eBay is your best bet dude. I bought a few of them from there, you just need to know your ring size though - I can help you out there if u need...

You should look into tungsten spinning rings as well - They are pretty cool because they have a spinning center piece inside.

I was looking for one myself, before I decided to go another route, I found a lot on this site;
http://www.etsy.com/search?q=carbon%...ery&ship_to=CA

My concern with the most CF rings was that the resin would yellow and crack over time.
I like the spun CF rings as it looks less overtly like carbon fiber but I had concern of unraveling or catching fibers on sharp/rough objects.

In the end I went with a ring that was inlayed with Meteorite a custom version of these;

Tungsten will crack over time as well... Titanium would be a more durable option.

When I was looking at wedding bands People's Jewelry had one.
Must admit, it didn't look that impressive

I love my Tungsten ring... never gets scratched or marred... always looks bling. If it cracks, no biggie... $60 and I get a new one.
