I bought this for my husband for our 3 yr anniversary in October. He always told me that he wanted a tungsten carbide ring. When I found this one I couldn't believe the price. I read the reviews and decided it was the right road to take. I was actually considering the carbon fiber inlay rings but I noticed that those rings have become incredibly popular over the past year. Overall I am very happy with my purchase and I would recommend this ring to other wives searching for that special ring for their hubbys. It does run very big, I purchased a 10.5 and we had to send it back for a 9.5 which was a tiny bit loose but he decided it was good. Its very heavy too. I also read that someone said their ring came in a beautiful box.....I am thinking maybe they chose the gift wrapping option?? because I expected a beautiful box but when it arrived it was in a dinky cheap white box with a pc of Styrofoam holding it somewhat in place...id say, Go for the gift wrapping option. I actually placed the ring in his original wedding ring box (from Zales) and wrapped it. Enjoy!
