This is a very nice looking ring. Since is is gold-over..I rated it a "4" only because I don't know "how" it would "wear" in the long run. IF I was to wear it just on special occasions and keep it nicely packed in velvet, I think it would last a good long time. Other than this, I am not an expert on overlaying and so I don't know the long term here. It is a pretty ring...Band, for a larger hand.
