Breaking Barriers and Setting Standards

Monday, 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!

Monday, 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!

Rose Gold Blooms in Spring!

Friday, 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!

March Madness: Support Your Team With THE Ring!

Wednesday, 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.

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.

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.

Lent 2013: Don’t Give Up Quality

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

You know what Lent means: Ashes on people’s foreheads, Facebook posts about people giving up meat for their 40 days of fasting, and Filet-O-Fish Fridays at the Golden Arches. We know it’s hard to give up something that you’re used to. During Lent, believers prepare themselves to observe the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ through prayer, penance, and self-denial. Certain luxuries are given up, such as eating a certain food (beef, chicken, pork) or engaging in a certain activity (shopping, playing video games).

If there’s one thing you shouldn’t give up for your lent fasting, it’s quality. For nourishment, the absence of meat makes it much harder to go to your favorite fast food chain. In this case, home cooked meals filled with vegetables and fruits will not only fit within your boundaries, but will also give your body healthy, quality nutrition that it so desperately needs. For fashion, some people give up wearing gold and diamonds, and wear copper and silver-colored jewelry only during lent instead. Although all other precious metals are seen as a step down in value from gold and diamonds, there is no need to think that quality does not exist outside of them. Tungsten carbide jewelry, for instance, presents a startling case for quality among precious metals. Tungsten rings have the durable, scratch resistant shine that most men and women cannot find in more traditional materials. Add in fashionable designs, affordable prices, and Tungsten World’s Lifetime Replacement Program, and you have a recipe for quality that is hard to beat. Need some proof? Exhibit A:

The Centurion: A round, tungsten carbide ring with a masterfully crafted argentium silver inlay inserted in. Simplicity meets complexity, all at a price that beckons curiosity ($399 at TungstenWorld.com, more than $150 cheaper than other retailers). Need more proof? Exhibit B:

The Illusion: An unusual yet finely engraved tungsten ring. Though puzzling in design, the $199 price tag requires no second thought.

Next year, when you start to wonder what to give up for lent, remember what not to deprive yourself of: Quality.

Friday, August 31st, 2012

How did you first hear of tungsten? Maybe a friend or a co-worker swore by their tungsten wedding bands and their durability.

In the wedding and jewelry industries, tungsten has garnered a reputation as the most durable alternative metal. Tungsten is now synonymous with forever wedding bands. But you might be surprised at how many other things tungsten has been utilized in, and for quite some time! Don’t forget, tungsten has been a known element for over 200 years.

The History of Tungsten

Here are a few things you may not know that have benefited from the use of tungsten:

- Light Bulb
Light Bulbs: When Thomas Edison developed the light bulb, he went through many types of filaments before settling on tungsten as the longest lasting for his new invention. Many bulbs today still use tungsten filaments over 100 years later.

- Tungsten Iridium Sunglasses
Sunglasses: Yup, your shades could have tungsten in the lenses. Sunglass experts like Oakley have been using tungsten iridium lenses to perfect the polarized lenses in sunglasses. Need a pair to cut down the glare of your tungsten wedding rings’ high polish shine? Try these tungsten iridium lenses.

- Tungsten Drill Bits
Tungsten Drill Bits: Builders have been using tungsten in their drill bits for years. The hardness of tungsten is simply unparalleled and great for all kinds of practical uses on the job site.

10 Must-haves for a Groom on the Big Day

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Here’s a fun one for your Monday. We put together a list of the 10 must-haves for a groom on his wedding day. Some are absolutely essential, some are no-brainers, and some are just funny.

Did you remember these on your big day?

10. Dress Socks- Leave the white athletic socks at home, guys. Those white cotton socks are not going to look good with your tux. Trust us.

9. Watch- Don’t be late on your wedding day!

8. Directions- Sure you picked out the venue, but with the hundreds of things on your mind on your wedding day, a set of directions just in case might be prudent.

7. Tie- Whether it’s a bow tie or traditional tie, we know you hate wearing them and you’re going to only put it on at the very last minute. Just be sure you have it with you. Running home to get it before the ceremony starts would be no fun.

6. Bride’s gift- It’s traditional for bride and groom to exchange gifts before the wedding. We recommend something she can wear during the wedding like a tungsten heart pendant, but whatever you decide to get for her, don’t forget it. And wrap it nicely, too!

5. Cellphone- You never leave home without it anyways, right? Just be sure it’s off during the ceremony.

4. Vows- Especially if you wrote your own, a few note cards will fit nicely in your pocket and there’s no shame taking them out of you need them.

3. Deodorant- You don’t want to sweat through your tux and after the long night you’ll spend dancing after the ceremony, your bride will thank you.

2. Groomsmen Gifts- Another tradition, get the guys backing you up something nice to wear as a thank you. Watches are a classy gift or even matching cufflinks for them to wear during the ceremony.

1. The Wedding Rings- A million and one things on your mind and you forget the wedding rings? Don’t be that groom. You and your bride are the stars of the day, but your durable tungsten wedding bands are the symbol that seals the deal.

Let’s Play the Match Game

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

To Match or not to match? It may be a question you’ve been pondering for some time leading up to you wedding ceremony. Some people will tell you, absolutely yes, the bride and groom’s wedding rings should match in displaying the solidarity of your love. While others are of the philosophy that two individuals should get rings that match their individual style. The truth is… either way, you can’t go wrong!

But for those of you considering matching wedding band sets, Tungsten World does have an extensive collection of women’s and men’s wedding bands in varying widths, giving you the perfect matching pair of rings with the most comfortable widths for a man or lady’s hand.

MATTINO 8mm Brushed Tungsten Wedding Band

MATISSE 6mm Brushed Tungsten Wedding Band

For example, take our MATTINO. It’s one of our most popular tungsten wedding bands for men with its raised top and matte brushed finished. But coming in a 8mm width, many women may think the band is just too wide, but they still want a matching band to pair with their husband’s wedding band. Because of this, the MATISSE 6mm brushed wedding band is completes the perfect pair of wedding bands for men and women:

The MATTINO/MATISSE matching set is just one of many identical sets found on at www.tungstenworld.com though. Coming in 6mm and 8mm widths couples can get matching tungsten diamond wedding bands, as well as tungsten rings with precious metal inlays.

But what if identical matching isn’t quite your thing? Fear not! Tungsten World has wedding bands that are matching and pair well, without being completely identical. For instance, maybe you’d prefer a set of wedding bands with alternating tungsten and black ceramic styling:

IMPERIAL Black Ceramic and Tungsten Wedding Ring

PARAGON Tungsten and Black Ceramic Wedding Ring

With their alternating tungsten and black ceramic styling, the PARAGON and IMPERIAL are the matching wedding band set for the couple that doesn’t want to be too matching. Just one of the many ideas for matching wedding sets at Tungsten World. If you’re interested in even more matching wedding band info, visit our Resource page on matching wedding sets HERE.
