Like the previous review dated 12/26 I purchased this ring expecting to be as pictured with a dark grapejuice colored Amethyst. Instead I received a lighter version with pink flashes. I re-order the item which overstock was very nice about setting it up immediately even making a note about a dark stone please. I wanted to wait and see the new one which I just received today and it was even worse almost looked like a cheap Kunzite orange-ish purple with pink flashes and even more transparent. It makes my first one look better so I am returning the 2nd one. The detail work on the ring is beautiful and I did get a great deal on mine...
Ordered ring size 10. Received ring size 10.75. Incorrectly represented size & color. Gemstone is so light in color & transparent (see through) that the hairs on my finger & skin tone are easily seen through the stone. Looked like cheap costume jewelry. Stone was also slighty scratched & poor quality. The Amethyst stone is not anything like the quality or color that is represented in the pictures. Do yourself a favor and do not believe the other reviewers. Maybe I just received a poor quality stone. However, I knew for the price it was probably "too good to be true". An Amethyst of the quality represented in the pictures would be $300-400 itself. Use common sense here. I did not. On a positive note, the craftmanship on the silver setting was excellent (except for the incorrect sizing of course). But the incredibly poor quality of the Amethyst neutralized this entirely.
This ring is very valuable for me. I was searching for months on the internet to find a nice Barong ring. Every time that I was searching I saw this beautiful ring but I had the idea that the price was too high for me. But as always in life, quality has his price. After month of daily searching the internet I got the feeling that I had found my beloved ring but it took some more time to realize it. On the day I fully realized that this was my ring I bought this ring and I was feeling very happy. I also felt relieved of a burden; searching the internet every day for hours. I have some knowledge about silver jewelry because I possess a lot and almost every body part of mine carries a silver jewel. Sometimes more, sometimes less, just how I am feeling that day. By purchasing silver jewelry quality and beauty is the most important for me. Some items I designed by myself. I have jewelry that nobody else has. I know that this Beloved Barong Ring is made and sold in some quantities but that makes it for my not less beautiful. The artisan who finished this ring was working with great expertise and joy and created for me a masterpiece. The ring is beautiful finished and all fits beautiful together. He fits me as if I am wearing the ring already my whole life. I am very happy with this ring and congratulate Overstock.com with this Masterpiece, the Men's Sterling Silver 'Beloved Barong' Amethyst Ring. Harekrishnakabita
My husband wanted this ring because it's my birthstone. He is very happy with it. I like it too. It is very attractive and looks good on his hand.

My son wanted a birthstone ring for his 25th birthday but it is not easy finding a man's amethyst ring that was not girlie looking. My son is 6'4" and needed a substancial sized ring. This ring fit the bill perfectly. It is a large, deep colored stone and the setting is heavy silver. The ring is rich looking without being over the top and is very unique. He loves it and has gotten compliments whenever he wears it. Good purchase, thanks Overstock!
