Let me start by saying the ring is gorgeous. I wear it as a thumb ring and kept looking at my hand for days because it was so pretty. I knew it was gold filled so would not keep its bright gold but didn’t think it would fade to a dull discolored gold within a few weeks. I used gold jewelry polish to see if that helped but it didn’t work. Again, gorgeous shape and fit, but if you are looking for something to wear daily, not the right fit!
