Bad experience with Rio Grande, do not buy any findings there. I
bought a sterling silver mans ring finding terrible! Wall thickness
0.4mm Low end junk for $12.88 (production cost of the piece in mass
production approx. $3.05 very high calculated), could not be used.
When people start to save on silver thickness, then you know they are
a no good company. The problem is either greed or incompetence, both
are unacceptable. Rio Grande, I call them Rio Cheapo! Cheers, Klaus
