TANTALUM

A ring that never fails

Tantalum got its name from Tantalus, a villain in Greek mythology. Zeus made Tantalus stand in a pool of water below a fruit tree, but made him unable to drink from the pool or eat from the tree. His punishment was to forever be kept from what he needed most, despite it being right in front of him.
