Black ring with tire tread imprinted...

Recommended Posts

My FI found that ring. He wanted a tungston ring and so he searched for weeks. One day he goes how bout this one and showed me a tungston one with tire tread design and I laughed. I don't think he seriously wanted it but thought it was funny. But I HAVE seen this ring. About the ER thing it is true you cannot cut it. But you CAN engrave it..my FI is engraving his the trick you MUST go to a FINE jeweler to do it. When they first came out people wouldn't but since it's becoming more popular they will. I think hahah. Anyways about the ER...it's pressure..b/c tungston is like a ceramic the way it is made they have to clamp it and apply pressure to crack it. I have seen tungston break personally in a jewelry store ....so it can come off just with pressure. Anyways just thought I'd throw that out there not to rule out tungston. I will tell my FI to find the tire tread one again...and I'll look but I HAVE seen it...good luck! And tungston is beautiful! The smoky color I love it wink.gif

Well I did some searching and I couldn't find the tire tread one but I'm still looking. But I found some you might like for him. Just ideas. I forgot to put that I would recommend polished tungston. When we got his the jeweler said b/c the way they brush tungston it is possible to scratch the brushed tungston. So he recommended the polished b/c its harder. If that makes sense. We have his ring but he can't wear it yet *wink* but when he does I'll let you know how it does. Anyways heres some pics to see if you like any of them. Or give you an idea. I'm sorry if they're big I don't know how to make them smaller yikes...

Carly, check out Scott Kay. He has a Sparta collection, but not all the designs are on the website, but you can request a brochure from the website. My fiance picked out a band he liked from that collection, and they had it at Bailey, Banks and Biddle for $1100. Not sure how much you want to spend, but I thought I saw something similar to a tire tread design. I couldn't find it on the website though.

 

This will take you to the men's rings.

Matt tells me last night he was only kidding about the tire tread ring. I was like "WHAThuh.gif!!!! After all the work me and the girls put into researching and trying to find it for you!?"

 

He said not for a wedding band. He does still like the dark metals though, so there's a step.

 

Sometimes that man just drives me crazy. Thank you all for your research and help looking into this!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
