Little Green Cloud
Color is gorgeous, lines are different and this ring is dressier to me.
I wear the pendant with the clear quartz necklace Carolyn once had
and the ring. My version of cowgirl dressy!! Absolutely adore this ring!!
Oh Fits the finger GREAT!!
Beautiful clear green
This is a lovely ring. I have the earrings and was so happy to get the ring. I have had it a while and wanted to write a review to recommend the purchase. The silver work is not skimpy at all and the ring makes a beautiful statement on the hand. Very feminine. Variscite of this quality is rare. Really pleased.
The only reason I am not giving this a 5 star rating is because Carolyn seemed to have "skimped" a little on the sterling which surrounds the stone and also on the sides (shank?). I gave this and the matching pendant to my wife for Christmas and she was quite pleased as she owns many, many, MANY of Carolyn's designs. She said, "This is beautiful and I love it, but the sterling doesn't seem quite as substantial as on some of my other pieces." After looking at her Mother of Pearl set and her Lapis Lazurli set, I saw what she meant. As long as my wife is happy, I am happy.
Love the ring, but it is a little loose...
I have never owned this stone and was excited to try it; the ring looked so gorgeous on the presentation. It looks wonderful on my hand and I have short fingers. However, I ordered my usual size 6 for my ring finger and this ring fits more like a 6 1/2. I can wear it on the middle finger of my left hand, which is slightly smaller. I'm pretty sure a 5 won't work, so I'm on the fence as to whether to keep it and deal with the spinning problem or return it, which I don't want to do as it is a truly beautiful ring....:(
Received ring and matching enhancer. The ring fits perfectly and runs true to size. The color is beautiful. I have wanted a variscite piece for some time, and this is perfect. The only down side to this ring is that it apparently was a return, as it arrived loose in the white drawstring bag (no plastic bag or tarnish inhibiting square) and was slightly tarnished. I like the ring however, and will keep it.
Beautiful metal work!
The stone is a gorgeous clear pistachio green as expected. Just lovely! But the sterling, in my opinion, is the real star of this piece. It is so highly polished and has such stunning scroll work... it really just glistens. I especially love the open scallop bezel. Great fit too. Winner!
It's a beautiful ring and i would recommend everyone to get this as a gift to someone that like jewelry
Utah Variscite is a beautiful color!
I love the color of this ring!! It's like a green version of Sleeping Beauty turquoise in its clarity of color. The ring is very comfortable and design is beautiful. I bought the matching pendant of this and the stone in it has the exact same color and clarity as the ring. I highly recommend it!!
Finally a Keeper
The color of the Variscite is beautiful. I like the scroll work around the ring. This fits nicely. I did have a problem getting use to the feel of the tapering at the back of the ring since I have never worn a ring with this design. I do think the price is high for the ring, but I wanted a piece of jewelry with Variscite, so I tried this piece. This is the first piece of Carolyn's jewelry that I like and will keep.
Pretty and bold
I liked the design and marquise shape stone on this ring when I saw it presented recently. This is a great stone! I like the lighter green variscite and you don't see it that often. It's a pretty mint green with some soft matrix. I also like larger, or bolder rings so I like the size, for my ring finger. From the sounds of other reviews and seeing this ring in person, there is no question that the silver is not what it used to be on Carolyn's pieces. The silver here however, while it is on the lightweight side, still has enough of a presence, and works for this lacy design. It is a very comfortable ring to wear and will be fine for me, especially in the summer when I tend to not wear heavier rings. Overall I am happy with the ring, and am glad I got it.
Lovely comfortable ring
I got mine today and it feels like I am wearing nothing on my finger. It did have a horizontal crack in the stone so I am sending it back to get another one.
