My wife had originally purchased a package of 3 silicone rings through Amazon after I informed her that I would wear a ring as an engaged individual if she purchased the ring(s). After a month or so, the rings would rip and tear from use. Between the hospital and working on the yard, the rings would be destroyed. After I saw an ad for these rings, I put them on my wish list for the now...wife. She purchased this ring within a few weeks of it being on our joint wish list, and I will never go back. It is not simply about the warranty. This ring is constantly removed and placed back on from my time in the operating room, and manages to hold up to all the wear and tear I give it. Since transitioning to a metal band, once she had the money, this ring has become my gym and outside work ring. It holds up against any metal object I place in front of it without fail. I would recommend this ring to all of my fellow submariners, as a tough ring is what is needed in the military.
