We originally had platinum rings when we got married 3 years ago but hubby beat his up badly. He had been looking at tungsten carbide for a long time but the one he wanted was hard to find and over 400. I saw this one and it is very similar so I got it for him as a surprise. Scared he wouldnt like it as much but he loved it. He usually takes off his other ring to do stuff around the house (he is a SAHD) but he hasnt taken this one off all day. Shipping was fast, the ring is really nice, and sturdy. The comfort fit inside is nice and it runs true to size.
