This ring is a fantastic value--the carbon fiber is set in the band well, and the ring is smooth to the touch, inside and out. It's very shiny, well crafted, and is a steal for the price! I got it for my brother (age 22) for a Christmas gift and he's quite enamored of it. I haven't noticed any flaws or negatives, and neither has my brother. Shipped promptly and arrived in perfect condition.
