Tungsten wedding bands

Recommended Posts

Kits55 - so I'm curious then what kind of engagement band you have, because I'd thought that the tungsten would be so much harder than gold would be (either white or yellow) so it might not be the best combination? Do you have a gold band on your e-ring? My thinking is that if having even a 10k gold ring next to an 18k gold ring, one will wear the other down more... so why wouldn't it be the same case with gold next to tungsten. Does that make any sense at all??

I showed my FI the site and he seemed to really like them too! I think we'll be ordering from there for sure!
Yah the hardest part now will be figuring out if we should get him the 6mm or 8mm band width. I was surprised a bit that he didn't argue at all with the one I'd chosen, even after seeing the others. But I guess that one shopping trip we did a few weeks ago gave me enough info to pick out something he'd want!

Haha, and of course I made a gushy comment about "aww how cute is it that he picked out a ring for me and now I got to pick out a ring for him" just to rub it in a little bit!! Then of course he countered my comment that maybe its better I pick it out because after all, it is my way of saying "hey b*!ch he's mine - right?!" What a guy!

Lol- that's hilarious! I'm so glad he found a ring he liked! My FI was looking at the different black ones, too- they've got a nice selection on their site.

I'm so glad to hear this review is helping people out- thanks for the feedback everyone!

My FI just went for the plain stovepipe style - the "Thor" (lol) is what he picked. He wanted a stovepipe style with a comfort fit and the 8mm width as he has really big hands and didn't want anything too thin. As a side note- my rings are size 4.5 so they look soooo tiny next to his- my engagement ring fits inside his band even with the raised diamond. Should make for some cute pictures of the rings at the wedding.

I totally thought that FI would be up for this style too, but he is actually getting the 'Imperial' band, once we figure out the correct size that he needs. We requested a ring sizer from them just so make sure.

I can't believe that your entire e-ring fits inside of his!! You must have the most tiny little hands!! But those will totally be cute pictures for sure!

I actually have a platinum engagement and wedding band. I had to get a different band (Tungsten) when we moved to Africa. The Tungsten is extremely hard. So hard in fact that it is very difficult to etch, engrave, or put diamonds/other stones into.

Your questions do make sense, and yes, I wouldn't mix metals because one may wear faster than the other.

I'm sorry if I confused everyone! I wear the Tungsten Carbide band in Africa but my platinum one in the US.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
