Avant-Garde Jewelry Company offers a wide selection of tungsten carbide rings, which are known for being the toughest and most scratch proof rings in the jewelry industry.

Whatever reason you have for investing in one of these bold and beautiful tungsten carbide rings, you can expect to have the investment for a lifetime with proper care.
People Love Tungsten Carbide Rings Because They Always Look New
It’s true that tungsten carbide is fairly new in the jewelry world, but it hasn't taken long for this exciting and attractive material to really take off and become one of the most popular choices on the market.
Tungsten carbide rings have durability comparable to sapphire and ruby gems. This metal rates between 8.5 and 9 on the Mohs hardness scale. In comparison, a diamond rates the highest at 10. You can easily see how indestructible this metal is. In fact, it is so tough that diamonds and corundum family stones or abrasive materials and tools containing corundum or diamond are the only possible way to scratch tungsten carbide. The material was once known more for its use in medical science and aerospace technologies, but its beauty and exceptional eye-catching appeal has since made it an obvious choice for jewelry, especially rings.
When jewelry makers create tungsten carbide rings, they combine tungsten powder with carbon. When these two elements are fused together under extreme temperature in high-pressure molds, they form a blank ring, which can then be finished into highly polished and extremely hard bands using diamond-cutting tools. This creates an extremely hard ring, but not so hard that it cannot be removed in an emergency. If there is ever a medical necessity to remove the band, it is simply removed by cracking with standard locking pliers. This is the same technique used in removal of ceramic and natural stone bands. Please take a moment to watch this demonstration:
Tungsten carbide rings can also be engraved on the inside, and special finishes can be added to provide a unique look. They can truly be everything you need and want a ring to be for a lifetime, even if your lifestyle is extremely active. Whether you work hard or play hard, your tungsten carbide ring will never scratch or show signs of wear. You can wear tungsten carbide rings while working under a car, scuba diving, rock climbing, washing dishes, lifting weights, gardening or doing anything else where normal jewelry and bands would typically be removed in order to preserve their quality.
