I've had this ring for a year. I have loved it. It looks real, stayed nice and shiny, and just looked very pretty for the longest time. I *never* took it off. I washed my hands, did dishes, slept with it on. Seriously always kept it on. I am now back on the site because 12 months later, it finally tarnished (it was accidently left it a little puddle of contact solution after I put lotion on my hands and took the rings off), and I can't polish it back to looking real and shiny like it did. For the price, it has been TOTALLY worth it. I will buy a second set, and hope it lasts this long again. For a cheap price, it really outdid my expectations, even with my "abuse" of it.
