Pros: Comfortable fit Size accurate ( to what local jeweler sized) Aesthetics like picture Quick standard shipping to Hawaii Cons: Color not same as pictured- lighter like white tungsten and other similar bands on website. I decided to purchase this ring for my S.O. as he liked this particular style we saw at a local jeweler but they didn't carry a size 8 in stock which would be a 4-6wk special order and it was ~6x the cost of this ring here. Their standard size was 10. The tungsten ring was indeed a dark grey tone with a 5.5-6 mm step beveled band and I found this seem to be a close match in terms of design and color, but a wider band. It had high ranked reviews that I decided to purchase. The shipping speed was quick as I ordered it on Fri night 12/9/16 HST and it arrived today, 12/12/16. It arrived in a ordinary box. I would change it out if it were a gift or wedding presentation like another reviewer mentioned. Much to my surprise, the color was much lighter than pictured. I was disappointed in that. My S.O. says he likes it- we both agree that it does look good on him. But we both know he wanted a darker colored ring. This was purchased to replace his gold ring he lost in the yard. So, what is actually the difference from cheaper ones such as ITEM#: 15876745 ? https://www.overstock.com/Jewelry-Watches/Oliveti-Brushed-Cobalt-Mens-Beveled-Edge-Comfort-Fit-Band-7-mm/8608548/product.html I can't tell the difference other than the price.
I'm the husband that this ring was purchased for and I have to say I love it. Simple, elegant, the inside in nice and smooth and rounded so that it is easy to slide on and off. And, with tungsten you don't have to worry about scuffs or scratches or any of that. There's not a mark on it! That being said... make sure you get the right size because tungsten is not a resizeable metal. But seriously... its a great band and I'm very happy with it.
I suppose that I should have looked up what "tungsten carbide" actually IS prior to purchasing this ring. It IS some kind of metal, I can tell by biting it, but it looks like plastic. That being said, I am keeping this expensively cheap-seeming thing, because it is the right width and size and I wanted a black ring to layer with my other rings, and this does the trick. It's actually a good stacker, but it needs the support of other rings to give it some sort of importance.
