Then I wore it nonstop for a week or two.
My thoughts: It is extraordinarily comfortable for a thick band and an incomparably rich color of yellow gold. While 14K gold equates to 58% pure gold and 18K = 75%, 22K is a whopping 92% pure! I am so very happy with this ring.
The matte satin finish really brings out the intensity of color in the 22K; the ridge is burnished bright for contrast. The inside of the ring is nicely rounded for comfort, and it is polished mirror bright.

---- PRICING ----
This ring listing is priced for a single ring in size 9 (e.g., a man's ring-finger size) in 22K gold to give you an idea of price. I do price these individually for your specific finger size so just send me a convo with your size and I'll give you the exact price. I can make this in other metals: 14K or 18K white, yellow, or rose gold, 22K yellow gold, palladium (Pd950), or platinum (Pt950). Let me know if you need price quotes in any of the other metal options as well.
* Width of band: 4mm
* Thickness of band: 2.35
* Finger size: Made custom to fit
** ABOUT 22K GOLD -- Please note that 22K is gold at it's purest yet still feasible as jewelry material; it is a softer alloy than 14K or 18K. It does ding up and scratch more readily. However, this softness gives it a very antique look very quickly. I gave the ring above a satin/matte finish with a bright burnished ridge; I photographed it after wearing it nonstop for a few days (so you can see the dings and lived-in look). This ring is more about the warmth and richness and intensity of color--the satisfaction of wearing a piece of gold that is so very close to pure.
