I have waited to post this feed back on this ring for sometime now. Unfortunately, this ring is not what I envisioned and has failed to grow on me since I received it. This is partly due to the craftsmanship ship of the ring - the stones look like they are 'stuck' right on top of the band and really stick out, the bird is not properly centered in the middle of the two stones, and I am not sure what the stones are supposed to be because they are both so tiny they look black in the bezel setting. The ring was also supposed to be a 6.5 but fits closer to a 6 so I can barely get it on the intended finger. For the stones, I asked for a red garnet and a ruby and I specifically asked for the ruby to be by the birds head and the garnet to be placed besides the bird's tail - but as far as I can tell I received a pink garnet and a ruby (but I have to look at the stones from the bottom because they are so dark on top) - OR I received the correct stones, but they were placed backwards from what I asked for. To top it all off, this ring took well over a month to receive and I was charged $260.00, when the listing clearly states that the stones I selected for the ring would cost $250.00. I have spent a long while trying to look past the aforementioned issues I have with the ring, but I cannot and realize this ring simply did not turn out well.

This ring is everything I dreamed of. My wedding is in June and I honestly just don't wanna wait until then to wear this. I ordered this as my wedding band. Perfect sizing, excellent quality. Love it!

About me:

Inherent to the nature of all handcrafted items, there are subtle variations in color, size, and shape. These variations let you know that an artisan was truly “hands-on” in creating a unique work of art and should be considered part of what makes your purchase special.

Jewelry care:
Your jewelry should be the last thing you put on. Please avoid applying hairspray or perfume while wearing your handmade jewelry and avoid other cosmetics that may discolor or damage your jewelry. Jewelry should be cleaned with a soft cloth when necessary.

Silver care:
For most pieces, I recommend using cleaning cloths specifically designed for silver jewelry. Some of my work has an intentional darkened patina (oxidized). To maintain this patina, use fine steel wool or a silver cleaning cloth to polish it, working carefully so as not to remove all of the black areas. If more patina is removed than intended, you can do one of two things: 1) ship the item back to me and I will refinish it, OR 2) wait for the patina to return naturally. Soap and water may be used to clean dirt and oil if necessary.

Gemstone and Bead care:
Porous stones, pearls, beads, shell, resin, wood, concrete, cork, porcelain, and glass should not be submerged in jewelry cleaner. I would recommend using gentle cleaning cloths to remove dirt and oil.

Leather care:
As with any natural material, leather will age with wear, becoming soft and pliable. It is a strong and durable material, but overexposure to extreme moisture or chemicals from items such as fragrances, aerosols, and deodorants will weaken the leather. It is recommended to remove the necklace before bathing, swimming, or sleeping.

Custom Orders:
Any special orders requiring customizing such as a specific size require a 2 week lead time (sometimes much less... convo me if you need it fast) before shipment unless otherwise specified in the product description. Please don’t hesitate to convo me for rush deliveries. Please note that all custom orders are non-returnable and non-refundable.

Ring Size:
US standard. Please have your ring size measured by a professional jeweler. Guessing and using a tape measure do not work.
