I fell in love with this ring the minute I saw it. I looked at many rings from Overstock.com and rings made from Hawaiian wood. For the money I spend I feel that I have a value. Moonstone was quick to answer my e-mails and assure me that the silver was very sturdy and should not bend as I have had silver rings bend on me in the past. Also the ring looked exactly like the picture as I was worried there might be a variation. Priority Mail was fast!
