Opia Black and Gold Chunky Ring
Advantages: Highly fashionable, very cheap
Disadvantages: Sometimes uncomfortable, leaves residue
Primark is one of those stores that you either love or hate. Fortunately for Primark the vast majority of fashion lovers flock to their store in their millions to grab and snatch at high fashion garments at a fraction of the price while the haters look on in anguish at the never ending queues of excitable women and moaning men. I am of the former: I love Primark. I will brave the queues for the latest fashions if it means I make a big saving in the long run. The reason I brave the big queues is for items like this- highly fashionable and on trend items like this retail for £10plus in other stores such as Miss Selfridge and Top Shop whereas this piece of costume jewellery set me back a measly £2.
This ring is a gold band and is quite chunky and thick it feels very sturdy when it is worn and comfortable providing that you select the correct size. The main feature of the ring is the huge stone which comes attached to the gold band. The stone is black and very shiny and has quite a 'grungy' look to it, around the edge of the stone is small gold beads that are also very shiny and make it look expensive. The whole look of the ring together makes it very versatile due to the simplicity of the design and colours it goes well with many, many outfits and is great for both day and night.
The ring came in 3 different sizes: small, medium and large. I would advise that if you wish to purchase this ring then you should try it on. This can cause some problems as the ring is attached to a plastic backing and usually has a plastic tie on it too so it is difficult to try it on! However, if you do find it is too big or too small you can always try it on different fingers as it looks great no matter how it is worn.
The downsides to this ring are that, obviously given the price, the ring is not gold and is an imitation metal instead, therefore it leaves a green/brown residue on my finger when I have been wearing it which does look unsightly but is easily washed off and is not visible when the ring is being worn. Another downside to the ring is that it is very big on the finger meaning that you can't wear any other rings on your hand or it looks too much! The size of the ring can also mean that it digs in to the skin near the knuckle which can be uncomfortable and irritating.
Overall, I really like wearing this ring and have worn is both day and night. For just £2 this ring has had a lot of wear out of it and still look in pristine condition. I would definitely recommend this item!
