The ring is sleek and modest looking; which is nice, because I am not a flashy guy. The ring is also a nice width for a guy w/o sausage fingers -- my wife commented that it looks perfect on my finger. The zirconium is super light. At first I was surprised by the weight and skeptical about the quality, because I assumed that if it wasn't heavy, then it wasn't rugged enough. Now, I can definitely see the appeal in having a ring that isn't constantly noticeable on my hand, and I've already knocked it on a few hard surfaces by accident. So far, it's held up well! Lastly, I would say that I am content with the price. I am hard on rings -- and cell phones, and pocket knives, and wallets, etc. -- so if this one holds up well for a while, and suffers a catastrophic failure due to my neglect, I would probably just buy another one without cringing at the thought of the $$$ damages. To be honest, I don't really know what it costs to manufacture a mass produced zirconium ring, but $300 isn't an overwhelming amount, so I won't complain. Also, I am very impressed and pleased with the customer service of Manly Bands. Manly Bands provided a good product, speedy and accurate services, as well as fast shipping. Great job on their part.
