When I opened the package I was unhappily surprised to see the 8 gauge ring I ordered was way too small for my use. I initially was p.o.'d, but then i remembered that i was never dissatisfied with anything I bought from Chain Gang in the past so i dug further. I learned i should have paid attention not only to the gauge of the product but also to to size. Had I done that, I would never have ordered what I did. So now I own a piece of great acrylic jewelry for which i have absolutely no use, and am out about seventeen dollars thru my own fault. I have subsequently ordered another ring for which I am still awaiting delivery, but this time i believe I ordered the proper size (inner diameter) also.
