This ring is one of three I purchased and has survived so far. The ring is solid and not fragile, not one bit. I bought the gold ring (on 5/17/22)in size nine, and my ring finger is a size 10/11, depending on the form of the ring. I can open and close the ring a little bit and am doing good. I love the design of the ring! Also, the best thing you can do is take your ring off before washing your hands to avoid the ring's color fading away. I still have it and wear it here and there.
