It Came to Me…My Precious

The Aventurine cock ring from Luxotiq is a rigid, band-style cock ring made out of semi-precious stone. It harnesses many of the features of glass but with greater durability. In a very attractive shade of green, it combines function with beauty in a very unique and satisfying way. Take the time to measure yourself to get the right size.

extremely useful review
The first thing I wanted to know when I got the Aventurine cock ring was, what is it? I mean, in this case, I could tell it was cock ring by looking at it, but where did the name come from? As it turns out, the manufacturer of the Aventurine cock ring is a company called Luxotiq and they manufacture cock rings and anal beads made from semi-precious stones. Aventurine is a form of quartz and is considered a semi-precious stone. That’s right; I have a cock ring made out of stone. It happened to come on my partner’s birthday, so I told her that I got her a ring for her birthday. I guess really it’s for me, but if it makes me harder and helps me last longer than it is kind of for her too, right?

Before I go much further, I need to say that I think the Aventurine cock ring is gorgeous. It comes in a padded box almost like a necklace. It comes in two sizes: medium and large. I thought that I would get the medium, but the box says the one I received is a large and due to how it fit, I would tend to agree. These cock rings definitely fall into the band category because they don’t stretch at all. In fact, I think that these are very similar to glass in many ways. They are beautiful, very rigid, and react to temperatures similarly. The one big difference is durability. This puts the Aventurine cock ring in a very unique position as I don’t think glass would really work in this application. Its major competition is going to come in the form of stainless steel rings and the Aventurine ring’s price puts it right into the category with the engraved steel rings. This is a good niche because I think they are prettier than the non-engraved rings and can give the engraved rings a run for their money.

I should also mention care and cleaning. There isn’t much instruction in the box, so I went to their website which said not to put it in the dishwasher for cleaning. It said to use a mild antibacterial soap to sterilize the toy. I emailed them because I don’t feel that this provides a true sterilization and mentioned some other ways to accomplish this. They responded and said that use of 10% bleach solution followed by cleaning should not harm the finish of the toy. They also mentioned that there are no restrictions on lubricants that can be used with the toy.

I think the Aventurine ring is a very attractive, high quality, band-style cock ring, so if you’re looking to make a unique statement with your cock ring, this is a great way to do it.
Experience
After taking some time admiring the beauty and texture of the Aventurine penis ring, I tried it on for size. Due to its rigid nature, it took a little effort to get in place, but not as much as I expected. I wore it for a little while to get a feel for it and was pleased with the sensation of having it on. It isn’t too heavy, but I could definitely tell it was there. I removed it and set it aside so we could shower and indulge in a little foreplay before we got down to business. After some very pleasurable warm-up, I was ready for some action and I realized my cock was a little harder than I wanted it to be which would make getting the ring on more difficult. Surprisingly, with a little effort I was able to get the ring and place and we were playing again a short time later. My partner commented on how attractive the ring looked in place and that it was large enough to be noticeable but not so large that it was distracting. Surprisingly, I found myself at the verge of orgasm more quickly than I expected, so I feel that the size of ring that I have is a little too big to provide me with the resistance I need from a cock ring in order to really delay my orgasm. It also did not seem to extend my orgasm by any measureable amount. By the way, I found some useful information about how to measure oneself for a cock ring on the Luxotiq website.
Follow-up commentary
Well, my partner and I have been able to spend more time with the Aventurine and some opinions have remained while others have changed. There is no question that this is a beautiful and unique cock ring. There also is no doubt that it is a little too big for my taste. I also mentioned that it has a lot of the attributes of glass but is more durable. As it turns out, it shares more attributes with glass than I thought. One of the readers that commented on my original review asked if it would break if it fell on a ceramic tile floor. We have those conditions in our house as well, so I figured I would test that myself. I raised the ring to about chest height and let it fall. It hit the ceramic tile in our bathroom and commenced to break into eight different pieces. It didn't shatter into small pieces, but the fact that it broke at all is an indication of its fragility and means it is completely useless now. I guess it isn't a big loss to me personally, because Eden Fantasys was nice enough to give it to me for free, but if I had paid for it and this had accidentally occurred, I would be pretty upset with myself. The point is, if you purchase one of these rings, be careful not to drop it on a hard surface because it can definitely break.

    Ummmm, thanks for the info about the fragility of this ring.... We feel pretty guilty about our 'dropping' question!
    It sure must suck to be without this beautiful ring........

    Don't worry about it Toying, I usually go for function over form, so I probably wouldn't have used it much any way since it was a little bigger than I needed. Better for me to sacrifice one if it keeps Eden Fantasys from getting complaints about people not realizing they were fragile.

    I really want to try getting this cock ring for my partner, I just need to talk with him about what size he would prefer.

    Thanks, ~LaUr3n~. A ring made of semi-precious stone seemed only natural.
    seaofneptune, on a rigid cock ring, like this one, the right size is critical. Taking a measurement is probably your best bet and then buy accordingly.

    Great review! And good to know that it'll break easily...not something I'll be allowed to handle. I'm a klutz!

    Thank you for the compliment, LoveDove. Just don't handle high above hard surfaces and you should be fine. I guess that might be easier said than done when most bathrooms have tile floors. I had to drop it on purpose, however.
