Palladium is a naturally white metal with a shiny finish and its’ popularity is steadily increasing in engagement and wedding ring designs.
Tungsten or tungsten carbide as it is better referred to is the hardest metal used in wedding rings. Some even claim it to be an “indestructible” metal as its reputation for durability is second to none. It is virtually scratch proof and will retain its shineforever.
Tungsten wedding rings come in many designs, can be mixed with other alloys, can be lasered or engraved for amazing designs and can be inlaid with diamonds, wood or other materials.
