I purchased this key ring only two weeks ago (because I love all things "Kate Spade") and it is already scratched to death. I've tried cleaning it but the scratches have remained. I don't want to polish it too much because it is only silver plated. It was very beautiful right out of the package, but sadly, with only normal usage (in and out of my purse) it now looks old and cheap. I'm very disappointed in this item and would not recommend it to anyone who wants to actually use it as a keychain. However, if you just want to hang it from a hook or something and just look at it...go for it.
