i've been wearing this ring for over a year. i even called this my favorite ring. i think better name would be "the ring that never sintered properly". evidence that kate mckinnon is right that when you fire at lower temperatures to accommodate stones, there is an un-sintered price to be paid. granted, i was swinging my arms around like a crazy person, searching for my lost car keys and caught the "face" of the ring on the edge of the car door....maybe the whole "face" would've popped off if it had been properly sintered; i hit it pretty hard. or maybe not. just another on the list of reasons not to make rings to sell. too fragile. right along with... too soft and scratchable...and too soft and bendable.
