I just wanted to show how mine has been affected by wear: I wore it daily for 6 months before this happened, and stopped wearing it shortly after.
Only a very very slight discoloration of the metal that doesn't come through in photos, but the cloisonne has bubbled up and become quite dull, porous, and rough!
"After an inferior man has been taught a doctrine of superiority he will remain as inferior as he was before his lesson. He will merely assume himself to be superior, and attempt to employ his recently learned tactics against his own kind, whom he will then consider his inferiors. With each inferior man enjoying what he considers his unique role, the entire bunch will be reduced to a pack of strutting, foppish, self-centered monkeys gamboling about on an island of ignorance. There they will play their games under the supervision of their keeper, who was and will always be a superior man."
