Tungsten Carbide is one of the most durable materials around, super scratch resistant and will keep its mirror shine until archaeologists dig it up in the year 4750. You can clean it with sandpaper, steel wool, or lava rocks, it just doesn’t matter! We think warm soapy water also works well.
Hyperbole aside, King Rings are surfaced with a variety of materials and knowing how to care for your individual ring(s) to keep them looking great is important.
There are four basic classifications of materials found on King Rings’ various designs, each has its own range of durability and resistance to wear. When caring for your ring, treat the entire piece as you would its most vulnerable parts.
These are the shiny silver colored parts. There is no chrome plating, glossy varnish, or anything else on the surface … it is polished, super durable Tungsten Carbide which keep its perfect shine forever. Wash it with warm soapy water, dry it with a cloth or paper towel, and toss it in a drawer with your Craftsman tools.
Chemical damage is possible though (think discoloration) so don’t clean it with anything harsh like bleach and maybe avoid wearing it in chemically treated hot tubs and/or swimming pools to be on the safe side. If you do, clean and dry it quickly after.
Colored surfaces (like black, blue, or red) are atomically bound pigments which hold tightly to the underlying Tungsten Carbide substrate, are very strong, and scratch resistant. It is twice as difficult to scratch our color bound surfaces as it is to scratch stainless steel. Wash with warm soapy water, dry it with a cloth or paper towel, and store it dry in a safe place.
Chemical damage is possible so don’t clean it with anything harsh like bleach or ammonia and maybe avoid wearing it in chemically treated hot tubs and/or swimming pools to be on the safe side. If you do, clean and dry it quickly after.
Don’t be mistaken, King Rings rings plated with precious metals are jewelry and should be treated with the care and attention they deserve. Gold is a soft metal and will scratch, even with seemingly soft things like paper towels. Wash with warm soapy water (after removing other rings on your hands), dry with a soft microfiber cloth, and store it dry in a safe place where it will not contact hard surfaces.
Pure gold does not tarnish but our golds (like almost all jewelry) are alloyed with other metals that can. Avoid soap with unknown ingredients, basic blue Dawn dish soap is fine, and avoid harsh chemicals. Chlorine, especially at high temperatures like in a hot tub, can permanently damage or discolor gold jewelry.
Avoiding tarnish is pretty easy but (if it happens) polishing tarnished gold is no big deal, it’s been done for centuries and Google is your friend.
Wood and patterned inlays are secured in high quality resin which is practically invisible. A resin is a special substance commonly used with jewelry that, in this case, covers and protects the wood, making it essentially waterproof and very durable. Wash with warm soapy water, dry with a soft cloth, and store it dry in a darkish place.
Sharp objects can scratch resin, extreme heat can soften it, organic solvents like Acetone will damage it, and extended exposure to sunlight may cause yellowing. These are unlikely dangers for Member Rings, of course, but are cautions widely shared for owners of similarly made finger rings.
Wash your Member Ring(s) in warm, soapy water, dry completely with a soft cloth, and store it/them dry. Swimming pools and hot tubs may not be friendly to your ring. Avoid sharp objects near your penis while wearing a King Ring, but we bet you already had that one figured out.
