And if the marriage doesn't work out, you can get that lil' lady a pair of concrete boots.

Not married yet...but hopefully, a little sinatra, a little tony bennet, and some dean martin...all in the band... :laughing:

Tungsten...with a white gold band in the center. Loving it too.

Lead. For when I need to melt it down and make a bullet.

Easier to anchor the ball/chain in concrete.

Cool.

I don't wear mine anymore. I almost ripped my finger off a few times while doing DIY jobs. After dangling from a metal roof by my ring finger, I decided to give it to my wife to put in her jewelry box.

be careful what you choose. Being blue collar, should my ring get stuck (crushed) onto my finger, I want the meds to be able to cut it off reasonably easy and fast.

tungsten carbide makes a really cool ring but they cannot cut it off.
the stainless in the add is not much better. I have seen titanium as well.

I like to think my ring metal reflects my heart:

soft and mellow yellow gold.

If that's the criteria, my ex's should have been made from raisins and coal.

A true tungsten ring won't bend out-of-round. The metal with crack and shatter off of your finger if enough pressure is applied.

My design is like this - except in gold

That's great...and unfortunately I understand...doubt the ex does...
