BC Marketplace Seller Profile 831-338-8354 Email This SellerEmail This Seller See Seller StoreSee Seller Store  See all products from BC Marketplace See all products from BC Marketplace

I specialize in great prices, Tungsten Carbide jewelry, stirling engines, meteorites, and unique scale objects for photography.
I have personal friends who own a jewelry manufacturing facility and can get whatever I want made at incredible prices. If you ever have a custom design you want made (in Tungsten Carbide, Titanium, or Cobalt Chrome) please let me know and I can most likely get it created for you, (usually at price of under $100).

All pictures of my products are taken by me personally and only photo processed to give a white background.

for sizing here is a quote from a few customers about what worked for sizing questions.
" Order 1/2 size smaller than what you wear on a flat band ring."
"Ok, so I tried this website: http://findmyringsize.com/ and it seems like my wedding ring is 8.5 - 9. (this one is what he used he does not recommended the 2 below) I had previously used http://www.zales.com/home/ringsizechart.jsp and a second chart that I can't remember where I got from, that both said my wedding ring was a 10 and yours was an 10 (he ordered a size 10 based upon the above sites and it was wrong.). I printed Zales chart by following the instructions of not scaling the print, so maybe their chart is flawed or doesn't translate well to a printed copy." He recommended the first site and not use the other sites. Jewelry stores have also given my customers a different size for each jewelry store they do to. I do have a very simple, easy, and inexpensive exchange policy.

Wonder why we have a jewelry line called "Almost Forever Jewelry"? As a science educator I teach my students that nothing can last forever. The Tungsten Carbide jewelry we sell should almost last forever.
At BC Marketplace we specialize in Alternative Metal Jewelry, as we feel that for the majority of folks out there they do not wear jewelry because they are afraid of scratching or hurting it. With our jewelry you can rest assured that it should hold up under daily wear with minimal to no wear.

FYI all my Tungsten Carbide rings use nickel (not cobalt as was done 10+ years ago) as the binder (everyone uses nickel now as its much better) but since no jeweler has a certified material composition list of each ring I do not advertise it as such.

My black plating is Titanium aluminum nitride. Bonded to the Tungsten Carbide by a PVD process. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanium_aluminium_nitride
As this is a plating it is not as strong as TiALN by itself it is not permantly (as with all plating processes) bonded to the Tungsten Carbide but it is much much more durable (many many times) than Enamel Paint. I will not (if possible) ever use Enamel paint (unless as an inlay under a clear protective coating) on any of my products.


If the clear enamel on any of your rings gets scratched I discovered that if you use car polish it will remove scratches. (Call for advice if needed)

Rating + 5 Tungsten Carbide Ring

I ordered the " Tungsten Carbide Ring With Seamless Black Ceramic Inlay " and ordered a size 11, as the ring I wear now was that size. Turns out it was a half size too big, so I emailed Rex, and got a response soon after. I shipped the ring to him and should expect the exchanged ring in a few days. The ring I did initially receive was a beautiful piece of craftsmanship, and I look forward to the replacement.

Rating + 5 Beautiful Ring. Heavy.

Not as detailed as my other ring, but it is still nice to look at.

If you buy this be aware the Tungsten Carbide is no joke. I have a 12 Stainless Steel Ring and it feels 3 times lighter than this Tungsten Carbide ring.

Rating + 1 Lost money and item

The item shipped quickly once I originally order, but when I returned the item for an exchange...

Seller says they will exchange an item if there is an issue with an order, but does not. In my case, the ring I bought was too big. I returned the item back to the seller, and got nothing in return.

Now I am dealing with Newegg and a Paypal dispute, in hopes to at least get a refund.
Seller Response:The ring never arrived at my house.
I will be happy to replace it with whatever size you need if you still want the ring, otherwise I will refund the money,

Thanks

Rating + 5 Stellar quality, service and price!

I can't speak highly enough about this seller. If you have any interest whatsoever in any items carried by BC Marketplace, you would be a fool to pass them up. There was a very minor hiccup with shipping initially, and the seller resolved it immediately and maintained excellent contact with me even during this busy season. I wont waste anyone's time with the details, but I have never before received this type of service when dealing with online transactions.
As far as my purchase goes, frankly I cant understand how a profit can be made by selling such high quality items at such low prices.

The bottom line? I've purchased many items through Newegg over the past few years, and this seller has officially earned my first review, ever.

If I could pay Newegg to add a 6th egg rating, I would.

    Please note that most online websites and jewelry stores when they do ring sizing assume that you have a flat non-comfort fit band. The paper printouts that you can find online often give wrong numbers.

    Sizing note: Comfort fit rings have a slightly curved bottom. Therefore, size of these ring may 'feel' slightly larger compared to the same size in a typical flat bottom ring. Customers might consider getting a 1/2 size smaller ring size if size choice is based on the fit of a flat bottom ring size.
