I don’t usually associate male jewelry with being “badass” but when you’ve reached a certain milestone in your life, you might have to rock that ring ‘til death do you part. A close friend of mine, soon to be hitched, excitedly showed me a link to a black tungsten ring that really almost makes it okay for you to be wearing a ring 24/7, regardless of your marital status.
The name “tungsten” comes from the Nordic tung sten, literally translated as ‘heavy stone’. Of all metals in their pure form, tungsten has the highest melting point and highest tensile strength. In a nutshell, that means tungsten is one of the toughest materials around. The black tungsten ring then becomes a bauble representative of violent beauty, a trinket symbolic of the progress of man through the taming and beautification of one of the most stubborn elements around. You can clearly see the workmanship put into the ring in its midnight polish, perfect curve and balanced weight.
The black tungsten ring certainly does make a lasting impression. It stands out head and shoulders above your typical, run-of-the-mill wedding band. If you’re willing to deviate from the traditional route, give tungsten a chance. I’ll bet that when you’ve seen and felt the ring in person, you won’t be having any second thoughts.
