My finance really likes this wedding band that he found on amazon made out of tungsten carbide in a dragon celtic design. It’s extremely inexpensive and I don’t mind getting him a more expensive one (but it’s about what he likes).
I was just wondering if the material holds up over time, etc. Any ring he wears is going to see a lot of abuse.

@Pinkeed: My husband chose tungsten carbide because he knew he would beat his ring up. You can’t beat up tungsten. He wears his all the time, never takes it off. He works on cars and does all kinds of other stuff with it on. Not a scratch on it.

DH has tungsten and I bought it on etsy for very cheap. It’s the only thing that won’t scratch or break. He didn’t want diamonds or anything because he’s a refrigeration technician and is always using his hands! So far so good

Consider that the upside is that it is really cheap, but the downside is that it cannot be sized- you have to buy an entirely different ring if his ringsize changes.
If he likes it, I say go for it! Worst case scenario is that you replace with something of equal or lesser value later.

Thanks ladies! 🙂
He deals with lots of chemicals and cars, so I’m glad to hear that the material lasts.
I’m going to tell him to go with it. It won’t be a big deal if I have to buy a new one since it didn’t cost much.

My fiance is a machinist and the wedding band we purchased is tungsten carbide as well. Some of his co-workers have tungsten and he said they look brand new after being beaten all day. I believe we paid $150 (plus warranty) for his at Zales.. although it is just a plain, thin tungsten band. Plus, my friend’s husband has Titanium and they’ve been married since November and she said it looks terrible and is already planning to buy him a new band.
