"Bali has given me everything I desired and more... and I feel I should give something back in return...."
"Bali has given me everything I desired and more... and I feel I should give something back in return, therefore a percentage of the sale of my jewelry is donated directly to my favorite cause (the Healthy Mother Earth Foundation), which provides a healthy start for the hope of the world... the children."
"I went to India in 1988 'chasing after God' and while I was there I bought some gemstones. That was the beginning of many adventures, bringing me back to India in search of gemstones and trading my way with those throughout Southeast Asia!
"By about 1993 I was starting to tire of this lifestyle, so when I set off again in 1994 I had in mind to find a more nourishing place to use as a base. I traded my way through Bangkok then across the border into Burma, then I headed on to Singapore and Malaysia. But literally, once my foot touched ground in Bali, the island of the gods just opened up to me and sat me down to stay awhile and I've never looked back. Besides, my astrologer cast a relocation chart for me and confirmed what I felt, which was that for me, 'Bali is more home than home.'
"Naturally, after settling in Bali, the next step was to set stones in sterling silver - over the years my team and I have become rather adept at this. My passion is for gemstones and I have developed a talent for finding the best of them, wherever they may be, for example opals from Australia and fossilized mastodon from Siberia and Alaska. I get ammonites and ammolites from Morocco to Madagascar, while Brazil offers me everything, from tourmaline to every kind of quartz. The south seas that surround us lay pearls at my feet. I have traveled Java and Sumatra and found fossils of palm trees and 60 million year old fossilized coral that has turned into agate.
"What resonates within me is that while Bali and indeed all of Indonesia are helping me to realize my dreams, I have become an integral part in other people realizing theirs. We share all, in that we all do our work, whatever part of the team we play on – whatever we are responsible for, be it designer or silversmith. We are seeing our dreams come true be it continuing education, purchasing a motorbike, renovating the family home or welcoming a new child.
"Bali has given me everything I desired and more, including a wonderful son, who at eight years old is keen to be in the 'family business' (my son's own words!). So he 'works' most Saturday mornings weighing and preparing stones and even sketching designs – one of which has already become a piece in my collection.
"Bali is a place where dreams come true and the whole culture honors that. Bali is empowering for giving birth to ideas. I am grateful to this island paradise and the culture that nurtures creativity and crafts that makes this lifestyle possible. In that sense I feel I should give something back in return, therefore a percentage of the sale of my jewelry is donated directly to my favorite cause, which is the hope of the world... the children. My donations go to a charity that is very special to me and that provides a healthy start for the next generation -- the Healthy Mother Earth Foundation (Yayasan Bumi Sehat). Thank you to all!"

Caine's ring ""Never Apart"" is just stunning--very bold and powerful! Once again Novica delivers beautiful products at great prices with wonderful service! I will happily turn to Novica again, especially for more jewelry from Caine! Thank you!
Gorgeous necklace. The simplicity of the design perfectly highlights the beautiful blue pearl.
Thank you so much for the 'Loyal Love' ring. I am so happy with it that I couldn't be more pleased! It is absolutely beautiful. It is truly a work of art! Thanks again.
I ordered the Fairy Princess opal earrings and am very happy with them. They are beautiful. Even my husband like them. He is hard to please. Sincerely, Caroline White, an elementary school teacher.
THE RING I ORDERED IS EXCEPTIONAL. I LOVE IT AND I KNOW THAT WHEN EVERYONE SEE'S IT THEY'LL LOVE IT TOO
I bought an opal ring by this artist for a gift. The sleek, modern design is beautiful. The crafting of the ring is excellent. I really think I can find something at Novica to suit the personalities of everyone I know. Caine's lovely art is for anyone who appreciates sophisticated simplicity.
The necklace is just beautiful - I bought it as a gift and want to keep it myself! The craftsmanship and quality are excellent. I am so happy I found this company, with their amazing designers and artisans from all over the world. I love the idea of eliminating middlemen and letting the artists make more money. I look forward to many more purchases from NOVICA.
Hello, Caine. My name is Yana.I am the wife of Pedro.Today I have recieved the opal- ring ""INTENSITY"". I liked it very much. The work, the stone, all is the best !!!! Tnank you very much for you talent. Best regards ! Yana.
Gorgeous work...I love my opal ring and necklace. Caine has an eye for creating simplistic beauties. I had been searching endlessly for the perfect opal pieces, and am thrilled that these two pieces of jewelry do not disappoint.
Received the Serene Moon pendant today...it is beautiful. I purchased blue mabe earrings and a bracelet during a recent visit on Kona, Hawaii and this pendant matches perfectly. I'm certain I'll find something else of Caine's I can't live without. Thank you!
I just received the ring ""New Moon"" today. When I saw it I gasped...my breath taken away. Such elegance. The photo online does not do it full justice. A peice of sculpture that draws you into it, beautiful-beautiful art that I will be ever proud to wear. Thankyou.

NEW MOON RING - STUNNING - CAN YOU MAKE THE LADIES RINGS IN BIGGER SIZES SUCH AS 9 AND 10 ? THANK YOU SO MUCH .
The first time I viewed your ""Cascade"" choker, I fell in love with it. I received it today and am positively thrilled at how beautiful it truly is. The blue topaz stones are larger than I'd imagined and the blue opal is gorgeous! I would love to see Caine design matching earrings and a bracelet to go along with the choker. It's an amazing piece!

Dear Caine (May I call you Caine?)! It seems Bali gave you the gift of inspiration, and now I have a wonderful token of that gift, my lovely ""L"" pendant! Thank you so much for its delicate beauty! I always wear it because I really don't want to take it off... Maybe there is a link between you and me through the gentle, simplicity of my pendant! Sincerely, Lila W. Duckett, AKA: sunsoul
You create very beautiful things. Thank you.
I received your earrings, Harmony, today, and just love them! They are beautiful, more so than in the photograph. The opals are beautiful and have lots of fire. I will definitely be a repeat customer. Thank you!
I purchased Blue Ocean Dream choker for my sister and she couldn't stop looking at it. She was enchanted by the combination of colors and gems. Opal is her birthstone and it's easy to fall back on traditional opals -- but this one was special and unique for her. I have a feeling I'll be buying something for my sister-in-law next -- she admires my sister's gift and also has an opal birthstone.
Caine, I've just received the ""Intensity"" ring and I love it! I very much appreciate the elegance of your work. This is the 2nd item that I've purchased from you, and both pieces are artfully and meticulously crafted. Thank you very much!
I received my ring today and it is absolutely exquisite. This piece is now my favorite because of its simplistic beauty and superb craftsmanship. I could not be happier with my purchase! I look forward to being the proud owner of more of Caine's pieces. Thank you Caine!
I just bought the Blue Ocean Dream and I am absolutely over the moon with it. It is a 21st gift but I am thinking of getting one for myself, one for my sisters birthday and i have about another 6, 21st's coming up in the next two years so I will be back. The pearl looked nice in the photo but it was even nicer when it arrived. Its colour reminds me of the ocean in Cairns with its blues and greens. It so rich and lustrous. The jade looks amazing. Thank you for your great service and quick delivery. I am one very happy customer. Yours Sincerely
Wow, my ring arrived today after a long and eager wait! But I live in the UK so expected this. Its absolutely beautiful, I have wanted this ring for about 2 years now and have finally treated myself and I'm glad I did. Ruby is my birthstone and the rubies are truly sparkling! Thank you

I just received your pearl earrings ""Ice Cold"". They are perfect. Cool enough to dress up a jean outfit but classy enough to wear for evening. Thank you. Expect to get lots of compliments. I appreciate your talent and passion. Thank you.
I just received the opal and pearl earrings that I had ordered and I am amazed. They are more beautiful that the picture. I can't believe how elegant they are. The opals are two of the most sensational stones I have ever seen and the craftsmanship is beyond words. I know people can be reluctant to order something from a picture but I can tell you the picture doesn't hold a candle to the quality of what I received. I received them in a wonderful little box, tied with ribbon and inside is the story behind the artist and the product. It was shipped to me in just a matter of days. I couldn't be happier. These were a Christmas present for my sister but now I want to keep them for myself. I will definitely be ordering more items in the future.
Having recently received the first order I ever placed through you, all I can say is that I was astonished to find ""Blossoming White"" even more beautiful than it looked in the closeup. I was not expecting this, especially considering the modest price, and would have been satisfied if it even came somewhat close to the picture when in fact, the picture did not do it justice. You're a very fine artist, and I feel in your debt. I guess you could call me a happy customer! Thank you,
The opal earrings were beautiful and well crafted. My wife loves them. Thank you.
My husband passed on unexpectedly last year and I thought that my life would never be void of the emptiness of losing him. The loss as a wife, and as the mother of our children. Though that pain will remain always, I have since been blessed to have met another man who is helping to remember wonderful life can be. I wanted to buy myself something to remind me of the beauty of love, togetherness and unity. When I found Caine's ""Two For You"" choker, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. The craftsmanship of the piece is exceptional, and the simple beauty of the piece is exquisite. It is so perfect that I actually purchased a silver chain independently so I can wear the pendant itself every day, and will save the choker for special occasions. Thank you so much Caine for sharing your gift with all of us! Sincerely,
Dear Caine, I always looked at the Heart Voice ring and I could not wait until I could afford to purchase it. The color of the stone is magical. Very unique raised design. Thank you
Pittsburgh, PA, USA
Caine, Your opal ""Sweet Princess"" earrings are so amazingly beautiful that they literally took my breath away when I opened the box. Thank you your artistry.
The intensity ring is more beautiful than the picture posted on the site. Its beauty lies in the simplicity of the design, the splendor of the stone, and gift it brings to the children through Caine's donation. Thank you for such a wonderful piece.

Novica and I have traveled far together. At first I was charmed by the excellent and delicate quality of their creations, but as time past, I knew the beauty of creations from artists such as Caine is ever enduring. I am 75 years old, and have gone through many changes in my life, such as becoming a Buddhist in 2005. One of the few constants in this journey of life has been my relationship with Novica. No, I am far from wealthy; as a matter of fact I'm on a fixed income. But I wish to share my love for the creative beauty by returning again and again to wonder at the glory!

My WHITE SOPHISTICATION pearl ring is even more beautiful than in the pictures on the website - I'm very impressed! I've worn the ring every day since it arrived, and have received many compliments. Thank you Caine for a simple, clean design.

I admire Caine's work and craftsmanship. I like his designs and materials as well. I will be keeping an eye on future works from Caine, for myself and for gifts. Especially in Peridot rings for men :) [size 6 or 9 btw hehe]. I much admire the opal ring I last ordered. I wear it all the time. Great colour, great wearing too! Thank you.
From glancing at his work, it was clear that Caine had a great sensitivity for style and composition in his work. His designs are at once minimal, bold and delicate, and he weaves these oppositions seamlessly. After receiving the pearl and opal pendant 'Eclipse of White' I was very impressed to discover the quality of the pearl and the opal, as well the craftsmanship of silver. It looks even better in real life than in the picture. I purchased this pendant for my mother as a gift and think she will love it. I will not hesitate to purchase jewelry from Caine in the future. Thank you for your talent!
I just received a beautiful ring with opal called Desire...it came wrapped in a nice box, with a gorgeous bow and a hand written note ...a day before Christmas Eve...i could not have received a better present than this....the ring is nicely designed and beautifully made....Thank you Caine...
The ring was beautiful - simple, classic and would have been perfect for my wedding band - it just wasn't the right size, so I ordered a ring similar to it in the next size up. The new ring is in the mail and am hoping it will be the right size. Thanks.
I am extremely pleased with the Loyal Love ring I received today. It is a beautiful ring that is very well crafted. The stone is eye catching and the silver beams. I appreciate its meaning and look forward to wearing it. It is a very substantial piece of jewelry. I highly recommend this ring and look forward to other items from Caine. P.S - My wife also loves it.

I continue to admire the beautiful simplicity of your designs, Caine. You have a gift for showcasing fine pearls and gemstones. I have added ""Passion for Peace"" to my collection of your jewelry, and look forward to seeing more. Thank-you again! Kathleen Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Pearl and opal pendant, 'Blue Ocean Dream' I love my pendant. I actually think that it looks better than the picture on the webpage. It's also has an amazing price. A well made piece. Great quality. Thank you =)
I cannot get over how strikingly beautiful my Blue Ocean Dream pendant is. I've bought several gorgeous pieces from this site, but this one is my favorite. I will definitely be a repeat customer!
I've recently purchased your ""Never Apart"" cocktail ring. Beautiful work. Thank you ! Monika
Grazie dei tuoi preziosi gioielli. Abbiamo regalato ad una neo laureata un tuo anello e tuoi orecchini in opale, ottenendone un sacco di lacrime e tanti abbracci (lei era un po' brilla in verità, ma i tuoi lavori erano splendidamente originali e assolutamente accessibili come costo). Grazie molte, continua così. Loris
Spectacular craftmanship for two pairs of earrings I recently purchased. Very happy with them indeed. Stunning work Caine. Tracey
Caine's opal java sea earrings are so light and beautiful that I bought another pair for my best friend.
Wow is all I can say. My sweet husband ordered me the ""close to you"" ring and its so wonderfully made. Its simple and yet the meaning behind it makes it priceless. I look forward to ordering more from Caine. Thank you!
I have recently received the Enchanged Bali ring which contains an exquisite shimmering deep blue topaz that is mesmerizing to see. the stone is astonishingly large and I was afraid that it would be impossible to wear gracefully, but the silver wave design of the band is so expertly done that it counteracts the size of the stone and allows the ring to ""breathe"" without being overbearing (or unwearably heavy). I have worn the ring every day since it arrives. Every time i see the stone it catches light so beautifully that one can't help smiling inwardly.Thank you for producing such a bold and beautiful piece and sharing it with those far away.
