I purchased this ring as my wedding band 6 months ago. When I got it I instantly fell in love with the design, shape and overall look of it. A few weeks after my wedding I noticed it had a small oxidized spot. Now the shiny out bands of the ring are completely oxidized. After doing some research, it is obvious this ring was made with COLBALT. Here is what I found about tungsten colbalt rings:
"Many rings that claim to be tungsten carbide are actually cobalt and carbide, or a mixture of tungsten, cobalt and carbide. Cobalt is much easier to form a bond with, and the forging can be done at a lower temperature for less cost.
There are a lot of downsides that come along with a tungsten carbide ring that has cobalt in it. For one thing, while you wear it, the cobalt in the ring will react with the natural oils produced by your skin. Cobalt rings will change your skin color, and over time they'll develop permanent oxidation spots that you'll never be able to scrub away. The rings might look nice at first, but within a week to a month depending on how much you wear it, the chemical reactions will occur and ruin its look"
Furthemore, there has been some intial research on the effect of Colbalt/Tungsten metals against human skin that suggests systemic toxicity and neurotoxicity may occur
following exposure to tungsten carbide cobalt. Type "Toxicity of Tungsten Carbide and Cobalt-doped Tungsten Carbide" and see what comes up.
Overstock told me they may give me a "partial" refund...
I bought this ring for my boyfriend as a promise ring. It was absolutely beautiful and he really loves it. He has had it on for about a month now and not one scratch on it. We just bought a house and he's done alot of hard work so the ring is very durable. It's beautiful and we are both happy.
The beveled edges really shine and the black is a great contrast to the white shiny metal. Ring has good heft, as a tungsten carbide is heavier than steel, but it is also harder than steel, which means it will shatter with extreme force. The force to shatter a carbide could not be created by ordinary use of jewelery, so you're safe. It is 50% tungsten/ 50% carbon. The black interior of the ring is very smooth and contoured; a comfortable feeling. And it really does look nice and manly. If you have a desk job, this ring will hold up to ordinary use and stay nice for a very long time.
The ring was exactly what I had imagined it to be! It was great. The only issue was that when it arrived in the mail, there were some small scratches on the side of the ring. But not a big enough deal to return it, especially in the holiday season when it was a gift.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? It looks exactly the same.
How accurate was the sizing? Like the product said, the ring is about a half a size larger than the size listed.
