Emergency Removal of Rings

We are hearing more reports recently about how rings such as tungsten carbide, or titanium are dangerous to wear as you may lose a finger in an emergency as hospitals are unable to remove them.

This information is both misleading, and totally inaccurate, and is usually voiced by the traditional jewellery shops who rely on selling expensive gold, or platinum wedding rings, and realise that the recent popularity of alternative materials such as titanium, tungsten carbide, zirconia ceramic and cobalt chrome are in competition with them.

In many ways, some of these new material wedding rings are easier to remove in an emergency, and can be carried out in your own home without the need of going to the fire station, hospital or a jewellers. This in its self makes the removal of rings in an emergency even quicker, and gives you full control of the situation.

It is however true that hospitals do have difficulty cutting some of the materials off due to their extreme strength, however each of the rings does have an easy way to remove in an emergency.
