Hidalgo Micropave Lab-Created Gemstone Guard Ring, Sterling
I was hesitant about ordering this from the reviews that said their ring wasn't sterling silver...and turns out...my rings were both plated with black rhodium...because of this..the stones looked BLACK...i was really upset and will mail them back tomorrow...requesting to exchange ONLY if they will re-send the sapphire rings in Sterling silver like the description mentions... Waste of money on shipping!!
Took a chance on the sapphire version of this ring despite some of the reviews of black or grey plating. Ordered two to stack, sure enough nasty gunmetal black plating. It made the stones look black, but i didn't want black, I wanted BLUE!. Wore them to work to see if they would grow on me...the plating started scratching off before the end of the day. Promptly returned these the same day. Enough with the cheap plating already!
LOVE - LOVE - LOVE THESE RINGS
I BOUGHT FOUR OF THESE RINGS IN THE BLUE SAPPHIRE AND THEY ARE EXCEPTIONAL - AS ARE ANY OF THE MICRO PAVE HIDALGO RINGS. I WEAR HIS ETERNITY BAND RINGS ON BOTH POINTER FINGERS AND THUMBS. THEY ARE EXTERMINELY GOOD SPARKLE FOR THEIR THIN PRESENSE - THEY ARE A BIT THINNER THAN THE OTHER MICRO PAVE 1/16 INCH ETERNITY BAND RINGS AND YES, YOU ONLY GET ONE FOR THAT PRICE. LIKE ANOTHER REVIEW I GOT THREE WITH BLACK RHODIUM AND ONE WITH THE SILVER. I WAS THINKING OF RETURNING IT, THEN I MIGHT JUST GET BACK THE SAME COLOR - IT WAS A SIZE SEVEN THAT WAS THE SILVER THE 2-8'S AND 1-9 WERE BLACK. THE RUBY IS MY NEXT PURCHASE - HOPE FOR ANY EASY PAY DAY AGAIN. IT WOULD BE FANTASTIC IF MR. HIDALGO WOULD DO EMERALD NEXT - AND WORK HIS WAY ALONG THE LINE OF GEMSTONE. SIMPLY STACKS ETERNITY BAND RINGS ARE VERY NICE - I HAVE A LOT OF THEM BUT THEY DO NOT HAVE THE DAZZLE OF MY HIDALGO. THANK YOU QVC FOR THIS LINE OF JEWELRY.
I love Hidalgo jewelry from QVC and was so excited to receive the simulated sapphire stack ring in the mail yesterday. Upon opening the package, I was disappointed to see a gunmetal colored metal on the band. Definitely not the sterling as described. I was hoping it would stack seamlessly with my other eternity bands. Product not as described and I will sadly send it back :-(
Have These in Both Colors!
I ordered 2 of the sapphire rings about 4 months ago and they are very lovely and enhance many of my rings. Mine are set in shiny sterling silver, and are not rhodium plated.
Just ordered the ruby rings a few weeks ago and they are even more gorgeous!! Love how they look with my other Hidalgo eternity bands (particularly the pink and yellow)!
Not as described
I was looking forward to receiving the sapphire version of this ring to stack with my other Hidalgo stack rings, as well as my other band rings. When I opened the box, I thought I had received the wrong ring. It looked like the black micropave ring. Upon further inspection, I realized that the ring had blue stones, but the metal is clearly black rodium plated. The description states the metal as polished silver, so that's want I expected. I feel that the black rodium makes the blue stones appear very dark, and it doesn't match well with the other stack rings that I have. I like darkened metal in some jewelry, but not in this ring. I'm sending it back.
Beutiful blue, but not black rhodium
I waited a long time for these. Love the ruby versions. The photos show set in silver, and what I received was black rhodium plating. Plan to keep and see if my jeweler can remove the plating.
OMG Love the sapp
Bought 2 to put with my wedding set it a prefect match. I need a set in emerald's would
look like a million bucks. please please make emerald's.
Perfect for Stacking
I bought this in the blue sapphire. Love it. It is petite--prefect for stacking, comfortable and the color is excellent--not too dark. I am contemplating coming back for the ruby.
Too thin !
I went with the blue sapphire and found it would have been more stunning and attractive if it was a bit thicker. Too thin, couldn't tell if the stones were sapphire unless the ring was brought up to your eye.
I love this ring.I ordered 2 and I wear them as guards with my wedding band.I get compliments every time I wear my Hidalgo rings and earrings.
great stack ring
I have the ruby and sapphire rings. They are very slender but look amazing with other stack rings. I would love to have this in emerald. The three together would be a knockout. It just adds that little extra touch of color.
