I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN HAPPY WITH NOVICA,BUT THIS ITEM EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS,THE PHOTOS DO NOT DO THIS GORGEOUS RING JUSTICE. YOU CAN SEE THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL IN THIS HANDMADE PIECE,IT'S QUALITY THAT JUST ISN'T THERE IN MASS PRODUCED SETTINGS. THE AMETHYST STONE IS A DEEP RICH PURPLE ,BUT WHAT REALLY MAKES THIS RING STAND OUT IS HOW THE STONE IS CUT,ALMOST LIKE A CHECKERBOARD & IT MAKES THE STONE SPARKLE LIKE A PURPLE SUN THE BASKET ALLOWS SUN TO SHINE THRU THE STONE FROM EVERY ANGLE,IT'S STUNNING. THE SETTING THAT HOLDS THE STONE ALSO HAS A BIT OF A VINTAGE DESIGN TO IT. THE STONE IS FAIRLY LARGE, IT IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A DIME & A PENNY IN SIZE,BUT THE SIMPLICITY OF THE SETTING DOESN'T MAKE THE RING APPEAR GAUDY IN ANY WAY. THE ONLY PROBLEM I FOUND WAS THAT THE RING RUNS ABOUT 1 ENTIRE SIZE SMALLER THAN THE STATED SIZE,I WEAR A 6 & ORDERED A 6..IT WAS MAKED A 6 BY THE STICKER WRAPPED AROUND THE BAND,BUT I COULDN'T GET IT OVER MY KNUCKLE. SINCE THERE WAS ONLY A FEW LEFT IN STOCK I CHOSE TO HAVE MINE SIZED & THE JEWELER MEASURED IT & IT WAS JUST UNDER A 5.THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A RANDOM MISTAKE IN MARKING. I ALSO BOUGHT THE MATCHING PENDANT...I CAN'T BELIEVE WHAT GREAT QUALITY AT SUCH LOW PRICES!

And, now, I have the full set of these beautiful amethyst gemstones. Deep rich color on my hand. A simple setting highlights the stone to the best advantage. The ring suggests good taste, without going overboard. I love wearing the whole set, but, mix and match is very do-able, with this piece.
Normally i wear more substantial rings but this was so pretty, i just had to purchase it. i am glad I did. it really is so nice. I purchased the matching earrings too. very pretty. I could see this as a set for a woman with traditional taste but looking for something just a bit different. This is definitely a unique setting.
This ring is as pretty as it looks, and the setting reakky compliments the stone.
