First I want to say how disappointed I am in this ring. It looks absolutely nothing like the picture. I would recommend it to a friend if she liked how it actually looks, though, because it is very well made.
Bad Points: THE RING IS STEEL. It is DARKER THAN MY METAL TEAKETTLE. The color looks atrocious on me! Moreover, it has a MATTE finish, so it is not shiny like the picture leads you to believe. ONLY ORDER IF YOU LIKE DARK, DULL RINGS. It also appears rounded in the picture- do not be fooled. The ring is flat with a slight bend, but not rounded. The edges are flat. That's actually not a bad thing in my case- except the fact it looks like a man's wedding band.
Good Points: Very well maid. Excellent quality for an excellent price.
Can be Good/Bad Points: The lettering is not engraved. It is well quality and looks to me like it will never rub off, but not engraved none the less. I actually think it would look really cool, if it didn't look like the metal came from my dishwasher.
Overall: I am disappointed because it is such a well made ring. It seems like all the purity rings out there are either:
a) Awesomely cool BOY BANDS
b) TACKY, cheap bands for girls that say stupid stuff and make us look like we're NUNS.
The only reason I'm not returning this ring immediately is because fortunately I have a younger sister who has a darker skin tone than mine... The ring will look great on her when she turns sixteen, but my pale, porcelain skin and light blue eyes need shine, not matte. Until then I am ringless. :(
So don't even look at this picture another minute. It looks nothing like it! Check out the photo I've posted... I wish you could see how dark it is in person... You can also see the flat edges.
I was disappointed in the rings. They were rough feeling, and the writing was too small to read. I returned them for a refund. I wound up buying some others elsewhere that were smooth, but the writing on them is very tilny also.
