    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!
        Loving married life!

            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.

                  Thanks for sharing. MY FI was considering Tungsten but was nervous to order online. I can't wait to let him know about your good experience.
