Ok this is my review,
The ring comes in a tin box as pictured,which i thought suited the ring great.
Ring is about 2mm thick and is matte stainless steel with a beveled profile.
The engraving (both outside and inside) is of superior quality (you will look so close to find a flaw, but it is impossible to), and deep set (can certainly feel the depth running a fingernail across it). The engraving does not have a dark colour added to make it look more prominent and is small and fine but balances well with the size of the ring (6mm width). Engraving is not laser etched and I feel the engraving will stand the test of time compared to that of a laser etched engraving
People are complaining saying that the writing should go all around the outside of the ring....Heres a couple of lines from the book:
'As Frodo did so, he now saw fine lines, finer than the finest pen-strokes, running along the ring, outside and inside....'. No where does it say it went all round the ring, or halfway....
For the 'One ring to rule them all, One ring to find them' bit, this spans approx half way round the outside.
The 'One ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them' is on the inside of the ring and engraved upon a shiny stainless steel finish.
The whole paragraph (in its entirety) couldnt possibly fit around the outside (too many letters), The whole first line couldnt fit neither, as you would need a wider ring to accomadate the larger letters to make it span the whole way round.
All in all i would highly recomend this ring as the quality really is outstanding. I cant stop looking at it!
Buy it, attempt to find a fault with the engraving, then be happy you bought it :)
Hope this review served you well....
