Iron Man’s Armor

April 30th, 2013

Iron Man 3 Poster
The much anticipated 3rd installment in the Iron Man saga is coming soon to a theater near you! Robert Downey Jr. returns as Tony Stark, the billionaire playboy philanthropist turned super hero via state of the art military exoskeleton. The villain for Iron Man 3 is none other than the Mandarin, one of Iron Man’s recurring arch-nemesis. Played by Ben Kingsley, the Mandarin will prove to be one of Iron Man’s fiercest foes.

Apart from the jaw-dropping trailer and the excitement of the Mandarin finally making his movie debut, the highlights also lie in the many glimpses of Iron Man suits this movie will offer. From different colorways and sizes, the new Iron Man suits are said to play a vital part in the upcoming blockbuster hit.

Iron Man Suits
While an army of Iron Man suits battling for supremacy has every tech junkie and Marvel Comics fan gushing with excitement, an even bigger question arises: Is such technology possible? And if so, what would be the materials used to give a human being flight, superhuman strength, repulsor blasts, and even space travel? While much of the technological needs for such feats is still being researched, there are some feats that can be accomplished with today’s technology. For instance, the materials needed for an exoskeleton armor to launch from Earth into outer space can be accomplished thanks to tungsten carbide. Because of its high melting point, a coat of tungsten carbide allows rockets to burn enough fuel and generate enough of power to blast from the ground and out of the atmosphere. Without it, the fire burning would melt not just the burners, but the ship itself.

Cost of being Iron Man
This could also be applied to Iron Man’s rockets within his feet, hands, and back (depending on which armor, of course). In order for Iron Man to break the sound barrier, his rockets would have to burn at super high temperatures, temperatures that only tungsten carbide would be able to withstand. Tungsten is still the hardest alloy with the highest melting point (5198 degrees Fahrenheit). Iron Man would also find much use for tungsten as a coating for his armor, since it ranks 2nd to diamonds on the Mohs scale of hardness.

Hercules Tungsten Ring with Gold Inlay

The technology that could be used in Iron Man’s armor is useful in today’s everyday life. As jewelry, tungsten carbide is a fine choice, especially for those who serve their families and their country. Because it is so scratch resistant, tungsten rings are a great alternative wedding band for individuals with jobs where they are constantly using their hands. The affordable price point also makes it a great option for those looking to save for their big day. And the lifetime warranty that we offer here at Tungsten World makes it a superb ring to buy without the hassle and worry.

Although we may not see exoskeleton armor like Iron Man’s for another 50 years in reality, Iron Man 3 will still strike wonder and inspiration for mankind to draw towards that goal in the future. In the meantime, we can use state of the art technology and metals to assist us in our everyday lives and well-being.

Breaking Barriers and Setting Standards

April 15th, 2013

More than 60 years ago, in 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the racial color barrier and debuted as an African American Brooklyn Dodger. His story has been told countless times, but last weekend’s box office opening for the movie ‚Äú42‚Äù was a grand slam. The Jackie Robinson movie features veteran actor Harrison Ford and John McGinley, along with familiar faces Chadwick Boseman and Nicole Beharie. In honor of Jackie Robinson, the MLB has set April 15th as Jackie Robinson Day, where all players on both teams wear the number 42 (which has been retired league-wide, the 1st of which to have been done in all sports).


Jackie Robinson’s legacy is one in which barriers were broken and a new age of standards were being set. Here at Tungsten World, we love to here stories of groundbreaking events that change the course of history. Though tungsten carbide has been used in light bulbs since the 1920s, it has only been applied to jewelry within the last 10 years. Rings made of tungsten carbide had many realistic advantages (such as resistance to scratches and permanent polish), but its acceptance to buyers was met with skepticism due to emotional attachments towards traditional metals. Gold and silver dominated the ring and wedding band industry, and continues to be one of the most sought after rings for jewelry gifts and newlyweds.


But as time went on, more and more jewelry customers began to see the usefulness of tungsten rings. The draw of a long lasting ring appealed to many in physical labor jobs, and the affordable price point made it a no brainer for couples trying to save as much as possible for their wedding day. Rings made of tungsten carbide are being slipped onto the fingers of more and more jewelry enthusiasts and married couples everyday and is widely accepted across the jewelry industry as a leading modern precious metal.

If you have your reservations against anything that hasn’t been around for long or isn’t popular to the masses, just remember this: Jackie Robinson changed history because he was able to help the Dodgers win despite the racism and hate surrounding blacks competing with whites. The same goes for tungsten jewelry: if it’s beautifully crafted, can help you save a hefty amount of cash, AND last you a lifetime, it should be worn as jewelry!

Don’t Be Fooled This April!

April 1st, 2013

On April 1st, it’s hard to trust anybody. That is, of course, if you forget that it’s April Fool’s Day. Then you just believe every crazy story that pops up in your Facebook feed, like your friend who posts a picture of his newly purchased Dodge Viper, or the girl who says she has a date with Justin Bieber. These stories are just too good to be true, and even when it’s not an April Fool’s joke, one has to question its authenticity.

Many people think that tungsten rings are too good to be true as well. A metal that can withstand any surface and be scratch free for a fraction of the price? It definitely sounds like a scientist’s kind of prank. But the honest truth is that it’s real. Tungsten carbide is the 2nd hardest mineral known to man (right after diamonds), and its appeal also lies in its affordability. Most consumers would think that a precious metal with these features would cost much more, but the fact is that tungsten wedding bands can cost 60% less than traditional metal rings, such as white gold or platinum.

This spring, don’t be fooled by stories told by word of mouth. If your wedding ceremony is coming up and you are still in need of a particular wedding band for your and/or your significant other, make sure to visit our vast collection of beautiful rings in tungsten and cobalt styles It will be hard to believe but rest assured, this is NOT an April Fools prank! Tungsten rings are the real deal!

Duck Dynasty, Lost Wedding Rings and Camo

March 28th, 2013

Last night’s Duck Dynasty episode had a bit of a wedding ring flavor to it and it got us thinking.

In the episode, Jase and his wife are in the jewelry store searching for a wedding ring for Jase. No, they aren’t just about to be married or even just married, he’d actually lost his ring years ago! After nearly 20 years without a wedding band on, Missy finally put her foot down and told Jase he had to get a ring.

We hear stories like this all the time. First, we’re always getting calls about lost wedding rings. Guys, you’ve got to be sure to get the best size for you wedding ring or else accidents will happen. And second, like Jase, we get many calls from guys not wanting to wear a wedding band because it’s “too shiny” or they “don’t like jewelry.” That’s fair enough but like Missy, your wife will eventually put her foot down and you don’t want to have to go the tattoo route that Willie almost convinced Jase to take.

In the end guys, you really have no excuse for not having a wedding band on. Before now, guys rings were usually modeled on ladies bands. So, its understandable why men in the past felt awkward wearing wedding bands. But now, with tungsten wedding rings and other rugged bands engineered specifically for guys tastes and their activities, there is definitely a wedding ring out there for you.

The Duck Dynasty guys got us thinking about what kind of wedding rings they might be perfect for. Naturally, as a family outfitted head to toe in camouflage almost 24/7, we immediately thought of our line of camo wedding bands. Jase may not have wanted something “too shiny” but we don’t think he’d argue with a black camo wedding ring that would blend right in while he is out hunting.

Have you lost your wedding ring and needed to replace it? Or is the ring you have now not manly enough? We want to hear from you.

Rose Gold Blooms in Spring!

March 22nd, 2013

It’s spring time! Which also means that it’s allergy season. Pollen is in the air from all the flowers that have sprung. But what else is in the air? It seems that couples are tying the knot left and right! Why is it that people seem to fall in love and take the plunge more often in the spring?

Scientifically speaking, it’s because of dopamine. Many educational and scientific articles state that spring allows more dopamine to be produced than in other seasons. Dopamine is responsible for reward-drive learning and a trigger for wanting new experiences. In spring, everything is new compared to winter: new colors, new smells, more outside activities, and even seeing more skin. This triggers the desire for more dopamine, which also gives us a good indicator as to why spring is regarded as the season of love (or at least first and new loves).

http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display/web/2010/04/09/love-in-spring

The season of love also happens to be wedding season. With the snow melting away and plant life reviving itself into bloom, spring is the perfect time for couples to hold their ceremonies and receptions. The weather is beautiful and guests are generally more available due to spring and summer break, as well as holidays. Gorgeous scenery deserves equally gorgeous decor and jewelry, specifically, rose gold.

Rose gold jewelry is rising in popularity within the fashion and wedding industry. Its unique color and shine make it one of the most sought after precious metals for spring weddings. Rose gold is widely used as an accent color for jewelry, such as this stunning tungsten ring with rose gold and silver inlay.


Rose gold can also be a flattering jewelry option for brides walking down the aisle. A small necklace with a rose gold hearts adds a nice touch of elegance to any dress.


This spring, whether you find yourself feeling all giddy inside saying I do or just contemplating where to plan your 1st date, remember that it’s probably the dopamine from all of Spring’s magical effects. Either way, make the best of the most enjoyable season of the year while looking good!

St. Patrick’s Day: Separating the Myths from the Facts

March 13th, 2013

shamrock

We’re all a bit Irish one day every year. On March 17, people across the US and Ireland will don green, wear shamrocks and celebrate the feast of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Always a day of great joy and good fun, there are stories abound regarding the legend of St. Patrick. And as with all great legends, somethings are true and others… well, let’s just say the facts have been stretched a bit.

Get ready for St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday with a rundown of the facts and myths told regarding St. Patrick:

MYTH: St. Patrick was Irish

Actually, St. Patrick was from Britain. He was taken as a slave from his homeland to Ireland. While tending sheep in his new country, Patrick converted to Christianity. After years in servitude, Patrick had a dream calling him to escape his captors and spread the Gospel to the Celtic people of the region. Although he wasn’t Irish, and evangelizing the people of Ireland was tough work, after his death, the legend of Patrick grew throughout Ireland – which remains a deeply Christian country to date. He would later be considered an honorary Irishman, as he was named the patron saint of the island in the century following his death.

FACT: St. Patrick used a shamrock to teach the Celts

It’s true. The three-leafed clover helped Patrick teach the Celtic and Gaelic peoples about the Holy Trinity. Botanists agree the clover that still dominates much of Ireland and Europe was around in the days of Patrick and very well could have been used by the saint.

MYTH: St. Patrick drove all the snakes from Ireland

Sadly, this is only a myth. While there were no snakes in Ireland after St. Patrick, there were likely none there before him. The small island surrounded by icy waters has never had a snake problem and likely this more a metaphor relating to Patrick’s driving out of the devil (commonly depicted as a serpent) and converting all of Ireland.

MYTH: St. Patrick wore green

If you’re daring enough to not wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, you might be risking a bit of a pinching from your friends and family. Many people think we wear green because the saint himself did so. In fact, Patrick likely wore blue according to scholars. Green was adopted due to Ireland being known as the “Emerald Isle.” Irish-Americans adopted this color to celebrate their patron saint’s feast day in remembrance of their home.

FACT: We’re all a bit lucky on St. Patrick’s Day

March Madness: Support Your Team With THE Ring!

March 6th, 2013

March Madness is soon to be upon us! The craziest 4 weeks of basketball beckons one question: Will your school be the last one standing? The tournament frenzy comes with a lot of stress for both the teams and the fans. Ranked schools from Men and Women’s Division 1 Basketball of the NCAA will play just one elimination game per bracket to decide who moves on in the tournament. Even more strenuous is the fact that college games are played with just two halves at 20 minutes each. This may be one of the reasons why college basketball fans are so loyal, because they know that in order for a team to win the tournament, they have to perform under clutch moments.

If you’re one of those fans, it may be time to upgrade your attire. And we’re not just talking about jackets and face paint that match your school colors and here. We’re talking about outfitting yourself in gear that not every fan would even think about!

Or how about a ring that bears the same name and resemblance as your school’s mascot? Tungsten World offers a more personal customization experience for customers to receive more control over what their ring can have engraved on! The best rings also have the best names, making it even more essential to purchase to differentiate yourself from the rest of the fans.

Although the USC Trojan’s Men’s Basketball is nationally unranked, fans will still cheer for them because of their unwavering loyalty to the red and gold. The Trojan tungsten ring is the perfect accessory for USC fans. Many consider themselves loyal to the end, which shows that the bond they share with their beloved school is stronger than any metal. Tungsten carbide is the strongest precious metal alloy known to man, and second only to diamonds on the Mohs Scale of Mineral Hardness.


The Michigan State Spartans are doing well this year, but will have to pull some major upsets if they insist on becoming the ultimate champions in the Men’s tournament. Luckily for you, one of our black diamond tungsten rings was named the Spartan, due it’s resilient look and tough appeal.


In Women’s NCAA Basketball, the Lady Flyers of Dayton are climbing up the ranks in hopes of clinching the championship by the end of the season. Though not exactly named the same, our camo rings all have aviator inspired names, such as the Interceptor pictures above. If you’re cheering on the Flyers, you’ll want this ring as your good luck charm the whole way!


The women of the North Carolina Tar Heels are making quite an impact in the rankings as well! With their mascot Rameses, the Lady Tar Heels hope to reach the finals this year. The Ramses black ceramic and tungsten ring is available for all Tar Heel fans to show their love for Rameses the mascot.

Whether your school is going to the Final Four or not, every avid fan knows that they’ll always root for their team through thick and thin. Show your school spirit by getting a one of a kind piece of tungsten jewelry that will last just as long as your loyalty.

NFL Combine: Going for that Ring

February 27th, 2013

40-yd dash

Do you remember what you were doing right out of college? Probably weren’t running a sub-5 40-yd dash or bench pressing 250 lbs. But that’s what some future NFL stars were up to this past week in Indianapolis.

Less than a month after the Super Bowl, over 300 former college players came together to participate in six workout drills meant to measure the raw talents and athletic ability they might bring to potential teams that draft them come April. These drills include: the shuttle run, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, 3-cone drill and, the sometimes dreaded, 40-yard dash.

All eyes were on big names like Manti Te’o, whose 40-yd time was less than stellar and likely cost him a few spots in the draft, Montee Ball of Wisconsin and Geno Smith of West Virginia. Each athlete looked impress potential teams and get their names as high up the draft board as possible. The higher the pick, the more money.

But money aside, what it really all boils down to is getting into the NFL and going for that ring. Baltimore Ravens fans and players know all about it. They held off the 49ers at this year’s Super Bowl and many players will be receiving their first championship ring. If it’s anything like the ones the Ravens picked up in 2000, it’s no wonder these players gut it out to reach their goal and flash the bling of a Super Bowl ring.

Ravens Super Bowl Ring

It just goes to show you, whether it’s championship rings or wedding rings, a man’s ring is important to him and he’ll do whatever it takes to get it. Whether it’s a championship ring all decked out in diamonds and precious metals or black wedding bands and camo wedding rings, a man’s ring is a status symbol and a point of pride.

Remember, it’s all about the ring. That ring can get your man to do stuff like this:
