Story Behind the Art:
Nyoman Rena started to learn wood carving when he was in the third year of elementary school. His grandfather, a senior carver, gave much support to Rena's development. After graduating from elementary school, Rena was introduced to a silversmith in his village by his father. Since then, Rena began learning to craft silver jewelry on Sundays. Making use of his carving ability, Rena combines it with his silver work.

I think the photographer really missed the shot... this ring is cool. Sure the stone is ok, but they should have shown how the scales of the dragon are all cut and sparkle, and the head is much nicer than the picture. The only bad part, I would love to have gotten it as a thumb ring, but it does not come big enough to go over my thumb joint, so I am wearing it on my pinky, it is a little large (wide) for a pinky ring, but I really like it..
In the picture, the ring looked more antique , its very shiney and the amethyst stone is not very big.
I wanted this ring for my little finger which every other size 7 fit this one I should of gotten in a half size larger. Buying jewerly on line is taking a chance.
Once I saw this ring, I knew I had to have it. Though it took longer to arrive than my other order, but still came before the estimated delivery date, it was worth the wait. There's so much detail in the ring that is just absolutely beautiful. I ordered a size 6 and it fits perfectly for me, when I usually wear a size 5 on my ring finger. So, if you plan on buying this ring, expect to get it in a size noted larger than what you normally wear.
The ring is well made and ornate, BUT - the stone is SO SMALL that it bare shows. When I wear the ring now, I turn the stone under so it looks like a silver ring. I have been very pleased with other Worldstock items, but was somewhat disappointed in this because of the size of the stone. I wish that on these items from Worldstock they would give a size or at least show a measurement bar, rather than just a picture.
this ring is very beautiful and unique. The amethyst has very good color. I have never seen anything like it in any store. It is good size - about 10mm in width, which shows the detail of the dragon in great detail. A very good price for genuine sterling silver and amethyst.
