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.

Super Wide Tungsten Wedding Bands

This is one masculine ring.  If you’re in the market for a pipe cut style wedding band, and you want something that is durable, wide, and is sure to get noticed then this may be just the ring for you.  This Super Wide Tungsten Wedding Band from Ring Ninja measures 12MM in width and comes in sizes from 7 all the way up to size 17.  It’s very difficult to find sizes that large these days that don’t cost extra, or takes weeks to order, so if you are looking for a size 16 wedding band, or a size 17 wedding band, this might be the ideal ring for you.

In addition to it’s bold styling, this ring can also be custom engraved.  Not only can this ring be engraved on the outside, but it can be engraved on the inside as well.  At the time we are reviewing this ring, engraving through Ring Ninja is on sale for just $20 per ring, vs the normal price of $24.95.  If you’re looking for a quality engraving job that isn’t going to wear off, and isn’t going to void your warranty – we recommend utilizing Ring Ninja’s high pressure diamond tip rotary engraving service.  We know that laser engraving is the latest ‘hip’ thing, but the fact of the matter is, on custom engraving, it’s just not all that it’s cracked up to be.  After a couple of weeks your custom laser engraving can start to fade – however with a more traditional, all be it very high tech set up and machinery, a diamond etching will out last any custom laser engraving job.  In fact not only will diamond tip engravings not fade, they will actually darken a little bit over time.

As always Ring Ninja is providing competitive pricing, with amazing quality and service.  This ring will carry their standard lifetime warranty, and that warranty is not going to be voided if you’ve decided to engrave your ring.

Be sure to check out their new gold wedding ring collection as well if Tungsten Rings aren’t the direction you’d like to go in.

That’s it until next time!

9MM Laser Etched ‘Celtic’ Tungsten Wedding Ring Stepped Edge

This is truly a great looking ring.  In fact, I’m not even sure you can just refer to it as a ring — this thing is a piece of art.  The way that the center of this ring is raised above the edges, and the center brushed to give it a nice, dark hue, is truly breath taking.  What makes this particular ring a true piece of art though is the laser etched Celtic Knot pattern that stands out on the raised center.  Symbolising two that have become one is really brought to the forefront in the craftsmanship on this ring.

8MM Tungsten Wedding Ring w/ Laser Etched Celtic Cross Pattern Silver Color

This is one of the most unique wedding rings that we’ve ever seen here at Tungsten Ring Review!  This Tungsten Wedding Ring features a slim, flat profile – what’s known as a pipe cut ring in the industry.  The laser etching really shows up great on this ring, the picture doesn’t even do it justice.  If you’re into the Celtic Cross look we’d totally recommend this ring.  Since the ring is made of Tungsten Carbide it will last a lifetime, and will always look polished.  Unlike some rings we’ve seen with a ‘brushed’ finish, this one just doesn’t seem to get dirty, there are no grooves so the ring really doesn’t require cleaning at regular intervals at all.

Tungsten and 18K Gold Tungsten Wedding Ring

So if you’ve been in the market for a Tungsten Ring for any amount of time, you have probably seen Tungsten Rings that have inlays.  This particular Tungsten Ring has what’s known as an ‘overlay’.  Basically an overlay is a fancy word for plating.  Keep in mind there have been many advances in plating over the last 10 years and plating holds up better than it used to.  However, even with all the advances in plating it does have some drawbacks on a Tungsten Ring, however minor these might be.

One thing to really consider – if you’re in the market for a ring that is going to be scratch resistant and durable, you might want to think about looking for a ring that is solid Tungsten Wedding Ring.  No overlay, inlay, etc.  Reason being, if your sole purpose for purchasing one of the beautiful rings is to avoid scratching – the plating is really no stronger (well, not much anyway) than normal 18K gold.  While this is a fine metal, and makes a nice ring – we all know the drawbacks of gold as jewelry.  It’s soft.  It’s expensive.  It scratches easily – remember those old cowboy movies where they’d find gold coins, and they’d want to check to see if it was real, so they’d bite the coin to make sure it was authentic?  Well, they were looking to see if they could bend it – and that’s gold for you.  Soft.
