It's been 2,5 years since I got this ring in the mail in gold plated brass (see the picture on June 19th 2014 below). I've been wearing it every day almost 24/7 ever since and since I just happened to cross by this page, I thought I'd leave you a comment on its current condition.
said, the lowest two ribs (the ones that don't go in a full circle) can bend pretty easily. Over time, this caused them to break off due to metal fatigue. Yet even with three rows of ribs left, the ring still looks great.
The ribs above those are actually still in good condition. Except for the top row, which has a couple of bends and other irregularities, due to some heavy hits it has endured over the years, combined with wearing another ring right next to it (which has the same kind of bends).
That said, I'm still very much in love with this ring and will keep wearing it until I'm no longer able to. Should you ever make a second version of this ring, then you now have my feedback ;) Thank you for this design and good luck in your further endeavours!
