Why Tungsten Jewelry Makes a Great Gift

Tungsten carbide has become increasingly popular in contemporary jewelry. Although the metal itself was originally discovered in 1781, it was not commonly used until the early 20th century. Then, in the 1920s and 1930s, tungsten and tungsten alloys began to be regularly used for industrial applications, such as the milling and cutting of iron and steel. Later, during World War II, tungsten was used in the manufacture of weapons.
