Shop Story

The only thing that can scratch tungsten is a diamond. Yeah, we knew we admired diamonds for more than just their entrancing sparkle! But in all seriousness, the extreme durability of this strong-as-steel metal is why some people insist on purchasing a wedding ring crafted with tungsten. Cost effectiveness is another huge benefit as the price point will almost always be more budget-friendly than a similar band in white gold or platinum. Psst…. Most of the time no one will know the difference! Wearers also say there’s a nice, substantial feel on the hand when you choose tungsten. So if you’re looking for a long-lasting piece of jewelry that can stand up to any lifestyle, consider tungsten, which we should mention is hypoallergenic. Just bear in mind that a tungsten band cannot be resized because the metal is that hard. You’ll want to be sure you know your ring size before committing to the tungsten ring that will symbolize your nuptials to your one and only.

 

 

Tungsten Wedding Rings for Women and Men in 2019

 

 

Finding a Tungsten Wedding Ring

 

Tips:

One of the most distinguishing qualities of tungsten rings is their band width. Most bands fall within a range of between two and eight millimeters. So deciding which size is right depends on what look you want to achieve. A chunky band will take up a decent amount of real estate on your finger. Or are you after the more understated look of a slender band? Either way, be sure to note the specifications on each listing here, which will inform you of the band width of each piece of jewelry.

 

 

How to Choose a Tungsten Ring

 

Cost:

Tungsten is going to be more cost effective than white gold or platinum. Phew! This round-up features bands from $20 to around $300 and every price point in between.

 

 

Color:

Tungsten looks like silver, but also comes in white. Rings made with this durable metal can be plated with rose or yellow gold. Look out for a few bands that are black or feature inlays of colorful gemstones.

 

 

Style:

Many tungsten bands stick to a formula of timeless simplicity. Tungsten wedding rings tend to be high on shine and polish and not overly stylized, which is why most people like them. But we also found some fun, sparkly elements for those of you who want a little more bling with your ring.

  

 

Other Considerations:

The truth is many tungsten rings are made with men’s larger hands in mind. So they’re substantial but designed for comfort. Of course, there’s no reason a woman couldn’t rock a chunkier band. We also found several slender, more traditionally feminine rings crafted with smaller fingers in mind. Happy shopping!

Best Gold-Plated Tungsten Ring

100S Jewelry Sandblasted Finish Band

This simple and elegant gold-plated tungsten ring for men features a smooth, sandblasted center band surrounded by two bands with a high-polish finish. We love the contrast of the two finishes and see why the piece is highly rated by Walmart customers. It’s a classic buy for a man who values timeless jewelry, doesn’t want a lot of fuss and will be happy to wear the same band the day he says “I do” and for years to come. By the way, the low price is very nice.

Oh, and congrats. YOU’RE MARRIED!

Best Slender Band

Charming Jewelers Polished Tungsten Ring

Price: $25.00

This simple Charming Jewelers ring combines the durability and weight of tungsten in a slender, dainty design for women. We love the price of this piece, too. Might we suggest the classic-looking ring would make a very nice understudy for a more expensive ring if you’re going on vacation or work at a job that requires the use of your hands? Or if your engagement ring is a stunner, let it stay center stage with this perfect, understated, complementary band.

Specifications:
2 mm band width

What Reviewers Are Saying:
“I like how it's not too expensive. The material is nice. It's not as thick as I thought it would be, but it's small and cute compared to my husband’s. It's very comfortable to wear. It's also pretty. I'm very pleased with this ring. I love my band, and it’s very affordable, too.”

Best Overstock Ring

Tungsten Brushed Finish Band

Price: $90.00

If comfort is key, meet this best-selling Overstock ring with over 285 near-perfect reviews. The wide band with a brushed finish center and layers of high polish features a beveled edge for a sophisticated, refined feel any man can appreciate. Devotees rave about the masculine quality this ring exudes. We are big fans of combining matte and shiny elements in one wedding band, which is kind of the best of both worlds. It’s worth noting this band runs a half size bigger than normal because, as a reminder, you can’t resize tungsten.

Specifications:
8 mm band width

What Reviewers Are Saying:
“This is a great ring. My husband loves it. It fits great and is comfortable and very durable. He uses it to open bottles, wears it to work and has it on when fixing his cars. Even through all of that, there’s not a single scuff or scratch yet! The ring does have some weight to it, but my husband actually likes that about the ring. The eight millimeter width is the perfect size for my husband, but that is a wide ring. It’s bigger than average bands, but to me that is one of the things that makes this a ‘man’s ring.’ The color, weight, size and durability make this a true manly ring.”

Best Two-Tone Ring

Oliveti Tungsten Wedding Band

Price: $26.00

A delicate rose gold strip adorns this slim and graceful brushed tungsten band. We love how dainty the ring looks — It’s only three millimeters wide. We can totally see this wallet-friendly jewelry find being paired with an elegant, vintage-inspired, rose gold engagement ring. But alone or as a set, the Oliveti piece will stand the test of time stylewise. And of course, because this ring is crafted of tungsten, it’ll be around for as long as your love. Yeah, we have the chills, too, and all the feels.

Specifications:
3 mm band width

Best Laser-Etched Band

Celtic Design Ring

Price: $27.00

If you want a tungsten wedding band with a little something extra, check out the laser-etched Celtic design on this price-conscious ring. The medium-width band is highly rated on Overstock for its pretty pattern and shiny finish. Reviewers do caution that the etched design is subtle, so if you are looking for a very distinct, patterned ring, this piece may not be for you. Meanwhile, we love the idea of purchasing this band for a vow renewal or as a backup ring. Wearers swear it’s virtually indestructible so don’t be afraid to put it to the test!

Specifications:
5 mm band width

What Reviewers Are Saying:
“One of the first things that caught our eye was the Celtic design since our ancestry is Celtic. The etching, especially on the five millimeter band, isn't as distinct and visible as I thought, but we are both still very happy with them. My fiancé and I were looking for unique wedding bands and came across this ring after surfing the internet. When we received the ring, I immediately opened the box and tried on the ring. It fit perfectly! I followed the advice of the reviews on this site and ordered a half size smaller than normal. I'm glad I did. The ring is beautiful and shiny. I love it.”

Best White Tungsten Ring

Triton Comfort-Fit Band

Price: $350.00

Compared to many other rings on this round-up, the white tungsten design from Triton is a splurge at over $300. But the timeless simplicity and elegance of the band is going to last a lifetime. Wearers promise you cannot damage this band. (We dare you to try!) Customers claim it stands up to more expensive and virtually identical platinum bands. Many report buying several bands that were uncomfortable or that wear over time, but this Triton band has both durability and comfort in mind. So in the end, it seems there is no reason not to buy this attractive, versatile, impressively-crafted ring.

Specifications:
6 mm band width

What Reviewers Are Saying:
“I had a platinum ring that looked just like this, which was purchased for many times the cost. I lost it after about six months and bought this as a substitute as I didn't pay that much anymore. Well, it has been about one and a half years now, and I have found the old ring. The platinum ring has so many scratches even though I tried to take care of it. This ring looks just as good as the day it was purchased even though I don't try to avoid scratches. It is impossible to damage it! This looks far better and is so much more durable. I am only wearing this ring and believe this to be a much better ring. Don't even think about it another minute. You will not be sorry for your purchase.”

OK, stop. This ring is just attractive. We love the satin finish in the center and how it’s raised and sandwiched between two layers of high polish tungsten. The substantial band is manly and comfortable, which men typically love. It’s not worth overthinking this purchase.
