I absolutely adore this ring. Bought it for myself as a 21st birthday present and almost 4 years later, I have yet to go a day without wearing it. It?s held up beautifully, considering I?m a server who is always washing my hands and knocking into things. Sometimes I even shower with it (horrible I know) and it still looks great! True statement peice that I feel naked without wearing. I also get compliments on it all the time.
