I bought this ring as a replacement wedding band for a pricey gold band I lost at the beach. Given the wear and tear I put on my band with our active lifestyle, I decided that I did not want to spend a lot of money on a replacement, but rather buy a band that I felt was both solid and stylish. I wanted it to be unique, and most importantly a ring signifying my commitment to my lovely bride. It matched perfectly. The ring itself has about the same weight of gold. As a comfort fit it, the sizing usually runs about a half to a whole size bigger. I got fitted for a regular 10, so I ordered a 9.5. The perfect size probably would have been a 9.375, but that was not an option. Like most of the reviews, the ring is a bit darker than it appears in the pictures, but it is very masculine, and I was not looking for a shiny ring. With any physical activity over an extended time, I expect that the small diamonds will fall out. My wifeís engagement ring has both white and clear diamonds, so I am already looking forward to replacing with black diamonds just for the match. Tungsten is about as strong and rugged a metal that you will find in jewelry. It is not a precious metal, so donít buy if itís to impress by name. It is the same element used as filament in light bulbs, and what our military tank training rounds are made of. Unlike titanium, it is extremely hard to scratch, so there is not the worry of scratching, but not being able to polish. My hands take a beating in my line of work, but the ring looks exactly the same as it did the day I received it. I hope this ring lasts me as long as I last me, because it is a very handsome piece of jewelry (and more importantly, she loves it). If it doesnít - it is a heck of a value, distinctive, and the kind of jewelry a guy is proud to display.
