The hardest metal used in jewelry making, tungsten carbide rings are the most scratch resistant (although not 100% scratch proof) rings) available! Tungsten by itself is extremely strong (as strong as titanium) but when carbon is added to create an alloy, it becomes 3 to 5 times harder.
Our black tungsten rings are created by heat-treating the standard gray ring with an alloy of black titanium. If you love the idea of a black ring, but are very active with your hands, you might want to consider black ceramic or zirconium, as the surface of black tungsten is not scratch-proof. If the finish were to scratch off over time it can always be re-applied by the manufacturer for a nominal fee.
