Bought both the red and blue banded TC rings - both look very elegant. In sunlight, the colors really standout, and with inside lighting they are nice highlights without being flashy. The ring(s) run a tiny bit small, so I would recommend taking the next 1/2 size up - these rings CANNOT be resized at all. They are very comfortable to wear and have a nice weight to them. The color is actually better than the picture indicates, especially for the red (well, actually orange-red - think taillight as opposed to stop sign). I say this with all Tungsten-Carbide rings - they are very tough to damage because of the type of metal, but that resistance makes the metal, because it is so hard, brittle. There is a *remote* possibility that dropping any TC ring on ceramic or concrete can cause it to break, depending on how it hits. That being said, I have dropped several of my rings on both my ceramic tile kitchen floor and my concrete garage floor and they had no damage - your mileage may vary! Dropping it is about the only way I can think of to damage this - it's tough! Definitely a bargain at this price!
I chose this ring because the colours of the insert is my high school And my children's high school colours(though we didn't attend the same high schools). It is made of durable and long wearing material-not soft gold or silver. That is why I chose the ring.
I purchased this same ring with blue inlay for my honey and he absolutely loves it! When I showed it to my 20 year-old son, he wanted it in red, so I bought it for him as a Christmas present. He is very proud to wear it and, working at Best Buy, he gets many compliments from the customers he serves. It's heavy, shiny and strong - and also very masculine. It has a way of catching light reflecting off the carbon fiber inlay so beautifully. So, two of the men in my life are very happy, and I cannot thank the Overstock team for their capable assistance (I had to return my son's ring for a different size, and they made it quick and simple). I will definitely recommend this ring and Overstock.com overall for their quality and customer service!
I ordered this ring for my son who is 28. He has not taken it off since I gave it to him after Christmas. The black and red colors compliment each other very well. The shipping was quick. So, I guess you could say we are very pleased all the way around. Thank you Overstock!!
I love the ring and my husband does too. It's not quite as red as it is in the photo. It's more of an orange red but it still looks great. The durability and scratch resistance is a huge plus. He doesn't have to be careful not to damage it.
This ring is gorgeous... dont let the picture fool you it is even more beatiful when you get it. I bought it for my husband for christmas since we never got him an actual band and he loves it. It shines and sparkles, its not a pretty girly ring like many mens rings with diamonds so men really like it, Its got a young but manly look. The shipping of this product suprised me... i ordered the ring and it was here in the next couple of days earlier then i had expected. We have heard a few things about tungstien and carbon fiber so keep these in mind when you order...make sure you have the exact size tungstien cant be resized. and We have heard carbon fiber may break or shatter, so get the 2-4 year protection plan. This ring is gorgeous and affordable.
My husband and I bought these to replace our wedding rings. We both work in healthcare and needed sturdy rings. They are just gorgeous and classy looking. Not dainty by any means but then I never liked dainty rings. We had to buy several to find the right sizes (ran smaller than we thought) but eventually got it right and are very pleased with the purchases.
