This one is cute and simple and while I still have to get it resized so far it has not cause my finger to turn green. Plus for the price I was not expecting as much. I am hopeful about this as it seems very sturdy and like the color will not wear off (at least not in a short amount of time). The seller's service was good as it was shipped immediately and well packaged.

The description said gold plated but I think it should say gold colored. The ring seems to be made of cheap tin or aluminum as it bent in shape severely after only 2 days of wearing, turned a brass color, you can see the seam connecting the underneath of the ring, and it turns my finger bright green. Not at all what I expected for the $80 price. Very disappointing. I know I took a chance buying "vintage" but there is now way this is truly vintage, as it was so misshapen and worn down after only 2 days of wearing so there's no way it could have been worn before for long. I still love the look of it (from the top) and may consider having it cut and placed on a new band as this one will not last long. However the service of the shop was good. It was shipped immediately and well packaged.
