Father's Day will soon be here, and with it will grow that impending sense of dread you experience every year. What are you going to get that special man in your life? Do not just settle on cliche gifts of the past.
Power tools, golf clubs and ugly ties cannot show a dad or husband how appreciated he really is. This year, dads all across the country could be receiving tungsten rings for men, and they will feel truly appreciated because of it.
Over the last couple years, men's jewelry has come to the fore largely due to the fact that producers have been exploring different metals. Gone were the materials that composed most women's jewelry like gold, silver or platinum. As tastes changed, men's jewelry metals changed with them, and tungsten shot to the top of the list mostly due to its ability to convey strength and power in a way not many other metals could.
Tungsten is a hard, dense metal, with a high melting point. It is used in many industrial, military and aerospace endeavors for just this fact. However, it is prone to easy scratching and other damage, making it a poor choice for jewelry of any type. However, when tungsten is combined with a carbon alloy, it retains its original properties, and gains two more. It maintains a high polished finished like no other material, and it is virtually scratch-resistant.
What better way to show your dad, or the father to your children, how much you respect and appreciate all the sacrifices he makes for the family he loves. Honor your unbending love for him with a physical representation of the same - a tungsten ring that will never be damaged.
Father's Day gifts do not stop at tungsten rings for men, however. Bracelets, watches, cufflinks, pendants and watches all make great gifts that are as timeless as a family's love for the man that wears them. Tungsten is fairly affordable as well. Kids wanting to show the man that has loved them as long as they can remember can make it a Father's Day to remember without breaking open the piggy bank. Moms have a chance as well to give the gift that will remind the father of their children that he is appreciated and loved.
Tungsten rings for men are here to stay, and will never go out of style. Because of that, you will know for many Father's Days to come that Dad will know what you really mean to him.
There are a few things to keep in mind when picking out that special ring for dad, or your husband. The hardiness of a tungsten ring does come with one drawback. Because they resist bending and damage as well as they do, they cannot be resized. Make sure when picking out the perfect ring for your dad that you know what size will fit him perfectly. Also, make sure to pick a ring that is cobalt free. Some rings use cobalt in the production process, making an overall cheaper ring, but one that may react with oils in the skin that can create permanent oxidation damage on the ring's surface.
So this Father's Day, give the gift that will stand the test of time, just like the love your father has for his family.
