It was a very scary time for their family as the wife couldn't receive treatment or surgery because of the risk of losing the baby. Rafael's wife and their baby both survived and were able to recover and live healthy lives.

Rafael Antonio Zurdo has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $200 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to invest in materials for his work, such as jade and sterling silver.

"NOCTURNAL ELEGANCE "

This is a beautiful silver and black ring. It is delicate and well made. The unusual shape that holds the jade sits on the body of the ring enhancing it's beauty. I love the style and workmanship of this ring.

"Beautiful!"

I received the wrong size ring. No hassle with the return. I ordered the correct because it's a beautifully designed ring. I love the size. I also love the black jade and the beautiful silver.

1 Testimonial for Rafael Antonio Zurdo

Wow! Amazing craftsmanship! I have both the ""Lord of the Land"" ring and now the ""Royal Maya"" ring. Rafael is amazing. These are second to none in their beauty. I will continue to follow his talent and undoubtedly purchase more of his artwork, a.k.a. jewelry.... Wow.... Novica - spectacular place to shop.
