The Druzy Putting Green: A Rather Odd Piece of Golf Jewelry

At first, I didn't know what to make of it.

The headline presents it as a "Cocktail Ring for the Golf Wife" but the styling seems altogether too rustic to complement a contemporary cocktail dress.  The oxidized silver certainly isn't very shiny, and the Garnet Druzy Uvarovite... that crystallized green rock that represents the putting surface... appears to have seen better days.  However it's the silver flag stick that really renders this ring unwearable. Can you imagine what it would be like to wear a ring like this around town... or even just out to dinner?  I can: with an unwieldy object like that on my finger, I'm quite sure I'd end up hurting someone ...or tearing something.  In any case, I'm quite certain disaster would ensue. Then there's the price: $890.00.  It's not quite in my range.

So when a friend of mine showed me this photo the other day I wasn't too impressed.  However I will admit that it's unique.  So with that in mind, I'm posting it, and those who like unique may wish give this ring a second look here.
