I haven't taken this ring off or even cleaned it in 2.5 years and it looks the same as the day I got it! I'm amazed, I'm super ******* it... I've worked as an artist or server and it spends everyday in water, covered in clay, or splattered with ???? I use all sorts of art supply's from paint to hardcore adhesives and so far so good... not much has even temporarily stuck, muchless caused damage. I almost wish more did as it might stop me from banging it on metal things for fun (so far banging on metal also has no effect). I was certain the inlay wouldn't hold up as a friend paid 250$ for a similar style ring elsewhere and his lasted 6mo at best...2.5 years later both mine & my spouses Koa inlay looks great. Besides that... I don't ever take mine off and find it to be very comfortable. It's super shiny & people often comment on it (note, I don't clean it). I just ordered a new one as mine was a bit tight and I now need a larger size. They seem pretty true to size but I'd advise to error on the larger size if yr not sure. Overall I highly recommend this based on quality but the service was also excellent... I do everything thing last minute and there was some panic about getting the first ones on time but they made it happen & all was good. I'm pretty hard to please but I've been so happy I took time to write this mushy review and now buying a 3rd ring.
