They are then polished with diamond wheels resulting in a polish and shine that will last forever. Discover Dura Tungsten and discover a ring that is permanently polished and always looks brand new.

What is Black Tungsten?
Tungsten carbide is naturally grayish in color, and because of its extreme hardness is a perfect base metal for physical vapor deposition (PVD) coatings. The rich luxurious color of black tungsten carbide results from a PVD process which deposits thin layers of color in a high temperature, vacuum environment. This process permanently changes the exterior surface color of naturally gray tungsten carbide wedding bands to a deep and luxurious black. The PVD coating on our Black Tungsten wedding bands not only produces a handsome wedding band that is similar to the color of onyx, but it improves the material properties of these wedding bands by extending their service life through high wear resistance and low surface friction. Black Tungsten wedding bands are resistant to typical wear and scratching, and carry a lifetime sizing warranty just like all of our other tungsten wedding bands. With its rich color, lustrous shine, and sleek new designs, black tungsten is one of the hottest looks in tungsten wedding bands and is proving to be a popular choice for brides and grooms wanting wedding bands that express their individuality.

What is White Tungsten? 
Under carefully controlled manufacturing conditions, and using a special proprietary technical five-stage bonding process, the exterior surface color of naturally gray tungsten carbide wedding bands can be permanently changed to a rich and luxurious white. Using a 95% pure platinum group metal, the coating bonded to these white tungsten wedding bands not only produces a handsome wedding band that is similar to the color of platinum, but it improves the material properties of these wedding bands by extending their service life through high wear resistance and low surface friction. Although not as scratch-resistant as classic gray tungsten wedding bands, white tungsten wedding bands are more scratch-resistant than any of the other contemporary metal and precious metal wedding bands. Just like all of our other tungsten wedding bands, they carry a lifetime sizing warranty. With a bright white color, lustrous shine, and sleek new designs, white tungsten carbide wedding bands are the hottest new look in tungsten wedding bands and are proving to be a popular choice for brides and grooms wanting an alternative metal wedding band with the bright white look of platinum or white gold.

Can Tungsten rings ever scratch?
Tungsten rings are durable enough for every-day use and keep their original polish and luster for life. Tungsten carbide can only be scratched or damaged by extreme measures, like abrasion from diamonds or corundum. Consequently, activities that would normally require the removal of conventional wedding bands for their protection can be performed without concern by the wearer of a tungsten carbide wedding band. While extremely strong and scratch-resistant, tungsten carbide is a bit more brittle than traditional metals used in wedding bands. Fortunately, our outstanding warranty covers even the unlikely event of your tungsten ring chipping or breaking! In addition, we warrantee the sizing, polish, and texture of all our tungsten wedding bands for life.

Please note: Some of the most popular designs combine precious metals with tungsten to create unique wedding band styles. Many of these designer styles feature inlays of sterling silver, platinum, palladium, rose gold, white gold, and yellow gold. The tungsten portion of these wedding bands will maintain its original polish and luster for life, while the softer inlaid precious metals will eventually develop a textured appearance over time, creating an attractive contrast against the lasting polish of the tungsten carbide.
