I purchased this for myself 5 years ago. I love the unique look and it has proven to be very durable. The only complaint I have...and the only real problem with this ring is the 4 screws that adorn the front face. They are real screws and as such they can loosen and eventually fall out. I lost the first one within the first week. I've since lost a second one. I still love the ring...but beware that this will happen...just a matter of time.
