Hey everyone, so my fiance told me about a type of wedding band called Tungsten. I was wondernig if anyone had any experience or recommendations about this type of metal/ring. From what I have read so far it sounds great especially because I am in construction and Tungsten is very durable. Just wanted to get any opnions, thanks!

If I were you I would not expect my husband to wear his ring on a daily basis to work if he’s using his hands all day. I grew up on constructions sites and know of 2 people personally that have lost or severed ring finger due to wedding ring related accidents. BUT thats just me. I also work at fedex and we recently had a ring related injury when a band got caught on the belt. I don’t want to scare you but I personally don’t wear my ring at work sometimes too.
Tungsten should not bend or scratch , it is a heavier metal , just slightly heavier then gold. when looking for a tungsten ring you want to ensure it doesn’t contain colbalt which can react with your skin , and could cause the ring to shatter if hit. I personally really liked the tungsten rings , but Hubby chose a stainless band he liked , he’s the one wearing it so whatever makes him happy, I have to say it’s held up nicely so far , but he is on a computer al day.

My husband’s ring is made of tungsten. He really likes it, though it took him a week or so to get used to it (he’s not a jewelry person). We shopped around a bit for his ring, and he tried on just about every option — gold, platinum, titanium, etc. He went with the tungsten because it is basically indestructable.
We used this website as a starting point — http://www.titaniumkay.com

My FH got a tungsten ring and he really likes it..the color is nice and its not flashy…also, he coaches 3 high school sports a year and thinks that because of the material it is made of, it will not be scratched or ruin why throwing batting practice, hitting pop flies, running basketball drills, and using the sleds for football practice…but i guess, time will tell
the one thing that i was not totally jazzed about was the fact that if you want to get the ring engraved, you have to send it back to the company because there is not a machine strong enough to engrave it…also, i think it costs 100$ to get it engraved!! but you know, it was affordable and he likes it..so whatever floats his boat!!

My husband has a tungsten ring and he loves it. In fact, I started this thread about it a couple of months back:
Tungsten Rings for hubby?
We also ordered his ring from the same site as bgsualum–they had great quality at awesome prices. I think the main advice to offer about tungsten is that it can’t be resized, so make sure that your fiance gets measured before you order. Also, for whatever reason, the rings are WAY pricier in jewelery stores than they are online. We found that there wasn’t a quality difference, so I’d advise ordering online instead.

We just bought my fiance’s wedding band and it is made of tungsten…he loves it and tries to wear it 😉 I don’t allow that!
He coaches baseballl on the side and runs a baseball business so is always having metal and wood bats in his hands….we were very concerned about this when we were purchasing his ring! The research that we’ve done said it’s durable, strong and great price!
We were sold! It’s great!

I’ve heard that the tungsten rings can’t be cut off in an emergency because they are too strong. So, if you injure your finger an it swells up, you can’t get the ring cut off.

My Fiance wanted a Tungsten ring too! Some things to note though:
- Tungsten CAN’T be resized – you have to order a new ring. (We bought FI’s at Zales and their "warrenty" covers a lifetime of "resizings" so that’s something to ask about.)
- Tungsten CAN’T be cut off in an emergency BUT has pressure points so that it can be shattered.
- We’re having FI’s engraved and it will cost $20 at Zales. It’s definitely something to check into if you want to do it.
- They’re CHEAP! (FI’s ring is a 6mm(?) Tungsten band and it was only $150. (Zales warrenty is $55 for forever!)
Can you tell I LOVE Zales?! hahaIf it’s something you are interested in talk to jewelers that are local to you, and search the internet.
Good luck! 🙂

We just got my FI’s tungsten carbide ring from Titanium Kay and he loves it. My best friend’s hubby has a tungsten ring, too. He wanted something scratch resistant and durable and he just loves the weight of tungsten. With Titanium Kay they also have laser engraving on their rings and their rings can indeed be removed in case of medical emergency. At least that’s what it says on the site.

My fiance’s wedding ring is tungsten. We liked it initially because of the color, more of a black-silver, like hematite. It doesn’t scratch, which is great for him, since he works in a factory. The jeweler even took a key from his pocket and rubbed it on one of the bands to show us! I was concerned about being able to cut it off in an emergency (again, because he works in a factory). That’s why we had ruled out titanium. But it can be shattered relatively quickly and easily with vice grip pliers. Apparently that’s the same thing they do with ceramic rings or rings made of stones (jade etc.).

We also got a tungsten ring. I think it’s gorgeous. I would recommend this website as well, I had a great experience buying from them: http://www.tungstenworld.com
I got a plastic ring-sizer through the mail for free and then used a coupon to get a good deal on the ring he chose.
