    Even back in the glory days, it was just tin and zinc. Not only were they never apparently the Cesare Attolini of gothic lolita, but they were never the Cartier either.

    ... They may, however, have been the Tiffany of gothic lolita. Don't get me started.

    Yeah I know they are made using the same materials, but the new released feels cheap, I have a bunch of them and the material is like, soft? The items from mid-2000s feel stronger, even weight more.

    This one with the coffin is not centered with the ring, and I don't like the "antique" treatment they put on those ring/necklaces, its like they smashed a stone on them LOL

    Please don't tell me this is one of those gumball-machine prong rings that you're expected to bend to fit you :lol:

    Coffin rings seem to be something of a rarity, but in the spirit of Moitie Minus Moitie, I found an alternative in 875 silver with a working coffin:

    I wonder if that is less of a treatment and more the result of budget materials, casting and processing. :p
