These earrings are just as pictured, just as described. The color was mostly navy-just like the picture. Great to wear with jeans. I also own these earrings in Variscite (light green). They are made well and I receive many compliments on them both. The price was also great!
I have a Pinterest page titled Ghost Places. It features all manor of abandoned places, including trains and amusement parks. Mainly though, there are many photos of once stunning rooms in mansions and palaces, the majority in places like France, Poland... many places where the wealthy were driven out when the Nazi's invaded. But, though most have long been abandoned, even in their faded state you can see and feel what they once were. When I came to Overstock, I was only casually looking at jewelry. But I, a lifelong fan of very clean, streamlined design, found myself drawn over and over again to the ornate, often seemingly over-the-top rings designed by someone named Michael Valitutti. This ring is my first Valitutti and it is absolutely stunning(!). everything is noteworthy (the four tiny sapphires do help a little to break things up a bit but are, otherwise, besides the point) and the overall design is absolutely sigh-inducing. In the online photo, the variscite cabochon appears rather mute but it is actually quite a lovely marbled cool green stone, which juxtaposes very nicely against the stunning gold-over-silver scrolled metal detailing. This is a stunning piece of jewelry that makes a statement and commands attention, without ever crossing the line into gaudiness. It is truly breathtaking. This purchase was supposed to be me just dipping my toe in the Valitutti pond (it was on sale for *** so... why not?), but I promise this will not be the last Valitutti (already trying to decide which of the 30 or so I've favorited will be the next). Nonetheless, this ring is going to get A LOT of wear. As you might have guessed, everything about this ring reminds me of a once-glorious room in some abandoned Polish mansion I've seen on Pinterest. I am drawn to this man's designs the way I'm drawn to those places. This ring and, in fact all of Valitutti's rings, take me to those places. They're like history on your hand.
