Tungsten Fingerprint Ring

RNTU106_AThis is truly a treasure.  Have the ability to wear a rugged piece of jewelry, so customized that it has a completely unique marking of your loved on directly on it.  Whether it’s for your significant other, one of your children be it your own, niece, nephew, etc, or even if it’s a remembrance ring of someone who isn’t with you anymore – a Tungsten Fingerprint Ring is truly a great way to remember your loved one while they aren’t present.

These can also be ordered with more than one print.  For $20 each additional print, you could comfortably fit up to four prints on a larger tungsten ring.  This particular model is available from Ring Ninja.  They state they can do this type of engraving on other rings as well, not just tungsten.  They have the ability to put your cherished ones fingerprint on not only Tungsten, but Cobalt, Titanium, and Stainless Steel as well.  They even can do a white print on a black tungsten ring.  We saw a few examples but they didn’t have any pictures for us to put up with this post.  We hope to be able to add some soon as they really were some great, unique pieces of jewelry in the black.

The cost of the men’s version of this ring is currently just $99.99.  A lot of places sell this wedding band by itself for more than that – so this really is a great price.  They make it easy to create your custom band as well.  No need to ship out wax strips to take an imprint.  All you need to do is create a clean fingerprint (for an example of that we suggest checking out their website) and take a good photo with a cell phone and send it in via email.  They will let you know if the print is good or bad, and within a couple of days they will send you the completed ring!

But wait, perhaps you aren’t 100% sure on your size?  Well you can actually order the ring in the size you suspect you are – and they will ship it to you with no engraving.  If you are in the USA and choose this option, they include a prepaid return shipper.  You simply fill out the little form indicating if you need to change sizes, and slip the ring back into your US mail box.  One nice thing about this option – if you are a little on the technically challenged side of things, you can put your paper prints in this mailer, and they will take it from there - no need to try and get them the image from your phone.

We recommend taking a look at their tungsten fingerprint rings.  Here’s a link:

Black Tungsten Rings

RNTU091_ALooking for a great piece of jewelry to show off your dark side?  Perhaps you just love the looks of black jewelry.  Not only is black one of the hottest colors for rings – but tungsten is one of the hottest trends in jewelry.  Over at Ring Ninja they have some stunning solid black tungsten rings.  These rings come in multiple widths.  You can get the rings in either 3MM (great for a woman, or if you’re just looking for that thing band), 6MM wide, 8MM wide, 10MM wide, and even 12MM wide.  All of these black tungsten rings are a pipe cut (also known as flat) style, and have a matte finish.  The matte finish really allows the ring to stay dark, and not be dark a shiny at the same time.  This is a ring in such a timeless, dark style, it would even make the late great Johnny Cash smile as he slid it onto his finger.

Stepped Edge Tungsten Ring with Four Christain Crosses

RNTU055_AMy sisters husband uses his hands a lot for his job as an electrician. He approached me about getting a new wedding band a few weeks ago; he wanted something a little thicker in width than his current 8MM tungsten wedding band. He didn’t want a dramatic change in width size, just a small increase. Most of the people that he works with have tungsten carbide rings because of their durability and strength. An upgrade to a 10MM wide tungsten ring seemed like a doable upgrade; it’s a little larger than an 8MM wide ring but it’s also not overwhelmingly large. He liked the look of 10MM rings, so he decided to have that be the first credential of his new ring purchase. After he decided on the width of the ring, he then stated that he wanted to have crosses on his ring for style. Together we investigated our favorite website to shop for rings: ring-ninja.com. We found the perfect ring: a 10MM wide tungsten carbide ring with four christian crosses. My brother-in-law more specifically liked the stepped edge around the circumference of the ring; it definitely adds some style to what would be a rather plain ring. He purchased his ring from ring-ninja.com for $62.99 and he absolutely loves it! It’s a gorgeous ring and he gets compliments on it everywhere he goes. If you or someone you know of is looking to purchase a tungsten carbide ring, ring-ninja is the place to shop! Ring-Ninja has a variety of products at prices that are unbeatable; it’s definitely worth a browse!

The Hobbit tells the story of the magical gold ring from the Lord of the Rings.  Since the creation of the films, replicas of the ring from the  Lord the Rings movie have become increasingly popular.

The detail on the outer rim of the ring is just enough to add a little flare the the ring while also maintaining its classic appeal. The black inlay down the center of the ring adds a nice neutral tone throughout the circumference of the ring. I knew that this gem I found would be the perfect ring for my friend David, especially since it’s only $59.99! What a deal! David made the decision to purchase the ring featured above as well as three others from Ring-Ninja’s website!

10MM Tungsten and Black Carbon Fiber Ring

The best thing about carbon fiber rings is how nicely they accent a ring without adding additional weight or discomfort, like the 10MM tungsten and black carbon fiber ring featured in the picture.

Benefits of 3MM Tungsten Rings

RNTU023_A At age 24, my fingers are officially done growing, not that they are that long to begin with. I have shorter, stubby fingers which makes is difficult to find rings that won’t strangle my hand. I have always tried to wear larger rings, around 10-12MM because I like the look of them when they aren’t on my finger. Since my fingers are shorter, the wider rings take up the majority of my finger and leave creases of squashed-skin around the ring band. But it doesn’t stop there. In addition to a squashed finger, a wider ring almost always gets stuck on my finger when trying to remove it.

A few weeks ago I decided that for the sake of my finger and my sanity I had to give up with my battles with  wide rings; it was time to accept  that if I wanted to wear rings I would need to make some changes to the types of rings I was wearing.  I did some research and found that decreasing the width of the band would make my fingers look longer and decrease discomfort. Of course! Why hadn’t I realized this before?

I began my hunt for small-width ring band to try out. Whenever I  look for new rings there are always two problems that I encounter: my skin is sensitive, so I always try to get jewelry that won’t irritate my skin; as a recent college grad, I’m not exactly rollin’ in the dough. My specific criteria for a new ring led me to my trusted source of information: Google. I typed in my search bar “cheap tungsten rings” and it brought me to a site, Ring-Ninja.com. I decided to investigate the site to see what they had, which was a lot of different ring options!

I stumbled across a 3MM Tungsten Pipe Cut Ring which looked like a nice classy style that I could wear with a variety of things. Since the ring was priced well at $42.99 I decided to order it and give it a try. The results: I love it! I can wear my new Tungsten Ring with any outfit I own and it looks fabulous! My fingers are no longer strangled by ring bands that are far too wide for my fingers. I am going to send mine back to Ring-Ninja and have them custom engrave my ring, too. Pretty exciting!

I highly recommend this site to anyone that is looking for a quality ring at a great price.

Greek Pride

RNTU037_A During my college years I was fortunate to have the experience of traveling abroad. During my travels I always maintained an equal balance of fear and excitement. It is exciting to experience and absorb new cultures, but it is also terrifying to enter uncharted territory. I am a bit of an adrenalin junkie when it comes to traveling abroad; I always like to be on the line between comfort and discomfort.

Out of the five different European countries I have traveled in, there is one country in particular that I have always wanted to venture to, Greece. In West Michigan, my hometown area, there is a surprisingly large number of full-blooded second generation Greek immigrants. Perhaps this is an exaggeration on my part, but I have three close friends that are in fact second-generation Greek immigrants, meaning their parent(s) came from Greece. All of them have been to Greece a number of times, and I always drool over their stunning photographs and countless stories of their majestic-sounding experiences.
