This is a very very cute ring, but the fact that it's leather means that it has a limited lifetime. I bought this about 2 months ago and it's starting to fray and look worn where the leather meets metal. It's also a bit misshapen now. The metal is good quality though, and overall I'd say that it's held up OK given that it's textile jewelry, but it's just a touch too expensive to be left with a tattered ring after just 2 months. I love the bow ring idea and in the future I'll probably buy an all-metal one.
