Unique ring but....
from Calgary, AB
I was very leary about buying this ring due to the comments of stones falling out. I did order the blue and green when they were marked down drastically. I love how striking the blue ring is and have worn it twice and it's still intact. The green ring went back as the stone is almost clear on the hand. Would love to purchase more of this style but am concerned about the poor workmanship with this brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

NICE FOR THE PRICE
By M loves to shop
I was a little underwhelmed when I got this ring. Bought the prasiolite (purple). I definitely don't think you could find a ring with these stones for this price.That being said,I don't find any element of wow in it. It's nice but not stunning. I wear it occasionally and have had some nice compliments on it.I would recommend this to a friend and include all the comments made here.

Stones fall out - poor quality
from Nova Scotia
I have purchased several pieces of Carol's jewelry and they are very lovely however, when there are small stones such as Spinels, I have lost stones on every piece I have bought. Also for being nickel free, the Evil Eye Pendant I purchased (which I just loved) the silver turned black and of course I lost one of the blue stones in the eye portion. I gave her jewelry a 2 only because they are very pretty, but the workmanship is very poor.

Teardrop spinel ring
I had previously purchased this ring in garnet and that stone was a nice deep red but obviously a heated, treated stone to achieve that depth of colour nonetheless I ordered another one in amyethst and back it went because the stone was not at all as it appears online where it appears a deep dark purple colour, mine was so pale that the colour was washed out by the intense black of the surrounding spinel stones. I suppose this design was a nice idea on paper but in reality the center stones would have had to have been much more dramatic in order to overcome the darkness of the spinel. Nice in the garnet, the other stones are too pale in quality to provide the necessary contrast.

Gemstone & Black Spinel Firenze ;-(
from Orleans, ON
This ring is quite breathtaking. I checked it carefully upon receipt and all was good. Wore it once to a wedding (around the 30 day return period) and next day noticed 2 spinel stones were gone!!!! Very upsetting - I won't buy anything that has small stones on the sides of a ring again. I gave it two stars mainly for the beautiful main stone.

My Favorite Ring
from Kenora, Ontario
This is my favorite ring and would have been a hands down five star but it lost a spinel like another review stated. I contacted customer service hoping that I could order a replacement spinel through Carol Brodie and was told that she offers no warranty and that since my 30 days were over that I was out of luck and that perhaps I should bring it to a jeweller to see if they could fit it with a matching spinel. Disappointed all around in customer care. I was more than willing to PAY for a spinel to be set by my jeweller so that it would be the right fit and match. The least they could have done was put me in contact with Carol Brodie to see if they could help me. Been shopping with TSC forever, my engagement ring from 13 years ago was a TSC buy so this is just disappointing all around. If the ring goes to clearance I may purchase another for spare parts since I have no other choice if I want to keep my ring.

from Hamilton, Ont
Looked good on TV - like so many of other Brodie pieces - and was worried that I would be disappointed again. NOT. Am very happy to say that these rings are distinctive with the black spinel surrounding a good sized stone. And does that soinel ever sparkle. Very, very nice.
I got the garnet one, and it's a beautiful deep red colour. Love the black spinel too. I wear mine every day, and so far it's held up great to all my handwashing etc. I get tons of compliments on this piece!
By Miss Marquis
After ordering my Carol Brodie garnet & black spinel firenze sterling silver ring, I read some reviews of her other jewellery. Many people gave her jewellery bad reviews based on poor quality and some were not happy with their purchases at all. I, however, was very pleased with this ring. I opened the little black box and tried it on right away. It's lovely and delicate. I was concerned that the garnet might be too dark and not shiny, but it is a deep beautiful red that shines nicely.
