Buyer beware
 from Iowa,  Oct 6, 2011

I bought this ring as my wedding band. The first ring I received was perfect and looked exactly like the one pictured. However, it was too big. I listened to suggested and ordered up. I returned this first ring and received my second ring. This one was true to size, however the plated section looked dark gray, like hematite, not black like the first one I ordered. However, my true gripe comes from the fact that this ring made me break out in a nasty rash. Thinking I had got something under the ring, I let it heal and tried again, only to have the same results. After much research, I discovered that tungsten carbide rings that use cobalt as a binder cause a nasty skin reaction like the one I had. Therefore, I have concluded that AT LEAST SOME OF THESE RINGS have COBALT as a binder, CONTRARY TO THE DESCRIPTION. Aside from this issue, the ring is very attractive and weighty. However, I am deeply disappointed that I cannot wear the wedding band that is in all of our wedding photos. I will not purchase another tungsten carbide ring from because I cannot trust that their descriptions are accurate.

  • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Plated section was dark gray, not black
  • How accurate was the sizing? Ring was true to size
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Probably pretty good
