positive--nice wife band. Easily adjustable to fit different fingers. negative and a big negative--dull, almost colorless shells. No hint Of usual blues, greens, pinks associated with abalone shells. Looks nothing like photo. One is dark and colorless and one other is plain white. The third which is the smallest (and they all are tiny) has a little color, but really very little.
I'm so excited about my ring. I can't believe the little money I paid for it. I have found everything I order from the artisans I'm never disappointed !!! Within a hour of wearing it. 5 people wanted to know where I bought it. Of course I told them. I am going to purchase more but different rings. I still can't believe the quality and the price. It is a must have.
