I bought this ring back in January of 2010 & now in November, it is falling apart for no reason. My husband was looking at his ring closely one day & noticed that the bottom silver ridged banding you see surrounding the tungsten was missing in a spot. Upon further inspection, the entire thin silver band was defective in multiple places & fell off the ring entirely at the gentlest touch. A few days later, he witnessed the top silver band do the exact same thing & now he is left with the tungsten band moving up & down on the black ceramic ring. He has taken great care of this ring, as it is his wedding ring, & I cannot believe that it is just falling apart like this. Not to mention, I purchased the Platinum Protection plan but since I don't have the original receipt from almost a year ago, I can't get it replaced. Talk about a waste of money.
