Story Behind the Art: Buana learned to craft silver jewelry, from very basic skills like sanding, polishing and making plates to very advanced techniques. 'I am thankful to God for giving me such a great gift so I can make a living for my family. Not much, perhaps, but enough for our simple way of life,' he says.

Arrived in a nice sturdy fabric covered box & I was amazed at the craftsmanship of this ring! The 'cow bone' face was beautifully carved w/clear features & the silver band is delicately designed, but the band itself is very heavy and strong making this a 'long term' piece of jewelry. SIZE IS TRUE. My only regret is the 'bone' face was very white, (but I'm sure they bleach the bone?) ... however ... the white face of the moon did compliment the heavy silver setting. I have a small hand & my size 6 ring was not overbearing for my size. Buy this ring! You will get many many compliments!

It took a longer time to get this ring, and the size runs small: My middle finger is 8, I ordered 8, and it fits my size 7 finger ---- BUT IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!! When you look at the "moon" face, it is one of serenity! Very beautiful. Just order the next size up! And don't be impatient about delivery. It's coming from overseas.
I love this ring and purchased the matching sun face pendant which I wear a lot during the summer. The ring is a bit on the small size so I don't get to wear it as often as I like. It's hard to find a silversmith in my area to size it. The craftmanship is beyond excellent and have now made it a standard to check worldstock for all unusual types of jewelry.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
I purchased this ring for myself. I found the face to be very calming and peaceful and who can't use some calmness and peacefulness in their lives? My almost 20 year old daughter and a friend like it enough that I purchased 2 more! The quality and craftmanship is wonderful. I would recommend this ring to anyone that thinks they may like it...

How is the quality of the product? This is beautifully made!
I came across this ring just browsing Novica jewelry and it immediately caught my eye. It was the perfect gift to a very close friend for her birthday, it is so fitting for her style and I thought she'd love a little reminder of serenity whenever she wears it and now she has it on every day! I loved it so much I got one for myself as well :) It is very good quality and the face of the moon is lovely, very serene and calming. Like other reviewers, I get compliments on it pretty much every time I wear it. I found it fits true to size, as does my friend who received it as a gift. So happy with my purchase!
This ring was as it looked in the photo, except that you have to be close up to see that there's the face carving, otherwise it just looks like a white dot. The moon face might as well have been made of plastic & had a plastic-like shine to it; nothing really shouts 'hand carved,' which is the quality I'm looking for when I buy handcrafted items. For these reasons, I felt the price was too high.
Hello clydesluggo, the artisan obtains the cow bone from a supplier, who obtains the bone from cattle processing companies. Which is to say, no cows are sacrificed in order to make the jewelry--the bone is a secondary by-product from cows raised for other purposes. have a great day!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 15, 2014
I am a true size 8 in rings but depending on the ring I can even go to a size 9. If I buy this ring will the size 8 be too small? Normally I would get a nine to be sure but there is nothing past the size 8 in this ring being offered... what should I do?msholly52 on Sep 21, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
