I confess, I bought this to give as a gift, but I like it so much I'm keeping it. (Sh, don't tell. I got her something else that's very nice.)
Very pretty and unique. A little snug in summer's heat, but my winters are long and cold. Thank you!

Lovely and clear. Exactly as pictured!
A great place to find unique jewelry in sterling silver, 10k and 14k white and yellow gold and other metals. We truly love what we do.
Below are definitions of the different types of gems you can purchase for your jewelry.
NATURAL RUBIES, EMERALDS & SAPPHIRES
These precious gems are prized for their hardness, color and beauty. We try hard to select only the finest color and clean material, which allows the fine-cut of the stone to sparkle. We like to think of a sapphire, ruby or emerald to be more than just a spot of color -- we want it to be alive. This is why most of the small round stones that we use are "diamond-cut". This allows as much light as possible, to come into the stone and mirror back to the eye. The term "diamond-cut" refers to cutting the gem like a fine diamond would be cut - to give it the most "life" or sparkle. These stones are slightly more expensive, however well worth it. In some case we choose a gem with a native cut which is a deeper cut stone to bring out a more intense color.
We also like to sprinkle our designs with color, ie: Amethyst, Garnet, Opal, Peridot, Tourmaline, Blue Topaz and other semi-precious stones, or birthstones. We are committed to using some of the finest cut, and richest in color of these stones. We are always looking for new cuts and shapes; and try to use the stones that will represent the most desirable color - not washed-out, faded or too dark stones. Again, these stones are more expensive, however, in our opinion, well worth it.
A Renzite is a laboratory grown Cubic Zirconia crystal, which is then diamond cut (faceted like an ideal-cut diamond) - to give you the most true diamond look-alike stone possible. They are hard, and mirror back the light to give maximum sparkle.
SYNTHETIC LAB GROWN STONES
We understand the need for synthetic lab grown stones. In the future, natural gemstones will be a rare commodity. The price of natural stones is climbing every year. We also understand price is a very important consideration when selecting a piece of jewelry. This is why we offer synthetic lab grown stones in many of our designs. However, just like in natural gemstones, there are different qualities of synthetic stones; and just like natural stones, the cut of the stone can make it into a lively touch of color or a dull dot. All of the synthetic stones we use are synthetic corundum (which is a very hard material), and "diamond-cut". We try to select the most desirable color and get the most sparkle out of them. These are not "cheap" stones, these are lab grown with the same qualities of the natural stone in color, hardness and life. Which means durability and lasting beauty.
Enjoy and happy shopping,

Additional policies and FAQs
Some of the sterling silver bands have been oxidized which shows the design off. It can give a ring a very nice dramatic look. If you experience any darkening on your finger it could be a little polishing residue left on the ring you can easily remedy this buy washing the ring using dish soap.
