    I would to know everyone thoughts on this material specifically for a ring. Especially how it hold up after sometime.

    It is a pretty material, but I don't think it's a good idea for a ring as the gold plating will rub off over time, same as with the gold plated brass materials. It's also tricky to get ring sizing right with steel because the shrinkage is unpredictable.

    Works great for pendants with not a lot of fine detail, though.
