"I never like to see my wife disappointed so I tried to make her a bracelet of my own design, and she loved it!"
"My name is Agung Pribadi, but relatives and friends know me better as 'Denny.' I was born in 1962 in East Java and lived there until I graduated from high school. In 1983, I continued my studies at the university level and a few years later I decided to make my own journey in art and spirituality.
"I have lived in Bali since 1998, and I have spent my life in arts, spiritualism, and some social works. I design for interiors – masks, silk batik, and even stationary items. However, something happened in 1994 that led me to learn more about silver jewelry. I bought a bracelet from a boutique as birthday present for my wife. Unfortunately, after three months the bracelet was broken. I never like to see my wife disappointed so I tried to make her a bracelet of my own design, and she loved it!
"Since that day I have made more designs as presents for family and friends. In 1998, I started to work more seriously in producing silver jewelry. My basic design seeks balance and simplicity, and sometimes I like to create opposite mirror images."
Your jewelry is elegant and sophisticated. They are beautiful to wear and to give as gifts.
Mr Pribadi, I bought a necklace for my mother from you last year as a Christmas gift. I was very very happy with my purchase and my mother (who is very picky) to this day wears your necklace very often & receives many compliments. Your craftsmanship is exquisite! Even the packaging was a work of art. Thank you for sharing your talent!! Linda Clermont
I ordered an onyx ring from Agung Pribadi and it is absolutely stunning! His workmanship is exquisite and the ring is exactly what I love: simple and elegant. He's at the top of my ""favorite artists"" list and I cannot wait to see his new designes. I will be buying much more from him in the future.
Thank you for this wonderful jewelry that is beautiful and has a great feel to it when you wear it! I have the Mystical Cat ring and the Two Black cat earrings. Would you consider making the earring cat design into a necklace? I love the silver face of those cats and the loopy tail at the bottom. Also the Cobra ring is exceptional as it has a really great textured and smooth feel when you wear it. Thank you!
As a new shopper to Novica I wasn't sure what to expect but I received a ring today that I ordered and I LOVE it. It is beautiful! The quality exceeded my expectations! I am so happy with the service of Novica but most of all, the quality of the product. Agung said he started making jewelry by wanting to please his wife. I love the thought and it was my husband who gave me the gift of Novica by which to find my ring! It made ME happy. Giving certificates from Novica will be in my bag of favorites for those I want to gift because this is the best gift I have had in a long time. Time spent wandering through all the different things offered - it is simply stunning to see! Agung Pribadi is a gifted artisan - I will spread the word I promise!!
I received the Blue topaz cocktail ring, 'Together' this morning and i could not be more happy. Beautiful doesn't do justice to how fantastic this ring looks. I adore unique and interesting jewelry and this is at the top of the best purchases i have ever made. Thank you to the artist it is truly an amazing piece.
I have had my ""bubbles"" ring for over a year and a half. I get compliments every time I wear it, every where I go. I am so pleased with the workmanship and appreciate the quality and time spent on my piece. I look forward to many years ahead with it. I would hope in the future you would sign your pieces, you deserve the credit!! Kindly, Shannon
Not long ago I ordered your beautifully-designed ring ""Thunder."" I wanted something special for my son's birthday. The unique, elegant style was awesome and I knew my son would like it. I was wrong...he LOVED it!
I love your designs. I have a blue topaz wrap ring of yours that gets me complimnts each time I wear it. It is very unique and exquisite.
I just want to thank you for the beautiful work done on the ring I purchased from you. I am very satisfy with my product and wish you all the best with your jewelry very beautiful pieces keep up the good work...... Thank you Marla New York, USA
Received my beautiful cat bracelet!! I have worn it everyday since I received it.......you wouldn't believe how many compliments I have had. Then, when a few have asked to have a closer look and realized the bracelet was made up of cats....WOW!! a real winner!! Thank you so much! Susie
I received my Silver Minnows anklet and was impressed with it's beauty and craftsmanship. This is my first Novica item. I ordered the anklet on a Wednesday, with the upgraded shipping, and it was delivered on the following Monday. The anklet is very solid, the links and individual pieces aren't in any way thin or flimsy. The detail and quality is equal to items I've received from Tiffany. I've received many compliments and haven't taken my anklet off since it arrived. I had shopped at many local places for a silver anklet, as well as some on-line shops, and was unable to find something that met my needs for uniqueness and high quality. This anklet has surpassed my expectations. I'll definitely order from Agung Pribadi in the future. Thank you to Mr. Pribadi for making such a beautiful product!
Dear Agung, I really enjoy every item I receive from in my mail. The onyx ""Kittie Cats"" rigns and earrings are so gracious and unique. Thank you very much. You're very talented artist!!! Best regards,
Dear Mr. Pribadi, The turtle anklet bracelet you made is PRECIOUS!! I am giving it to a friend of mine who is Native American, and belongs to the Turtle Clan. She will love it! Your wife is very, very fortunate to have a husband who likes to make his wife happy -- and how wonderful that the rest of us benefit from you gifts! Many, many thanks, Katherine Donovan Charleston, South Carolina, USA
My boyfriend and I wanted to get engagement rings. We looked all over the place and were pricing jewelry we didn't like all that much at $500 per ring. We didn't realize how hard it would be to find elegant designs in men's rings! Then we found Agung Pribadi on Novica and fell in love with his work. All his work is beautiful but the ring we chose was 'Thunder.' Clean, simple, powerful, beautiful - we knew these rings were perfect for us.
Agung, I have purchased several of your pieces previously and have loved them all. The onyx ring, Harmony, is no exception. I love the size and simplicity of the ring and feel very ""special"" when I wear it. I apologize for not writing a testimonial before as you are a very dedicated and talented artist. Thank you.
I purchased the Carnelian ring, 'Courage' and the ring ""Look at me"". Both arrived beautifully packaged in the jewelry boxes. The ring ""courage"" is a solid, statement ring while the the ring ""look at me"" is a very striking design .Both are very accurately depicted in the pictures and I will really enjoy wearing them.
Though it was a year ago I bought His ""Your Heart and Mine' necklace, I still remember the expression on his face. He loved it and I couldn't have found it anywhere else. His work is genuine and unique. :)
The gold & garnet earrings that I purchased are lovely. I spent a good deal of time looking at earrings, and chose these for their beauty and uniqueness. The wrapping is outstanding, too.
For my Birthday, I bought myself the Beautiful, Silver and Turquoise Ring (Intertwined) I had had it on my wish list for a couple of weeks along with a few other items, but I kept going back to that ring and finally decided on it....I could not be happier, it is even more beautiful in person, then in the picture........Thank you for making my birthday present special!
Thank you so much for the blue topaz ""Together"" ring. It is even more beautiful in person and elicits compliments whenever I wear it. Agung's work is so graceful and artistic, and I thank him for such a comfortable yet sexy piece of jewelry!
I recently purchased the Garden Party Necklace and Earrings and I just love them. The design is a little bigger than I anticipated but the green of the agate is very beautiful. This set is aptly named. Definitely something that one would wear to a party where they wanted to be noticed. It is a very beautiful set and I will enjoy it for many years to come!
I purchased the onyx ring, 'Revelation' from this artist and I am extremely pleased! The ring is very unique and even more beautiful than the photo! It has been several months since I made the purchase and the ring is as shiny and gorgeous as the first day I've worn it! I still get many compliments every time I wear it! Thank you very much for a wonderful piece of jewelry!!!
I've just receive the shipment from this artist...its all wonderful and so lovely...thanks novica and Agung...i hope to buy soon from you :)
dear agung - i ordered 2 peridot rings from you. one was called ""Waiting"" & the other ""Shimmering Fruit"". upon seeing the rings for the first time i thought a moment & decided my niece may get the 2 rings, or her aunt who fell in love with ""waiting"" thought her niece may get only 1 of the rings. she's only 8 years old so i have sometime to decide. both rings are gorgeous with one more on the simpler side & the other having a little more glitz to it. but what surprises me most of all is my attraction to ""waiting"" to begin with as i usually tend to go for the blues, pinks, & purple stones. i just want you to know you do work to be proud of & someday my niece will have atleast one of your peridot rings. i thank-you for your imagination to think of the design & your workmanship to make it a reality for many to enjoy! sincerely - marge f. New Jersey,USA
Absolutely gorgeous, I bought the DAISY Blue Topaz Pendant Silver CHOKER NECKLACE, I'm thrilled to own such a lovely piece of Jewelery, everyone comments on it when I wear it! I've also order the 3 comet earrings, which I'm sure will be just as beautiful - thank you so much.
I recently purchased the Topaz earrings, 'Bubbly Blue' and matching Blue topaz choker, 'Daisy Delight'. Truly beautiful pieces of jewelry. Thank you.
UT, United States
I bought the Men's Onyx Ring ""Thunder"". It is absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to give it to my significant other. It has symbolic meaning to us and will perfectly suit the wearer. Thank You!
Geneva / Switzerland
I just received this magnificent ""sugar candy"" necklace. The delivery was really fast and is was beautifully enclosed in a box, with a postcard. I just love it! I enjoy Novica and its concept. I will certainly order again. Thank you very much.
The anklet has a clever design, is well wrought, has a nice weight of silver. Will give youthful flair to a bare ankle.
I absolutely adore my ""one of a kind"" necklace/earing set!! It's so beautiful & will be something I'll treasure for years to come! I highly recommend this Artist! Thank you so very much! **Peace & Light**
Newark, DE 19702 USA
Hello from Delaware, USA! I was taken back when I opened the package from Novica and saw how everything was gift wrapped and packed...even down to the little handmade flowers. But I must say when I saw the ""Passion"" earrings, then opened the matching ring box and put the ring on my finger, I felt beautiful. The quality in workmanship of the jewelry I received far exceeds my expectations as a new customer. Thank you Agung and everyone at Novica.
St. Petersburg, FL USA
I just received the rings I ordered from the Bali & Java artist Agung Pribadi and am very pleased with both of them. The designs & stones of the amethyst ring ""Tulips"" & blue topaz ring ""Celestial Trinity"" are beautiful and I'm looking forward to wearing them for many years to come.
Just received my Topaz Ring. Each stone will remind me of the time I have spent with my Husband. The Ring is so beautiful. The way wach stone just moves around is so different. You did a beautiful job. I am very happy with my purchase. I hope it will bring me some Tranqulity, and serenity. But just the name of the Ring means very much to me. Thank you Rose Marie
I received my turquoise necklace a week ago. It was stunningly beautiful. It'll be my all time favorite. What a talent to make such beautiful things.
My ""black lace"" necklace is beautiful. The best thing is that it matches with pretty much everything in my wardrobe. Thanks for your great jewelry.
Thank you very much, I enjoyed the dancing swan - really delicate and individual earrings
I love this anklet. I spent hours online looking for something that I could wear often without worrying that it would fall apart. I am thrilled to have found Novica and Agung Pribadi. The anklet is beautiful, generous in size and comfortable. I showed it to a friend of mine who is a successful and talented silver jewlery artist and she wanted to know right away where I got it..*chuckle* I'm definiteley going to be a return customer.

I have just received my onyx chocker and I love it. The workmanship is great. I will be buying from Mr. Pribadi again. Thanks
Black Mountain, NC USA
I ordered the Garnet Passion ring and I LOVE it! The ring arrived in about a week, packaged in a lovely ring box. It is exactly what I wanted and is the prettiest birthstone ring I have ever worn. It also means a lot to know that it was handcrafted by a special person halfway around the world from me. I certainly appreciate National Geographic for sponsoring Novica so that we may be introduced to artisans outside of the United States. Thank you, Agung Pribadi, for your beautiful work.
Please make a few in size 8 again. your work was beautifully made. I love my ring so does everyone else. Also it was beautifully packed, I have the flower you send as a gift and the box the ring came in was a work of art. Thank You, Elizabeth Martinez
I've just received the Mysterious Cat earrings and have promptly ordered another pair for a friend. I don't usually care for jewelry in animal shapes, but these are both beautiful and fun, and even though they are cats, they don't ""scream"" cat! The workmanship is lovely. I am completely happy. Thank you, Agung! I have several other items on order from you, and I am very excited about that.
Absolutely beautiful jewelry. I am so glad I discovered Agung's work. Keep creating!
Gilbert, Arizona, USA
I saw the ""Joined by Love"" ring and had to buy it. It was my Christmas present to myself and it makes me smile every time I put it on. The ring is wonderful; exactly like the photo. And I am keeping the lovely ring box it came in. Thank You!
I purchased the ""Dark Mirror"" for my wife and she absolutely loved it! Excenllent work!
Daytona Beach FL USA
I received my husband""s Christmas present today a Dark Mirror Ring and its beautiful, I know he will love it. Very impressed on how fast I received it.
I have just received a silver cross pendant on a choker and I am delighted with the quality, balance, craftmanship and style. I have had a long search for just the right style and found it in Agung Pribadi's hands. His designs are just beautiful. Speed of delivery was impressive too.
Absolutely beautiful, top quality.
Hilo, Hawaii, USA
Solid, simple silver ring with a HUGE red carnelian cabochon. The size and clarity of this piece are breathtaking!
Your necklace with a dragonfly is absolutely perfect and fabulous. It is a great work.
Towson/ MD/ USA
Thank you so much for the item, the photographs really do not it any justic - it was much more beautiful than I had envisaged. My friend loved the gift - in fact she was awestruck by the craftsmanship and the sheer elegance of the bracelet. Thank you once again
The Fish Bones earrings arrived today and they are beautiful. My wife will be thrilled with them.
I recently purchased Pribadi's Innner Peace bracelet. It is beautiful and of high quality. I plan to wear it daily, and focus on inner peace...
Duncan, SC, USA
Not only did I receive my ring (Constellation) in only 2 days, it is also a beautiful piece of jewelry. I had searched for a peridot ring that expressed my personality for years and only found it after discovering Agung Pribadi's work on Novica.com. I will be ordering more of his creations in the future. This ring is impressive in it's size and quality. I could not have been happier!
Thank You Agung The Carnelian Necklace ""Fruits of life"" is so beautiful. I had never heard of this stone before. It is a pleasure to own such a beautiful piece of jewellary and I will be proud to wear it.
New Albany, Indiana, USA
That is the most beautiful gift-wrap I have ever seen. The paper flower on top was a wonderful touch, and the way the necklace was wrapped 3 times around the little pillow inside made openning the box like magic. The necklace is much more delicate and beautiful than I thought it would be. The picture on the website does not do it justice. I am enchanted by your designs and look forward to purchasing a few things for myself in the next year. Thank you for the obvious love and care you put into your work.
I forgot to mention that the earrings I purchased were ""Balinese Blossom"".
I LOVE these earrings. They are contemporary and extremely unique. It's by far my favorite pair of earrings. THANK GOD I PURCHASED THE LAST PAIR!!!
Peabody, MA, USA
Mr. Pribadi's creations are beautifully crafted. I now own several of his designs & am complimented on them whever I wear them. This agate necklace is a stand out in any crowd. My first one was damaged in transit to me. I couldn't believe that I received a replacement from Novica before I'd even had the chance to mail the original back to them. Amazing artists with an equally supportive champion in Novica. Mr. Pribadi, there will be more of your glorious creations in my collection in the future. Thank you.
Milwaukee WI USA
Received Garden Party earrings today & I am ready for a party! These earrings ARE truly works of art! Large but not heavy; fantastic color; beautiful crafts-manship. I am very particular as to the jewelry I wear, it has to be well made & these earrings are all that & more! Thank you, I will enjoy owning them. (Are there going to be other pieces made to match?) i
Peabody, MA, USA
My amethyst ""tulip"" ring is more beautiful than I could have imagined. It was delivered to where I work. I am the only female employee in my area. The men I work with were asking where I purchased it from. They have never showed an interest in jewelry in the 15 years I've been there! THAT in itself is a testament to how lovely it is. Mr. Pribadi, thank you.
I just gave a pair of gorgeous garnet earrings by Agung as a gift to someone who is very picking about her earrings and she is thrilled. They are perfectly crafted, lightweight, and balanced. This artist is very talented as a craftsman and a designer. I'll be back!
Alexandria, VA, USA
I love jewelry which is big and intricate. I do not tend to wear things that could be described as delicate, which this certainly is. But after seeing it on the website, it stuck in my head for days and I finally ordered it. There is something so beautiful and striking about it, from the delicately spiraling band to the gorgeous deep color of the topaz (which is a healthy size - about the size of a large-ish pea), it's a new favorite of mine and is even more beautiful than the photographs could possibly show. Thank you so much, it's stunning.
I loved the necklaces I purchased from this artist. They were even more beautiful than pictured.
I just received my mint leaves anklet and couldn't be happier! It's beautiful simple design is stunning. The picture on the website does not do the piece justice. It is very solid and well made. Thank you!
You didn't disappoint my wife either. She loves your Blue Tower blue topaz earrings. And, blue topaz is her birthstone. You made me a hero at home.
Ortonville, Michigan, USA
This is a beautiful ring! The workmanship is very beautiful. The ring is substantial and solid and the design is attractive and unusual. The photograph, while good, doesn't do it justice. I enjoyed the attractive packaging as well. I have included NOVICA on my favorites list and visit it often.
I just received my second piece of jewelry through this site and again, I am so pleased with the beauty and quality-time put into it. From Agung, I ordered the mint leaves ankle bracelet and it is absolutely gorgeous. I am awaiting a third piece of jewelry through Novica and anticipate many more orders to be placed! Thank you, Novica, for giving us the opportunity to purchase these wonderfully beautiful pieces of art.
I recently received my ""Shimmering Fruit"" ring by Agung Pribadi. It is exquisite in both design and workmanship and I am very happy with it. The lovely box was a nice bonus. Purchasing through the Novica website was a pleasure and the service was great. It is an excellent showcase for talented artisans. Thank you Agung Pribadi and Novica.
I ordered ""World Peace, Hand In Hand"" with the carnelian stone and I absolutely love it! It is so striking and I can feel the love it was created with. I am proud to wear it!
My new necklace,""mysterious cat"", by Mr. Pribadi is both witty and elegant. The silverwork is meticulously well done. Thank you so much, EW
I just received my Wings of Peace anklet - it is truly beautiful. I just found Novica and I will be ""visiting"" again! Thank you!
I ordered the Turquoise choker ""Blue Dragonfly"" and I'm very impressed with the quality and design of the piece! It's simply divine! It is a gift for my daughter and I know she is going to love it!
Novi, MI 48377
I received my first of Mr. Pribadi's products just yesterday and it is absolutely beautiful. I couldn't be happier with the purchase or with the service I received. I'll definately buy from him again.
Thank you for the beautiful earings, they are magnifiscent stones. Our daughter will be delighted when she opens them on christmas day
Cranston, RI, USA
Dear Agung: Your work is absolutely amazing! The earrings are more beautiful than I imagined. The dedication to the perfection in your craft, the beautiful hand-made box, the rose adornment it was wrapped in, and the personalized postcard is something I rarely see in the merchandizing in the US. I will wear your art with pride, and look forward to purchasing more of your items in the future! Thank you, Paula Paquette
I marvel at your craftmanship of my ""Mint Leaves"" anklet that I just received. It is absolutely beautiful. You definitely were ""making your own journey"" when you designed this. It's one of a kind. I feel so blessed to be able to wear your work. And, I look forward to purchasing more! Thank you and God bless.
San Leandro, Ca. U.S.A.
I can not find the words to say how beautiful my Amerhyst ring is. When I opened the very beautiful box & saw THE RING, my heart soared with joy & amazement & with the beauty & perfection I was seeing . I could barley catch my breath from the sight of such workmanship. When I slipped it on my finger it was a perfect fit.

I am so happy about the necklace I purchased from Agung Pribadi, it is beautiful!!!! The packaging is beautiful and the personal note on the postcard from Bali is wonderful.

Sincerely, Molly Wight
Palm Beach Gardens, FL, USA
I just received my Dragonfly necklace and it is more beautiful and elegant in person than it appears on the website. It is absolutely gorgeous. The packaging was exqusite and showed great attention to small details. The little gifts inside, which included a postcard from Bali with greetings in both languages, were unexpected bonuses. I will definitely purchase more of Agung's work in the future. Thank you so much!
