This is my first JAI piece and I really love it. It feels smooth on my finger and I love the sheen of the silver. Plus the eyes are beautiful and just feels really good on. I look forward to wearing it for many years to come!

I usually love JAI pieces, not this one so much. Yes, it is made well, but absolutely no oxidation on the ring as you see in the picture. It sort of all blends together without much definition. No where near the beauty I expected. Size 7 fit tightly.

For the most part, I like the Jai line and have many pieces of the couture line that I wear. This ring, which I had hoped to love, was a huge disappointment. Not only is it feather-light, but it's not comfortable on my hand. Although I know others love this ring, it's just not for me so I will be returning.

This ring is so much fun to wear! Absolutely love the face of the Koi. The detail of the scales is perfect. I ordered a size seven so I could wear on my index or middle finger and it fits perfectly. The weight is just right so it doesn't swing around. The eyes sparkle and the gold on the head is such a nice touch. It is shiny bright, so can't wait for it to wear some and get a bit of "character". I would buy the charm/ bracelet/necklace to match, but I'm going to enjoy the ring for now. Thank you Mr. Hardy, well done.

I have accumulated quite a collection of JAI jewelry and everything except one ring has been fabulous quality. In my opinion this little ring is a great deal for the price. It is not a large piece and even though I am not a particularly small person it still has presence on my hand. At first I thought a couple of the JAI rings were too small in stature but they are all so comfortable and well made and seem to be the ones I always reach for. Mine definitely has a gold accent on the top of the head and the blue topaz eyes sparkle. I agree that this particular piece is beautiful without oxidation. Fish are supposed to be shiny and sparkly creatures! The texture of the scales adds enough dimension and nothing else is needed.

I have small hands & this ring is perfect for my index finger. The detail is gorgeous & goes with everything. I love the eyes & the gold accent just adds enough to enhance the beauty of this ring.

This is my 4th JAI purchase, and I am still impressed with the quality and artistry of each piece! The Koi are my favorite thus far, and I seem to choose this ring almost everyday since it goes with everything and it feels comfortable wrapped around my finger. It fits true to size, and is so precious, I love to show it off!

& very John-Hardy-Worthy !
Neither the photos or video of this ring do it justice, in my view . . in fact, make it appear a bit garish & overly large. It is neither, which may become apparent if an actual presentation is ever made. They did flash it briefly during the last JH show but it appeared alternately a flash of undefined polished silver on the host's hand & overly klunky in the solo video shot.
In reality this little ring - though it's not really little at all but definitely not big & bold - is, in person, unexpectedly charming & shows itself as beautifully conceived & executed. While not heavily oxidized, some oxidation does give it definition in combination with the presence of the many little fish scales, which are uplifted from the body of the fish & appear to be individually applied, each sending a gleam of white light in different directions as the ring is rotated. And the little koi face is quite captivating - if some have given the JH crocos names, this little one looks open to that possibility as well - a sweet- faced koi it is & together with its nicely flared tail & pretty blue eyes, has a definite feminine air. ( there are times i swear she's smiling . . lol )
Best of all, it is so middle of the road in terms of size - just perfect really - that it can go anywhere, blends nicely with other JH pieces, including the croco station link bracelets, so that i find myself wearing it way more than i expected. It just works !
Love it, Recommend it & if you're looking for a little John Hardy friend to go nicely with Thai, Balinese or other such pieces, this little one will definitely do the trick . .
