Wedding band shopping? Congrats! We at Faveable wish you the best on your new adventure.
There are many excellent reasons to tie the knot with a tungsten wedding band, but the perfect price tag is probably near the top of your list. You can snag one for as little as $15.
Tungsten wedding bands are naturally a gunmetal gray, but they can be plated white, black, or even gold or platinum.
A little about Tungsten itself:
Tungsten carbide is the most scratch-resistant metal on earth. Your ring will never bend or lose its shape (scoring a 9 on the Mohs scale. A diamond, the hardest substance on earth, is rated 10. Gold is 2.5.) Tungsten is hypoallergenic, so people with allergies to gold can wear tungsten jewelry.
So, where's it come from?
Tungsten is derived from the Swedish term for "heavy stone." On the periodic table, its symbol is W, stemming from its earlier name, Wolfram. Tungsten sets a record for the highest melting point of all metals: a mind-boggling 6,191.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
What's the bottom line?
Tungsten carbide rings are the top-selling metal for men’s wedding bands in America today. Read our top picks below!
This style of wedding band is one of the most popular for men in the current time. The classic black dome shape is never out of style.
It appears as though the black brushed matte plate is less resistant to scratches than natural gunmetal tungsten.
Whether you choose 7mm or 8mm, this simple and classic domed matte black band will never go out of style. Tungsten carbide combined with titanium makes this wedding ring for men strong yet comfortable and lightweight. This band looks identical to those you could find for hundreds of dollars more.
$12.99 for a wedding band that will last? No thought required on this one.
Diamonds are for men, too! This stylish band is affordable, and the diamonds shine brightly. A ring like this is also much less expensive on Amazon vs. in store.
A couple of reviewers reported their band breaking after months of use, but it doesn't seem to be the norm.
Seven conflict-free diamonds line the top of this silver tungsten carbide band. It's accented by a beveled edge and a brushed finish. The 0.2 carats are natural white diamonds in H-I I1-I2 quality. The width of the striking band is 8mm and it's 2.4mm thick. It also has a comfortable fit.
Of course, the price here is justified - there are real diamonds in this ring! That being said, you can get a less blinged out tungsten wedding band for a way lower cost.
If your man loves hunting or nature, there's no better ring to showcase his personality and love.
Sizes run a bit small because of the comfort-fit band. Consider ordering a half size down from your regular ring size.
If you're an avid hunter, or you're marrying a hunter, this is the best wedding band for you! A stunning tungsten ring features a comfort-fit flat top high polish blank band. The ring is inlaid with real Koa wood and then overlaid with two steel stag deer and trees.
It also comes with a free ring box and a 100% money-back guarantee!
Alternatives: If you like the idea of this ring, but aren't sure it's the one for you, you've got options. This one, for example, is the same ring with rose gold instead of silver. This one is backed by majestic mountains and evergreen trees. This wedding band is all silver and has hoofprints. Like fishing and dogs? Here's your perfect ring!
And, last but not least, our personal favorite: This simple antler arrow gold ring on Zebrawood.
While spending less than $40 on a ring sounds like a great deal (and it is!), you can get a Tungsten wedding band for less. That said, you can't get a ring inlaid with two stags for less.
Yellow gold is classic. You may even choose to replace an old, faded and scratched 14k band for this vibrant, scratch-resistant 24k plated band.
This is 24k gold, so it's very vibrant and golden - so golden it's almost orange. That is the color of 24k gold. Know this going into it and you won't be disappointed!
Also, it's best to avoid chemicals while wearing this ring as they can cause discoloration.
The casual observer will never guess this ring wasn't made of solid 24k gold. The 6mm domed ring is plated in 24k gold with a shiny polish and a comfortable fit. It's important to note that this gold is very golden, as that's what 24k carat gold looks like.
The classic ring comes with a handsome jewelry box for storage.
$20 or less can purchase you or your loved one this stunning tungsten carbide ring.
This heavy-duty band doesn't look or feel cheap and stands up to hard labor. Choose from silver, black or gold-plated tungsten.
A few reviewers feel it may be too thick and it separates their fingers too much. Most people don't seem to have a problem though.
This classic 8mm tungsten carbide band features a brushed grey top and a polished bevel edge. You can snag it in black, silver, or gold.
If you want something with a little more detail, consider checking out this similarly designed and priced ring with an imitated meteorite inlay, available with gold, silver or rose gold accents.
Alternatively, you may prefer a brushed silver ring without the bevel.
At less than $20, this is nearly unbeatable for the price of a men's tungsten wedding band! You can even save an extra 10% by applying the coupon on Amazon.

Silver and gold are old fashioned. This white tungsten wedding band encompasses everything that's loved about the tungsten wedding band: sleek, classic yet modern, inexpensive, and it comes in all different sizes - not only ring sizes, but thickness (in millimeters) as well.
It has a heavy feel to it, similar to gold. This ring looks and feels like white gold except it's much stronger and much less expensive.
This ring is handsome in both looks and price! Who would have thought you could score a wedding band for under $20?
Already have a wedding band? This is your perfect "get dirty" wedding band. Going on vacation and don't want to bring your real one? Labor intensive job? It's okay, you can buy this for less than $20 and wear it for those times you can't guarantee your wedding band stays safe.
This ring will last a very long time, so it's definitely safe to keep it as your "every day" band too, of course!
