My husband is not a flashy person so we needed a ring that he could wear comfortabley and not destory. He is a farmer and is usually coverd in dirt and grease. My only regret is that I did not buy this ring from Overstock when I got married. I bought the SAME ring from my jeweler when we got married for 4x's the price. This is actually a replacement for the lost wedding band. And I am buying two. One to work in and one to keep at home. At this price I can buy him one for each day!
