Of course you will be looking for a ring that has the look you love, but it is also a good idea to consider how you’ll be wearing your ring.Sterling Silver is a better choice for a more active lifestyle. A Cubic Zirconia set lower rather than extending out of the ring is better protected, as is one in a bezel setting. Those planning to take off their ring before tackling tough jobs can feel more secure wearing delicate styles.
