Shipping is $1.99. I like the domed ring with two outer groves. It is very classy!

I'm wearing the brushed center one right now and I love it. I ordered one of the flat top polished ones in the wrong size and ended up ordering this one instead of waiting for the other to come back into stock. This one is great because it really doesn't show wear and tear too bad. I would recommend the polished ones for somebody who doesn't bang their rings around much or if you take it off frequently to do manual work. I'm a "put it on and leave it there" kind of guy, myself.

ER doctors hate these things. They are near impossible to cut off after a trauma. Why risk your finger?

@hdtvcamera: I think it's because for most people, it's the least-used finger. Which is why we put a round hunk of metal that gets in the way on that particular finger instead of on the dominant hand or on the more useful fingers of the off hand. I see your point, but the vast majority of people will go their entire lives without needing to have a ring removed by an E.R. doctor.

I'm willing to accept the risk. Life is short and ring fingers aren't good for much else than holding rings.

You may be thinking of tungsten carbide. Titanium is essentially equivalent to stainless steel in hardness, (Commercial titanium = 200 on the Brinell scale, stainless steel = usually about 160-400 depending on the treatment), so these shouldn't be any more difficult to remove than a steel ring, which is easily cut with a tungsten saw.
BTW, the tungsten ring thing is a myth- paramedics and ER docs have devices that are basically little vises that they use to shatter the tungsten rings- actually safer now than cutting off a softer metal.

@hdtvcamera: you are mistaken. Titanium is strong, thus a longer more durable ring. But it can "easily" be cut in the case of an emergency.

@homingi: Titanium gets scratches, tungsten doesn't. I have wedding bands in both metals. I love my titanium though, it is extremely light.

And tungsten carbide is easily cracked with a hammer if you need to get it off in an emergency. It is actually easier than cutting, but usually there is a vise grip type device that is used to apply pressure and snap the ring off.

I don't care what Snopes says. Easily cut off, no. Gold rings easily cut with hand held cutters.
A jeweler saw working on your hand after a hand trauma or other medical related edema is not "easy" and the tissue needs to be compressed to get bolt cutters or a saw in place. (Nobody uses a saw) It can be painful.
If you are unable to make it to an emergency facility in due time you risk your finger. Perhaps you bring a large set of bolt cutters with you whenever you camping, rock-climbing....

You can continue to give me the finger. Fair warning is all I have to say.

@hdtvcamera: I think there are a lot more imminent threats in life... like driving every day. If you take the time to consider every potential hazard, I don't think you'd end up living much of anything :)

In for one of the brushed center! I like to live life on the edge, after all.

@y2ktj: I understand your point is that the metal is brittle. And in an emergency you do what you have to do. A hammer to remove a ring? I hope I don't have to count on my wife to hit with accuracy.

@diaok: Too true. Driving is one of the most dangerous things we do every day.

I've been wearing a Titanium wedding ring for over 6 years (not from this specific vendor though titanium nonetheless) and have had no problems with it. My fingers do swell periodically but never have I had an emergency requiring the ring to be removed at an ER.

I do suggest, though, that any potential buyer get their fingers sized professionally. I used a "print-your-own-size-guide" and accidentally undersized my finger. Now I have a ring I can't slide back over my own knuckles even when my fingers aren't swollen (though the ring still turns fine). Of course my wife is fine with that because it means the ring will never come off.

Yes titanium is harder then hell to cut. However it has a really hard time with compression or being stretched out. That's why we have a tool at the hospital specifically that does this. the ring is shattered but the patients fingers are saved.

Half tempted to stock up on a few in case my hubby loses his wedding ring. Alas, I can't get any because my ring finger is a size 5...

OK it been a while and my info is incorrect. Most emergency rooms now have devices to remove rings. I admit it, I'm a moron.

vote-for3vote-against

MOST but not all ED's (emergancy Department) and Ambulance squads have updated there emergancy ring removal equipment. I have worked in so many ring dangerous fields that I have barely worn my ring in 13yrs of marriage. I have seen a friend "deglove" his finger. I am a nurse who is considered a ring removal expert in my hospital (I can normally get a ring off w/o cutting, and have only failed twice). A gold ring can easily be cut, the ring and finger saved, and a jeweler can repair the ring. To remove these rings they need a special tool. If the hospital doesn't have it, you risk loosing your finger in the rare event that your finger is involved in a trauma causing severe edema (swelling). The person above seems to me to simply be making people aware of this information, and potential buyers should be happy to have it, so they may make an informed decision.

I had one of the triple groove. In person, it sorta looks like you're wearing a bolt or some threaded thing.

I lost it.

Now I think I'll buy a different one!

i was looking at tungsten and titanium before i got married. all the titanium rings were closer to $50-100 or more. why are these so cheap? is there a difference in titanium metals like there are is with steal? are these inferior titanium? i'm just wondering why the ones i looked at were so much more (i ended up with my grandfathers ring for free)

vote-for4vote-against

This seems pretty cheap. I wonder what the scrap/salvage cost for titanium is.

*steel, not steal. i tried to edit my mistake, but it was too late, and that kind of typo bugs the hell out of me and i wouldn't be able to sleep until i corrected myself

I've been wearing an "aircraft-grade" (whatever that means) titanium ring since getting married 6 years ago. I've never taken it off, and I honestly think it holds up pretty well. I lift weights with it on, and the rough steel bar has never gouged the surface. It could use a polishing (is that even possible), but for an everyday use ring, titanium is the way to go...

Just ordered my third Tanga ring,liked the first two so wanted to try another style. My real wedding band is 108 years old and I hope to pass it on to the forth generation so it's been put away for safe keeping.

Just got an awesome titanium/carbon fiber ring for $15.99 + $2 shipping. 10 bucks more but also 10x more awesome.

ended up getting 4 different rings. none in my preferred thumb/index finger size left, but nothing a good stretch cant fix.

The deal is still active, sort of. The grooves in the middle one is still there, but I think the others are new (including a black colored one).

I have a titanium wedding band and like it a lot - light, sturdy and nearly indestructible (I haven't tried to hold open hydraulically operated pressure doors a la "The Abyss"). I haven't noticed scratching or other problems though I do hit it with some metal polish once a year or so.
