FAQ - Zirconium

What is zirconium?

Zirconium is a very special metal. It's a non-allergenic, corrosion resistant metal that is highly scratch resistant and naturally black in colour. Finally! A naturally black metal for us to use in our rings.  

The result is a perfect men's wedding ring that never loses it's lustre, is super scratch resistant, 100% non allergenic, and can be worn with incredible comfort.


So what are the benefits of a zirconium ring over another metal?

Our rings have been designed from the ground up to be rings that men want to wear. We've chosen tungsten and zirconium for their incredible durability, scratch resistance, weight, non allergenic properties and most of all their comfort. 
All of our men's wedding rings come with a built in comfort fit. The comfort fit, is not only sleek and smooth on the finger, but it means that your finger's natural swelling and contracting is accommodated throughout the year. No strangling or pinching feelings with our rings. 
Our men's wedding rings are also all 100% non-allergenic. Both Tungsten & zirconium are incredibly stable and unreactive, and we don't use any nasty chemicals like cobalt in our sintering processes.  As a result, our rings also don't cause any unnatural stains or skin discolouration either.


Is my Zirconium ring really 'unbreakable'?

No. Zirconium rings can be broken or damaged, but because of their hardness they are incredibly scratch resistant. That said, you can chip or crack your ring when applying lateral force to your ring, however this is very unlikely to happen. 'Unbreakable Man' is simply the name of our online store, and it should NOT be interpreted that our rings will be, in fact, unbreakable. 
Although Tungsten Carbide is an extremely resilient material, it is susceptible to breaking from things like:
  • Opening of bottles with the ring;
  • Throwing the ring on the floor;
  • Dropping the ring from height; or
  • Any other activity for which the ring was not designed.


Can my Zirconium ring be removed in an emergency?

Zirconium rings are actually much safer than most rings made from other metals because of their ability to break. Tungsten Carbide rings do not bend. As a result, when extreme pressure is applied to a tungsten ring, it will break - without harming the finger. Gold and other metals that bend can harm the finger, whereas tungsten carbide may protect it in some instances. Thus a Tungsten Carbide ring is a much safer choice.


Is Zirconium better than Tungsten?

Zirconium is a more lightweight metal than Tungsten, which some men do prefer over the heaviness of a Tungsten ring. Zirconium rings are also naturally black in colour, which means that Zirconium rings maintain their black colouring. Black Tungsten Rings however are plated black and that plating will show the natural Tungsten silver colour over time. 
Both Tungsten & Zirconium are incredibly durable, super scratch resistant and very comfortable though. 


How can I get my finger sized?

You can visit any local jeweller to have your finger sized. When sizing your finger at a jeweller always remember to tell them to size your finger according to the following:
 - 6mm/8mm width ring
 - Comfort fit

Can I resize a Zirconium ring?

Zirconium rings cannot physically be resized because of their physical properties. However, we do offer a 2 year resize on our Zirconium rings. If you order the incorrect size, we can also help you out with an exchange within 7 working days of receiving your ring (an exchange fee will apply). Visit our Returns & Exchanges page for more details.

  • Engraved rings (unless you pay for the engraving to be re-done)
  • Custom manufactured rings

  • Rings that have been discontinued
  • Ring sizes that we no longer stock
  • Sale items

How do I clean and polish my Zirconium ring?

All you need is a little water, some gentle soap and a cloth. There is no need to polish your Zirconium ring with any special chemicals or jewellery cleaners. Being such a hardy metal, Our Zirconium rings never lose their lustre.
