I am a bartender who has been opening bottles with my thumb ring for years, the problem is that the rings keep tearing and chipping, which makes them uncomfortable to wear and ultimately destroys them. Tungsten Carbide is amazing stuff, I am shocked at how brand new this thing still looks after a few hundred bottles. Not a scratch!
This ring has taken a beaten but you'd never be able to tell. The only thing, supposedly, that can scratch tungsten carbide is a diamond and so far, I believe it. I work all day with my hands and the ring looks as good as new. I couldn't be happier with it.
I purchased this ring for my husband to be. When i received the ring i was admazed at the brilliance and workmanship. I am very satisfied that i purchased the ring from Overstock.com for at a leading retail jewelry store the SAME RING was priced at $350.00 and that was priced on SALE. I am very pleased.
