FH is getting a tungsten band, but he doesn’t have it yet so I can’t say this for sure, but I’m pretty sure it’s hard to scratch tungsten.

Not sure if there is a difference between Tungsten and Tungsten Carbide.  But I heard that Tungsten is extremely difficult to scratch.  However, it is also impossible to resize…and it is susceptible to shattering if dropped on a hard surface.

@Nicole121212:  My husband has the exact same ring and he bangs it on everything lol, to this date there is not a scratch on it. Tungsten is VERY strong

We have been married for 3 years…no scratching or shattering; his ring looks as brand news as the day i put it on his finger:) Downsides are that it is impossible to resize, difficult to engrave and does need to be shattered (as opposed to cut) to get it off one’s finger if there was an accident/injury that made it necessary to remove the ring. All in all though, we love the ring and it’s reasonably priced as well.

My husband have a Tungsten Carbide Two Toned Black and it still looks good as new.  No scratches.  October 15th will be our 1st wedding anniversary.

My husband has a tungsten carbide ring.  He does everything with it on and there is not one scratch on it.  It looks like brand new.

No, it doesn’t scratch, but it can shatter. Are the reviews for this specific ring? Maybe the dealer is not reliable…? We got ours on amazon for around $30 and the quality is excellent. My husband is an engineer & not a scratch.
