"Love this ring!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This ring is so much prettier than even the picture showed. I love the way the stone sits on the band and the stone is beautiful. I have worn this ring many times since receiving it and I love it more every time I wear it. Beautiful workmanship by the artist. Im sure I will be purchasing additional items from this artist.

"Beautiful & elegant looking"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The color of the stone is exactly as pictured online; it is a gorgeous soft green. The silver has been well-polished; there are no rough spots anywhere. The whole ring has been very well-made! One of the reasons I bought this ring is because it was made in Guatemala. I have been there so I feel a special connection to the ring and the artist. I also love the artists explanation of the design of this ring - it symbolizes how jade emerges from the earth. Because of its unique design, the ring can be worn 2 different ways, creating 2 very different looks! I love it and am proud to wear it.
