Our rings are very durable for normal everyday wear, and your ring should last a lifetime with reasonable care!
Please remember that this is a handmade artisan ring with a wood or alternative inlay, and our design was developed to protect this inlay to the best of our ability on our end, but it is up to you as to how long it will last, with your consideration to the reasonable care!
To prolong the life of your ring, you must avoid use of harsh chemicals, solvents, fingernail polish remover, abrasive cleansers, heavy lifting, daily tool usage or contact, very hot & cold temperature changes, complete and prolonged submersion in water or other soapy liquids, shampoo, conditioners, surgical soaps, etc. that will eventually damage the finish.
My finish is completely water-proof, but if you take a shower wearing it in very hot water, the hot water will cause the band material and the sealed finish inlay area to expand and contract at different rates that may cause a separation between the edges of the materials allowing water to get into the inlay materials and will damage the ring from the inside out. Example- I had a customer wearing his ring in a hot tub in the winter, and then took it off and left it out overnight in the below freezing temperatures, and then when he put it back on he noticed a cloudy appearance to his ring? This was from the extreme temperature changes and causing the finish to separate from the band as I mentioned! So please simply take it off to avoid these kind of problems and to prolong the life of your ring!
