratches, but the form of the Cobalt ring is very similar to how it was when I first started wearing it. This is one of the reasons I wear Cobalt.

So when deciding if Cobalt is the right product for you, consider the incredible scratch resistance that it offers, as well as its amazing appearance, smooth feel and low price point. With all these factors considered, Cobalt is truly one of the prime materials to make a wedding ring out of.

Carbon fiber rings reduced for August, to $99

To celebrate the last days of winter, Alpha Rings are offering a discount on our Tungsten rings with Carbon Fiber inlays. We’ve got Green, Red, Blue and our most popular inlay – Black.

We’ve sold these rings the world over and our customers always give us good feedback about them!

Unlike much of the product that you’ll find in some popular “marketplace” sites that you’ll find for $20 or $30 dollars, these are not made of junk material. Our rings are made of the highest grade materials and we use a nickel binding material, not cobalt, which is consistent with many of the cheaper products you’ll find.

Carbon fiber rings look great because they catch the light in different ways depending on the light that your in. The other thing is that the resin that we use is incredibly scratch resistant. We’ve seen friends who’ve worn this ring for years and there isn’t a single scratch on the face. Thats simply not going to happen with a cheap ring.

So for the rest of the month, all tungsten and carbon fibre rings rings are $99!!

Our new Cobalt rings

Mens Tungsten Ring

Our new range of Cobalt rings are almost here! While we haven’t yet had any come out of production, they are only weeks away. So whats so special about these new Cobalt rings? Well first of all if you’ve followed our posts you’ll know that at Alpha Rings, we’re massive fans of the Cobalt product.

Cobalt is just such a great material to make jewellery for men out of for a variety of reasons. First of all they look incredible. If you’re familiar with Platinum, then you’ll be familiar with Cobalt. The appearance of Cobalt is somewhat similar to that of Platinum with its incredible “clean” colour. Some people think that Titanium and Tungsten look dirty in colour, but Cobalt is most definitely not like that. The high scratch resistance of Cobalt is also a key reason why it is becoming more and more popular. Whilst it isn’t as scratch resistant as Tungsten, it most definitely is more scratch resistant than Titanium, which makes it a great choice for a mens wedding or fashion ring.

So our new range of rings will be the simple domed band. We’ve found that this is a really popular design and we believe our customers are going to love them. At the low price point we’ve introduced them at ($149), we think this offers a great balance between cost and quality. Cobalt rings for men¬†really should last a lifetime, and at that price, its an absolute steal.

We’ll upload some photo’s as soon as they come off the production line!
