Story Behind the Art:
Achara and her husband have been designing, crafting and marketing silver jewelry for over 20 years. 'At first we crafted our unique products by ourselves. Then we learned that the hill tribe people of northern Thailand had wonderful silversmith skills, but that most of their jewelry is not traditionally considered very marketable. So we decided to work in close association with them to promote their culture worldwide. Our mission is to create unique designs in great quality silver jewelry.'

This ring is very interesting, truly an enigma. It is heavy and the ingraving is excellent. I didn't like the brown paint that was painted in the ingraving, so I removed it, and now the ring looks like the picutre. I think the ring is a little masculine in appearance, but I wear it anyway. I love to support crafts people in Asia. Their work is fabulous. This ring is a great vaule.

I love my new Enigma Ring. It is even prettier than the picture with the inside detaiing and solid construction. I wear it on my middle right finger and get many compliments on it! Good value, too, for the price.
I love this ring. It was a gift for my sister's 21st birthday and the reason I picked this ring was because I knew I wanted to get the inside engraved & this ring was perfect because it was wide enough and flat enough. The jeweler loved the ring, too! I would definitely recommend this ring because it is playful. You can wear it both ways and it always looks sharp!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Strong quality. The description says you can open the ring to make it bigger if need be, but the silver was so strong, I don't think that would be possible!
How accurate was the sizing? The size seemed to run a bit small.
I purchased this ring around 6 months ago and have not taken it off! It's beautifully crafted, and looks wonderful on. It has been very durable, and of excellent quality. Definitely looks better (and is way more comfortable) with the widest side up. The only down side is that soap and debris can get stuck in the fold of the ring--just keep it clean!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
