A thin band of gold provides a beautiful contrast to the surrounding silver color of tungsten carbide in our Gold Inlay Wedding Bands. Pure precious metal bands are gorgeous, but can become scratched and dinged up over time. Tungsten carbide is a new advanced metallic substance that can resist scratches much better than precious metal. When highly polished, it is difficult to tell the difference between tungsten and silver. For people who prefer a precious metal contrast, the gold inlay provides a splash of color that makes these wedding bands the best of both worlds.
