I bought this ring as a “temporary” replacement for my 18k white gold ring that I lost at of all places a wedding. Ever since having received it, I stopped looking for my replacement gold band! The overall quality of the ring has been superb! I manage a metal supply company and the ring has been exposed to a number of different oils, dirt, grime, and scratches. It still looks like it was just delivered! Also the shear number of people who have noticed it and complemented on it have been astonishing. Without question I would recommend this ring!
