The ring is beautiful. My husband lost his matching wedding band of 40+ years and was devistated. We thought of having another made to match mine but upon seeing this ring decided that he liked it as much. We received it quickly and are very pleased with appearance and craftsmanship. It looks like it has gem stones in it because of the way the light catches the bevels. Beautiful and rugged. Do order the ring a half size smaller than a jewelers ring sizing. We followed this suggestion and it fits perfect. He reports it is as comfortable as his lost band - remember he had worn that one for 40+ years so had become quite accustomed to the feel. I don't think you will be disappointed with this ring, much more elegant in real life than the picture.
