The Broken Promises Coalition Comments on “Miraculous” Return of Wedding Ring to Rightful Owner
Following the return of an Idahoan´s wedding ring, Broken Promises comments on the sanctity of marriage and sentimental value of rings, imploring the bridal jewelry industry to be honest about tungsten carbide.
(PRWEB) July 31, 2012
On July 31, 2012, the Broken Promises Coalition issued a statement following the story of a true testament to the importance of wedding rings that couples take their vows with, emphasizing the coalition´s belief that the bridal jewelry industry must be held to higher standards and create wedding rings that will last a lifetime.
According to an article from The Washington Post, “When she lost her diamond wedding ring four years ago, Necia Rasmussen held out hope for several months before finally buying a replacement. But she never stopped missing the one that got away.” The article went on to state that the ring was found four years after it had gone missing by a kayaker who returned the ring to Rasmussen who referred to the return of her original wedding ring as a “miracle.”
“This particular story strikes a chord with many members of the Broken Promises Coalition. This woman´s reluctance to replace her ring serves as a testament to how irreplaceable a ring that we take our vows with can be. Wedding rings represent love and the sanctity of marriage, the idea of losing or accidentally damaging a wedding ring can be heart breaking,” says Clay Darrohn, Broken Promises representative. “Out of respect for the sanctity of marriage and the public, we are urging the bridal jewelry industry to be upfront regarding the truth about tungsten carbide. Every couple deserves the promise of a ring that lasts forever when they take their vows.”
Tungsten carbide is a brittle compound that, when fatigued from daily use, can break or shatter — a fact most brides and grooms are unaware of. Broken Promises believes that the public has a right to know this information before they even consider purchasing a tungsten ring so that they can carry with them their entire lives the same ring in which they have blessed and exchange vows with.
The Broken Promises Coalition is currently hosting a petition that will demand retailers to be upfront about the truth regarding tungsten carbide. For all consumers who believe that love, vows, promises, and the rings which represent them should last a lifetime, this petition is available through the Broken Promises Facebook page.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings. Started in April of 2012, Broken Promises is a group of concerned consumers dedicated to sharing information about the brittle nature of tungsten rings to brides–and grooms–to be.
