I really love this ring...would it pass for real gold? Not if you put it up against real gold but it's close enough. It is great for your ring finger. It would really work on any finger...even your thumb. I wanted something a lil bigger but not too flashy so I could wear it with anything. This fit the bill perfectly. I wear it all the time and get compliments every time I do. I got my regular size 8 and it fit fine.
