Carolyn Pollack Aquamarine Sterling Ring
It's not a color that I like
Sorry Carolyn, I have ordered, throughout the years, many jewelry items and this is the first one to disappoint me. The color is ow so ugly. It's not blue, it's rather grey. I think it is a miss. Sent it back.
Beautiful in its simplicity
I purchased this ring for my Mom's 88th birthday present and she loved it. So glad it had prongs though. The last Aquamarine ring I purchase from Carolyn didn't have prongs and after a year the stone fell out. Very sorry to have that happen as I loved the ring! Prefer prongs to glue any day. :)
I looked at this ring with a jeweler's magnifier and the stone is beautiful! Flawless, smooth with great color. A great birthstone ring for me. It is comfortable to wear and the silver setting is lovely. I'm very pleased.
Disappointed, wanted to purchase it for a while.
I had this ring on my wish list, read reviews about it, so ordered it in one size smaller than usual. The disappointment was that after wearing it for a short time, my finger swelled and it was uncomfortable. Also, I noticed what looked like a fracture in the stone itself and there were one or two pit marks in the stone along the edge where the silver setting surrounded the stone on the face of the ring. The stone sure didn't look like the one pictured, which is a milky aqua. Aquamarine is my birthstone and so much wanted to like this ring, but I did not so sadly have returned it. Perhaps in the future will find another one that will work. Oh, all the rings I have by Carolyn Pollack have fit so far in whatever size I chose, this one, not so much. Strange, that one had to order a size smaller and then it didn't really work out.
Thist ring is a little bolder than what I usually wear, but the more I look at it the more I want to keep it. If you are looking for a dainty ring then this isn't it. However, it is very comfortable on the finger and I hardly know I'm wearing it (except for the fact that I have to keep admiring it!). I normally take about a 7 and 1/2, but a size seven fits just fine. Many of Carolyn's rings seem to run a tad large.
I absolutely love this ring. I used the print out sizing chart and originally ordered a size 8. Way to big! Then ordered a 7 and it was still to big. My size 6 is perfect and I know this will become my every day ring of choice. I don't know if I wasn't reading the sizing chart right or if it's not accurate. It was worth the returns to get the right size. The detail is beautiful and the profile sits snug to the finger. It doesn't sit to high. The stone has the subtle sparkle of an opal.
Perfect Aquamarine Ring
I have to agree with everything reviewer jillilyn wrote about this ring. I ordered two rings each in a different size as I wasn't sure if I would wear it on my middle or ring finger. Now I have a problem as I love both rings! One stone is more a greenish-blue; the other more deep aqua, so each is different but beautiful in its own way. Decisions. Decisions. This will be a difficult one.
Oh So Beautiful!!!
I am a March baby & with Aquamarine being my birthstone, and this was the most perfect birthday present EVER! I can't even begin to say how beautiful the ring is. Every single time I wear it, I get multiple compliments. It truly is a beauty & so feminine for a large ring. I just cannot say enough. The stone has a very organic look that makes it so unique. This has to be my most favorite piece of jewelry with the exception of my wedding rings. Even though I'm gushing about it, I hope I never see anyone else with "my" ring. But if you have a special person with a March birthday, this would be a great gift. I wear a 6 and it fit just a little large, but because of the width of the band, it rests really nice on my finger & very comfortable. If you need a half size, definitely go down.
Really enjoy wearing this ring
Stone in my ring is beautiful with an inner sparkle/glow. Sits a little higher than I thought it would, but it's not a problem. VERY comfortable. Agree that it runs a little large -- think it's due to the openness under the gallery. Love the silver work -- substantial, but not too much. A perfect middle or index finger ring.
IT IS A BEAUTIFUL RING AND THE COLOR OF THE STONE IS LOVELY BUT THE QUALITY OF THE STONE IS BAD. RETURNED THE FIRST ONE BECAUSE THERE WERE PITS AND A CRACK IN THE STONE. JUST RECEIVED THE REPLACEMENT AND THIS STONE IS EVEN WORSE THAN THE FIRST ONE -- SEVERAL CRACKS AND STILL HAS PITS. NOT GOING TO TRY A THIRD ONE. GIVING IT 2 STARS BECAUSE THE SILVERWORK AND MOUNTING IS VERY NICE.
It is lovely, but it's just too big-looking on my average-sized hand. It also sticks up high. I just didn't like it.
I was so excited that Carolyn was offering this ring in a size 5, which she NEVER does in her Sincerely SW collection. I think all designers should be required to offer a 5, same as fashion is required to offer XS and petites. Please consider. This ring was sized like a 6 though, so that was disappointing. Also very disappointing was the fact that the stone had cracks in it. I don't think they were inclusions, because you could feel the cracked area's when running the tip of finger over the top of the stone. Anyway, it's being sent back. :(
