This ring came and was more beautiful than the picture. After four months the black is almost gone and even thought his is one of the strongest metals, it DOES scratch EASILY! I bought this for my husband for Christmas and I was so disappointed when he showed me that the black was wearing off. I read other's reviews be fore I bought this. If your going to review a product, please use the product for a while before you write about it. Just because it was beautiful out of the box, doesn't mean it's going to stay that way. I wish I had known better.
