I have worn this ring for 1 week. When I got it, the ring was shiny and no scratches. After 7-8 days of being worn, it has scratches all over it. I don't have a job that requires manual labor or anything harsh that would harm the ring. All the scratches are from just one week of normal wear and tear. I don't recommend this ring to anybody who wants it to be shiny and scratch free, unless you do nothing with your hands.
