Paola Valentini Sterling Pear Shaped Gemstone Ring
Stunning mint green coloration
This is my first amazonite piece and it truly has a beautiful coloration. This will not be my last piece of this gemstone. The green is similar in hue to that of green quartz but with an opaque instead of clear color. The sterling presence is bright, shiny, and indeed has a large presence. Likely not a ring for the timid person; but it is a statement ring for those who like/prefer a larger ring. This wll be a great simmer ring to blend with all the pastel colors but would be equally beautiful with the darker colors of fall and winter.
Pretty ring, but I expected more
I returned this ring because it was uncomfortable to wear, because of the price I expected that the inside of the ring would be covered/finished on the inside. I also expected that the tip of the stone would be set down into the silver setting, instead there was a sharp raised point which snagged on everything. I expected more and was disappointed.
I really love this ring. The color is a beautiful azure green& remarkably soothing. I only gave it 4 stars becuz it's bigger than I would have expected & possibly because I got it for my middle finger & it would make it appear bigger. I would highly recommend this .
I ordered this ring in onyx and loved the look and sleek design and was looking forward to receiving it. I received it today, opened the package and was disappointed to see that the sterling verification plate, that was supposed to be attached to the inside of the ring, was laying inside the package! Apparently it had been "glued" on...did not expect this to be so...very disappointed so back it goes!
Sleek and sexy!
I love the designers style. This ring is no exception, smooth and sleek.solid feel not cheap and flimsy.
The stone reminds me of larimar, a touch more green, but the same dreamy ethereal feel of the stone
PEAR-SHAPE STUNNING ONYX GEM ENCASED IN SILVER…
…I LOVE PAOLA’S SENSE OF STYLE and I again found it in her Sterling Pear Shaped Gemstone Ring with my choice of the Onyx centered, enfolded in the sumptuous silver framing. The glorious shining silver follows in a tapered shank, so alluring and absolutely comfortable in size nine on my middle or index digit. Paola’s artistic nature beams in all of her jewels, which cease to amaze me, and when the Onyx/Silver arrived, onto my finger it did fly within seconds. The generous amount of silver, the care in sculpting, and the master crafting is NEVER disappointing. I match this Onyx with Black Agate (Paola’s J156523), and a fine match ‘tis! The QVC write-up about Paola includes: “Internationally recognized jewelry designer Paola Valentini loves bringing ideas to life. …Named by the World Gold Council as one of today's most influential designers, Valentini has been designing pieces for leading global brands and conducting jewelry trend seminars. …With [Paola’s] QVC collection, she takes a multi-dimensional approach to stones and metals, creating unique, eclectic jewelry perfect for the modern woman… “. I thank you Paola for sharing your art and QVC for bringing Paola from Italy for our pleasure and love of this fine and graceful women! A positive stellar sixteen star rating I do assign.
Worth the price!
This ring is stunning. Very heavy in silver, beautiful in sculpture. I will definitely continue to purchase Paola Valentini jewelry because she does not disappoint in quality of craftmanship. I am sure this ring will last for years to come and I really enjoy all the compliments I receive when I wear it. Thanks QVC. Keep bringing forward jewelers with great taste and fine designs.
Sizing is WAY OFF
This ring size is way off from all other rings I have purchased on QVC. Order at least one size smaller than you would normally wear. I ordered a size 7 because I wanted to wear on my ring finger & it is even a little big for my middle finger. The stone is nice but this one is going back, just too too big.
A nice ring to look at; however, it was uncomfortable to wear. The underside of the ring is somewhat sharp and left red marks on my finger. It would be nice to have the underside covered. Sorry, it had to go back.
gorgeous design and color
I got the Amazonite and it is stunning. Paola always adds that sculptural touch to her pieces. And the color of the stone is a gorgeous color - I feel like I am looking down at greenish water. Just stunning.
Very Unique Ring
The ring is beautiful, but it does run big. Unfortunately, I wear about a size 5 1/2, and size 6 is my only option. I will keep the ring and wear it on my middle finger.
Beautiful ring but it runs large. Sending for a smaller size.
