I think that depends on the karat of the gold. I believe the higher the karat, the softer the gold (because it is more pure) and the more bendable it is.

I have several yellow gold rings in 10k, 14 k, and 18 k and have never had any issues with them losing their shape 🙂

I’ve never had a problem with my gold rings bending and usually wear 18 or 22k which is a lot softer.

I had a gold ring in middle school and it bend, the gold was very thin on the bottom, thinner than yours. I must have tried to fix it myself because I remember having to get it fixed. They kinda hammered it on a ring sizer, I think.

But you shouldn’t worry, if it does bend, it will do so in a way that conforms to your finger. That’s happened to a silver ring of mine that now only fits on my right middle finer.

The lower the karat, the harder the gold. 14k and 10K are much harder than 18k and 24k so you should be fine. 🙂

As long as its not gold plated, it should hold up fine!

I had one of those rings with name on it that was so popular back in the day and it was 24kt gold.  It did bend but to the shape of my finger.  So overtime, if it does bend it might just fit better.
