Black Tungsten- good or bad??
Posted 19 January 2009 - 02:55 PM
Tungsten is actually a powder that is formed into jewlery, not liquid like silver or gold.
To remove the ring in an emergency the actually take a sharp object made for tungsten and shatter the ring for removal.
So if there is an emergency like that the ring is a total loss, but removed and finger saved. Not a bad trade off
Thanks for all of the suggestions and keep them coming.
In regards to the black tungsten vs regulare tungsten carbide, I guess it is black ceramic tungsten. I wonder if that will "wear off" or scratch?

The sizing issues stated above are good advice too... order a half to one size smaller than normal.

Don't worry about removing the rings (it's a myth!). They can be removed with vice grips or various jewelers tools, and hospitals are equipped to deal with the problem. The Trew Tungsten site says to save the pieces if the ring is removed in an emergency, and they well replace it (with appropriate proof). I'm guessing other sellers do the same thing!
We actually got a totally unexpected $80 rebate on the ring AFTER we paid for it because the cost of tungsten went down. How nice is that?
I'm not sure about black tungsten rings (tungsten rings are naturally a gunmetalish color) so I would just look into the "ingredients" and make sure there's nothing weird or troublesome in there.
GL! I personally think tungsten rings are fantastic. They're a bit manly while still looking nice, and they stand up fantastically to wear and tear. Sure they can't be resized, but that goes hand-in-hand with being as hard as sapphires and hardly ever needing to be polished! I'm starting to wish MY ring was tungsten :S
