Duck Dynasty, Lost Wedding Rings and Camo

Thursday, March 28th, 2013

Last night’s Duck Dynasty episode had a bit of a wedding ring flavor to it and it got us thinking.

In the episode, Jase and his wife are in the jewelry store searching for a wedding ring for Jase. No, they aren’t just about to be married or even just married, he’d actually lost his ring years ago! After nearly 20 years without a wedding band on, Missy finally put her foot down and told Jase he had to get a ring.

We hear stories like this all the time. First, we’re always getting calls about lost wedding rings. Guys, you’ve got to be sure to get the best size for you wedding ring or else accidents will happen. And second, like Jase, we get many calls from guys not wanting to wear a wedding band because it’s “too shiny” or they “don’t like jewelry.” That’s fair enough but like Missy, your wife will eventually put her foot down and you don’t want to have to go the tattoo route that Willie almost convinced Jase to take.

In the end guys, you really have no excuse for not having a wedding band on. Before now, guys rings were usually modeled on ladies bands. So, its understandable why men in the past felt awkward wearing wedding bands. But now, with tungsten wedding rings and other rugged bands engineered specifically for guys tastes and their activities, there is definitely a wedding ring out there for you.

The Duck Dynasty guys got us thinking about what kind of wedding rings they might be perfect for. Naturally, as a family outfitted head to toe in camouflage almost 24/7, we immediately thought of our line of camo wedding bands. Jase may not have wanted something “too shiny” but we don’t think he’d argue with a black camo wedding ring that would blend right in while he is out hunting.

Have you lost your wedding ring and needed to replace it? Or is the ring you have now not manly enough? We want to hear from you.

Rose Gold Blooms in Spring!

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

It’s spring time! Which also means that it’s allergy season. Pollen is in the air from all the flowers that have sprung. But what else is in the air? It seems that couples are tying the knot left and right! Why is it that people seem to fall in love and take the plunge more often in the spring?

Scientifically speaking, it’s because of dopamine. Many educational and scientific articles state that spring allows more dopamine to be produced than in other seasons. Dopamine is responsible for reward-drive learning and a trigger for wanting new experiences. In spring, everything is new compared to winter: new colors, new smells, more outside activities, and even seeing more skin. This triggers the desire for more dopamine, which also gives us a good indicator as to why spring is regarded as the season of love (or at least first and new loves).

The season of love also happens to be wedding season. With the snow melting away and plant life reviving itself into bloom, spring is the perfect time for couples to hold their ceremonies and receptions. The weather is beautiful and guests are generally more available due to spring and summer break, as well as holidays. Gorgeous scenery deserves equally gorgeous decor and jewelry, specifically, rose gold.

Rose gold jewelry is rising in popularity within the fashion and wedding industry. Its unique color and shine make it one of the most sought after precious metals for spring weddings. Rose gold is widely used as an accent color for jewelry, such as this stunning tungsten ring with rose gold and silver inlay.


Rose gold can also be a flattering jewelry option for brides walking down the aisle. A small necklace with a rose gold hearts adds a nice touch of elegance to any dress.


This spring, whether you find yourself feeling all giddy inside saying I do or just contemplating where to plan your 1st date, remember that it’s probably the dopamine from all of Spring’s magical effects. Either way, make the best of the most enjoyable season of the year while looking good!

St. Patrick’s Day: Separating the Myths from the Facts

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

shamrock

We’re all a bit Irish one day every year. On March 17, people across the US and Ireland will don green, wear shamrocks and celebrate the feast of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. Always a day of great joy and good fun, there are stories abound regarding the legend of St. Patrick. And as with all great legends, somethings are true and others… well, let’s just say the facts have been stretched a bit.

Get ready for St. Patrick’s Day this Sunday with a rundown of the facts and myths told regarding St. Patrick:

MYTH: St. Patrick was Irish

Actually, St. Patrick was from Britain. He was taken as a slave from his homeland to Ireland. While tending sheep in his new country, Patrick converted to Christianity. After years in servitude, Patrick had a dream calling him to escape his captors and spread the Gospel to the Celtic people of the region. Although he wasn’t Irish, and evangelizing the people of Ireland was tough work, after his death, the legend of Patrick grew throughout Ireland – which remains a deeply Christian country to date. He would later be considered an honorary Irishman, as he was named the patron saint of the island in the century following his death.

FACT: St. Patrick used a shamrock to teach the Celts

It’s true. The three-leafed clover helped Patrick teach the Celtic and Gaelic peoples about the Holy Trinity. Botanists agree the clover that still dominates much of Ireland and Europe was around in the days of Patrick and very well could have been used by the saint.

MYTH: St. Patrick drove all the snakes from Ireland

Sadly, this is only a myth. While there were no snakes in Ireland after St. Patrick, there were likely none there before him. The small island surrounded by icy waters has never had a snake problem and likely this more a metaphor relating to Patrick’s driving out of the devil (commonly depicted as a serpent) and converting all of Ireland.

MYTH: St. Patrick wore green

If you’re daring enough to not wear green on St. Patrick’s Day, you might be risking a bit of a pinching from your friends and family. Many people think we wear green because the saint himself did so. In fact, Patrick likely wore blue according to scholars. Green was adopted due to Ireland being known as the “Emerald Isle.” Irish-Americans adopted this color to celebrate their patron saint’s feast day in remembrance of their home.

FACT: We’re all a bit lucky on St. Patrick’s Day

March Madness: Support Your Team With THE Ring!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

March Madness is soon to be upon us! The craziest 4 weeks of basketball beckons one question: Will your school be the last one standing? The tournament frenzy comes with a lot of stress for both the teams and the fans. Ranked schools from Men and Women’s Division 1 Basketball of the NCAA will play just one elimination game per bracket to decide who moves on in the tournament. Even more strenuous is the fact that college games are played with just two halves at 20 minutes each. This may be one of the reasons why college basketball fans are so loyal, because they know that in order for a team to win the tournament, they have to perform under clutch moments.

We’re talking about outfitting yourself in gear that not every fan would even think about! For instance, engraved tungsten rings: Getting a colored ring can appear a little tacky, but what if you could customize a ring that had your school’s Alma Mater or motto engraved on it? Or how about a ring that bears the same name and resemblance as your school’s mascot? Tungsten World offers a more personal customization experience for customers to receive more control over what their ring can have engraved on! The best rings also have the best names, making it even more essential to purchase to differentiate yourself from the rest of the fans.

The Michigan State Spartans are doing well this year, but will have to pull some major upsets if they insist on becoming the ultimate champions in the Men’s tournament. Luckily for you, one of our black diamond tungsten rings was named the Spartan, due it’s resilient look and tough appeal.


In Women’s NCAA Basketball, the Lady Flyers of Dayton are climbing up the ranks in hopes of clinching the championship by the end of the season. Though not exactly named the same, our camo rings all have aviator inspired names, such as the Interceptor pictures above. If you’re cheering on the Flyers, you’ll want this ring as your good luck charm the whole way!


The women of the North Carolina Tar Heels are making quite an impact in the rankings as well! With their mascot Rameses, the Lady Tar Heels hope to reach the finals this year. The Ramses black ceramic and tungsten ring is available for all Tar Heel fans to show their love for Rameses the mascot.

Whether your school is going to the Final Four or not, every avid fan knows that they’ll always root for their team through thick and thin. Show your school spirit by getting a one of a kind piece of tungsten jewelry that will last just as long as your loyalty.
