I still think that this is a lovely little ring -- I bought a size 6 to wear it as an accent ring on my pinky finger -- but I am disappointed in the quality of the item.
First, I wish that there had been photographs of the ring from more angles before purchasing, as I was somewhat surprised by the texture of the band itself. The ridges on band make it look a bit cheap and not as classy as it would be without them. Had I seen a better photograph, I might not have purchased the ring.
Second, the gold plating on this ring began to come off within two days of wearing it. I know that plating doesn't last forever, but I expected much better from Birchbox. The underside lost the plating first, fortunately, so I'll still get a bit more wear out of the ring before it starts to look obvious and tacky. Nonetheless, I am quite disappointed to have looked so forward to wearing this ring and to have it turn out to be such poor quality.
