Benefits of tungsten jewelry
Tungsten carbide is becoming an increasingly popular metal to fashion jewelry out of, especially for men. It's slightly darker hue makes it appear a bit more masculine than bright silver, but it still gives off that amazing glint, if it is looked after.
Tungsten is an incredibly strong material. It is almost as strong as titanium, and therefore going to last a lot longer than rings made out of silver or gold. Often you might find that rings can bend or warp due to constant use, or worse yet, they might break. Tungsten is so tough that it will retain its’ shape, and is not liable to snap. The ring band is thick enough that it will not break, but still remains sleek and subtle on a man’s hand. Because of its’ strength, tungsten is less likely to scratch, allowing it to stay looking brand new, years into wearing it.
Tungsten also will not dull over time, unlike gold or silver. If you look after your ring, you will not need to constantly polish it as time goes on, the jewelry will retain its' original shine.
Because of its’ long lasting shine and strength, this tungsten carbide ring makes a great wedding ring for men. There is no ring that you would ever wear more, or place as much value on, as a wedding ring. This beautiful ring allows you to hold onto the sentiment for even longer, so that you never need to repair or replace a broken ring in years to come.
Abalone is a stunning natural material, that comes from the shells of different types of sea snails. Each piece is different and unique, and gives off a strong ocean vibe, with its deep blue and turquoise colors, but also greens, pinks, and purples. This allows the ring to stand out a little bit, but it is still subtle enough to be worn every day, perfect for men who want to add a little color to their lives.
Blue rings are uncommon for men, so this is the perfect gift for someone who loves to stand out, and really make a statement with their choice of accessories. Because of the amazing swirl of multiple shades, this can match almost any outfit.
The meaning of abalone

One of the most popular meanings associated with abalone is peace and compassion. It can help the wearer to remember to embody these traits, and help them to become a gentler person. Alternatively, it can also be used to remind someone of the compassion and love that they feel for the person who gave them the gift, a symbol of their ties. This is what makes abalone such a great material for wedding rings, even though it may not be so common. It embodies the foundations of a long-lasting, loving marriage.
Symbolism in New Zealand indigenous communities
Abalone is very commonly found off the coast of New Zealand, as well as other places. The New Zealand indigenous population, the Maori, have spent centuries using this shell to create jewelry. Abalone, or paua as they call it, is believed to represent the beauty of life. Each abalone shell is completely unique, just like the life of each individual. It is seen as a reminder of one's' own self-worth, and that each person has their own place in this world, because they are one of a kind.
In Maori culture, it is believed that if you gift someone jewelry made from abalone, it will bring the wearer good luck and prosperity. It is believed that abalone has spiritual ties to the body and the heart, and by wearing it, it will bring peace from any illnesses.
Three band design
The design of this ring incorporates three separate bands of abalone, all channel set into the tungsten carbide band. While there are numerous symbolic meanings of three bands or stones in rings, one of the most common is yesterday, today, tomorrow, or in other words: past, present, future. This is a beautiful sentiment, and can be used to remind the wearer that love is a journey, that has a past, and will stretch across today and long into the future. These kinds of sentimental rings are perfect for wedding rings, or anniversary gifts.
This ring may also be a symbol of life for the wearer, that he is on his own life's journey, and that no matter what his past is, or even his present, he will always have his future, to mold and to look forward to.
