I lost my original Tungsten band at the lake and it was one that my wife paid $250 for at a jewelry store. I loved that band, but I thought it would be silly to pay that much again for another one. So we looked around and I found this one that was similar to the one I had. When I got it in it wasn't as heavy as my other one which i missed. The reason I went with tungsten in the first place was because of the durability and you can't scratch it. I used to enjoy taking my ring off and letting someone rub it on the cement or try to scratch it with a knife only to see that there weren't any scratches. With this ring you can't do that. It showed scratches after just normal use. I'm not sure why because it shouldn't do that.
I'm not going to complain too much because the price is a great price, but I wish the quality was the same as my original one.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image was little off compared to it in person, but it was still nice looking.
How accurate was the sizing? I'm actually in the process of getting a smaller size because it was too big.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The ring was *** so the quality is worth that much, but not more than that.
After nearly twenty-five years of wedded bliss my wife and I started looking for a ring to replace my very worn and thinning original gold wedding band. What we found was that the sizing tools on the websites were WAY off and the color of Tungsten Carbide was definitely more of a smokey gray than the shiny silver in the photos. We gave up and I just went without a band for a while. That was...awkward. The other night I looked on Overstock again, saw this ring, and ordered it. I received it today and here are the three things I really like:
1. The color is very, very close to the online photo (wysiwyg). Great brushed silver tone with the polished edges. Nice.
2. The fit was perfect. After screwing around with the online sizing tool and getting rings too big and then too small and finally ignoring ALL the other reviews that said "order this ring a half size big "or order that ring smaller" , I finally ordered a 9.5 and it fit perfectly! What else can I say.. perrrfecct-ly, but that would be a spelling error.
3. Most of the TC rings I tried had too thick of "walls on them". They uncomfortably crowded the fingers on either side. Some were simply too wide. I have medium sized hands and my original gold band was 5mm in width, a tad small. I tried a 9mm and it just looked out of proportion with my hand. 6.5 mm looks just right. If you have medium or smaller hands wearing a big ring is a sure fire way to make them look even smaller.
4. Right. The observant among you readers noticed that I slid a fourth point in here and I only advertised three! Sharp as a fresh scalpel you are! Price is the fourth point. You have to love the price for a ring that looks this good and fits this good. If you like the classic styling, you won't be disappointed.
I am pleasantly surprised with the quality. Manlier color than white gold, nice heavy weight makes it feel like a high quality, whereas white gold in the price range I was looking was cheap feeling (but then again I wasn't looking at the $800 white gold rings, which would have been the equivalent). I think this is the exact same tungsten ring that caught my attention at Kay Jewelers, except I didn't have to pay $200 for it. The only issue is that I was sized at multiple jeweler stores prior to ordering, in which I was told I was a 9 or 9.5 (your fingers change size throughout the day so there is going to be a little variance). I had to do a few returns to get the right size. So I ended up getting an 8, which I have to walk off my finger to get it off, but that is the fit I wanted because I am active and don't want to lose it. So it took me a couple of weeks to get the right size, but my patience saved me almost $160 for the exact same item I wanted. Well worth it.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very accurate.
How accurate was the sizing? Order one size smaller than your actual size.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Same as the $200 ring I was looking at in the mall.
I purchased the ring for my husband to use as an every day ring. Because of his field of work, he did not want to wear his good, expensive band. Beautiful ring for a great price! Very happy with our purchase! (the ring did run a 1/2 size big & we had to ship back for a smaller size)
Got this ring for my husband he loves the ring, its a bit big so will be getting it smaller if possible, or returning for a smaller size. But would recommend this ring if your getting married and need something actually cheaper than a $1000 ring that looks exactly the same, and you get the bonus that it doesnt scratch.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? it was close enough..the actual color os a bit darker though.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. quality is as expected

When it says the ring runs .05 sizes large, do they mean half a size or do they really mean 1/20th of a size?realhillboarding on Feb 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I found it to be a full size larger than what I needed. I was measured as 9 and 9.5 at multiple jeweler stores (your fingers change in size a little throughout the day), but I ended up getting an 8 in this ring.phillipruple on Apr 2, 2013
