Traditional methods of engraving Tungsten Rings entails “chiselling” or “etching” into the material of the ring to add the requested text directly into the metal. And while this is easily done on softer, traditional metals like gold, silver and platinum, tungsten is over ten times the hardness of 18k gold!
