Tungsten (tungsten carbide)

Tungsten is a rare metal with a high density. Tungsten is four times as hard as titanium and is a metal historically used in industrial and military settings.  The durability, near indestructability and lifetime sheen ensure that jewellery (typically rings) made of tungsten are designed to last.  – so sizing a ring after creation isn’t possible.
