I'm unsure how this seller has acquired such great reviews--I'm assuming she hasn't had many custom orders so people haven't had to talk to her. She went back and forth between being nice and rude. I ordered a custom ring, but when it arrived I wanted it to be set a bit lower so she agreed to look at it and I sent it back. She determined lowering it would ruin the ring, so I told her to send it back as is b/c it was still beautiful. She decided to change it without speaking to me first, sent the ring back, and it was ruined. The prongs were deformed and asymmetrical, the stone was scratched, and the band had dings and scratches. This experience will delay my engagement by 2 months. As an etsy seller myself I would recommend you stay away from this shop. Update: seller literally threatened to get back at me for this review.

The ring is AMAZING! The picture doesn't come close to capturing the beautiful craftsmanship. The seller was also amazing, responsive and very easy to work with!

About

Love what I do....

I've always loved jewelry & natural gemstones. As a child I'd spend hours playing in my mother's jewelry box trying on her rings, necklaces and clip on earrings.

Looking back, it's funny that I spent most of my adult life working for others doing anything but what I loved. Little did I know that my higher power would lead me on a fulfilling journey that would change my life forever.

I moved to Arizona, the only person I knew was my son. Finding myself lonely, I decided to join a dating site. Within a week, I met Sam who was to become a good friend. He was in the business of making and selling jewelry and collecting gem specimens. Sam introduced me to largest Gem show in the United States. The Gem & Mineral Show in Tuscon, AZ., which was only 72 miles from my new home.

I spent several hours looking at all the natural beauty of gem specimens & hand crafted jewelry. It was magical, I was filled with excitement & joy. I came upon the booth of a gentleman who was there representing the Internation School of Gemology. I walked past at first, then stopped dead in my tracks, turned around and that moment changed my life forever. I knew what I wanted to do, I wanted to study Gemology.

While studying Gemology, Sam taught me the basics of working with precious metals and I took a few classes at the Mines & Mineral Museum in Phoenix. I was obsessed...had more passion for creating and working with gems and precious metals than anything I'd ever done. This is it...I was home.

Sam has sinced passed away from Brain Cancer, I miss him, he was a good friend. I truly believe my higher power put him in my life for this reason...Thank you Sam..forever and always.
