I love the detail of this ring, even on close inspection it holds up. Unlike so many pieces of jewellery, THIS ring shows the beautiful, elegant, intelligent bird! It has not been turned into something **** - a mistake made by far too many designers! While it was a little hard to adjust at first - it IS stainless steel; it is comfortable when you do get it right. I actually forgot to take it off at least twice, and slept with it still on my hand! I love Ravens, and have finally found a beautiful ring that relects what I see; thank-you!
