Unfortunately this ring does not hold up very well. I have only owned it for 2 weeks and the "18k plating" is already worn off from very basic wear. It is now a silver ring. This ring is definitely a different quality and color from some of the other pieces. I ordered the Nova ring as well and that plating is wearing off slower and is very different/richer shade of gold. I was hoping that the golds would match across the brand/line. The ring is sturdy and cute for layering but I will not spend $50 for rings that are poorly crafted.
