Local Hero asked:


I cut rings from a lathe with a groove for a gold wire. The gold is 14k (I know 24K is more malliable but that's what people want from me). I won't say how I'm doing it now because I'd like a lot of opinions and techniques. My biggest problem is making the band seamless. Any tips or tricks would be helpful. Thanks!

WEDDING RING FOR HIM! I need help?

Okay, so him and i have come to the conclusion that If I have an engagement ring, he should too..

I've been trying to get ahold of this before this saturday because it's my familiy's christmas party and he needed a gift so i thought a ring would be the perfect thing.

But here's the problem, I've only found one site that has a ring like the one he wants..but it isn't in his size right now

And here's one that i found in his size,but i'm not sure if he'd like it because it isnt the blue that he's been looking for so badly(he's picky about color, but i can't blame him)

So what do you guys think i should do? I want him to get his ring as soon as possible and was hoping to have it for this saturday..but i'm not sure if he'd like it as much as the blue. Should i wait(though i dont know how long) or should I just get that one and hopes he likes it?

I could always get him the other one if he doesnt I guess..I dont know

My partner and I have been looking for a mens tungsten carbide ring with mokume gane inlay. We've found several online, but are unable to find them at a jewelry store. We live in the SF bay area. Does anyone know where we might find one?

Nate P asked:


I have begun looking for a men's wedding wedding band and I really like the look of silver colored metal (titanium, tungsten, etc.) with a carbon fiber inlay. My only concern is, what happens several years down the road when my ring is scratched? Can carbon fiber be polished? As a side question, can rings with carbon fiber inlays be resized?
