This ring is truly special! A sweet tangerine dream. I was a little apprehensive about ordering it since the description says the color can be variable. But the tv showing and online pictures and video convinced me to take the plunge. It arrived quickly and I was not dissapointed! The color was mid range as madeira citrines go. I would describe it as like a warm mellow glowing tangerine or apricot. There is alot of vitality to the stone, not to mention a highly coveted fiery flash. I did not find it to have the burnt orange or reddish to brownish tone which you will see in the more intensly colored madeira cirine.
The architecture of the ring is certainly of fine quality, the sterling is generous and solid and lovely to the detail, including the incorporation of the tiny delicate madiera citrine accents. It sits very comfortably and appropriately on the finger, well balanced without spinning or shifting around. I love the style of the design. It's refined but has kind of a southwestern look to it also. This ring is very unique but classic and very charming. Such a lovely and interesting piece of jewelry!!! Thank you oh so very much dear friends at JTV!!! :) :) :) You're wonderful to me!!!
