Tungsten rings cannot be resized due to the nature of tungsten being such a hard, dense metal.

Tungsten rings not being able to be resized is not a disadvantage. The costs associated with resizing will cost you material and jewelers labor costs.

Comfort fit is difficult for jewelers to maintain that perfect belly in the inner diameter when trying to add or remove metal. Another advantage of not being able to resize a tungsten ring is that you will always be rest assured that a smashed finger or a decade old ring isn't going to bend out of shape or assert unwanted pressures on your finger. A tungsten ring will remain round in shape for a lifetime as opposed to an oval shape as most precious metal rings take to the form of.
