Found 10th Jan 2016
I wanted a tungsten carbide wedding band ring but did not trust the dodgy looking ones from amazon and stumbled across these for less than £4!!

I have done a lot of research and I know people fear these because "they can not be removed in an emergency" but this is not true.

If you are into science more than bling then maybe you will like them?

Your bride/husband to be is a very lucky person


It's for myself, I am not materialist and I like the properties of the metal (weighty, almost scratch proof, dark silver appearance). I would still want it even if it was equivalently priced with platinum.

My fiancée was given a palladium engagement ring with a sapphire, again because I liked the properties of the metal over platinum and the color of the stone.
Maybe some people measure their love with the size of the rock?

That's fair enough, I honestly had no idea rings were even this cheap! - I'm certainly not into bling or rocks so guess can understand your logic.

I've still got quite a few tungsten carbide tips from when I use to work on a lathe about 40 years ago.

Why are women so obsessed with weddings and wedding rings anyway?

The ring has to last the rest of your life, £6.44 it's not going to be long is it, you're probably not even going to get the oral
I like it for myself too!!! I have few rings on my fingers and none is wedding one (wedding ring have place in the box because it is gold and I'm not a gold fan). More,I am woman and completely do not understand why SOME men are so obsessed with weddings anyway? (Generalization is unconscionable).
Dont buy it, I had a tungsten carbide ring from Greed.
Im pretty sure they contain cobalt which leaches out and stains the ring.

Get titanium instead.

Hold on a minute......Are you suppose to buy them an engagement ring before you buy them a wedding ring??? There are 2 rings that you need to buy??
Just don't drop it... They're fairly brittle compared to other metals.

I do like girls that rock, but even I would be stretching to 'here's a cheap ring let's get married in a tent under the fridge' That has never worked, then again I've never wanted to be married and consequently that has never happened. Maybe if I drink more it will.

Let me tell you as a man, we could think up of a more stressful day than a wedding day- it's truly awful

Yeh right.

Think you would have to hit it with a hammer for it to crack.

All sizes out of stock anyway.

The super cheap ones from unknown sellers (ebay etc) usually have cobalt, I am hoping that these coming from a more reputable seller will be nickle carbon compound which is the best for tungsten rings.
I got a titanium wedding ring for myself 5 years ago from John Greed. I chosen not to have the tungsten as when read up on removing them in an emergency can be a problem. It is still in great condition no marks or changes to the shape and i do manual work where softer metals would have gotten damaged. No skin allergy problems for me either with the titanium one.
I bought my wife a ring made from Welsh Gold for £49. Mostly because it was the only one I could find that matched the engagement ring.
I'd have loved one of these for myself (except I don't wear jewellery). :-)

Mine was absolutely incredible. I loved every moment and wish I could go back and do the whole thing again...
Nothing says "i love you" more than a ring made out of the same stuff as drill bits.

Do they do sovereign rings too?
The bigger the wedding day, the earlier the divorce.
You could say " I love you " better with the rings from a packet of Haribo.

They would probably last longer
best not to wear one at all. simple.

Pretty much my attitude tbh. If I did wear one though i'd go Platinum/Wolfram as I dont like the cheap feel of Titanium. I have to admit I find Wolfram almost hypnotic to look at, it's quite fascinating how something can be shiny yet dark at the same time.......
Looked into tungsten a while ago. Interestingly (or "interestingly," depending on your mindset), it's a neutron reflector, so one of a few materials that can cause radioactive material to go critical.

how kind of you to take her opinion into account, she must be a very lucky lady
I chose Tungsten Carbide as my wedding band over 7 years ago, I love the colour and weight of the metal. Think it cost me just under £50, price wasn't particularly crucial so I could've spent far more but had no desire to. I got platinum for the other half though, don't think she would've appreciated a ring with a 2 figure price lol

Nothing worse than having a stained ring

This blokes getting married!

The chances of finding out what condition the ring is in are just behind his chances of plaiting fog or knitting yoghurt.
I can never think of Tungsten Carbide drills without thinking of >>>THIS<<<

Looking at them and wearing them. The weight alone will be a giveaway.
