- In Emergency Situations, Can I Remove My Tungsten Ring?
Using vice grip-pliers, clamp the ring and squeeze hard. Remove the pliers, then turn the ring by 1 quarter. Tighten the pliers on the ring again and push down hard once more. Continue this until a crack is heard. At that point the material should begin to break away quite easily. Since each Tungsten ring is milled from a single piece and thus cannot be resized, each ring must be ordered to the correct finger size. For assistance with this, please see our helpful sizing guide.

- What Is The MOHS SCALE And What Does It Have To Do With These Rings?
The Mohs Scale of mineral hardness is a method of measuring the strength of the ring. The higher the number on the Mohs Scale, the stronger the ring, making it less likely to bend or scratch - whereas a metal such as gold which is a number 3 on the Mohs Scale can bend or scratch more easily. Check the table below for a list of common metals used in jewellery production with their corresponding Mohs scale numbers:
|Gold||2.5 – 3|
|Silver||2.5 – 3|
|Platinum||4 – 4.5|
