The item broke after 4 uses actually 2 uses I wore it after I purchased it used it twice and wore it to the store to show them the defective stone. The stone broke in half and appears to be crumbling for no reason other than it is defective. I have had the item for less than 30 days and it is already ruined. Unfortunately Ben Bridge does not guarantee this item against defects unless you buy a warranty for it regardless of time of purchase. First purchase at Ben Bridge and last Jared offers 30 days satisfaction guarantee at a minimum out of 150.00 not a lot but non the less.
