This is one of those scenarios where the problem is so obvious that
you overlook it ! If a tungsten carbide or titanium ring has to be
cut off in a hurry, due to swelling and restriction of circulation or
due to injuries to the end on the finger, the use of conventional
means ( using a steel saw ) is not going to solve the problem. Maybe
the titanium ring can be cut, but then how do you bend the cut ring
away from the finger ? I have always used a couple of pairs of needle
nosed pliers and, even then, a gold ring, especially a white gold
ring, requires a great deal of strength to bend away from the finger.
In the case of tungsten carbide I would suggest that their sale be
prohibited......the only thing that is going to get it off is a
diamond saw !
