Glytterati’s 8mm Men’s Black-Ion Plated Titanium Ring

logo

When I got the last ring I reviewed here for hubby, I was pretty happy to report on the quality of Glytterati’s products and hubby liked the ring very much. So I tickled pink to report that their next offering, the Titanium 8mm with Black Ion plating ring, is also the goods.

Once you get past what seems to be the industry standard for titanium and tungsten of whole sizes only, you’re left with a product that fit’s mostly okay but looks like a million bucks. It’s highly polished, incredibly lightweight, and at 8mm should stand out from the crowd. Hubby usually wears a 9mm band on his big ‘ol sausage fingers, but the 8mm doesn’t get lost on him. In fact, the contrast of the high-polished bright titanium and the shiny black ion plating is incredibly striking and I caught more than one person trying to get a better look at Hubby’s new “bling”. Lest we forget this is Hubby we’re talking about, the black ion plating stood up to his, shall we call it “lack of delicate handling” with aplomb and didn’t scratch off like a lesser “painted” finish would. In fact, the titanium was pretty durable and stood up to all manner of abuse before showing any real signs of wear. But it still shines and looks classy, so this one is most definitely a keeper.

The ring is comfort fit, wears well, with no rough edges and being as it’s light, you almost forget that you’re wearing it. Add to that Glytterati’s 100% lifetime satisfaction guarantee as well as their scratch-proof guarantee, and the promise of a 12 hour response time, and you have every reason to get this ring right now. There might be a glut of cheap titanium bands out there, but very few will match the quality and service commitment of Glytterati. You just can’t go wrong.

TAN’s Tungsten Carbide 6mm Women’s Ring

Hubby has sung the praises of his tungsten carbide wedding band for years and years now. He to this day says it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever given him, and it still shines like the day I got it for him. He’s rough on his ring, and once wore a silver one until it looked like it’d been run over by a freight train. But this one takes everything he dishes out and asks for seconds. So when the chance to get one of my own popped up, I was thrilled.

I have a couple of rings, one very nice one Hubby proposed with, and a second one he bought a few years later that is more understated and reflected my changing tastes. But to this day I’d never had just a simple band, and I was very much looking forward to it. I say that in the past tense because, for me, this one missed the mark for it’s intended purpose. I was asked what size ring I wear (Size 6), and I submitted that to them, but when it came time to purchase, the smallest size was a 7. And it’s not like you can size tungsten carbide either. So I still don’t have my simple tungsten wedding band, but I do have a nice ring that is polished to a brilliant shine and hasn’t gotten a single ding or scratch in the days I’ve worn it, and for me that’s a real accomplishment. It’s heavy, and comfort fit so getting it off and on is a breeze. It’s also completely hypoallergenic, and won’t discolor your skin like some silver and costume jewelry will. It even came in a pretty little box and slip sleeve, although the ring was too thick for the ring holder to “grab” properly in the box.

Overall, I highly recommend TAN’S tungsten carbide wedding band if you’re looking for a “beater” ring that won’t ever look beaten. I’m still on the hunt, personally, but for those of you who wear a 7 and above, this ring is real keeper.

Glytterati Men’s Wedding Band Titanium w/ Gold Ion Plating

Hubby wears no jewelry, save for his wedding band. In fact, he’s adamant about it. Years and years ago, I got him a tungsten carbide band, with three diamonds in it. Because he’s rough on his ring, and his old gold band had seen better days. And he needs a ring that can stand up to every day beatings, and still not look like an old run-over lock nut he found in a parking lot. But, steel is steel, even if it’s tungsten, and I wanted something nicer for when we go out, and boy howdy if this Titanium and Gold Band from Glytterati doesn’t fit that need to a tee!

With titanium rings, it seems a lot of manufacturers want to put all manner of goofy inlays, of intricate designs, or laser etch something trendy into it. Finding a simple, elegant ring that is at least 8mm used to be a nightmare for me. Anything smaller on Hubby’s sausage fingers tends to look…feminine. His original tungsten band was 9mm, and it still looked slim on his finger, but the gold ion plating of the Gytterati ring sets off the edges and makes the 8mm band look a little larger.  The gold ion plating runs from one edge, all around the inside, and back to the other edge and is polished to a mirror finish. Running around the middle of the band is a brushed silver titanium that contrasts nicely while having a beautiful luster. The inside of the band is comfort-fit, so sliding the ring off and on won’t be a problem, and it’s thin enough that it won’t add to the callous on his palm like his tungsten ring. It’s also easily half the weight of Hubby’s old tungsten carbide ring, all while being just as thick. The flat edges top and bottom are a little rougher than the rounded edges of his old ring, but the fit is still nice and Hubby frequently forgets he’s wearing it.

One small issue is that, for a lot of these types of rings, they only come in whole sizes, and Hubby is a half. He squeezes his finger into a ten, but really he needs a 10 & 1/2. So my only complaint is I wish they came in half sizes. Titanium wears well and is very scratch resistant, but should you get a scratch on it, there’s almost no way to buff it out like gold, silver or platinum. But Glytterati offers both their “lifetime guarantee” and their “Scratch Proof Guarantee” in which they state should your ring scratch easily, or gets damaged, or you just don’t like it, return it for a full refund. I would assume the return shipping cost is up to you. The Glytterati Titanium Band looks much nicer than the $14.99 price point belies, and I’m glad Hubby got to try one out.
