Black Tungsten- good or bad??
Posted 19 January 2009 - 01:55 AM
My FI is interested in the black tungsten wedding bands, Like this on:
Black Tungsten Rings & Bands
Our jewler that sold us the E -ring did not seem to have good things to say bout tungsten and had no info on the black tungsten.
Does anyone have any info good or bad on black tungsten?
Side note: a lot of the websites have lifetime guarantees , so they must "last".

I bought FI a tungsten ring. I also know lots of people who have bought them and are pleased with them.

I have a titanium and a tungsten band. What I heard when I was shopping is that they are so strong that if you have an accident and break your finger or it swells up then the hospital has to have a special tool or a laser to cut the band off, and you may be out of luck. However, Snopes says that is false, so I think you are good to go: snopes.com: Titanium Wedding Rings

Biggest Pro was that they are very sturdy and most people are not allergic to them like golds.
Biggest Con and this was on every site I read, even ones that specialized in the rings said that they cannot be made smaller and can only be made a tad bit larger and they is by changing the thickness giving more room for the finger. They all also said it takes special tools to get it off.
I have heard that some rings are made with a 'weak' spot which makes them easier to get off.
I love the look of them and the cost of them, but after researching I am a bit apprehensive about buying one. Most likely you will never have to have you ring cut off but..you never know.

My guy bought a Tungsten ring - our insurance covers "sizing up or down" so getting a whole new ring if he needs.
