"Absolutely Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am so smitten with this beautiful work of art! The photos do not do this ring justice. A diamond shape has been masterfully carved into the stone that can be best admired from head on or side view. The stone is flawless and the ring isnt heavy at all. Lovely Sterling Silver work too! So happy I finally gifted this ring to myself after years of dreaming about it. Thank you for sharing your artistry with us Señorita Sajbin!

"Beautiful Craftsmanship"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The black jade hearts are highly polished and very nice quality. I like the fact that the ear wires hook in the back, so you dont have to use rubber backs to secure them--a really nice feature. I have to wear a lot of black for work as part of my uniform, so I know Im going to get lots of wear out of these. Thank you so much for these lovely earrings!
