My boyfriend is allergic to EVERYTHING! All of the jewlery we had tried before this ring broke his skin out in a rash. He really wanted a piece of jewlery so I ordered this ring for his birthday. I followed other reviewers and ordered the ring a 1/2 smaller than we thought he would need. It fits PERFECTLY. He loved this gift (even more than the satalite radio!). This ring looks sharp and he has recieved many compliments. FYI: we saw this same ring in our local jewlery store and it was selling for $835!!!! That mark up is totally uncalled for! Thanx Overstock!!!
