Tungsten carbide is an inorganic chemical compound containing equal parts of tungsten and carbon atoms. Over recent years it has grown in popularity for the bridal jewellery industry due to its low price, extreme hardness and high resistance to scratching. Tungsten carbide is roughly 10 times harder than 18k gold, 5 times harder than tool steel and 4 times harder than titanium.
A tungsten carbide ring requires little care. We recommend that you use mild detergent and water to dampen a soft cloth and wipe the ring. Then use a dry lint-free cloth to dry the ring.
