I've had this ring for a little over 3 years now and have worn it nearly every day since I bought it. I've never owned a piece of jewelry that's more "me" than this ring. I get a lot of compliments on it, and tons of people ask to look at it because they find it very intriguing. I have a daughter who, when she was 4 or 5, asked to see it and ended up misshaping one of the rings because she was convinced she could separate the rings by hand. Fortunately, the metal is soft enough that I was able to shape the ring back to it's normal shape, and you'd never know it was damaged. Overall, this is a great ring, very simple, but also quite lovely.
