Are tungsten rings made of cobalt?
Why go for a cobalt free ring made of tungsten?
In emergency situations, can i remove my tungsten ring?
Yes, by following these steps:
Using vice grip-pliers, clamp the pliers loosely onto the ring and push squeeze. Remove the pliers, then 1/4 turn tighten the pliers. Clamp the pliers on the ring again and push down hard. Continue this method until a crack is heard. At that point, remove the vice-grip pliers and turn the your ring slightly on your finger. Repeat these steps until the material breaks away. Simple and easy!

What is MOHS SCALE and what does that have to do with rings?
The Mohs Scale of mineral hardness is a method of measuring the strength of the ring. The higher the number on the Mohs Scale, the stronger the ring, thus it is less likely to bend or scratch, whereas a metal such as gold, which might have a number of 3 on a Mohs Scale, this means it can bend or scratch more easily than, for example, a Mohs Scale titanium ring with a number of 6. Check the table below for a list of common metals used in jewellery production with their corresponding Mohs scale numbers:
Consequently, if you select a gold band but live rather an active lifestyle, you are more likely to see significant scratching or damage on the ring than if you choose a titanium ring. And, with a ring made from titanium, you’re more likely to see bending & scratching than with Tungsten Carbide.
Putting this into perpespective in a nutshell
A diamond with a Mohs Scale of 10 is four times tougher than tungsten carbide, which is a Mohs Scale of 9, which makes tungsten carbide ten to fifteen times harder than titanium. Not only are tungsten carbide rings stylish and comfortable but they will NEVER bend and can ONLY be scratched by diamonds.
