By Admirer of Attention to Detail
Bought this ring in the spinel and garnet. Not as comfortable as other HG rings and not as high quality as I expected they would be (the same can be said about the entire collection), but they are okay. Worth buying if they go on sale.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like the design of the ring. The oxidization made the ring looked tarnished and cheap. It is also not comfortable to wear. I decided to keep it only because I did not have black spinel.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
really like the spinel its comfortable

they look like large black diamonds
This Black Spinel was a nice ring stone wise, but it was uncomfortable on the side of my fingers, so sadly I have returned it, all my other rings were exceptional, so I was disappointed when this one was not.

I have had many pieces of Himalayan gems before and they are all beautiful but this is the first time I have ever been disappointed in one. This ring looks old and beat up. If the black around the stones is supposed to be there, then I don't think that these pieces will appeal to Shopping Channel customers. It just doesn't look good and I will be returning this Christmas present.

Ordered the garnet ring and was very pleased with the quality of the stones. However, the silverwork was below standard...flimsy and tarnished in between the stone settings (not a method of oxidization that is visually appealing or well done). Noticed these rings were not made in Nepal. Perhaps that explains it.
My First Green Onyx Purchase
By Love the Shopping Channel

The stone is beautiful, flawless and a nice green. The silverwork is well done but on my finger the stones come down too far and pinch the fingers on either side making it uncomfortable. For that reason, I am returning this ring but will be watching for future green onyx offerings.
I loved it but....

This ring looked so pretty I ordered it in my birthstone, garnet. I have wanted a birthstone ring for some time and love and trust the Himalayan Gem line. Unfortunately, when I received it, the settings on the walls of the bezels in which the stones are set were oxidized to a dull grey colour. The prongs and the rest of the ring shone in lovely bright silver. Thinking something might be wrong, I called Himalayan Gems directly and was told this technique was intentional in order to give the ring an antique look. The rep also said it would be very difficult to polish between the bezels.I've never had a problem polishing between bezels from this or any other line of silver jewellery.So, with much regret, I returned the ring and earrings I had purchased to make it a set.I just couldn't get passed the fact that the ring looked unpolished not antique at all. In fact, the oxidization cheapened the overall look. Otherwise, I would have totally loved it.
