Why Tungsten Carbide?
Tungsten is the only rare and exotic metal that can be permanently
polished. With gold, platinum and even tungsten bracelets and pendants, you
will notice varying degrees of scratching, denting and surface mars. However,
with Tungsten Carbide bracelets and pendants, the surface will maintain it's
original beautiful shiny finish. Many people also enjoy the heavy weight of
a Tungsten Carbide bracelet or pendant.

What's the difference between Tungsten jewelry and Tungsten Carbide
Some Tungsten bracelets and Tungsten pendants do not include Carbide. (Some
of the retailers still call them Tungsten Carbide however, so be careful.) A
Tungsten only piece is basically only steel. A Tungsten Carbide bracelet or
a Tungsten Carbide pendant can only be scratched by a diamond or a product containing
the mineral corundum. If you see a Tungsten piece that has carved details this
bracelet/pendant does not have Carbide - it is a tungsten only piece. Therefore,
it will scratch.
Should I be concerned with Cobalt in my jewelry?
YES, absolutely ! Many Tungsten and Tungsten Carbide bracelets and pendants
have Cobalt in them. The alloy containing Cobalt is easier to procure and bracelets
and pendants containing Cobalt are being commonly sold. However, Tungsten bracelets
and Tungsten pendants containing Cobalt will develop a negative react to your
skin. After a short time the Colbalt will develop oxidation spots that cannot
be removed or polished out. This is due to the Cobalt reacting to the human
body. You can easily prevent this from happening by purchasing one of our Cobalt
free Tungsten Carbide bracelets and pendants.
All of our Tungsten Carbide bracelets and Tungsten Carbide pendants
