We bought two of these rings for our 30th anniversary. We did the research to find the most economical & ware resistant ring to last us another 30 years, we hope. We chose titanium. Titanium is supposed to be difficult to even be engrave by a jeweler! I am a housewife & my hubs is a desk jockey so we are very kind to jewlery. I scratched two very deep scratches into my ring within the first two weeks & the hubs had many fine scratches! We returned them for full refund; well full minus the $5.98 return shipping. Besides the scratching, the rings themselves were not as attractive in person, very dark metal with no sparkle or geam & very little detail showed. The middle brushed area was pretty but that is the area that scratched the worst. Not even a good value for ANY price, very disappointing.
