This ring just arrived. I must say, that it "pushes the envelope," in that there are not many amethyst rings for men, but this has a very pleasant quality. In size and heft, it is not all that different than the high school class ring that I lost many decades ago, but the workmanship, the detail, the color and tone of the stone, the cut of the stone are all superlative. I am looking forward to wearing this. Inside was a card indicating that it complies with fair trade guidelines....a product of Indonesia.

This ring looked exceptional online, but even better on my hand. Almost immediately, I have received many compliments from men and women. The color catches your eye, and the design is both strong and stylish. It has quickly become one of my favorite rings. This is a statement ring--not too big, not delicate, but shouts quality.

I really had high expectations for this ring. The craftmanship and look is very good, and i liked the idea of helping out craftsmen of other countries. 2 issues though, First the stone, its very thin, I mean you can see your finger underneath it when it's on your finger, In my case, it makes the stone look very pale. Secondly, I work with my hands and the way the settting is so tall it hits and catches on everything. It is already recieving damage to the soft silver around the stone. The price is good, the shipping was fast and flawless. The included information and unique packaging is a great touch. I'll just have to put it up, not wear it everyday and save it for "occasions".
Stunning buy this ring you won't be disappointed! Go for it! I got it on sale even better!!!!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes

Really like the clarity of the stone in this ring and the carved detail. The ring is really nice. The size of the ring runs large so unfortunately it spends more time sitting on the night stand than it does on the finger I bought it for. Going to have to return it to be sized down so make sure you go a little small rather than larger.
This was something I had always wanted to get, a ring with my birthstone which is amethyst. In the past jewelers would not carry them as "men do not wear that gemstone, it's too effeminate." That really would make me upset and I usually told them to go pound sand! Anyway, when I saw this one I took the plunge and boy am I glad I did. This is an excellent piece of jewelry, very sturdy and while I would never do so, it is a ring you could wear all the time. Have a care though, as real amethysts are somewhat brittle and can chip. EXCELLENT ring, and quite beautiful. Have gotten a lot of compliments on it. Buy it!
This is a very nice ring. The stone is securely set. The ring is hand made and well finished. Another reviewer thought it recalled their high school class ring and I certainly agree. In look and feel it is a close match for my high school class ring from 1972. ( Also lost). Purple stone. (go dragons). It is not effeminate. Sizing is exact. I suggest you have your finger sized at a jeweler. Whole size makes it a touch loose or snug depending. I wear an 11. 12 is too large and 10 is too small. I hope to power the energy of the amethyst by wearing the ring daily. The ancients thought amethyst would protect you from getting drunk. I quit drinking 5 years ago and wish to harness all natural and supernatural forces in my favor to help prevent me from drinking again. As you know, .925 is coin silver. It will show wear but polish nicely. It is hallmarked. The little bag is came in is obviously handmade too. Nice touch.. I could not be more pleased with this internet purchase. The additional story of 3rd world craftsmen is appealing. I wish them well. Perhaps we will meet in the afterlife and I can thank them for helping me on my journey here..
