    That right there is the way to sell these rings....garage sale/fleamarket !! Probably get the best money for them that way.....lots of people do like them !! Nice work Claire and a good idea.

    I give the ones I find to a friend of mine who owns a pawn shop. He occasionally sells one but doesn’t get much for them.

    Man i find way to many of these rings, but i still enjoy the finds really. Many of the TC's i've found are actually very pretty, with bright colors and styles, and they last forever and also cannot get them cut off your fingers if you really had to. That being said, jewelry stores and pawn shops don't want to even buy them from you, so i have a drawer full of them. The prices can be somewhat high on these rings as well, oh well. HH

    I do a lot of recovery call all summer.

    If someone has a gold ring and they are under 30 years old, its a hand me down from grandpa. People under 30 are not paying for gold. They will spend $1000.00 on a phone and not think anything about it.

    They also have no clue on how valuable anything is.

    A customer of mine got married recently. I asked what you get for a ring? He got 2 tungsten rings off the web for $80.00. He has a spare if he looses his and the wife does not know about the spare.

    Tungsten Carbide, becoming all-too routine. Got another Triton yesterday, this one in black.

    If this trend continues the price of gold is going to plummet.....
    But I did just hear this, 98% of those uneffected by covid wear either gold, sterling or platinum. 99.3 % of those effected by covid wear Tungsten. Please feel free to share everywhere....

    Now I get the whole wear factor, tungsten carbide being extremely hard and durable, but at the same time I can still buy a 10K gold band, something with value, for pretty much the same money that folks are spending on these TC rings with zero precious metal value and little if any resale value. Who can explain this too me? I'm miffed. What am I missing?
    Agreed.

    I scratch my head everyday at peoples decisions... dont know why someone would spend more than 10 dollars retail on those.

    As the ole saying goes - "a fool and their money soon part ways".
