We sometimes hear of tungsten rings as snapping in half. So, what these hospitals and clinics have in place is a tool that is almost like a vice grip and with one twist a certain way, the tungsten ring will snap off.
So have no fear. Your finger will not be a gonner if something happens that you need it removed in an emergency - in fact, the tungsten ring might be the one that saves your finger!
