My fiance is interested in a tungsten ring, so I’ve been looking around at them. Anyone’s husband or FH have one? If so, where did you buy it? Any online sources? Does he like it? We looked at them at a local jeweler this weekend, but I think we can get a better price online somewhere.

We bought his online! We just got it last week and he loves it. 🙂

We got his from Gordon’s and he (and I) love it!!
We both wanted something "manly" for him and we had done a lot of research on types of rings. Surprisingly, while platinum is the most expensive, it’s also the easiest to scratch. Tungsten and titanium are very sturdy. His is a little darker than most rings, but it has this really cool feel to it.
We also got lucky when we bought it, because since tungsten can’t be resized, you either have to order it (which takes MONTHS) or just take what they have at the store. One day, we just decided to pop into Gordon’s and found his exact size!! 🙂
I say go for it!

We just bought a tungsten ring for my FI from Kay Jewelers. It was less than $200, only takes 25 days to arrive, and they have suprisingly nice customer service.

We looked at tungsten rings when we were ring shopping, I love the look (and price) of them! We almost bought one because they are quite a bit cheaper than gold or platinum and don’t scratch. However, because they are impossible to resize we decided against it.
One of my girlfriend’s husband’s has a tungsten ring and is only able to wear it in the winter, as in the summer his fingers swell and the band becomes too tight. If you do decide on tungsten, make sure the band is big enough that it will fit in the summer too!!!

I got one on eBay for 7 bucks. Seriously, that includes shipping. It’s perfect and basically indestructable.

Jared Galleria has them, you could check them out. However, keep in mind that they can NEVER be resized. This was our biggest turnoff, and what strayed us away from purchasing one.
Good luck and happy shopping!
(And if you go to Jared, you’re fiance can say, "She went to Jared!!"…haha. Love those commercials)

overstock.com has some tungsten rings. I just ordered one for my fiance that he really liked. As a matter of fact, it should be delivered today. I’ll let you know how it is and if he loves it. The price is fantastic!

Good call on ebay, and I forgot they couldn’t be resized. We’ll probably look for his ring in the states in June, because paying in US dollars is more fun than pounds.

My fiance hates jewelry, didn’t want anything flashy, and deep down I think would rather wear no ring at all. I thought ring shopping for him would take a year, so we started early. We went two places, he fell in love with a tungsten ring and never looked back. I thought he would balk at the heavy weight, but he said once it’s on your finger, you can’t really tell. He’s excited that he can’t hurt his new ring and I think he’s really quite pleased with the look of it. We got it at a jewelry mart (one of thoes big places that houses several vendors) for a a third the price we would have had to pay at Robbins Bros. It’s the only wedding-related thing my FI hasn’t complained about the price of!

We bought a tungsten ring from Titanium Kay (for $55) upon recommendation from fi’s friend. They have quite a selection of styles and designs. We got the ring withina week of ordering and fi loves it!

We just bought his ring from Overstock last week. It was under $60 with free shipping. I cannot believe taht the first jewelry store we went to was over $400. We found the same exact ring on overstock. To my FH it was important that it was cobalt-free (not all tungsten rings are). Good luck!

Are they able to cut off tungsten rings in case of emergency if they need to at the hospital? Just wondering because my dad got into a little accident with a saw and the hospital had a really, really hard time sawing off his wedding ring made of gold – such a hard time that he almost lost his finger because of it. Love the look of tungsten, but I didn’t know if it is too hard cut through.
