I bought this ring because I love the Lapis stone, however after just one single wear, the layer of plated gold came totally off. It just literally peeled off, just like a thin paper would, and the top of the ring fell off with the stone. The workmanship is absolutely disappointing to say the least. Is there such a thing as quality control?! If there was a negative star, I would rate it as such, which is why I'm giving this ring a one star, although it does not deserve it. I don't think that the designer would want to associate her name to such poor quality of workmanship.
This ring has both a boldness and a delicacy that make it unusual. The color is very unique and makes it a perfect look for dressing up your everyday wardrobe. Purchased this as a present.
