Tantalum is very scratch resistant (all rings will scratch to some degree) and completely crack resistant, which makes it an excellent choice for those with a busy and active lifestyle.
Tantalum’s physical appearance is also a big draw card. It is a greyish metal with a of bluish shade that gives it such as truly unique look. It also comes at a weight which is similar to that of platinum, giving it that luxurious feel, but without the price tag.
