All the things you can do with a tungsten ring on you wouldn’t do with your gold band.

Not all wedding bands are created equal

Not all wedding bands are created equal!

Your wedding ring is meant to be a symbol of the union you entered into on your big day, and you’re going to want it to look just as good years down the line as it did the day you slipped it on. And while you may not be use to having a ring on day in and day out, it’s best you know now that only tungsten wedding bands can hold up to the everyday wear and tear a man’s wedding band goes through.

The reality is softer metals like gold and silver bend, scratch and tarnish during everyday activities, leaving you with an unsightly wedding band. Tungsten wedding bands, on the other hand (no pun intended!), are extremely durable, and their hardness of the tungsten keeps your ring pristine no matter what you’re doing with your ring on. But just in case you weren’t convinced, here’s a list of things you can still do wearing tungsten wedding bands, that you couldn’t without damaging a gold ring:

1. Sports: Pick-up ball after work, your weekly softball game or even lifting weights at the gym, if you’re wearing a gold band you better put it in a safe place ‘cause it’s gonna get scratched. Just remember where you put it in your gym bag because if you come home without it, you’re in trouble! But with men’s tungsten wedding bands, it’s never a worry. You can keep your ring on and play right through. The toughness of tungsten rings will hold up no matter how hard you play.

2. Yard Work: What guy doesn’t take pride in a perfectly landscaped yard? While getting your hands dirty might be good for your grass, it’s more than likely your gold band wouldn’t enjoy it. Tungsten carbide wedding bands don’t tarnish and won’t be bothered by a little dirt underneath them, allowing you to keep your front and backyards at their very best.

3. Home Improvements and Construction: The strength of men’s tungsten wedding bands make them a favorite of guys in construction (not to mention the Army!), and because they don’t bend can even save a finger from injury in an accident. Even if you are doing just little jobs around the house, your gold band is going to get gouged, scratched and scraped, so why risk it?

4. Car Maintenance: Not much is more manly than changing a tire, but there’s always that lug nut that needs a bit more elbow grease. Not to worry, tungsten wedding bands don’t bend, so as you put a little extra leverage into that tire iron your wedding band is right there with you staying strong. Not only can gold and softer metals get bent out of shape, but they can even be gouged. What good is a ring that’s not a perfect circle?

5. Not Worry: In the end, it’s the best thing you can do wearing men’s tungsten carbide wedding bands instead of a gold band. With the world’s strongest and most durable wedding band on you’ll be able to wear your ring and go about your day without worrying what might damage it. That’s priceless peace of mind!
