Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


One Ring to Rule Them All

Yep, that's the inscription - one ring to rule them all (if you don't get it, go watch Lord of the Rings) - on the inside of the new wedding band I got for Army of Dad courtesy of Tungsten Wedding Rings.

We selected the 6mm version of the flat step down Tungsten carbide ring. It is beautiful and the thing we are most excited about is the prospect of it not getting all scratched.

You see, my husband plays and coaches sports and works doing a little bit of everything. His job is running a warehouse, but he finds himself driving a fork lift, cutting materials, killing rats, inspecting leaky roofs ... you name it. So, he is a jack of all trades and getting his hands dirty from time to time. So, his lovely gold band is all scratched.

We're hoping this one lives up to the claims of keeping its shine and not scratching. I think we will definitely keep you posted on it. I think it is really lovely. Masculine, yet beautiful.

    Seems your husband deserves a purdy ring like that one there!

    I think he does, too. There are few men that work harder than he does and I'm lucky to have him around.

    i have been wearing a tungsten ring for about two and a half years now and it almost looks as good as it did the day my wife gave it to me. i really like the heavy feeling it has and the shine. a jeweler tried to tell me oh it is just a fad and it won't hold value, well i don't plan on selling it anytime soon.

    I am actually surprised that metals like titanium and tungsten are in such high demand. Neither tungsten nor titanium can be sized, so don’t gain or lose any weight! Then again, the styling of wedding bands created with these metals tends to be much different than more traditional designs created in platinum, palladium or gold.

    Also, here’s a guide to help you choose the right metal for your engagement ring, wedding band or wedding ring -
