I have a soldier with the Aesthetic Warrior alternate class feature. No natural weapons. Once I equipped a Ring of Fangs (text below), Herolab is showing that my unarmed attacks have the block, grapple, and stun properties. Is this right?

Ring of Fangs says:
When you wear this ring, your teeth become long and sharp, giving you a powerful bite attack. This grants you a special unarmed strike that deals lethal piercing damage and threatens squares within your reach. You must be able to use your mouth to bite to use this unarmed strike, but it does not require a hand to wield. If you are 3rd level or higher, you gain a special version of the Weapon Specialization feat that adds double your level to the damage of this unarmed strike (rather than adding your level).
Aesthetic Warrior says:
At 3rd level, you gain a unique Weapon Specialization with your unarmed strikes, allowing you to add 1-1/2 times your character level to your damage rolls for your unarmed strikes (instead of just adding your character level, as usual). If you can already add 1-1/2 your character level to your unarmed attack rolls (such as due to the vesk natural attack racial trait), you instead can add the block, grapple, and stun weapon special properties to your unarmed strikes.
My reading is that since the Ring of Fangs doesn't literally add 1 1/2 times your level, it doesn't trigger the "If you can already add 1-1/2 your character level" clause. It'd be nice of it does though. So I'm wondering if there's a reason to think it should work this way or if it's a mistake.
