I really like this ring, the way the notes stand out in color, what it represents, and how flat it lays on my finger. I do not like a ring that sticks out a lot. However, a few small issues- one, the ring is fairly thin in width. There is nothing wrong with that, really, but personally I do not have delicate hands and so it looked a bit...underwhelming, I guess, on it's own. I placed a very thin, plain silver band underneath to give it the illusion of more thickness and I prefer that look. Two, the tops of the notes, where they come up over the top of the ring, are rather sharp. I initially wore the ring with the notes 'facing' me (that is, with the tops or points pointing toward my fingernails) but I ending up unexpectedly catching my nose and face on it (like when brushing my hair) more than once and it hurt! I have since turned the ring 'upside-down' and this seems to have helped. Neither of these issues would stop me from buying or recommending this ring, since they were so easily remedied, but that has been my experience.
Ordered as a birthday present for my music teacher sister. It arrived quickly, though not quite as quickly as I could have hoped. It came in in a plastic bag, stapled shut, inside a fabric bag, very pretty. The ring seemed like good quality and definitely got the right reaction!
