My fiance and I purchased this ring to be his wedding band- after a lot of research, we decided to go with tungsten since he works with his hands a lot and we didn't want it to get dinged up. This is the best price we found for a good quality tungsten ring anywhere, and we were so happy because we know overstock has always had great customer service in case we have any problems. The ring is beautiful in person, elegant, masculine, and very unique and noticable without being too trendy or flashy. We read the reviews and purchased a half size down, and it fit perfectly. Haven't worn it much yet since we get married in May, but looks great!
This ring is perfect as a wedding band. I ordered it for my fiancee and I know he's going to love it. It's very masculine and tough enough to stand up to a demanding career in the military. The ring itself is a heavy one, but I know that he wants something that is built to last. I ordered on a Sunday night and got it by Thursday. Excellent service. I love overstock!
I just bought this ring for my soon to be husband. He's never been fond of jewelry, but always says how he likes the gun metal color on different things. The pictures make this item look darker than the actual ring is when in person. However, the styling is very nice, and it is a handsome ring. I showed it to him, and he liked that it looked different. He didn't want a regular silver "or" gold band. So he approved.
I have shopped various jewelry stores, in person, searching for a tungsten carbide ring to purchase for my fiancee' for our wedding. I found this ring in well-known shops for $200-$300. I decided to look online and was hesitant, actually, in purchasing with only a photo to go by, and I honestly couldn't believe the ring was at such a price!! I was so happy when I opened the package to find the ring was incredible!......beautiful, heavy, and true to the tungsten carbide rings I had held, firsthand. I would highly recommend this ring to anyone looking for a fabulous wedding ring at a fraction of the cost. Do be aware, though, to definitely take into consideration the sizing of the ring, and order a half size smaller than you feel you need. As most have said, it seems to be the way to go, and I found that out, too. Also, as others have mentioned, comfort fit rings do fit a little differently. Lastly, if you do need an exchange, it's so very easy to do here at overstock.com. Oh yes, my fiancee' thought for sure I'd ran back to the jewelry shop and surprised him for Valentine's Day with the ring! I did show him the website, and he's in agreement with everything I've said.....great ring, great value!
I bought this ring as a replacement wedding band for my husband. His original ring was quite worn and scratched after 26 years of wear & tear. This Tungsten Carbide Ring is just beautiful, and shines from across the room. My husband is delighted, and wore it in to work so that all the men who work in the engineer's shop could see it. Everyone loves it, and can't believe what a wonderful deal we got on the price. As always, we are never disappointed with anything that we purchase from Overstock.
Getting married this year and bought this for my fiance. He doesn't like bright silver so this seemed perfect. I can't even begin to tell you how pleased I was when I opened the box...this ring is awesome! If you're looking for something that's not too dark and not too light, this is a great choice. I was also impressed by it's quality as it has a really nice weight to it. Doesn't look or feel cheap in any way whatsoever. Like many other reviewers, I followed the suggestion of getting a half size down but it was actually a little too small. I called Overstock and they processed an exchange, which was probably one of the smoothest transactions I've ever experienced. The replacement came immediately. Great product for a great price, and great customer service.
Ladies, brides to be, men, etc. Please don't make the same mistake I did. I bought this ring for my husband, he wanted Tungsten, and a thick heavy ring which he got. We loved this ring when we got it, however we have been married for 5 months now and the ring is completely tarnished, dull (on the inner loop) and I have to replace his ring already. He does not use chemicals or anything harsh on his hands except hand soap, so there is no reasonable explanation for this problem. It really is too bad cause we loved it. We both learned our lesson and I am shopping now for a Titanium instead. Hope this helps.
My Husband loves this ring. It does run 1/2 a size bigger than normal, which I guess is common with Tungsten as our jeweler told us. It looks really sharp on him, and was significantly less expensive than gold or platinum, but looks just as good! Plus all the savings on his ring meant more for mine =)
My anniversary with my boyfriend is coming up and I really wanted to get him something nice but didn't want to spend a lot of money. I looked at tungsten carbide rings at a bunch of name jewelers in store and online and their prices were anywhere from $150-450. Outrageous! I looked here and found this beautiful ring for such a steal! I highly recommend this ring! It's so shiny and so sleek. The ring is a little thinner than the picture shows. I knew it was 7mm but the picture makes it look like 8-9mm. One thing I like is that it is tungsten carbide-cobalt free. I really wanted a ring that was cobalt free so it didn't oxidize and turn my boyfriend's finger funny colors. Also regarding sizing: I had my boyfriend measured in the jewelry store and had him try on tungsten carbide rings. He was measured at a 10.5 and all the rings fit. I know all the reviews on here say order a size down but I suggest getting your man sized at the store and if you can get him to try on some tungsten. The 10.5 fits wonderfully. I'm not sure if gold fits differently since he's never owned a ring before, but I imagine with all these reviews it must. Thanks Overstock! I will be coming here for all my jewelry wants!
The ring itself is solid, seems durable and looks great. These rings run a half size too big. We used a ring sizer prior to ordering and the ring came a half size too big. Unfortunately Overstock doesn't offer exchanges, so we will have to pay for shipping 3 times (first order, return and then to order again).
When I first opened the box, all I could say was "WOW!" This was an anniversary gift for my husband. I could hardly wait to show him, but needed to wait a couple of weeks more. The brushed metal and beveled trimming is perfect. You can see it shining. He loves it! The ring was ordered a half size DOWN and fits him just right.
We bought this for my fiance as his wedding band, and we're very happy with the product. We didn't want to spend hundreds, as he's prone to losing things and works with his hands a lot. It was shipped quickly, and in great condition. It really looks much better in person. It will take a while for him to get used to it, as it's a little thicker and he never wears jewelry. It's wasn't exactly true to size for him, since he was sized at a 9.5, and we ordered a 9.
The ring looks good and it doesnt look cheap. I read some of the reviews and went with what they say about the size of the ring. My future husband is a size 11 and I got him size 10.5. Once we got the package by mail, by the way it was pretty quick; the ring was a perfect fit :)
