Tungsten rings can be for an occasion. They used to only be used for a wedding or anniversary gift. Now these rings are being worn as promise rings, engagement rings, just about everything. There are a lot of people that love the fact that they can work with their hands all day without worrying about scratching their ring. So now there are more designs coming out for every occasion. There are even cufflinks, pendants and watches made out of tungsten. It is a great metal that is used for more than industrial tools.
If you can afford a precious metal you can look at the great selection of gold rings. Gold has been used for a very long time. There are many different types of gold. The three types most commonly used in jewelry is 10 karat, 14 karat, and 18 karat. 10 karat is the least pure and 18 karat is the most. 14 karat gold is 100 percent pure gold. The problem with 24 karat is that it is very soft. So it doesn’t hold up or wear very well.
