Anyone have any experience with tungsten? My SO really wanted a certain one, long story short we found one on sale for super cheap (like $15 including shipping). The sale was going to end within a few minutes so I ordered it with the rationale that it was only $15 if he didn’t like it etc.
We received it yesterday and it seems really nice, fits great etc. Just wondering what others think of it, especially if your FI/DH has one. From what i read it can’t be resized, can’t be cut off (but apparently can be shattered), but it stays looking new all the time. Thanks for any insite!

Ya my Husband’s is Tungsten, alot of guys are getting them because they’re chep and sturdy! Just make sure you have a powerful saw in case his finger swells for whatever reason (breaks it, jams it etc.) because you’r correct..they don’t cut easily!

My FH liked the idea and we’re ordering a tungsten band for him as well. I think it’s a popular option right now especially for budget conscious couples that dislike titanium.

My husband has a tungsten wedding band and he likes it! He really likes the muted deep grey color of tungsten and the weight. It’s a very masculine looking ring and he’s a masculine kinda guy. The only thing he’s complained about is that his ring scratches his cellphone screen. He’s left handed and keeps it in his left pocket so I think that has a lot to do with the scratching.

My husband’s is tungsten carbide. It was perfect for him and his line of work (gold would have lasted approximately 30 seconds before being completely scratched to hell) and I was scared that if there was any kind of problem, a titanium ring wouldn’t be able to be cut off/cracked off. It’s held up pretty amazingly over the last year so far.

Thanks ladies! Just what I wanted to hear! The ring is really pretty and unique (it has a patterned inlay) I was just worried because we didn’t do much research prior to purchasing, he just really liked them!
@misspeanut: perfect! Exactly what I wanted to hear. SO is an engineer currently working in a plant and also does R&D stuff so he’s constantly working with his hands/in/on machines lol!
