This ring looks exactly like the photo. It is beautiful and well-made. It is also a nice weight, not hollowed out like so many rings are. The sizing was accurate. It is very noticeable because it is a fair size, I have received many compliments! Overstock shipped it in a gift box, which was packaged in a secure cardboard box, so it arrived safely. I have had mail in padded envelopes stolen (someone at the post office sorting room!), so I was pleased that Overstock packages this way.
I bought this for my girlfriend for her birthday. She could not have been happier when she opened her gift. It looks beautiful on her finger and she has received many comments on it from friends and strangers alike. The green and pink gold catch the sunlight and the ring shines and stands out on her finger. I would highly recommend this ring to anyone.
I really enjoy Black Hills jewelry and this ring is no exception. I love how wide the band is, even on the bottom. The only thing that I didn't like is the fact that the colors are very deep and rich - like you see in the older pieces. And the edges of the ring are rough and should have been smoothed down a little bit more. Overall, though I am extremely satisfied and will look for more pieces in the future.
I bought the ring as a present for a friend. It was a little less substantial than I thought it would be; however the friend was thrilled with the ring. She never takes it off. A warning -- the sizes run very small. If you need a 7, order an 8.
I have several Black Hill Gold rings but the ring I ordered at Overstock is my favorite. It is well made,shows off the Black Hill gold, and I get a lot of compliments when I wear it. The price was more than reasonable considering the excellent quality of the piece.
Love this ring. While it is more flat (leaves not raised) & has no open spaces, I found it to be even more wearable & comfortable than my old (15 yr old) Black Hills ring. The band is wide and substantial. The ring shines and sparkles. As an RN I can wear it daily without catching or pulling, yet it is very noticable. Recieves many compliments!!! Only problem was that the size was too small for my right hand. I ordered a 6 for a 5 3/4 size finger which was way too tight. It was snug on my left finger (5 1/4 size). Thus I returned the ring and requested the size be checked and a size larger sent. The ladies @ O.co were wonderful with assistance & I'm looking forward to recieving the proper size shortly. I think any one would LOVE this beauty! Just be sure and check your sizing. Can't wait to recieve my new one!!!!!!
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Less domed in appearance - leaves more flat on the band. Does not catch on anything!!!
- How accurate was the sizing? Either an error w/ a size 5 mailed or runs small
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Substantial band. Beautiful on finger.
I was replacing a Black Hills Gold Ring I had bought 20 years ago in the Black Hills. I am very pleased that this stands up next to that one. I'm very pleased.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? good likeness
- How accurate was the sizing? true to size

I love my ring, it is just as it looked in the photo. I have had many people ask me where I got it and I told them Overstock.com . Overstock is my first shopping choise, and has been for years now. Thank you once again for a wonderful product.
I really like this ring. Was looking for an inexpensive wedding ring that had some green gold in it to match a favorite ring, circa 1930s. This ring fit the bill nicely. Pretty, a bit unusual for a wedding ring but not horrifically flashy. Very reasonably priced, esp. with a 20%-off coupon from Overstock.com email and a sale price. Would also be a nice casual ring, too. The mix of green, pink, and yellow golds is pretty and subtle. The colors are supposed to deepen with age, so we'll see. Shipping was fast and reliable.
This ring was exactly what I expected. I have one that is over 20 years old and the style never gets outdated. I purchased this ring for a friend who admired mine. If you want some American made glitz at a reasonable price, this is it! This style can be worn by male or female. It is definitely a unisex piece of jewelry. If you're hesitating to buy this one, don't. Get it before it's gone. I love Black Hills Gold. The colors only seem to appear warmer as it ages.
Took me three times to finally get the ring, but I am very pleased with it. I ordered it in my size and it was too small. Sent it back and ordered the correct size, but it was sent to the wrong address, but the third time was a charm. The ring sparkles more than the picture shows; the colors are richer, the detail more sharp. I like the half band and believe that if the design were continued all around the ring it would be uncomfortable to wear because of the texture of the carvings. As it is, it is very comfortable. I wear it everyday as a wedding band.
This ring is much nicer in person! Absolutely beautifully crafted. I like that it is made here in U.S. Very comfortable and great value. A couple of things: make sure that you size up. I'm glad that I did. Also, be sure to thoroughly clean it and polish with a jewelry cloth. This brings out the details and the rose and green gold colors more. I think that it has been in stock a while and the cleaning really brings it to life. I have always been a black hills gold fan since 1980 and the line is really built to last. I purchased this for my central wine coast trip this coming September. Love the leave and grape design being a wine enthusiast.

I looked and looked before I made this decision.This ring is amazing!! I have had oodles of compliments and the most important thing---it's just what I wanted.....something different, remarkable cratsmanship, Black Hills Gold. I'm hooked and I WANT MORE!! I have my eye on the antiqued band for next time!! Enjoy this ring!! I can guarantee you'll love it as much as I do.
I just think the ring is beautiful.I know of at least 5 diffrent designers of black hills gold(Coleman*South*DakotaDesigns*Rushmore gold*and the original Landstroms) and they all have beautiful and slightly different styles (some have raised leaves some don't) I love them all .This ring by Dakota Designs is no exception. It fits well and is very comfortable.THANKS OVERSTOCK.COM
Strong points:+ Overstock.com is so easy to find and order things. Great descriptions and pictures.+ My order was shipped and received on time and in good order. Weak points:- The product did not actually look like the picture on the website. I got a ring like this 31 years ago (graduation present from my parents). The part I liked the best about my original ring is the leafs seem to be elevated above the band ... there are open spaces between the leaf and the band. This adds depth and separation between the leaf and the band. It also sets the grapes apart from the band and leafs. You can actually see these spaces on the product picture on the website. The actual product has the leafs soldered right to the band, making it cumbersome to differentiate the leafs from the band. I have not yet decided whether or not I will return the ring.
