I purchased this beautiful Tiger's Shell cameo as a gift for my Mom for her birthday. Like the other Michael Valitutti cameos that I've purchased, the setting & carving are simply stunning! This is a very difficult shell to carve as it's thinner than the standard shell used for classic cameos, so it takes a master carver to execute a complex carving of this type. The setting is beautiful & is a perfect compliment to the gorgeous cameo. All in all, this is an amazing piece & I would highly recommend it to any one who loves cameo jewelry.
Yes, I'm partial to M. Valitutti designs but I always try to be fair in my reviews. First, this ring fits true to size and lies on my finger as though it were made for me. You can note the way the ring is styled downward rather than upward in the photo. Second, this ring is soild and well made. The band is a brushed satin. This is not a typical style for Valitutti, the design is less intricate. However, the size and comfort of the ring are perfect for everyday wear. Finally, the stones all appear secure. The chrome is a medium green and the garnets are a dark red. The sapphires are set as accent stones and are not noticeable. In sum, Beautiful and Fairly priced ring.
