On Andy’s potential wedding band front, he wants tungsten.
Tungsten is a great idea. That’s what I got for mine. Wikipedia says:
Its hardness makes it ideal for rings that will resist scratching, and are hypoallergenic and will not need polishing, which is especially useful in designs with a brushed finish.
I’m sure you know all of this already, but just in case:
- looks awesome
- feels awesome
- doesn’t scratch easily
- can kick other things’ asses
- makes a satisfying THUNK when it hits things
- heavy (may not really be a disadvantage — I don’t mind it)
- can never be resized
- supposedly can’t be cut off if you get in an accident and your hand swells, which supposedly means they’d need to amputate your finger. (This claim could probably use some scrutiny.)
I’ve received tons of compliments on mine from both sexes. Nobody knows what it is, but everyone wants it.
Enjoy, and congratulations again on (soon) getting married!
