While I could definitely wear this ring on my hand because it fits well, has good weight, and is well-made, I chose to wear it on a necklace which I only take off for showers and gym. The ring is heavier than expected, which is great. I like feeling it's weight because it's so incredibly important to me. I trusted Ashley with a very special task and she delivered in the best way possible. I'm definitely ordering more items in the future.
