      I started a collection of colored gemstone, men's rings, with amethysts from melanesia (Indonesia, Papua, Jaya, Bali and so forth). I began Tweeting questions into the cloud, on melanesian mythologies, in order to discover the cultural significance. Surprisingly, I received answers from the other side of the earth. So, it became my gateway into exoctic cultures. I found the Greek myths the most romantic origins of amethyst, itself. This is truly remarkable ring. I get compliments from both men and women, whenever I wear it. Yes, I do recommend it.

    • Stone color not as pictured
      Verified Purchase

      The amethyst stone is pale,not at all the rich hue as in the picture.Actually made this purchase in 8/2016. Kept the ring any way because of the interesting setting which by the way is not antiqued as shown either but I expect in time will look that way.

    • Missized Ring & Clear/Transparent Amethyst
      Verified Purchase

      Ordered ring size 10. Received ring size 10.75. Incorrectly represented size & color. Gemstone is so light in color & transparent (see through) that the hairs on my finger & skin tone are easily seen through the stone. Looked like cheap costume jewelry. Stone was also slighty scratched & poor quality. The Amethyst stone is not anything like the quality or color that is represented in the pictures. Do yourself a favor and do not believe the other reviewers. Maybe I just received a poor quality stone. However, I knew for the price it was probably "too good to be true". An Amethyst of the quality represented in the pictures would be $300-400 itself. Use common sense here. I did not. On a positive note, the craftmanship on the silver setting was excellent (except for the incorrect sizing of course). But the incredibly poor quality of the Amethyst neutralized this entirely.

    • Good design
      Verified Purchase

      Nice design and fits nicely. It is a true statement piece. The amethyst is very pale in color and does not look like the ring that is represented. It would have been much better if the stone was a darker color.

    • Great interesting design
      Verified Purchase

      Nice ring overall - great design that is hand-crafted; beautiful stone. The mounting on the underside of the stone is a tad loose so the stone rattles a tiny bit in the setting.

    • Awful stone
      Verified Purchase

      Like the previous review dated 12/26 I purchased this ring expecting to be as pictured with a dark grapejuice colored Amethyst. Instead I received a lighter version with pink flashes. I re-order the item which overstock was very nice about setting it up immediately even making a note about a dark stone please. I wanted to wait and see the new one which I just received today and it was even worse almost looked like a cheap Kunzite orange-ish purple with pink flashes and even more transparent. It makes my first one look better so I am returning the 2nd one. The detail work on the ring is beautiful and I did get a great deal on mine...
