*A word on vintage jewelry; Sometimes it is imperfect. Sometimes the bezels don't match up, or a band is set slightly off. This is the nature of vintage jewelry and jewelry in general. Everything is not always perfect, like humans there can be small flaws. Please understand this when buying vintage jewelry*
