I scour the internet daily for competitions that I can enter – and hopefully win something. I have been quite lucky, but husband is forever saying to me, “Can’t you enter a competition that I benefit from as well?” So around Valentine’s Day I entered a few competitions with goodies for HIM, & I won the best prize of all – a ring from VA-Tungsten.
Warren used to work in finance. So yes, he was that man that was smartly dressed in a suit, with his hair combed and perfectly polished shoes. Unfortunately he was retrenched, and searched for over a year for a job. He knew he didn’t want to go back into this industry, and I have to say that I was grateful for this too. I feel like he lost a bit of his soul whilst working as a financial advisor, and he often came home more stressed than is healthy. So when he told me he wanted to work with cars, I was super excited – not only for him, but also for us as a family as I could see his happiness returning in leaps and bounds.
So he joined with 2 mates and began their business of car restoration. He works hard every single day and comes home filthy dirty, and stinking like oil and grease. But boy oh boy is he happy! And that makes me happy.
Back to why I was so excited to win this ring for him though… His original wedding band has my dad’s wedding ring melted down into Warren’s ring he had – so it holds a lot of sentimental value. And working with his hands, as well as getting down and dirty in the engines and running of cars meant this was getting scratched and damaged during his daily activities. He started to remove his ring when he left in the mornings, and this is just made juju in my opinion! So having a hardy tungsten ring was the best option.
Plus did I mention how flipping gorgeous his ring is? We were given the choice of any ring on their website, and we spent ages scouring through what they have available before settling on TUR750 as what he wanted, and then popped into our local jeweller to get the correct sizing before placing our order. Within 2 days the ring was delivered to my office and it was even better than I hoped. It is heavy, bold & absolutely gorgeous.

Tungsten Wedding Rings
The Ancient Egyptians believed that the vein that runs through the third finger on the left hand flowed directly to the heart. The Romans called it the Vena Amoris, meaning ‘Vein of Love’. As a ring has no beginning or end, it symbolizes love and unity…
Tungsten carbide is the new, most popular metal today for men’s wedding ring. The heavy weight and luxurious finish of a tungsten carbide ring speak of commitment, strength and an everlasting bond. The metal will always maintain its beautiful, scratch-resistant finish, making them the perfect choice for your loved ones wedding ring.
At VA Tungsten, we identified the need within men’s jewellery for a hard wearing, affordable ring that offers durability and sophistication. Men’s wedding rings up to now have been limited to very simple designs, and with much of a selection. Most of the men’s rings available today that are made from expensive, precious metals are all prone to scratches and abrasion, and some of these metals are almost impossible to remove in an emergency.
Tungsten is one of the safest metals on the market and with its unique comfort-fit design, they are not only comfortable to wear, the comfort fit acts as a cushion which helps the ring grip onto your finger. Our hand-picked selection of rings includes black-plating, ceramic and carbon fiber inlays that are fused into the metal, giving you a unique variety of tungsten rings to choose from. Our exclusive range of tungsten rings are a fraction of the price when compared to other precious metal wedding rings, but offers the same feeling of elegance and class. They are modern, bold and above all, strong!

Tungsten Carbide – ‘A tough metal for a tough guy’
Warren now wears his wedding band daily, and with pride. And we have got so many comments about how much other people like it too! I was also so impressed by the level of care I received during the whole decision of which one to choose, and the speed at which this was delivered to us.
