I purchased this ring for my fiance's wedding band after looking at several jewelry stores and not finding what we were looking for. I felt a little guilty about the price since I had my heart set on getting him a white gold band, but it met all of our style criteria and the fMr wanted stainless. After seeing the ring in person, I couldn't be happier - I wouldn't have questioned it if someone told me it was a $700+ ring. The picture here doesn't do it justice. The finish is a really subtle satin texture, not as brushed as it looks in the pic, and the weight is substantial. I've heard that stainless steel looks very similar to platinum, and this ring could definitely fool people. Fiance loves it and says the comfort fit really makes a big difference. In our opinion, this ring is nicer/better style than the $600-1,000 rings we looked at in the jewelry stores.
