This ring is beautiful, the pictures don't even come close... it's so shiny that it picks up colors from the surroundings and glimmers like a jewel. Have had it on my hand for a few weeks now and keep looking ffor a dull spot or scratch but can't find even a hint of one... thanks to the super-hard material it is made from. If I ever buy another band-style ring it has to be made from Tungsten-carbide. Note that I have seen this exact same ring elsewhere for over a hundred $$ up to about $200. Nowhere else had the size selection and price here though.
