Rated 4 out of 5 by nikouli so cool...
This ring is so cool, I love it ! I got it in the abalone and what other reviewers have said is true. The color is not even close to the picture. However, it is still a very beautiful ring so I've kept it and enjoy wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by retired & happy BEST RING EVER
I love this ring - it is so cool - just a touch of wild/pirate but great colors and the size is prefect. I stays up on my hand and doesn't roll. I'm 60 years old and wear this with pride :)
Rated 2 out of 5 by AmandaVT Color not the same as photo
I purchased the abalone ring and had the same experiences as others. I wanted the vivid color as seen in the photo. The ring I received was almost 95% clear with just a hint of color. I knew I was taking a chance. I hoped to get lucky but didn't. Sending it back.

This "gemstone" was clear when I received it. It had a bit of color when I put it on. NOTHING LIKE THE PICTURE. Very Poor quality for the price. Returned it same day I received it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Judexs Talk About Disappointment....
The ring design is beautiful. It runs large for me....my problem is the only color they had in my size was abalone. As pictured, it's a greenish black. In person....it's a clear hunk of glass with a pale, pale greenish hue. It disappears....substantial, but clear. I will exchange for a darker color as it seems there are more in stock in my size now and decide if it's worth it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Gothkitty Shockingly shoddy product
I ordered this ring. When I got it, it was a disaster. There were black and red carver's marks all over it. I sent it back and got another. This one was fine and I loved the ring and wore it often. However one day I looked at my hand and the stone was gone. I had not bumped it, there were no marks on the settings, nor were any bent. The stone had just fallen out. I saw the ring was still available and ordered another. This one was shocking. The carver had obviously chipped off the jaw of the skull. They picked a stone at least five shades lighter , badly carved it, and looked like they glued it on. It was crooked with jagged edges of quartz. I sent it back. I received a replacement. On this one the stone was only partially polished with rough and jagged places all over. In addition where the bottom setting was attached the stone was cracked. Sending it back tomorrow. Obviously Bixby has quality control problems. And I got the pleasure of paying for shipping both ways three times for defective merchandise. I will never buy another piece of jewelry from her again.
