i got this ring for my husband. we got it in the mail and we were soooo happy with it. it looks even better in person than it does in the picture. absolutely stunning. and for the price we thought it was perfect. however, that soon changed. after about a month or so the entire design faded away and so did the darkness. it fadded to a lighter gray. the ring still looks nice i guess, but not the same as what we got in the mail. plus to top it off, turns out my husband is allergic to it. i had no idea but alot of men actually tend to be allergic to tungsten because it has cobalt in it. who knew. so now he gets a rash when he wears it. It is nice that it doesnt scratch as he works with metal all day, but believe me, this ring will not hold its "laser design"
