The ring is massive and looks nice, but I have strong doubts that it is real 925 Sterling silver. the color is not like 925 silver and there is no stamp (although a stamp does not mean anything). Maybe I will ask a jeweler to do a test.
Some months later: we still love this ring but I always wondered about the metal. Since I work at the chemical department of the University where we have a raster electron microscope facility, I asked them to do an analysis of the rings metal. The accuracy of this method is 1-2%. It turned out that the ring is in fact made of 925 silver! See the data yourself.
This silver Aragon Ring is very beautiful. I like the green stone, even though it's artifically made. I wouldn't give this to a man who doesn't like a fantasy-theme, but on the other hand, it is not exclusively suitable for Lord of the Rings fans.
As an avid fan of Lord of the Rings I have wanted this ring for some time but was not sure I would get the size right, or that it would be such a good reproduction of the original. After much research on UK to US sizing I took the plunge and it fits perfectly, and I am blown away by the detail on the ring, it is very good, I wear it every day.
The ring is heavy and definitely silver and is quite wide but thin so it does not stick out too much The detail on the snakes is good and the green gemstone is not too big but striking It is a good replica of striders ring It is a fabulous ring for a male or a female with large hands It fits me perfectly I have wanted this ring for ages and I am pleased with my purchase
Love this ring, had been thinking of getting Aragorn's ring for some time, but couldn't really find a design that I really liked. This one is great! Nice design looks just like pictured, seems good quality and quick delivery!
