    Well I have been searching all over trying to find a ring for FI. I work in the jewelry industry, so I kept showing him wholesale catalogs and websites with rings I thought he would like. Heck, I even took him to a wholesale jewelry show a few months ago so he could see some in person and try them on...all to luke warm results.

    Well he was on EBay looking for computer parts and he found his dream ring. It is a modified knock off of a Chanel Ultra ring. It has a few style differences from the Chanel ones...but I think it is so cool.

    We ordered it off EBay direct from the manufacturer, so it is being custom made. I didn't get to use my wholesale connections (couldn't find anyone in Seattle that had the ring)...but we still got a good deal on it.

    It is Tungsten and black ceramic. I can't wait to see it in person

      Ooh that is a neat look! My FI was similarly picky-- I swear we went to 10 different jewelry stores and he didn't like anything! This after searching online for ages. He finally went with a tungsten band etched with a Celtic knotwork pattern.

        I know, I think he was being pickier than me! Guys always make fun of girls for stuff like this...but when it comes down to it, they are just as bad.

              We bought it on EBay. There are 3 sellers with the same ring, but the place we bought it from had the best rating and communication. (He responded to my questions multiple times very quickly...and he is in Hong Kong!)

              Just search on ceramic tungsten ring to see the others...but here is the listing we bought from:

                    Update - well the ring was delivered today!! Pretty quickly esp. as it came all the way from Hong Kong.

                    It is so cool. It is not solid like most other rings, but moves and folds up like a watch band or bicycle chain. The black ceramic part is very similar to hematite in color and the tungsten part is a smokey silver color. Because it moves it is very comfortable to wear. It has a good weight to it, but it isn't too heavy.

                    I'm pretty critical when it comes to jewelry quality, as it's my job...and I am very happy with this one.
