My ring arrived today and works perfectly with the Lumia 1520 (few issues with the NFC ring app but used the Nokia NFC tag writer).
sweet spot is just under the camera (aim for the word Zeiss and you will be fine)
Hopefully not much longer now based on the email I got today 😀
I got pretty much the exact same email. Seems a bit like w copy and paste job lol
