I was prepared to not like this ring. It's a replacement for my gold wedding ring, which was lost after 20yrs of wear. I'm a little surprised to find myself saying "This is a GREAT ring!!!" It's twice as thick as what I was used to, yet it's just as comfortable. The workmanship is flawless. The contrast between the high polish on the bevels and the brushed finish on the flat is truly striking. This is a very handsome ring, so much so in fact that numerous people have asked me about it (You're welcome Overstock - 3 of them have since purchased similar tungsten rings from you). Here's the really cool part, I work outside with my hands for a living. My last ring was scratched, dented and looked pretty raggy after just a few days. After twenty years it was misshapen and had been repaired several times (a dog once bit through it!). That's the reason I decided to go with a less expensive ring as a replacement. This Tungsten Ring is something else though! It has been on my hand since the day it arrived and still looks brand new. It should be scratched and have a few dents by now but....NOTHING! This is a hard metal! I'm very impressed. If you're looking for a great looking ring that'll hold up to every day abuses - this is it.
