I bought this ring about a year ago and was in love with it at first, it was so beautiful. But like the other reviews the beauty did not last. The stone started to look dull and the sterling silver turned tarnished very fast. I tried a lot of cleaners and nothing brought the color back. I finally took it to a jewelry store and had them cat it in gold and clean the stone it looks amazing again! I would have expected more from a ring of it's price.
Intricate Detailed ring
As someone who has bought this ring, I had the same issue as the first reviewer. It was really breathtaking when I received it. Its not that the sterling silver tarnished, it just loses its shine VERY quickly which makes the ring look like something inexpensive. And the stone loses all shine so fast. Because of how the stone is encased in the ring, it is VERY difficult to clean. Even with cleaners and scrubs, it just never gets back to it original charm
Did NOT buy this . . .
. . . but felt I had to respond to what I just read from the only reviewer. ALL sterling tarnishes quickly if you do not clean it often! The stone is a citrine, a 7 out of 10 on the MOHS scale of hardness, nothing could have changed about it except it getting dirty. Make a paste out of baking soda and water to brush this with! This is a gorgeous, unique ring!
Lovely at first but....
This ring was absolutely gorgeous when I first received it from freepeople. Super shiny stone and the sterling silver was so bright and beautiful. So crisp the combination of the stone and silver. At least for the ring I got, the stone was darker in real life than in the pictures but still very nice. However, after wearing it for about two weeks, the sterling silver lost all its luster making the ring appear very cheap. On top of that, the stone also lost its brilliance and just appeared like a super dull stone you would find on jewelry from the drugstore (if even that) For the price of this ring, I would expect a product of much higher quality
