My husband and I ordered this almost one year ago. The ring is still shiney and has held up quite nicely. It looks like the real deal, and I am soooo glad that we got it. Shortly aftrer the wedding I ordered another set so that I could wear a band on either side and the engagement ring in the center of the two. The look is really pretty, and I get compliments on the ring all the time. Typically cz get cloudy with time but not this one it is as beautiful today as when I first got it. Love it.
