I saw this lanzadera or navette-shaped ring and thought it was lovely. It was clearly not an antique- although it was masquerading as one and since it was cheap, I thought I’d buy it for myself. Big mistake.
A day after wearing it, a cubic zirconia stone fell out. I had it fixed and kept on wearing it for a couple of weeks. Yesterday, the replacement stone fell out again. Oh boy, I got what I paid for. ;p
Just for comparison, check out the workmanship on the vintage silver lansadera ring on the right.
