You an get a ‘traditional’ wedding ring shape and size in tungsten I believe. I’m not 100% about matching the metal colors, because I don’t know what color tungsten is typically. 

 

The hardness of tungsten isn’t crazy high but it is very resilient and I would be concerned about it potentially wearing the engagment ring if they weren’t a tight fit and banged up against eachother or spun.

Congratulations on your engagement! Sooo exciting!  Tungsten means “heavy metal” By definition.  Ive read somewhere before i think on a post in the hive about not suggesting wearing tungsten with ither metals as it could damage the other softer ring, assuming it were gold.  Ive never seen an engagement ring made of tungsten. I’ll try and google and see what i find.

All the tungsten rings i can find are wedding bands, so maybe they dont make traditional engagement rings in tungsten.

Tungsten is hard and scratch resistant, but also brittle.  If you drop a tungsten ring on a cement or tile floor, it is possible to chip or break the tungsten ring, which is why they do not make engagement rings out of tungsten. 

I would not recommend wearing a tungsten ring next to a gold band just like the PP said…the tungsten is harder than gold or platinum and will wear away the other precious metal. 

Also, tungsten is a gunmetal gray color and is darker than white gold or platinum.

To find a womens tungsten e-ring, your going to have to look online for them. I have never seen one in a jewelry store. But they have some great very modern styles in tungsten.
