Oh wow!  I am actually pretty surprised.  My Brother-In-Law has a tungsten ring and attacked it with a hammer (because it is such a hard material) and ended up dinging up his hammer lol

@Eckle:  It’s more accurate to say it cleaves or cracks than shatters.

Since it’s a non malleable material, it will take all the pressure it can, but has no where to go once it’s too much, and you have a shattered ring.

I’m sentimental, so a breakaway ring would not suit me well, but the benefit of them in case of emergency room visits is a VERY good point.

@Bracelet00:  +1 cleave is the perfect word.

@MagnoliaBlossom:  +1. Me too. We got it for this reason just in case but so far so good, and the ring is intact and not scratches at all! DH even built us a new bed and hit it several times in the process. Lol

My FSIL’s husband’s ring shattered twice. It was tungsten carbide. After the second time, they just gave up and bought a gold band. I went to the website for the jeweler they purchased it from and read the fine print – they do NOT cover tungsten rings. No wonder.

@capitalbee:  weird. I have never heard of any tungsten Jewelers who don’t offer lifetime guarantees for both breaks and sizing. We went a side up before the wedding and they send us the new one no questions asked before we even sent back the old one.

@capitalbee:  What a bummer 🙁 I had looked at so many and had seen the lifetime guarantees to be pretty universal, so I naively assumed it was SOP for tungsten dealers. I’m glad we went with Triton then. Hope they love their new ring! 🙂
