My 16 year old saw this ring and immediately wanted it. For the price, why not? He liked it. He's worn it, and hey, satisfying a teenager is, "Mission Impossible", so this was an easy win. Personally, it was "O.K." The ring appears to have been painted entirely black, then the black was removed around the edges for the two toned effect. In one place the black was not removed cleanly so it looked a little "Cracker Box-ish" to me. It's weight was also negligible, which is unusual for Stainless Steel jewelry. But....AGAIN, HE LIKED IT.
