I did not even realize that this ring comes in two versions ("fresh orange" & "black")! I thought it looked pretty in the catalog, but wasn't sure how it "worked" on one's hand. Thankfully, Sweetmint shared with us her great, detailed review (plus several real-life images) of this ring (in "black").
I was so excited to get the cluster ring today! It came in J.Crew's small silver box and was wrapped in bubble wrap within the box - a nice extra touch to keep it from getting scratched. I purchased the black version.
It has a large black stone, small black stone, guava stone, bronze stone, crystal stone, and fireball. The ring is heavy, but not too heavy in my opinion - just heavy enough to feel like it has a presence on my finger.
The base of the ring (under the beads) is one solid shape. The J.Crew brand is stamped underneath the cluster section of the ring. The beads seem sturdily adhered - I don't think they'll come off.
One complaint is that the crystal stone has a small white 'cone' inside it. You can actually see this on the images of the ring on the Web site. The ring seems to have a hole in it, and is adhered to the base of the ring with this white piece inside to help hold it in place. You can see the white piece when you look at it closely. Unless you really look, it's not noticeable.
I'm looking forward to wearing the ring with a variety of outfits - it's a fun piece of jewelry and I'd recommend it for anyone wanting something unique. The fireball is sparkelly and looks great with the mix of other colors of beads. :)
"Thanks!" again to Sweetmint for their great review! I think the ring looks great on her hand. I can't wait to try it on, at the store, myself! :)
