Tungsten is an element and has been around since the late 16th century. For a long time, tungsten was primarily used for the advancement of civilization. It is the filament inside the incandescent light bulb and is used for making better cutting tool bits. Tungsten is 4x harder than titanium and 2x harder than steel.
While durable, it is important to take proper care of your tungsten jewelry. You can keep your tungsten shining bright by bringing it to your local Helzberg Diamonds store for a complimentary cleaning and inspection, or at home by using a solution of warm water and detergent-free soap with a soft bristled toothbrush.
