This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.
Onyx sings the music of the night through a ring for men. Set in sterling silver, the ring with modern Balinese styling is handcrafted by Bali's Nyoman Rena.
One prong-set oval-cut onyx measures 13 mm wide x 17 mm long
Metal: Sterling silver
Crown: 15 mm wide x 20 mm long
Band width: 5 mm
Story Behind the Art: Nyoman Rena recalls, 'I began learning to carve wood when I was in elementary school. My grandfather, an architect of traditional Balinese buildings and 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.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I am very pleased with this ring. It has a very unique design, and I like the handmade characteristics of it. It has more personality than if it had been cast from a mold in some factory. It is truly authentic. It is very substantial, and the silver is thick; even on the part which lies on the bottom of your finger. Usually this portion of a ring with this shape is rather thin, but it is thick and sturdy with this one.
It is polished well, and the shiny silver contrasts brilliantly with the onyx. I have a watch with onyx inlays, and this ring matches wonderfully with it. I have never done a jewelry review, so I'm not sure what other factors to focus on, but I can say that it is a very fine quality ring, and looks quite masculine (something I was concerned about).
One other thing, I appreciate NOVICA. From what I understand, NOVICA helps artists/artisans from around the world sell their unique items on international markets like Overstock.com. This is very cool to me because it provides them the opportunity to actually profit from their efforts, and also because it provides customers like you and I the opportunity to purchase unique pieces like this ring. What a wonderful idea! It also came with a beautiful pouch, with a metal NOVICA tag. Very fine presentation.

How accurate was the sizing? I think the sizing was accurate, but I don't have enough experience with rings to know for sure.
I desperately need a ring in a 1/2 size (10 1/2) for a graduation gift to my grandson. Can you make this happen?dreadfoot on Apr 20, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello dreadfoot, A professional jeweler could most likely resize the ring one-half size, as the back of the band is plain. Overstock does not provide that service. We hope this helps you and thank you for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 26, 2013
