Tungsten Carbide is a uniquely forged metal used in luxury watches that is perfect for a man’s active lifestyle. It’s strong, scratch resistant and will maintain its finish over time with normal use.
Triton Tungsten Carbide TC.850 actually stands for a formula consisting of approximately 85% Tungsten Carbide, yielding a strong, heavy weight, hypoallergenic and tarnish resistant material. This uniquely forged metal is perfect for a day to day activity
Triton TC.850 utilizes exclusive patented nano-technology coatings applied to the surface of the metal using a unique method that results in high scratch-resistance, high wear-resistance and increased hardness and durability. The patented metal’s micro grain structure provides tighter, more compressed molecules, creating the best balance between hardness and its lustrous finish.
Tungsten Carbide is the most scratch resistant metal in the jewelry and bridal industries. The materials that combine to make Tungsten Carbide retain their finish over time with normal use. All colors of Tungsten Carbide (black, white, classic gray, yellow & rose) are scratch resistant.
At 1300 Vickers, or over 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, Triton’s Tungsten Carbide TC.850™ is the hardest material available in bands behind a diamond. In comparison, Triton’s Tungsten Carbide TC.850 is 10 times harder than 18K gold and has substantial, luxurious weight similar to platinum.
Tungsten Carbide’s natural color is a deep gray. Triton’s Tungsten Carbide is a lustrous gray due to our TC.850™ patented content. Triton offers TC.850 in 5 colors: white, black, classic gray, yellow & rose.
Triton’s white Tungsten Carbide obtains its lustrous color through a patented nano-technology multi-layered coating applied to the surface of the metal. The proprietary coating process is specifically designed to enhance the color and provide extra protection and durability to prolong the life and luster of TC.850™ white. Triton’s white Tungsten Carbide is highly scratch, tarnish, wear and fade-resistant and designed to last. (US Patent No. 8,932,437 B2 / 8,927,107 B2 / 8,956,510 B2)
Yellow & rose Tungsten Carbide obtain their colors through a proprietary metal blend that includes yellow & rose gold that helps provide the lustrous look of precious yellow & rose gold with the performance of TC.850™. The proprietary metal blend is applied using the same patented multi-layer technical bonding process as white Tungsten Carbide.
Yellow & rose TC.850™ colors are sealed with a proprietary semi-translucent nano-technology coating that is comprised of rare earth metals and applied using a unique method to help sustain the vibrant and lustrous colors. The proprietary coating and process is specifically designed to enhance the color and provide extra protection and durability to prolong the life and luster of TC.850 yellow and rose.
The rich luxurious color of black Tungsten Carbide results from a durable black Titanium Carbide deposit that is applied using a state of the art process that deposits thin layers of color in a high temperature, vacuum environment.
Laser engraving can be applied to any color – white, classic gray, black, yellow or rose – in the Triton TC.850™ Tungsten Carbide collection.

While not wearing your Tungsten Carbide ring, store it separately in a small pouch or bag so it will not scratch other, softer metal jewelry items. To clean your Tungsten Carbide ring, mix a few drops of mild detergent (household soap works well) with warm water, dampen a soft cloth with the mixture and rub the surface of the ring to remove dirt and oil. You can then use a cotton swab to clean any hard to reach grooves or around diamonds. Rinse with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. As with all jewelry, avoid contact with any harsh chemicals including household products such as ammonia, bleach and chlorine. If your Tungsten Carbide ring does come in contact with any of the above chemicals, clean the ring right away using the above cleaning instructions.
Yes, you can safely remove a Tungsten Carbide ring utilizing a vice grip removal method. This safe and simple process calls for a vice grip to be placed firmly over the ring with increasing force applied by gradually increasing the pressure of the vice grip. As the pressure increases the ring will eventually crack and can be removed safely from the finger.
