When couples are considering tying the knot and are searching for wedding bands, Silver, Gold or Platinum is what they will always think of first. This has been the tradition for a long time in almost every part of the world. In Uganda, Jewellery in gold material is the most expensive depending on the karats.
However, an increasingly popular material is now beginning to trend on the Uganda market because of its affordability and durability. It comes in many styles and black tungsten rings are becoming trendy among couples. That is the Tungsten Carbide ring. Let’s look a little bit deeper into what Tungsten rings are.
What is Tungsten Carbide?
Tungsten Carbide comes from joining alloying carbon with Tungsten which is an extremely hard and dense metal with a high freezing point. Usually, the best Tungsten rings have a minimum of 80% Tungsten which makes them hypo allergenic, strong and tarnish resistant which keeps its shine for a very long time.
When Tungsten is pure that is with a minimum of 80%, it is 10 times harder than the 18 Karat gold ring with a weight that is opulent and substantial and only compared to platinum. So, it’s very important to note when buying Tungsten rings that because of its hardness, it cannot be resized.
Janet’s Jewellery store is one of the few retailers in the world that give one year warranty and will replace your ring if any size or quality issues that may arise.
