In an age where bigger is well... bigger... my fiance and I were having a tough time to find a ring in my size (11.5) that wasn't 8mm+ wide. Reason being, I have fat but short fingers so those finger sleeves just looked silly on my fingers. I happened to stumble upon this ring by accident and I really liked the look of it and it was 7mm. While it's perhaps still a bit wide, it doesn't wear as big as it measures. The finishing on this ring does not match the price and in my opinion looks like it cost more. The diamond facets catch light well and the brushed/polished combo look very nice together . The diamonds set just below the brushed sides which should provide them some protection. Nice buy at this price for a masculine/modern yet classy ring.
