    First of many ..

    I brought this ring last month.. and I'm so happy I did . my first James Avery purchase I had my eye on this ring for a while .. so beautiful in person !!!. ring is not heavy,  light for everyday wear ' the butterfly wings are pointed a little high and gets caught on my clothes I suggested you take off ring when putting on and off clothes ,  this ring is so gorgeous.. I get so many compliments on it , Stands out lovely , I'm in LOVE with it , I clean it with a James Avery polish cloth to make it extra shine!! . if you're thinking about buying this ring , you will not be disappointed!!.

    I bought this ring this Saturday and the butterfly looks smaller than all the other mariposa rings my friends have so I was wondering what I should do

    I Love all things Butterfly

    This is my second James Avery Piece of jewelry.  It took some getting used to it sticks up a lot off my finger. I still get it caught on things and flip it under my hand when I put on long sleeves.  But I love it and get compliments. It runs a little small in ring size

    My boyfriend gave me this ring accompanied with a dozen roses. I was surprised because it was not a special occasion. He said he wanted to give me something special. He was right, it is a special and beautiful ring. He has changed so much with me in a good way. The butterfly goes thru a change, the metamorphosis change to become a beautiful thing. This ring symbolizes my boyfriends change. He has changed into a loving man! Te amo Silvi.

    You will get compliments!

    Got this ring a few years ago and it has held up pretty well even though I tend to nick it on things here and there. It is a solid, quality piece. I get compliments on it all the time, it is very unique and beautiful piece.

    Perfect ring

    I bought the Mariposa ring in both silve and gold many years ago.  I wear either one every day.  It is the most balanced ring I have ever had.  The butterfly stays on the top of my finger and doesn't slip around to the side or back.  I can't count the number of people who have positively commented about the ring and asked about the craftsman who created it.

    I am so happy!

    My boyfriend just surprised me with this ring and I am so happy that he did. I have wanted this for a few years now and finally got it. This is definitely a classic piece and I will treasure it forever.

    This is my most favorite JA piece of all the pieces I own. I constantly get compliments from perfect strangers even after years of being worn. Don't worry about the size of the ring, you get used to it and it is not uncomfortable in any way and it doesn't get caught on things. Must have JA piece.

    Beautiful, Unique Ring

    I had been wanting this ring for a while, and my boyfriend surprised me with it a few weeks ago after I was having a bad week. I love how dimensional it is on my hand. When my fingers move to type, it's almost as if the butterfly is about to take flight. It's very sturdy, antennae and all. As per their suggestion, order a half size up. I can't say enough about the quality. People have commented, "That must be a James Avery!" I smile and say it is.

    LOVE IT!!!

    I received this as a gift in gold from my DH. I love the design in this ring and the band detail. The only thing is, if you have small children, it is VERY SHARP on the wings. I don't get to wear this as much as I would love to because it scratches the baby. But later I will get much wear out of it. :)

    Beautiful Ring

    Bought this as a gift for my boyfriends mother. She never has expressed a wanting of anything at all except for this ring! So I just had to get it for her. This is such a neat ring! It is so well made and the design is executed flawlessly! JA has never failed me in terms of quality. This is ring is just beautifully done. You need to get it and hold it in your hand and look at the details on it. Bf's mom loves her ring and wears it just about every chance she gets!

    Beautiful Addition

    My mom bought this ring when she was in high school in the 70s and then passed it on to me when I was in high school. At that time it was retired so nobody had it but then shortly after they brought the design back and I started seeing people with it. It is a beautiful ring - one of my favorites. Every time I wear it I get compliments. I think because of the unique shape it really catches your eye. It is a little pricey but its worth every penny. I dont think you'll be disappointed!! Also, it does get caught on sweaters so just be careful. Very lovely ring indeed.

    Fabulous jewelry

    This is one of the best ring ever that I bought.!!(:
    I have more rings from "James Avery", but this is one of my fav.!!(;
    Everybody who don't have this ringalways ask me if the wing gets caught on something,and it doesn't for me just when I put on my sweater, so I take the ring off, so I can put on my sweater, and than put the ring back on my finger.
    I am trying to get the whole butterfly collection of this ring and the spring butterfly ring that I also have,and I'm almost done with the collection.!!(;
    So I hope you get this ring, and wish me good luck, and hope that I get the whole butterfly set.!!(;

    Meant to Be...

    I truly believe that the Mariposa ring was meant to be for my sorority! Our symbol is the butterfly & our flower is the red tulip!! When I first saw this ring on an older sister's hand, I KNEW I HAD to have it!! So for my birthday last year, I bought it and I couldn't be any happier!! It has yet to get caught onto anything & I always get compliments! I DEFINITELY recommend this purchase!

    I accidently cleaned it with jewelry cleaner & JA even fixed it!! love love LOVE this ring

    Ready to Take Flight!

    The beautiful sterling silver butterfly that sits atop this ring looks as though it may flit away! I just love it. but am a little afraid to wear it as everyday wear as the butterfly sits so high off the band I get it caught in things during my busy day and I am afraid of damaging it or tearing something up with it, but so far it has held up great. The quality is awesome and the sterling silver seems to be the best! I think this is my 9th James Avery purchase. My favorite place to buy jewelry that is heirloom quality.

    Very unique and stands

    I love my ring. I love that it sits above the band. It makes it look 3D like the butterfly might just fly off your band. Very cool. I would suggest anyone wanting this ring to get it.

    Gorgeous Ring!

    I bought this ring for myself in Summer 08 and I still wear it every single day! Even as a broke college student, I can say this ring was worth every penny. I'm a biology major and I believe that the butterfly is one of the ultimate symbols of life, which is why I chose this one as my first JA ring. Plus, it stands out.
    The only downside I've seen so far is that, I'm very clumsy and I move around a lot at work so this ring actually does get stuck/snagged. Miraculously, it looks the same as it did the first day I bought it. If you've been thinking about getting this ring, I do not suggest you wait much longer :)

    Great Gift!

    I got the Mariposa ring from my boyfriend, it is by far my favorite piece of James Avery Jewelry. I get compliments on the ring wherever I go. It is an awesome ring!

    How Gorgeous This Is In GOLD!!

    This ring is beautiful in sterling, but I have to say that when I purchased this in GOLD I found it to be absolutely stunning. I bought it for myself after teaching summer school each and every year! My little treat. I love the symbolism behind the butterfly as well. It can be religious, symbolic of new life, or self connected, as a symbolic of life's metamorphosis, which is why I made the deicision to purchase it. This ring is very solid and heavy. It has sort of a matte finish on the wings which contrast with the highly polished gold. It is an amazing piece and I feel like royalty everytime I wear it!

    Butterfly lover's ultimate

    My precious daughter-in-law knows of my love for butterflies and gave me this ring for Christmas. I couldn't believe it! Looks likw a real butterfly, wings spread, sitting on my finger. I love wearing it.

    My favorite ring!

    I've had this ring for a long time. When I first got it, I was hesitant because I thought it would get in the way of everything; get caught on everything; etc... just the opposite! I wear it as often as possible and was ecstatic when JA came out with the matching pendant. I get so many compliments on this ring!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

    I have been thinking about getting a unique and cute ring for a while. And this ring has it all. Size runs about a half to qtr size smaller. Very substantial and nice design.

    sister girl ring

    Ok so two of my besties have this ring and they have wanted me to get this ring forever. I have always wanted this ring but it was a bit steep for my college budget. Finally this early valentine’s day my boy friend got me this ring and I can’t stop admiring it on my hand. I love it!!!!Perfect fit and match and very comfortable. I wish I had gotten it sooner.

    Beautiful Butterfly Ring

    I absolutley love this ring! I get compliments on it almost daily due to it's uniqueness. I thought that the ring my be intrusive at first due to it's size but it has turned out to be a great ring. It doesn't get in the way and it is a classic. I bought this ring shortly after my Mother died in rememberance of her because she loved James Avery and wore it daily.

    Love this ring!

    I had this ring a few years ago and it was lost during some travels. I had to get it again because it is so pretty and I get the best compliments when wearing it. It captures attention and the fit is great. I like the thick band so that the ring does not move around all over the place as some heavier rings sometimes do.

    Dream Come True

    I've admired this ring for 10 years because of its striking beauty and its unusual theme. At last I was able to purchase the ring and love it. I've received many compliments and they always want to know where I purchased the ring.

    Very valued piece of jewelry!

    I have received numerous compliments about my Mariposa ring! Many people have told me that it is very unique, and that they've never seen a ring like this before. When I tell them that it's a James Avery ring, they tell me,"Well, no wonder why it is so pretty!!!!!!!
