What do polished titanium rings look like after they've been worn a while? I want to buy
I love the mirror polish and look of white gold (but I was allergic and it's expensive), silver (scratches and doesn't last), and white tungsten carbide (The only company
that makes white
tungsten doesn't make size 91/4
I love my current
(but too big) white tungsten ring. It has barely scratched at all and it is still beautiful. But I need one that fits, and I love the inner wood inlay
bands that I've seen on Etsy.
But they usually work with titanium and I have concerns. In some pictures, it kind of looks like a steel ring, but in others, it can have that perfect silver polish. How does the polish compare to the above rings? Also, how long does it last? I know titanium will scratch eventually--what does it look like after a year of use? How long toes it take to lose it's shine and start approaching a more satin finish, as described here
? I don't mind re-polishing a ring every few years, but if I have to do it more than that, I don't want titanium.
Basically, I want the wood inlay ring I first linked to, but in white tungsten carbide--however I've emailed the ringsmiths, and they won't do it. So what is the deal with the ring that is pictured--it looks more like steel than platinum. What should I do?
