I have looked and looked at this ring and finally decided to purchase it. I was a little disappointed when it arrived since it did not have all the black details on the silver which attracted me to the ring in the first place. It's very shiny silver, and a large sized ring, which looks nice. I will keep it even though it's missing the lovely black details shown in the picture. The stone is very polished and looks good. I always wear a size 7, this one is slightly snug which is good since it's a little heavy. It doesn't turn randomly on my finger. The ring seems comfortable. It's an attractive, large ring, just not identical to the details shown.

I love the earrings. The design is lovely and the only reason I rated them 4 stars is because there were some rough edges that I had to take to the jeweler to polish down.

The stones that make up the necklace slide are very very small...very pretty but more suitable for a teen or young girl than a woman. But I am glad I have it, I will get a nice silver chain and give it as a gift to my 17 year old neighbor.

I was disappointed with this ring, but the return process was so involved that I kept it. It is quite flimsy in its construction, and has a satin finish. Also, it runs small. I like the idea of the ring, but the wire needs to be more sturdy (thicker) and I think it would be more unique looking if it were polished. It's artistic, but not outstanding. I'm sorry I purchased it.

I have gotten many compliments on this ring already. It has two very generously-sized amethysts in a highly polished, modern looking setting. I also like that was handmade by a craftsman in Indonesia rather than bought at a big box jewelry store. To top it off, the ring came in a cute box that would have been great if this had been a gift.

Very pretty pendant. Nicely polished, smooth edges, artistic design. What's not to love!

This ring is beyond beautiful. Polished Sterling Silver and some of the most stunning Abalone I've ever seen. Well worth the price and the wait. I wish I had gotten one for each of my daughters.

another amazing piece highly polished & no trace of areas that would tarnish I put it on a white piece of paper to check you can tell if a sot will tarnish by doing this it will show dark areas on the piece will show if there is still fire scale on it. looks just lie the picture , just beautiful

After looking at the reviews, I was super excited about receiving this necklace. I had an outfit picked out and was planning to wear it for a specific event. I was very disappointed when it arrived. Four out of the five large jade pieces had been cracked/broken and glued back together and all of the stones were polished, rather than the slightly jagged, natural look depicted in the photo. The polished, clean edges of the pieces made the necklace look cheap. However, I really wanted the necklace so I gave it another shot. The fantastic overstock employee said there hadn't been any other complaints about the necklace, so I was hopeful that it was just a fluke. The 2nd one arrived, and though not as many of the jade pieces were cracked/broken (3 this time) and glued back together, there were, nonetheless, cracked/broken and glued back together pieces! Grrrr I really really want this necklace just as it is shown in the photo and not glued back together with polished jade pieces! I'm going to sleep on this before I decide whether I'm going to try a third time...super disappointed :(. The only redeeming part of this purchase was how the overstock staff member made going through the return process less disappointing. Thanks for validating my feelings of disappointment!

The are petite, small and light. The silver is "antique" looking, but will most likely polish up with sterling polish to a more shiney look. I like them because they are so unusual. They are smaller than I expected.

I love this bracelet. It's stylish and elegant. It come beautifully wrapped in a nice pouch. It's not as heavy as similar bracelets that I have looked at, but it has some substance to it. I would have given it 5 stars except that the finish on the bracelet was quite dull when I received it. It's almost as if it was already used or sitting around somewhere for awhile. I used a silver cleaner to clean and polish it up and now it's shiny and clean. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this product.

The earrings are fun - can be dressed up or down - the glass is nicely polished. The bubbles in the glass add visual interest.

The ring arrived quickly, fit perfectly and comfortably, and became an instant favorite! It's very well made, heavy and shiny, just right for those who like 'big' rings that make a statement. Great value for low price! The only way my ring differs from the photo is in the stones--the picture makes them appear to resemble semi-precious stones, perhaps garnets, when in fact they more closely resemble dollops of shiny red opaque fingernail polish. But this ring still has plenty of style and is well worth adding to your jewelry collection.

item came a little scratch on the high polish area both inside and outside. Overstock gave me an extra 10% to keep b/c it's handmade and will have "imperfections". the edge where it opens, could be a little smoother at the corner. it's a little sharp. for the size, the weight could be a little heavier, too. but then i guess if it's too heavy then you cant squeeze through that little opening with your wrist. i guess cuffs aint for me. surprise to say this, but it was just a little too big for me--coming from someone that loves HUGE jewelries. so i am debating about giving it to my neice as a birthday gift.

This is a high polish finish, not the hand made look I was hoping for. Runs about a half size small, One of the outside bands slightly wider than the matching one.

The color of the back-ground Pictured of the bracelet is NOTHING of what it looks like in person. It's a VERY BRIGHT AND A SHINEY SILVER METAL.. Under the METAL details it states - BRASS AND COPPER. It shows in the pic that the metals as a bit dull and matted looking (NOT shiney and HIGHLY glossed). If it was the matted look I would of given it a better rating. I can see that the under side(in pic) to be a high shine so that is what I expected to be a "High Polish" look not the outside. It is also very thin like a sheet of tin.

The ear ring clip is a good buy for the price. Because it is real silver, 92.5 quality, it cost a little more ,but my concern is that the clip is so small it has to be pinched very hard to the ear to try to keep it from falling. It is also very light in weight, so you are not aware that you have lost it because you can't see it or hear it when it touches the ground unless you are on a very hard surface. Consequently, I lose a lot of clips. I will probably look for a better deal and try purchasing a heavier and larger clip that is not pure silver so I can keep up with it. Also, I'm tired of polishing, and I'm tired of losing my clips.

First off, this ring is much shinier than it appears in the photo. The photo makes it look like it might be brushed silver, but it is highly polished. On first appearances it seemed perfectly fine. But then I woke up the next morning and my finger was green. This is odd for .925 sterling silver ring! I thought I'd give it a few more days, maybe it was a reaction with some lotion I was wearing or something- nope! Still green. Needless to say, this ring is definitely not worth the asking price! It's going back.

Tried to write a review earlier but it didn't go through. Love this beautiful feather pendant ~ it arrived quickly and in a pretty little pouch. It's extraordinary in it's detail on both the front and back (it's not reversible, however). I would recommend only taking it to a reputable jeweler for cleaning. DO NOT USE silver polishing solvent or "dips" ~ I did and now my feather has a hard white film on it that won't come off, regrettably. Either get it cleaned professionally or just wipe away any surface tarnish or fingerprints and simply let the grooves and details tarnish naturally. Also, the smooth chain that comes with it is beautiful and of great quality, but keeps catching my hairline on the back of my head and my hair gets wound up and pulled out because of this. But all in all, I LOVE this necklace and the design......I just wish there were cleaning instructions that came with it. Highly recommend this ~ but be careful with any polishing or cleaning!

The sizing is small and the ring turned my daughters finger green. She loved the style, so we coated the inside with clear nail polish to keep it from turning her finger green.
When you want an individualized look, you wear handmade jewelry, but wearing these unique pieces of jewelry means you'll need to clean them as they are exposed to chemicals, the elements and the little messes of everyday life. Because handmade jewelry is so delicate, caring for it requires special measures. Keep your handcrafted jewelry clean and beautiful for years to come by following these simple steps for cleaning and storing unique jewelry.
Copper is popular in many different styles of jewelry, from ethnic designs in handmade jewelry to modern pieces. When new and unfinished, it can be as shiny and pink as rose gold. Over time, the copper will develop a patina and darken into a warm brown color. Although copper tarnishes easily, it is popular with artisans and jewelers who love to work with the soft metal. Follow these instructions to care for your copper jewelry.
Amber is an attractive but delicate ornament. Popular for its deep golden color and natural patterns, amber decorates both antique and modern jewelry, from beaded necklaces to rings and earrings. Handmade amber jewelry from places like Poland, Thailand and India lends an eclectic look to any outfit. This jewelry requires special care, as amber is soft and can be easily damaged by even mild chemicals. If exposed to sudden changes in temperature, amber can crack or even break. For these reasons, care should be taken to protect amber jewelry when wearing, cleaning and storing it. With proper care, your beautiful jewelry will last a lifetime.
Beaded necklaces are beautiful, versatile pieces of jewelry. You can bead a necklace with a variety of beads, from crystals to hand-painted wooden loose beads. Beaded necklaces can be worn with an array of outfits, day or night. They also make great gifts, especially when they are handmade and tailored specifically for the recipient. Beading only takes a few supplies and can be learned easily, yet it is a fun and interesting hobby. Beading a necklace is so simple that you might soon find yourself with a jewelry box full of beautiful beaded necklaces in every color.
