Initially, we liked this ring, but agree with another reviewer that the pattern is cracked and dry looking, even brand new. It was disappointing, but we decided to live with it. The pattern started coming off within the first 6 months, with no rough wear. We contacted the company for a refund because this was really the only pattern my husband liked. They will only refund in the first 30 days. The "No bull" warranty means they will credit you for a new ring, but if you decide their product is not for you, you have to figure it out within the first 30 days, or you're stuck. That would be fine if it was a great product and we just changed our minds. This is NOT a great product. Any of the patterned rings have the pattern applied to the outside and it eventually chips or wears off, but not within the refund period. This was the representative's comment, "Regarding your ring, we use premium materials so we can make premium products! That being said, we have two primary materials our rings & watch bands are made from: 100% medical grade silicone & a synthetic elastomer blend. Your product is made with the synthetic elastomer blend. This is so we can provide those cool patterns!" These rings are going to continue needing replacement, which I could maybe live with, but you have to pay for shipping each time.
Groove needs to find a way to incorporate the pattern through the material, or stop selling these rings.
