I don’t know about a store you could just go to to buy it, but what about having it custom made with the metal of your choice?

Platinum darkens to a gunmetal gray color. You can also get darkened platinum, I believe it is called oxidized platinum.

The effect looks like this (this is a ring by Cathy Waterman, who specializes in that more gothic look):

I should add that the ring you saw was probably black rhodium at that price– you don’t want that for an engagement ring because the finish won’t last and the lighter color will show through the wear patches. Darkened platinum is probably the best choice but you can also get oxidized white gold.

im not sure what the dark metal is, but i think custom made sounds like a good choice for you. 🙂

do a bit of research on stones too. some are really soft and will wear down easy. but they are ussually cheaper too and could be replaced! hope this helps a little!

This one has a moissanite stone in it, but it is set in a dark metal… it’s Titanium. 

Here it is on etsy.

I would also suggest going custom.

just remember that tungsten cannot be resized …. im not sure about titanium… have you thought about going with a black diamond? i think these are stunning!

@FlamingRedHair: Maybe hematite? A lot of rings are made from it now.
