Ring – Advice Needed
Was looking at Wedding Rings at the weekend and found a couple I like.
One is Titanium the other is Tungsten Carbide.
Anybody have any experience with either? I’m quite clumsy when it comes to jewellery so want something hard wearing that I’m not going to dent or scratch.Posted 9 years agoredtedMember
My bro has a Ti one, very hard wearing and doesn’t show scratches. I wore a ring first time round and hated every moment I wore it. Plus I always had the “bloke who jumped up to hang the net up on a goal post and got the ring caught on the hook” story at the back of my mind rather than it reminding me about my wife. Got a nice Omega Seamaster watch this time round. It’s about my only posession I have any sentimental attachment and would save from a burning building, despite being relatively easy to replace. I wear it day in, day out whatever I’m doing. The new wife’s alot nicer too!Posted 9 years ago
Coffeeking-mr b.h. doesn’t wear one. I’m always a bit scared of them getting caught in something when doing his sports and mechanics in the garage.
You take them off for that. I dont wear one (not currently married either!) but I do own one, I find it gets in the way of most stuff and feels “odd”, I find myself playing with it (oh dear god) all the time and it irritates me. I have very large knuckles and relatively slim fingers so it feels like quoit over a pencil. Still think my other half will demand I wear one when it does happen !Posted 9 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
I’ve just got married and I agree, I look silly in a ring but the wife insisted. So, I went to G H Moore in Birmingham and had grade 5 titanium rings. They warn you when you buy them, that they’re so tough that hospitals will not be able to cut the ring off in the event of an accident.
For mountain biking/snowboarding/spannering etc, I wear it around my neck on a piece of waxed cotton from the hobby store.
As rings go, it’s the best of bad bunch, it’s 4mm wide and 1.5mm deep.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
Simple, old fashioned, plain gold. The yellow coloured stuff. Good enough for the Mayans, Aztecs, Incas, Egyptians..
Platinum? Rather have Silver. White Gold? Don’t see the point. Titanium? For making bikes out of.
I’m not yet married btw; just think Gold is timeless.Posted 9 years agoNZColSubscriber
Mines white with a red deck and an underslung rudder, 6.1m long, Fenn Mako6….ahhhh the ring is Ti, was shiny but i got them to buff it down and its matt now. Don;t really care for a ring as I am skinny finger/fat knuckle but hey the wife wants me to have one so i will do as she pleases !Posted 9 years ago
