I purchased this ring as a wedding band for my husband and I am 100% pleased! He loves the ring! It is shiny and sophisticated, and a perfect fit for his big manly hands. I took the previous purchasers' advice and purchased the ring 1/2 smaller and it worked out great! At first I was worried that it would be too heavy or look cheap...NOT the case at all. And as many times as he has banged it up, there are no scratches! I would recommend this ring to anyone!
