 All rings are in the original condition in which they were found - no cleaning or polishing has been carried out.
The choice of whether to clean and polish is yours .. but the contrast with bronze items can be seen from this picture, which the delighted buyer of
AFR 201-06 sent us, to show how this ring looked after cleaning.

If you wish to convert the millimetre measurements of the rings above to your own country's standard ring sizes,
