ARTISAN STORY: Goong worked very hard learning traditional embroidery, weaving and jewelry design. Her favorite was jewelry design because she loved how she could use native materials such as semi-precious stones and silver to create beautiful pieces. Goong worked hard honing this craft and she opened a small workshop where she could design and create silver jewelry. Goong’s dream of owning her own business so she could provide for her family was finally coming true.
The abalone ring is stamped 925 sterling silver as expected. The ring design is very pretty, one of the reasons I chose this ring. The stone is as advertised in size, 8 x 10 mm. However the stone was disappointing because the only place there was color is in the very center of the stone. I did not expect it to look exactly like the advertised photo in that each ring stone made will be different, but I did not expect the outer ring around the colored area to be a dull grey-green. This is disappointing. I rated the ring 5 stars anyway because of the setting. I purchased at the same time a set of earrings from the same Seller to match the ring. I am extremely satisfied with them.
Absolutely gorgeous!!! I am very, very satisfied with ny purchase. And it looks exactly like it dies in the picture. To the tee! Already got a lot if comments too:)
