What is Better About Tungsten Carbide When Compared to Tungsten?

Tungsten and Tungsten Carbide Rings

Is there a difference between jewelry made just with tungsten when compared to jewelry made with tungsten carbide?

If a piece of jewelry, such as a ring, is sold strictly as tungsten only, then it is basically just a steel ring. Tungsten without carbide can be scratched. Tungsten carbide rings and jewelry should not scratch because the element of carbide is present. If you purchase what you believe to be a tungsten carbide ring but the ring has been carved then it isn't a true tungsten carbide ring.

Note: carbide is not an element. Carbon is the element that pairs with tungsten.
