myself and FI got a gift card for 2 free rings from here and FI needs some inspiration on how titanium and or tugsten rings look on an actual person. so i need some pics(and stats if you know them) so he can get a better idea of what the rings will look like and will stop putting of picking a ring!
edit: FI wears a size 10 ring and works with his hands a lot working on cars, computer, and cooking.

6mm tungsten on a size 10 finger. Mr. LK loves his ring and after 6 months of daily wear and tear, it doesn’t have a single blemish.

If he works around cars and is getting tungsten then you NEED to watch this video..that metal is super hard to cut off so the only way that you can get it off is shown in the video

Tungsten is a really strong metal…perhaps too strong.
Downside is – it is impossible to size and can’t be cut off if the situation ever arises. My FI originally wanted tungsten but decided against it for that reason. He’d rather keep his finger.

@Kate0558: From what we’ve been told, the latter of those two are myths. Since metals like Tunsgent and titanium are popular now, nearly all ERs have the proper tools to cut off tungsten. Also, tungsten is made with several “give”points in it, so if the hand is crushed or smashed, the ring will automatically shatter. If you are near or going to a level 1 or 2 trauma center (ER), they will absolutely have the tools to get the ring off of you…but even the video link above shows how you can get one off in an emergency with pliers. The “you’ll lose a finger” thing is untrue!
