"I am proud to say I have won several awards for the originality and quality of my work, including one presented by the Governor of Bali."
"My name is Komang Widiana. I was born in the Gianyar province of Bali. My village is well known for the type of jewelry we design and create in gold and silver. As a child, my parents taught me how to make rings, necklaces, pendants, and earrings. Having graduated from secondary school, I was encouraged by my father to create my own designs.
"Making a single piece of beautiful jewelry requires a specific procedure. When working with silver, each step must be carried out individually; different motifs require different procedures.
"In 1985 I started working together with art shops in my village and thanks to them I was given a chance to join an exhibition designed for small handicraft industries. My work was well accepted and I continued to attend every year. I am proud to say I have won several awards for the originality and quality of my work, including one presented by the Governor of Bali, and two from the Industry Council of Bali."
Warm greetings from South Africa....I purchased the sterling silver ""Floral Rapture"" ring for my mum for her birthday together with 2 other items from the Novica website and she loved it!! The delivery as always was speedy and efficient and when I opened the package, I was enthralled. The craftmanship is excellent and the ring is elegant and stunningly beautiful, so much of attention to detail. I loved it myself:) I feel blessed to have been able to make this purchase....God blessings be with you in abundance and may you be Divinely inspired to create many more beautiful pieces....best wishes always, Aarthi:)
Beautiful Gorgeous WATER PALACE bracelet, I wish Bapak Komang also made a necklace to pair with it. I felt in love with the picture, after got it, I really love love it. It's my Favorite Bracelet of All. Bapak Komang, kapan Bapak bikin kalung yah? Saya orang Indo, tiap 2 taon sekali ke Bali, sekarang di US, kalau mau lihat show Bapak di mana yah di Bali? Terima Kasih. Rina
I purchased the ""Floral Rapture"" ring, looking for a large, bold band style ring. The open weave is very nice although when you wear it as much as I do, you may find some of the filigree pieced bending back and forth. On sizing, the ""meat"" of my finger runs the same width as my knuckles (vs. skinny fingers with big knuckles), and when you have such a wide band ring you may need to order a size up from normal. I intended to wear it on my index finger, but it is too snug, so I wear it on my middle finger. I've slipped it on my ring finger and it sits a little crooked (b/c the base of ring fingers is a bit uneven) and makes that finger look short and stubby, so I'd recommend buying it for your middle finger.
I now have two of Mr Widiana's pieces and I love them both. I love the technique he uses with the small circles and the little silver dollops on top... I purchased a very simple square-diamond pattern the first time and the second time a slightly more detailed and intricate pattern. I am very happy with both pieces. Very pretty and high quality work. Thanks, Mr Widiana ! Tami

Thank you for the incredible bracelets. They are even more beautiful than they look on the website. I am giving them as bridesmaids gifts and feel very lucky to have found such a great gift.
I just received an absolutely gorgeous bracelet in the mail today. It's a very dainty piece, and perfect for the person who's getting it as a birthday present.
Beauty in the purest form!!!I just love this bracelet!Thank You!

Komang Widiana is A TRUE ARTIST!! I received my 'Balinese Monarch'bracelet today and it is MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL in person. The intricate details along with the craftwork are evident of the love and care that Mr. Widiana puts into his work. The past few years of my life have been very difficult for me. I chose this bracelet as a gift to myself to symbolize the beginning of the newest chapter of my life. As soon as I put it on, I knew I made a great choice. Many thanks for a job well done!
Your rings are elegant in their clean simplicity. I have two that I wear with great pleasure. Thank you. Best wished to you and your family.

I just received my bracelet at my home and I must say, it is absolutely gorgeous! I am so pleased with the purchase and feel Mr. Widiana is an incredible jeweler. You will not be disappointed with your purchase!
I purchased the Floral Rapture ring from Komang Widiana and I am very pleased with it. It's more beautiful than it is in the photo. It has a very wide band, 3/4"", and it's exactly what I was looking for.
Remarkable beauty and quality...Thank you Novica for bringing talented artists to the world for everyone to know...looking forward to purchasing more jewelry very soon. My best to Komang Widiana and want his to know, I am so happy with my ring.
I ordered a bracelet and I LOVE IT!!!! It is beautifully crafted and made. Keep up the beautiful work.
The bracelet 'Sophisticate' is incredibly elegant. What a truly gorgeous design. Thank you, Novica, for bringing the work of artists like Mr. Widiana into my part of the world.
I just wanted to commend you on the lovely ring. Your work is simply beautiful and I couldn't be happier with the ordering/delivery process. I have a feeling I may become just a tiny bit spoiled on this site. Thank you.
I was very pleased with the quality of work. My bracelet is just beautiful and the package presentation was outstanding. All my thanks.
I received the bracelet ""Faith"". The workmanship is amazing and the box it came in is really nice. I'm very pleased with my purchase! Thank you :0)
A day before scheduled, a package from Indonesia arrived. In it was a charming box tied with a kind of raffia ribbon and rose bow, and in this was the ring designed by Komang Widiana. The jewelry design and craftsmanship is superb. It's beautiful proportions and modern design brushed with a bit of antiqueness is stunning. Thank you to Mr.Widiana for sharing his profound talent with us. And thank you Novica for bringing these wonderful artisans into our home.
Dearest Komang Widiana: I receive all three of the bracelets I ordered from you just a few days ago. My heart and soul sing of the beauty of your work. The bracelets are gifts and I will proudly let them know where I purchased them and from whom. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with the world. Sincerely, Lisa Ruch
I purchased the ""Spinning Orbs Bracelet"" and it is even more beautiful in person. The silver is the ""whitest"" I've ever seen and the workmanship is intricate. I'm very happy to own it.
The design of Komang Widiana's ""Destiny"" ring is modern and elegant.

I just received my florid Enchantment bracelet, and am compelled to write this! I knew I would like the bracelet I have many items from Novica and have been very happy with all! This bracelet is something so very special and beautiful. I could'nt stop staring at it. It's so intracate(almost like silver lace flowers) and the light catches the edges and it sparkles!! I can't wait to purchase some of your other bracelets on my wish list. Beautiful workmanship and design, I felt I had to tell you. And to anyone who reads this,the jewelry is much prettier in person!!!

Thank you for the beautiful earrings! I love that they look simple from far away, but as you look closer there is such a gorgeous, intricate design.

Greetings from Madrid! Your ring (Java Jive) is very nice!!! Thank you very much, Claudia
I received two braclets with Komang's unique designs. I wil always wear them to remind me of the beautiful land and warm people of Bali.
I just received my ""water palace"" bracelet from Komang Widiana. I was surprised that it is far more lovely and intricate than I could tell from the picture. It's definitely the most striking bracelet I've ever seen, and I'm thrilled to have it.

I recently received Komang's ""Hypnotize"" ring, and I was very happy with my purchase. The ring was even prettier in person, and it came beautifully boxed. & the handwritten postcard from the Novica staff in Indonesia was just another plus!!
Hello, I really admire your work. Now have three pieces. I just recieved your ring ""Floral Rapture"". The design is wonderful and the workmanship is beautiful. The ring is intricate and lovely. Thank you so much for your commitment to excellent product. Diana Swan
I recently received the exquisite lapis lazuli bracelet, 'Faith' and I am delighted with it. The ten cobalt blue ovals of lapis connected by intricately crafted silver links are lovely. The style of this bracelet is also versatile. Thank you again, I Komang Widiana, for your excellent workmanship and artistry.

I was very pleased with my earrings. The work on them are beautiful. Thank you so much.
Hello, I really like some of the jewelry you have made. I am wondering if you could possibly make another ring like ""Floral Ivy garden""? I wear a size 9 or a size 7. I have seen a lot of similar rings but yours was so much nicer. It was lovely quality. Thank You, Diana Swan

Sometimes you have to take the chance that what you see is what you will get in the mail...what I got was exactly what I hoped for and the quality of work and simple but classy design is perfect (plus it arrived less than one week after ordering it). When I am asked where I got it I tell people it's a Komang Widiana original I had shipped form Bali...how often do you hear that in a sentence? Thanks. Mark.

Thank you for the lovely work on the 'From a Distance' bracelet. I am very proud to be giving it to my son's future mother-in-law at our first meeting in April. It's perfect and the box surpassed all my expectations. The other surprise was how fast it arrived at my door. I only wish there was a matching ring!
Alexandria, VA U.S.A.
When I opened the beautifully decorated box I received from this artist, my eyes widened. I put on the ring and couldn't believe how spectacular it looked and felt on my finger. I will be wearing it everywhere I go and telling everyone from whom and where I purchased it.
I am so thrilled with the leather ""challenge"" ring I purchased for a friend's christmas gift. she collects silver rings and I know this is one that will stand out as being completely unique! I can't wait to give it to her!!!!
I purchased his ""belt"" ring for my mother for Christmas & I know she is going to love it! It arrived very quickly & packaged in a sweet little gift box. Wonderful quality. Very affordable as well.
What prompted me to submit this testimonial (somewhat late) is the fact that I am out here again looking for jewelry for my 16 year old daughter. I did a search for peridot and several beautiful rings popped up. As I was researching the artist, I realized that this is the same artist that I ordered a pair of Lapis lazuli earrings, (Mystique). from a few months ago. I figured it was time for a testimonial! I was amazed when I received my earrings. They were shipped in an adorable little padded box, wrapped in raffia, with an enclosed flower, postcard, and note from the artist. The wrappings along were exquisite and breathtaking! The earrings are exquisite and are truly a work of art. Obviously, I will purchase more products, as I am now looking for xmas gifts for my daughter!

I am very pleased with the design and simple beauty of the 'Chanlenge' ring. It can be difficult to find such a subtle piece of jewelry that still holds great elegance.
Last June I received my beautiful turquoise ring, ""Blue Inspiration."" The quality and artistry are superb. I like the graceful, flattering design. This ring seems just specially designed for my finger. I wear it as often as possible and am inspired by looking at it. Thank you, I Komang Widiana!
