Well I can't say I wasn't warned. Reviews said this was a large ring, but I wasn't expecting a theatrically large ring, like something for a Dark Lord wizard. This is one big honkin' ring, and since it isn't returnable I may just have to throw it into the volcano. It would be great for a theater production prop, or as a gift for your favorite vampire or warlock, I'm thinking Count Petofi for you Dark Shadows fans. I have pretty big hands, but it is not for every day wear unless you have tener cojones, because as someone else said, it isn't for the faint of heart.
