Story Behind the Art:
Nyoman Rena is a versatile artist in Bali specializing in wood carving and silver work: 'I began to learn how to carve wood when I was in the third year of elementary school. My grandfather, an architect of traditional Balinese buildings, was also a senior carver, was very supportive of me. Then my father introduced me to a leading silversmith in my village, and I began to learn from him on Sundays. Now I use my experience as a carver and as a silversmith when I design my pieces.'

When I first got this ring I wasn't too excited. It was lighter than I expected, it wasn't as vintage looking as it was in the picture, and the stone was a lot lighter. But it has really grown on me and here is why. First off, the craftsmanship and detail on this ring make up for the lack of weight; it is very well made and stands out wonderfully. Second, after a few days the background darkens and the lion really pops out. This ring gets a lot of character. And third, the stone is lighter but it is truly incredible. I realized that I didn't pay for the silver. I paid for the amazing and intricate detail and the blue moonstone. The stone was worth all the money because when you tilt it slightly you see the beautiful phenomena of adularescence. It's almost as if I have the northern lights in a little capsule. Again, this is a truly incredible and unique ring that will get a lot of positive attention.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Almost
I literally counted the days until my ring arrived. I love is very much. The only problem is that it fits bigger that usual. Reason being that because the stone is set higher than expected. I got it for my pinky finger. but had to get is resized.
Beautifully crafted, but, as another reviewer noted, the ring arrives too brightly polished. I went on-line to find how to tarnish silver and found a lot of suggestions. I chose placing the silver of the ring into some chlorine bleach and, almost instantly, the ring had the desired amount of shading from tarnish! The ring has the depth shown in the picture. I guess, I could have waited for the ring to tarnish naturally, but this got the desired look I wanted in no time. I suggest the photo to be changed or a "before and after" "aged" look photo be added. I almost sent the ring back because it was too bright. Now, it looks as advertised - antiqued!
Was going to cancel due to long processing time, but cancellation went in too late and it shipped. When I got it, however, I was so impressed with the excellence of design and artistry that I decided to keep it. Good value for the money after all.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very good quality casting. Deep detail and superior design.
First off, folks, the underside of the ring is hollow for a reason...the moonstone is a natural quartz's and reflects light thruout to
show the color variations ... lighting indoors change according to the type of light blubs such as natural or florescence ~ same as outside
changes as during the day. If you prefer a more defined look to the silver put the ring in a plastic bag with a peeled hardboiled egg NOT touching and let sit (shift rings around) for approximate 20 minutes or so to oxidize .... Buff the upper portions of silver to give a heavy dimension look ~ brings out the Tigers features best this way.... Any heaver (solid back) would cause this ring to shift sideways on your
finger so this beautifully crafted rings is perfect ... I am a female and this ring looks stunning on my middle finger (size 8)
