Tungsten wedding bands were first launched as wedding band alternatives almost eight years ago. A lot has changed since then. Tungsten wedding rings
have transformed from classic wedding bands to the intricately designed bands that we know today.

were made out of practicality? Tungsten carbide is one of the toughest materials around, making it the perfect material for couples with jobs in welding and construction. It is durable and reputed to be the most scratch-free material around. So, no matter how hot and busy it gets at work, you can rest assured that your tungsten wedding ring
So, are you ready to pick the perfect wedding bands for one of the most special day in your life? Here’s how to choose the best tungsten wedding bands for you and your partner.
Know what you want.
The first thing that you need to do before picking a wedding ring is to know what you want. Don’t go in there without an idea of the look and make of the wedding bands that are perfect for you and your partner. Why? Because, you’ll find yourself swimming in so many tungsten wedding rings. If you go in there without any inkling of what you want, it might take you forever to look through your wedding ring options to find the perfect one.
So, do some research first. Talk to your partner about the perfect wedding ring to seal your love and commitment. Would you like something simple? Or, do you want something ornate? Do you want a silver, metallic or gold colored ring? Do you want it to be made of gold, platinum or tungsten?
Plan for your engagement and wedding ring at the same time.
Many couples want their engagement and tungsten wedding rings to coordinate. These two rings are often worn side by side. So, how they look together matters. It might be a good idea to search for coordinated rings. Or, talk to a supplier, like Forever Metals, and we can help you find matching rings.
Do your ring search early.
Give yourself about three months head start when searching for the perfect tungsten wedding rings. It is not just about searching and buying rings. You need to try them (several tungsten wedding rings!) on. Plus, if you want custom rings for your wedding, you need more time. This way, you don’t have to rush your wedding ring supplier. There’s more time to perfect the look of your rings.
Don’t be afraid to mix things up.
So, you are eyeing a particular style while your partner wants another. Don’t worry about this! You can always mix things up. Braided wedding bands can be a good compromise, such that you each get different styled rings that still go together.
Have a budget in mind.
Shopping for the perfect wedding bands can be a lot of fun – which makes it easy to get in all the excitement. You can easily overspend!
So, it is best to have a budget in mind. Typically, tungsten wedding rings
take about 3% of your overall wedding budget.
Talk to Forever Metals about your options, given your budget. Rings with simple designs cost less than those with intricate designs. Engravings also add to the cost. Costing is usually based on the number of letters, font, and whether engraving was done by a machine or by hand.
Choose a ring based on your lifestyle.
Keep in mind that you will likely wear your wedding rings all the time. So, have your lifestyle in mind when you choose them. Like we said earlier, tungsten rings came to be because of its durability and heat resistance, which fit the needs of those in the construction industry. In the same way, if you work with your hands, you might want to keep your rings simple, sans gemstones and carvings.
Your promise is forever so your rings should be too.
While carving a Pokemon on your rings seems like a good idea now, think about the future when no one remembers what that is. Thirty years forward, classic designs and personalized carvings are the ones with the staying power. Keep this in mind when deciding on a design for your rings.
Get rings that are right-sized.
Our fingers swell and contract naturally, depending on heat, cold, weight and water retention conditions. The size of the rings that you pick today factors into how this will fit in the future through all these differing conditions.
So, get sized at the right time. Make sure that your body’s temperature is normal, and you’re calm and not retaining too much water. In general, it’s a no-no to get sized very early in the morning, when it’s extremely cold or not, or right after exercise.

How to Care for Your Wedding Ring
Your tungsten wedding rings are some of the best possible rings to pick to seal your commitment. Of course, because these rings mean forever, you should know how to properly care for them. Your wedding bands can stay with you for a long time, with proper care.
Tungsten wedding rings are some of the toughest rings you’ll find but they’re sensitive to chemicals. So, your care should keep this in mind.
A dirty tungsten wedding ring is easy to clean. All you need is soap and water, and you’re good to go. Make sure to use gentle detergent. Better yet, place a few drops of your detergent into a bowl of warm water, and then soak your ring in it. In a few minutes, the dirt and grime will fall off. Have a buffing cloth ready to better clean and dry off your ring.
Sometimes, detergent and water might not be enough. In these cases, get a specialty tarnish remover that is especially made for tungsten wedding rings. This includes an applicator to use on your rings. After doing this, wipe off the ring with your buffing cloth. Proceed to the soap and water routine to finish off your ring care.
You might experience false scratches on your tungsten wedding rings. False scratches seem like real scratches. But, remember that tungsten is one of the most durable metals around. The only material that could scratch it is a diamond.
In many cases, these scratches are just material residue from items your rings got in contact with. Often, simply rubbing your rings off with a buffing cloth works to remove these scratches. If not, proceed with using either soap and water or a tungsten ring tarnish remover.
And there you go. This is how you make your tungsten wedding rings last forever. Diligent care is all that you need.
