Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Slightly different, Still beautiful
The stone in the ring I received (for Christmas from my husband) is perhaps lighter/milkier with a number of almost triangular darker contrasting patches of color, and is more greener turquoise colors than bluer, than I've seen in these pics and vids - but it is a gorgeous and comfortable ring.
It is the wonderful quality I've come to expect from Carolyn Pollack's made in America jewelry. I'm especially a fan of her rings, and I have many. The stone sits in the setting perfectly, all the tiny teeth haven't caught on anything, and the stone is buttery smooth and shiny. I've been wearing it since Christmas morning when I happily received it.
The sizing is generous, as is usual for CP rings, I've found. I have hundreds of Carolyn's rings, to be honest, so I guess I do know. I tend to buy a size down so the ring won't be too loose - anyway, plan for this ring to be about a half size smaller than normal/average. With some designer rings, it's the other way - too tight - so I will buy up a size. The thickness of the band and the style is a factor too, so that helps in the buying decision. Half sizes would be great, but since that isn't an option yet, go down in this case.
The amount of sterling silver in this ring is weighty enough, without being too thick and heavy. The detailing of the silverwork is interesting and pretty in person. I love the uniqueness and rarity of this stone. It's nice and big, without being too big for some. As for me, I'd love this stone larger and in an elongated oval shape - in a whopper of a big ring.
Thanks again and again, Carolyn and the Q, for bringing these amazing American made rings to those of us beyond Santa Fe New Mexico - from your doors, to ours!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dollchu Gray White Green?
I ordered two of these same rings in two different sizes for two different fingers.
One was mostly white with a pretty green design, but one whole side of the ring, about 1/4 strip of the stone, was gray. Even though this coloring is definitely poor quality larimar, I would have kept this ring if it didn't have the gray stripe along one side.
The second ring was more of a light dull grayish green, so again very poor quality larimar if you look up the standards for this stone.
I have tons of AW and CP pieces and I really stopped buying these lines because of the inconsistency in the stones. Years ago the quality of the opaque stones in these two lines had much higher quality and were much more consistent.
In the recent TV presentation on this ring, Carolyn emphasized the excellent quality of these larimar stones, so I don't think she could have seen the stones that I received, or many of those described in many of the reviews.
Disappointed! Think I'll check out the CP website because I really would like one of these rings.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Nice silover work but...
The silver is good but, the star stone is not. Returned it due to lack of blue color. The one I received was mostly white. Poor quality Laramar.

The stone in the ring I received does not look like this photo. The stone I got has stark white streaks, washed out in color, and also has a sea-foam blotch. The ring itself is very nice heavy silver. I would have loved it if the stone had looked like the one in the picture, the one the host modeled, or had on the desk in the presentation. Disappointed.

I am so disappointed in the color of this ring. I got the anemic sister ! It is almost completely white and very pale blue. It looks bleached out. The setting is the usual great quality from this company. I wanted the quality of the design and weight in the silver. But, this is the palest stone I have ever seen in Larimar.. My understanding is that it is the lesser quality stones that are so white with almost no blue. For this price it is going back. Trust me, I am trying to like it. But I was so let down when I opened the box.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RING LOVER Beautiful, Big & Bold
What can I say but WOW!! Received it today. Made well. Stone is Amazing. Mine isn't as amazing Caribbean Blue as the one in the photo, its more of a blue/gray/green color.....its got a GREAT Marble to it, with blues in all shades to even darker than the photo. I've had it on for a couple hours and Very Comfortable even though BIG. I first saw this stone on a trip to Aruba and fell in love with it. Now I have one of my own. Very Happy with it. Again, very well made and smooth, no sharp places on the setting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jgelaude quality and comfort
I absolutely loved this ring! It is so pretty and
I wear it with everything!! The quality if the ring
all that I would expect from QVC and I think anyone
would love this ring.
The only negative is that it is not as blue of blue as what
you see on TV. I would have liked even a little
more blue in the ring. There is a lot more white compared to the blue. But, I do
really love it!!!!!!!!
Great purchase, you will be excited to wear this ring!
