Question: Can a tungsten, titanium and ceramic rings be resized?

Answer:  NO - Platinum, gold, copper and silver rings can be stretched and shrunk to enlarge or shrink a ring at just about any jeweler to meet any size finger. Tungsten, ceramic and titanium rings are more difficult to resize, and in most cases are not worth the processing costs involved. Design of an inlay or a beveled edge could restrict shaving a fractional layer off the inside of a ring to gain that ¼ to a ½ size difference. In most cases, the appearance of a ring could  be altered for the worse, therefore Forever Metals provides an exchange program for those looking for replacement.

Question: What is the extent of Forever Metals customization?

Answer: All rings are manufactured in bulk and then are stocked, cutting manufacturing time from the minute an order is placed. Customizing a ring is not difficult. However, it takes time of detailed specification. Forever Metals can customize to any specifications.  Please detail an email as to the exact specifications you would like quoted. Attach pictures, logos, tattoos, and fonts you wish to use in crafting your specific ring. There are no returns after engraving or customizing. Please allow 30 days to manufacture.

Question: Are your rings comfort fit or straight fit?

Answer:  All our rings are made with comfort fit, providing optimal comfort while wearing the ring and when placing and removing the ring. Comfort fit style the inside edges are rounded for a smooth fit. Some manufactures claim their comfort fit is better then others. However, Forever Metals disagrees.  As long as the ring doesn't have sharp edges that cut into your skin, you will be alright.

Question: Can Tungsten Carbide Rings ever scratch?

Answer: Yes - Tungsten carbide can only be scratched or damaged by extreme measures, like abrasion from diamonds or corundum. Consequently, activities that would normally require the removal of conventional wedding bands for their protection can be performed without concern by the wearer of a tungsten carbide wedding band. While extremely strong and scratch-resistant, tungsten carbide is a bit more brittle than traditional metals used in wedding bands. Fortunately, our outstanding warranty covers even the unlikely event of your tungsten carbide ring chipping or breaking! If for any reason a ring needs to be exchanged for a different size, repolished, re-textured, or replaced due to boredom, Forever Metals allow exchange through our exchange policy.

Question: How do I get my tungsten, ceramic or titanium ring polished?

Answer: Any ring can be sent back for refinishing. There is a 20% original ring sale price service fee plus S&H fee associated with this service. Please allow up to 60 days from receipt of delivery for this request to be processed. For replacement, please review our exchange program details.

Question: What if a extremely hard ring gets stuck on my finger, can a ring be cut off?

Answer: Tungsten, ceramic or titanium rings can easily be slid off your finger using butter, liquid soap, or hand cream. If your finger gets injured and swells, the ring can be cut off using a ring cutting tool. Rings made extremely hard, like tungsten carbide, can only be removed by cracking them into pieces with standard vice grip style locking pliers. Standard ring cutters will not work. Removing a tungsten ring doesn’t pose much more of a challenge than cutting through a traditional precious metal ring. Every hospital emergency room will be equipped to remove any wedding band in case of an emergency. If you slam your hand in a door or drop a heavy object on your finger, in most cases it is the ring itself causing the hand injury in which it must be cut off. Tungsten, ceramic and titanium rings pose less threat due to the rings being so hard that they don't crush or bend out of place, placing pressures on the finger.  Tungsten has properties where rather then bending and crushing, it would rather fracture into several pieces and fall off your finger freely. You might be safer wearing a tungsten ring than a precious metal band.

Question: Can I supply my own stone to be set in a tungsten / titanium ring?

Answer: Yes - Forever Metals is not responsible for loss or stolen packages.  Please insure and track your package. We will set any gem, however we don't guarantee the gem from cracks chips when placing the gem.  Make sure that your gem is a hard gem on Mohs hardness scale. Please assume all responsibilities with diamonds being that there are many improper certifications and classification on the internet. Be sure to be aware of the 4 c's. Your gem must be strong enough to withstand the tension setting.
