I purchased this ring for my husband as a gift to replace his wedding band as an aniv. gift. He is Irish and is VERY proud of his herritage! I thought I was going to need a tissue after I gave it to him. He loved it. The celtic design is beautiful. I picked this particular band because of the material. He has had gold, platinum and silver rings. He is a chef and he has beat each of them up with scratches etc. This ring so far has taken a beating and it still looks perfect! I would strongly recommend this item!!!!
