It's hard to say, these came in different sizes and weights, and had a variety of features from various manufacturers. The ring does look larger than most I've seen, though.

Yes, they are not very aesthetically pleasing and lack lots of detail. The poster is asking for confirmation it's original, not if it is attractive or ugly.


It most certainly is ugly, but these...
