The exact same thing happened to me within the same time period. You can't scratch the f*$#er, but it's brittle as hell. I just say it adds more character and symbolizes the working through the hard times...also that I'm cheap.

Damn! Got a picture? I thought those were supposed to be indestructible! I wish I had gone slightly smaller with my ring as its pretty loose...guess I just need to drink more to gain some weigh the fingers

I have two friends who discovered that if you bounce a tungsten ring just right on the floor, they bounce really high! Then, they both broke them... One was married for a month...

This is why I got Titanium. Sure it scratches but it's not brittle like Tungsten. That and my wife (a nurse) knew of some fella who came into her hospital with a crushed ring finger and they hospital could not get his tungsten carbide ring cut off in time to save his finger which was later amputated do to the ring cutting off blood flow to the swollen finger. Only a few tools exist that can cut off a tungsten carbide ring.

And one of them is a 4 foot fall from the floor? haha - I just don't understand how it can crack like that, but can't be cut/sawed off

Just think about this: A diamond is the hardest mineral on earth...and yet it can be cracked or shattered fairly easily.

With metals I believe they call it "malleability". More malleable metals can be scratched easily but are very hard to break since they will bend before cracking.
