Best ring I’ve ever owned. Finally decided to treat myself with a product from Townsends that I can wear on a daily basis. The ring may be a wee bit large on the finger I sized (index finger), but it’s snug as a bug on me middle, and I haven’t taken it off since. Thank you Townsends for the little piece of history I get to carry with me at all times. Review by Sirris (Posted on 9/29/2018)
Should come in half sizes! .

The 8 was tight on my finger, so I took to my local jeweler, and while it is pure silver, my ring actually measured 7 and 3/4th. So re-sizing to 8.5 cost me $65! And the stamping is not as precise in the pictures, as mentioned. Review by Marc (Posted on 7/30/2018)
Wonderfully made ring

My wife bought me this ring for my birthday, knowing that im a huge history buff. The cut imprinting looks exactly as it does in the photos, and is crafted very well i tried it out on some wax and was delighted to see the image clearly. I would reccomend this ring to anyone who want a piece of jewely that stands out in a charming way when asked, you can give them a historical story on it. Thanks jas. Townsends!

This ring is not cut as detailed and does not leave a great readable wax impression as in the photos. Photos are deceptive. Review by jonathan (Posted on 11/17/2017)

Beautifully made

The ring is beautifully made in heavy sterling silver. I've wanted this ring for a while, and I finally treated myself now that more sizes are available. I bought the smallest size available, and it's still a wee bit big for me, but I'll wear it on my index finger. Thanks for increasing the sizes available! Review by Lee (Posted on 9/27/2017)
