I have the green Amethyst ring, which is a large stone, but very comfortable. It is cut beautifully, and I have had many compliments on the ring. I have the matching earrings and pendant. It is such a soft color, and can be worn with any color clothing that you wear.
The quality is wonderful, and you cannot beat the price or selection any place else.
