Closeouts. Evoking the season of autumn, Big Sky Silver's Falling Leaf ring nestles a red tiger's eye stone in the curves of a brass leaf -- set in antiqued sterling silver that's textured to emulate nature.
Big Sky Silver artisans take their inspiration from nature to create wearable art as unique and passionate as your own love of the outdoors
Crafted in sterling silver with an antique patina and tarnish-resistant finish

The best thing about these rings for me is the nature theme, otherwise I would pass them by. Almost all of the stones are glued in, which worries me. I ordered several of these rings, and most of the stones are not high quality and lack luster/ color/ shine. I'll keep this one, knowing if the stone falls out that STP has a great return policy. Better yet, I might buy a prettier stone that fits and just glue it in with some jewelers glue! (= Better than NEW!)
The stones can be purchased through jewelry maker's supply sources, and tiger's eye (and other semi-precious stones) this size are inexpensive.
Considering this, the details in the ring alone make it well worth the STP price; I LOVE the brass leaf and the textures!
Be aware these are made in the "Big Sky" Country of CHINA (what did we expect?)

After leaving a five-star review a couple of days ago, I must add this comment. Today the tiger's eye stone fell out of the ring. It was only glued in, not held in with prongs. I'm terribly disappointed and, of course, it totally changes my opinion of my now-worthless, gem-less ring.

I've never bought jewelry before from STP, but was very pleased with this decorative little ring. The size was right, as was the description. The tip of the decorative leaf does snag gloves when putting them on or taking them off, but that's a minor consideration.
Cons: Leaf tip snags on gloves
Pros: Artistic, Attractive stone, Good Fit, Unique
