I purchased this ring for my fiance who stated if he had to buy me a ring, I had to buy him one. He picked it out as a "fun" ring before he'll wear the more traditional wedding band. I do recommend going half a size smaller than normal, which apparently is common with "comfort fit." He is normally a 9.5 but we ordered a 9 and it is perfect. It's somewhat heavy, but he likes the weight and says it doesn't pinch or get in his way. He really likes it and makes a point to show it off to friends and family. It is very shiny and smooth and looks just like the picture. Absolutely no complaints. Definitely recommended.
