Not all tungsten rings are created equal. Forever Metals Metal Jewelry Quality.

Metal Jewelry Quality.

Forever Metals has manufactured and sold the very finest quality wedding bands available. Forever Metals uses only those compositions that make sense and post the compositions for all to review. Each ring made is one of a kind, and many of our rings are individually crafted to customer specifications.

The increase of body piercing has brought attention to those elements that oxidize, cause rashes or irritate the skin. Forever Metals does not sell inferior quality rings, and this is backed up with a return policy that allows our customers the opportunity to see and wear the rings for themselves. There are no questions asked if you wish to return a wedding band within the return policy calendar. In addition, Forever Metals offers a lifetime warranty against breakage, chipping, or fracture of a stainless steel, titanium, or tungsten carbide ring. Since scratching is probable in titanium and stainless steel products, Forever Metals does not warrant the finish or scratching of a surface. If you’re bored of an engagement ring 2 years or even 50 years down the road, Forever Metals offers an exchange policy offering a chance to exchange a ring for full value towards the purchase of a new ring. Please see our exchange policy for details.

Forever Metals combines traditional precious metals with tungsten carbide to create a unique piece of jewelry with a style, polish, and texture that will last a lifetime. We offer tungsten carbide wedding bands with precious metal inlays of sterling silver, platinum, yellow, white, gold, and copper. The tungsten carbide portion of the ring will maintain its original polish and luster for life, while the softer inlaid precious metals will eventually develop a textured appearance over time, creating an attractive contrast against the lasting polish of the tungsten carbide.

Tungsten Carbide Quality

Forever Metals composition is 84% of tungsten and 16% of carbon and nickel. Our Tungsten carbide rings are made with superior nickel-binder alloy instead of being made from pure tungsten or with the cobalt-binder alloy. Nickel-binder alloys are superior for several reasons; Nickel-binder tungsten carbide is hypoallergenic, chemically inert and therefore will not oxidize, cause rashes, or irritate the skin. We do not use the compound cobalt as it can have an adverse reaction with the wearer’s skin, sometimes causing a rash. Cobalt bonds with oils in the skin resulting in oxidation. The oxidation appears similar to tarnished silver, but cannot be removed by polishing or grinding. Nickel, on the other hand, does not bond with oil and therefore does not oxidize.

Many jewelers offer pure tungsten wedding bands which lack the hardness of tungsten carbide and can scratch quite easily. Some offer tungsten rings made with cobalt binder because it is cheaper to produce than nickel-binder carbide. We caution you against buying from a jeweler that doesn't specify that their tungsten wedding bands are made with the nickel binder alloy.

Commercially Pure Titanium Quality

Forever Metals composition uses CP T1 & T2 grade 2 in all of our gray titanium products. We found it to be the ideal balance between titanium's hardness and workability. It can be cut off, refinished, and engraved, yet it is resistant to marring and polishes well. Forever Metals uses commercially pure titanium (CP) that has been endorsed world wide.

Aircraft Grade Titanium Quality

Forever Metals does not endorse aircraft grade titanium due to safety issues and it being an overall hard material to work with. Aircraft grade titanium has many more inconsistencies overall when working with a harder substance and aircraft titanium is not pure so it does not have other advantages as CP titanium has.

Stainless Steel Quality

Forever Metals composition for our stainless steel rings is 316L: 0Cr14Ni9Mo2. Our stainless steel rings are not made for their durability or their workability but they are made for their unique look. The unique look will not hold up as well as Tungsten Carbide or will not have the light weight to hardness ratio that titanium has. However, stainless steel does have a unique look that will last forever. For the cost, stainless steel ring may be a practical choice. Stainless Steel rings also offer as a great choice for groomsmen gifts and for graduation gifts.
