The splash of color sounds nice! Just be careful with the titanium. It’s such a strong metal that it’s impossible or at least very hard to break off if something were to happen to your finger (which I suspect is a reasonable possibility in a career like police work). I’ve heard some jewelers are starting to make breaking points around the ring so they’re easier to crack in case of emergency, but I would check into the Etsy ring to see if it’s made that way. If the ring can’t be cut off, it’s the finger that gets chopped in an emergency, and no ring is worth losing a finger!

i have a funny shaped e-ring too–i didn’t want to get a band shaped specifically for my e-ring because i wanted to be able to wear it on it’s own, like you. so i just wear my e-ring on my right hand and wear a wedding band on my left; that’s another solution if you don’t want to get 2 bands 🙂

For the record– it is NOT true that a finger must be amputated to remove a titanium ring. It is not necessary to make them with fracture points unless you strongly suspect your hand will be crushed at some point and you want the ring to break off by itself.

All hospitals and even most jewelers can cut a titanium or tungsten ring off in a few seconds, with a saw that does no damage to the skin similar to what is used to remove a cast on a smaller scale. It takes less than 20 seconds.

Typically, instances in which a ring would need to be cut off involve cases where a ring has been bent out-of-round and is putting pressure on the finger– this is much more common with gold and platinum than titanium.

Gosh. I appologize if the information I’ve heard is incorrect, but there’s no need for snarkiness here. My point was just to make sure that a fellow bride knew to give extra thought to using a very strong metal for her ring when she as a job with some potential for injury. Kfricke89, it’s such a unique ring! I hope it does work out for you!

I don’t think she was being snarky, just letting you know so that you can make a better decision.
