Tungsten carbide is the most scratch resistant metal known to man and has the highest melting point of all metals at an astounding 6,191.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Tungsten is also hypoallergenic; people with allergies to gold or nickel can wear tungsten jewelry without worry of a reaction.
Tungsten keeps its finish forever and shines beautifully in the light. The Blue Abalone inlay reflects a rainbow of colors and appears almost 3-D like as it surrounds the ring completely. Our Thalia name and logo are laser engraved on the inside of the ring.
We offer this ring in two colors: Chrome which is essentially the raw tungsten carbide color and a 24K Gold Plated version.
Does not include black ring gift box with foam and velvet insert shown. But these are available seperately for $2.99

When sunlight or any direct lighting source hits this Blue Abalone ring, it really comes to life.
Without any direct light this Blue Abalone takes on a relaxed, muted appearance.
Sometimes video is the only way to see the true magic of this shell. Here it is in all of its glory.
Bought these for me and the wife so we could have matching bands. We both really like them a lot. Mine especially catches the light and shimmers and shines nicely. I don't wear it all the time though because I'm not too sure on the abalone shells strength. I still wear my original 18 year old titanium band to work everyday but this band is now my weekend band.
I wear both of the rings together on my left middle finger. Also wearing another previously purchased one on my index finger on my left hand. Absolutely love the look!
I've worn this Thalia ring for a bit over two years, using it in place of my original wedding ring. It is very attractive, and has received many positive comments. Since I wear it all the time, the ring is exposed to any activity or project I do -- from playing guitar at gigs to gardening to home repair like putting in a floor or repairing the roof. It has stayed beautiful with no wear that I can detect. This past Winter while we were in Ecuador, and visiting with the top guitar maker in the country, he admired the ring, tried it on, and wished he had one. I've since purchased one for him that I'll present when we return there this Winter. I'm very pleased with this purchase, as I have been with other Thalia products.
Not much to add! No defects, fits my ring finger, and has beautiful blue shine under lighting.
