This ring is a high quality, high maintenance jewelry piece. Black plated rings are actually very dark gunmetal in color. This black coating is black rhodium plating over alloy metal. All rings that are black rhodium plated will show some wear in certain areas after a few months to few years of wearing. This is true for all black rings regardless of what it's made of or how much it costs, this process is inevitable. This then makes your ring even more unique. As this process happens the metal under the black plating will start to show through making your ring look exquisite and vintage. It is important that you are aware of this prior to purchase. If you do not want the vintage look then you may opt to have the ring re-plated at least once a year in order to maintain the black look you see now. The best way to keep your ring looking it's best is simply keep it dry and away from chemicals. Clean when needed with mildly sudsy water, do not scrub, brush or use anything abrasive for this can scratch the finish. Rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth. Polish gently with a jewelry polishing cloth.
