New Year’s Resolutions

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

New Year's Promotion

Happy New Year to all from Tungsten World! It’s now the day after New Year’s, all the champagne has been finished, the balloons and streamers put away and for most of us, the holidays have come to a close. As the second day of a new year, January 2nd is one of the most popular days for either starting or breaking a New Year’s resolution. Will you be as strong as tungsten and hold firm to your goals for the new year? Whether it’s your second go around with the same resolution from last year or you’ve been on a roll crossing off resolutions year after year, we can all relate with some of the more popular resolutions made each New Year’s Eve. Here’s a list of some of the more popular resolutions, maybe even a few we are working on around here:

Treadmill Running

Work Out Everyday – Everyone knows the gym is packed today. New memberships must be sky high on the day after New Year’s and understandably so. But every year the crowd seems to thin out and there’s an extra treadmill or two come March and April. If this is you, you’re not alone. You probably even have a close friend in the same boat, get them to push you and vice versa. The gym is always better with a friend anyways and you’re less likely to drop out when someone’s sweating it out with you.

Lose weight/Diet – This sometimes goes hand and hand with the gym, but maybe you just want to eat better. Whether its a few pounds or a lot, it’s never easy. There’s still holiday food circling the office here, so we know its tough. Maybe its time to put those sweets away now that the family is gone and get back to more veggies and green stuff. We’re right behind you… just one last cookie though first.

One Last Cookie

Quit Smoking – Another tough one and probably the most common resolution behind losing weight. No tips for this one, you just got to go for it. And if you quitting smoking and resolving to go to the gym more, not smoking can only help your treadmill times, right?

Any others? What resolutions do you have this New Year? And are you still keeping to them? It’s never to late to get a resolution and it’s still too early to quit! Happy New Year and here’s to all your resolutions!

Hi-Fi Weddings: Your Wedding, Your Music

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

Many people will agree that music is one of the most important factors when planning for a wedding. The music sets the mood for both the ceremony and the reception, and the transition of events within the two can be either smooth or shaky, depending on how the music is executed.

The good people over at hifiweddings.com know this all too well, so they’ve compiled a list of songs and mixes to aid you in your search for the perfect songs for your important day. They also provide a very deep vendor’s list, properly categorized in alphabetical order, for everything else related to weddings. Yours truly, Tungsten World, made the list under jewelry!

Orchestra wedding music makes for a traditional, grand entrance.

Or you could go with a more energetic approach and dance your way through the aisle!

In any case, we hope that you find the music and style that fits your wedding. Comment with any videos of noteworthy entrances and first dance songs!

Should She Pick Her Engagement Ring?

Monday, August 20th, 2012

So, you’re thinking about popping the question. Yes, THE question.

Now, you’re ring shopping with literally thousands of engagement rings styles to choose from and wondering which ring she will like best. After all, this is the ring you’ll be proposing to her with, it’s got to be perfect. And you know that. Problem is, so does she.

While you’ve just started shopping for that engagement ring, she’s had the engagement ring of her dreams in mind for quite some time. With this in mind, should you be letting her pick her engagement ring?

As with anything, there are pros and cons to this idea:

PROS:
- You can’t go wrong with style having her pick
- She’ll be happy you included her and brag to her friends
- Since she picked, you know she’ll be proud to wear the ring

CONS:

- If she picks you’re budget could be out the window
- It won’t be a surprise

You know your own situation the best, so pick which works best for you. More and more men are allowing their loved one to come shopping for her engagement band with them. Will you be one of them?

We’ve Got a Winner!

Monday, July 9th, 2012

At Tungsten World, we’re always looking for feedback from customers regarding the tungsten wedding bands they’ve purchased and our service. As a thank you, each quarter we randomly select one customer’s review from the many hundreds we receive throughout the three months to be our review of the quarter. Winners receive a stunning tungsten carbide watch with swiss quartz movement, and we’ve just had another winner!

Congratulations go out to Tim in South Carolina. We numbered all the reviews received from April through the end of June, and Tim’s was selected by a random-number generator. As our “Review Your Tungsten Ring Contest” winner, we’re sending Tim the tungsten watch below:

Tungsten Watch with Swiss Quartz Movement

Tungsten World wants to thank all the customers that sent in reviews, your comments help us keep our tungsten rings and customer service at the absolute best year in and year out and even help other customers decide the best ring for them with all your great advice. So thank you, and thank you, Tim. Below is the winning review Tim sent in:

I have had this ring for the past almost 3 1/2 years. This is actually the second ring I have had. The first ring i received was Thor. Which, by the way, is an awesome ring. I loved that one as well. The reason I switched to the Infinity was after about eight months I lost a considerable amount of weight and my first ring was falling off constantly. (Side note, return policy is awesome and super easy to use!) When I switched to the Infinity ring I loved it the second it came out of the box. Still love it and all this time later it still looks just as nice and shiny as the first day i received it. I don’t take it off to do outside work either. One afternoon I had to carry some cinder blocks across the yard not thinking about it I picked up the first set of blocks (one in each hand). As the full weight of the blocks was pressing into my hands I felt what can only be described as a digging gash into my ring. Scared to look at it at that point i carried the blocks expecting to be very upset when i put them down. Upon setting the blocks down and looking to my ring to see how bad the damage was. I was amazed to see nothing! not one scuff let alone scratch. These rings are super tuff! Not once have i had a regret with this company or this ring! In fact I have referred three of my friends to Tungsten World and all of them have bought their wedding rings from here and they all love theirs as well.

10 Must-haves for a Groom on the Big Day

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Here’s a fun one for your Monday. We put together a list of the 10 must-haves for a groom on his wedding day. Some are absolutely essential, some are no-brainers, and some are just funny.

Did you remember these on your big day?

10. Dress Socks- Leave the white athletic socks at home, guys. Those white cotton socks are not going to look good with your tux. Trust us.

9. Watch- Don’t be late on your wedding day!

8. Directions- Sure you picked out the venue, but with the hundreds of things on your mind on your wedding day, a set of directions just in case might be prudent.

7. Tie- Whether it’s a bow tie or traditional tie, we know you hate wearing them and you’re going to only put it on at the very last minute. Just be sure you have it with you. Running home to get it before the ceremony starts would be no fun.

6. Bride’s gift- It’s traditional for bride and groom to exchange gifts before the wedding. We recommend something she can wear during the wedding like a tungsten heart pendant, but whatever you decide to get for her, don’t forget it. And wrap it nicely, too!

5. Cellphone- You never leave home without it anyways, right? Just be sure it’s off during the ceremony.

4. Vows- Especially if you wrote your own, a few note cards will fit nicely in your pocket and there’s no shame taking them out of you need them.

3. Deodorant- You don’t want to sweat through your tux and after the long night you’ll spend dancing after the ceremony, your bride will thank you.

2. Groomsmen Gifts- Another tradition, get the guys backing you up something nice to wear as a thank you. Watches are a classy gift or even matching cufflinks for them to wear during the ceremony.

1. The Wedding Rings- A million and one things on your mind and you forget the wedding rings? Don’t be that groom. You and your bride are the stars of the day, but your durable tungsten wedding bands are the symbol that seals the deal.

Camo Rings, Flag Day and the Army’s Birthday

6mm or 8mm: Which Width is Right for You?

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Are 6mm rings for women? Do men’s bands only come in 8mm? Can a lady wear an 8mm tungsten ring? These are all questions we answer frequently for our customers in regards to the width of their wedding ring or casual tungsten band. And the truth is, your ring’s width is just as personal as your ring size.

But if you are still unsure what width will look best on your hand, whether it’s 6mm or 8mm, or even 4mm or 10mm, here is a quick guide:

CLASSIQUE 6MM

MODERNO 8MM

- 8mm wide tungsten rings and cobalt ring are generally preferred by guys due to their longer fingers. But with sizes as low as 6.0, wider rings for ladies are now in vogue.

- For matching wedding sets, couples will usually get 6mm wide for the woman and 8mm wide for the man. (For more on the difference between men’s and women’s rings, see our resource page on the subject HERE.)

- 4mm is almost always a lady’s band, however, men not use to wearing jewelry or looking for a very traditional wedding band width (traditional wedding bands were 4mm to 5mm for men and women) will also wear 4mm wide rings.

- 10mm is the widest width we carry, while it’s only 2mm wider than our 8mm rings, it does look considerably wider once on your finger.

Choosing the Right Tungsten Retailer: Getting a Forever Wedding Band

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

If you’re in the market for wedding bands, you’re well aware there are hundreds of online jewelers and retailers vying for you business. Nothing wrong with a bit of choice. But how do you know you’re getting a wedding band that is going to last the test of time?

If it’s unique and durable wedding bands that you’re looking for, here’s a few tips on finding the right retailer for your forever tungsten wedding band:

- Judge a book by its cover: What does the retailer’s homepage look like? Are their products organized and pictures clear? Is it easy to navigate and can you find their contact information easily? These are all questions you’ll want to have in mind as you shop the online retailer’s equivalent of a first impression.

- Warranties and Policies: While tungsten wedding bands and cobalt rings are the toughest on the market, what if something goes wrong? Make sure the retailer prominently displays their warranty and policies in the off chance you need to have your ring repaired or replaced.

- Too High, Too Low: Price obviously matters, but is the retailer’s price too good to be true? There’s a big different between well-price tungsten wedding bands and “cheap” tungsten wedding bands
