I was looking for something different but also a bit over the edge. Something that would make me feel this is more than a simple wedding band. The brushed gold is one of my favorites and living around a lot of trees also made me choose this particular ring. Shiny gold doesn't do anything for me so choosing a ring with some brushed gold design on it made me jump on this ring. It's perfect in size, style and definitely design. I would order this again. I highly recommend this ring and am so glad I finally found a ring that is perfect! Thanks so much Overstock for listing this for me.
