Condition: We have re-tipped all the claws of this ring in our Norwich city centre workshop. The ring itself is in excellent condition all bar a slightly below average join. As we end up sizing 95% of the rings at the point of sale this will be take care of at that time. If the ring fits we will run some more solder into the small gaps to repair. We never like doing more work to a ring than is required.
