Let me start by saying that I absolutely love this ring. My fiancee and I bought it to function as my wedding band and I so loved it that I started wearing it before we were even married. The problem arose when I started wearing it, however. The black rhodium finish lasted about a day before it started to rub off, despite my being cautious and avoiding contact with water. A couple of days later, the bottom of the finish was nearly gone and the sides had started to disappear as well. I've gone through two rings now and neither has held up well to cautious, everyday wear. I could just be unlucky and this ring may hold up well for others, but for me it just didn't make the cut. Overall, the ring looks great and I love the look and feel. But as my title warns, beware the rhodium finish.
I ordered the ring to replace my husbands old wedding band and he loved the way this band looked. He was so excited about his new ring however, when it came time to order they didn't have his size only a size bigger so we ordered it with hopes to have no issues re-sizing it. Well that is where the issues began because of the black rhodium it has been difficult for any jeweler to touch it. We will have to have it resized and re-dipped in black rhodium which may end up costing as much as I paid for the ring..we have no problem paying for it because my husband REALLY LOVES HIS RING!! So other than the whole sizing issues..I guess because my husband loves it so much it's hard to really say anything bad! The only thing we have noticed just recently is that it is showing signs of being scratched, we can see the sterling silver shine through so idk..may need to be re-dipped in black rhodium every so often to maintain its look!
I have received compliment after compliment about this ring the diamonds sparkle with brilliance and the rhodium is nice. I do agree I do see a little tarnishing but not enough to be noticed I think if you have never had something rhodium you would be dissatisfied but for the price this is a ring you should take care of and wear with care. Where else can you find 3/4 carats for $$$ dollars so I recommend this only people who take good care of their jewelry.
