"Designing has been my passion ever since I was a child and, though I'm from a young generation of artists, I love to create something based on traditional styles and combine it with a modern look. That's how I came to decide on designing sterling silver jewelry for men, as well as for women.

I've come to realize the importance of having a skill so that you may have more opportunities in life, so I've made a point of offering free training in silversmith techniques. My hope is that by doing so, people in need will eventually be able to earn a living and support their families.

Thank you, so much, for crafting Elephant Warrior, with onyx and gold. I admired it on-line, for longer that I oughto've, a'fore finally making one mine ;) I also appreciate your onyx and gold celtic cross pendant - so elegant ;)
I own multiple pieces of your art, I would LOVE to learn the techniques of crafting silver jewelry as yours really makes me happy. How and would you be willing to teach me? Your work is exquisite! I am an artist also, i incorporate art into everything that i do. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, Billy.
I just received my blue topaz cocktail ring and it is just stunning. It is rare to find rings with large stones and combined with a unique and beautiful design and Putu has done that beautifully. I absolutely love it and it is done at such a high quality. I will definitely be following you for future purchases, thank you.
I received the Star of David ring and it was nicer than the picture.. I am very happy with it. Your work is amazing. Harry
Just received my ""Dragon Palace"" pendant and chain, and it is a masterpiece of silverwork. Putu's designs are highly original and beautiful, and I am addicted to his work. I now own about 20 pieces from his collection, and get compliments everywhere I go. Thanks for these beautiful, artful pieces.
FITS LIKE A CLASS RING, VERY VERY COMFORTABLE AND WAIT TILL YOU WEAR IT OUT, REALLY STUNNING PIECE AND BEING SILVER DONT WORRY ABOUT SIZE HAD MINE SIZED FROM 7 TO 10 2/2 AND CANT TELL IT WAS TOUCHED, COST ME 20 AND I GOT 10% ORDER AND HAD BRACELET THAT GOES WELL WITH RING , SILVER SERPENT, SO IT DIDNT REALLY COST ME ANYTHING, BEST BUY 10 OF 10. STEVE OF MISSISSIPPI
Kuta Lilac is exquisite! The wavy top, bright amethyst, and touches of gold glow on one's hand! In amongst the masculine designs this shines brilliantly in its own power. Keep up the fine and compassionate work and teach, teach, teach!
I now own 4 of Putu's rings and this is by far my favorite....Java Paths. Nice and wide to attract attention and feel like you have a substantial friend with you. It is also a spinner, which is an added luxury bonus and it is not hollow inside, but filled with another beautiful design. I will be buying from this Artist and Craftsman's designs for a very long time. Dr. Pratt.
Putu, Thank you for the beatiful Emperor ring. It truly is like having a piece of art on my finger. I wear it with great pride and enthusium! Michael.....
I have acquired several rings from Mr Darmawan. I feel his offerings for men are the best on Novica. My favorite is the ""Lord of Java"" which has a beautiful Amethyst as it's crown. I had wanted a ring with my birthstone for years but couldn't find one to fit my style. This artist got it just right with a dark oval stone. Sadly this selection is currently unavailable here, hopefully it will come back. I also have Kingdom and Regal and am very pleased with those as well also have several others on my wishlist. One design element that I enjoy about most of his rings is the artistic carving on the underside, just really cool and unusual to find. No matter what you choose though, his craftsmanship at this price level definitely stands as a great value. Bradford
My 'bamboo circle' ring is simply lovely. I am more than pleased:) Thank you!
I received my Ring ""Energy"", and I love it ! Solid looking, full of masculine energy and a nice comfortable fit. Putu Darmawan is a fine artist and I am proud to own his work. R. H. Pratt, Ph.D.

Im very thankful for the beautiful beautiful jewelry you make, my bestfriend loved his gladiator ring, the detail on the ring is amazing, thank you so much!
'Gladiator' - Such a powerful and beautiful piece of jewellery. It is simple yet elegant, which is what made me want to get the ring in the first place. Wearing it makes me feel confident. Thank you.
DEAR MR. DARMAWAN, RECENTLY I PURCHASED YOUR ""BRAVE KNIGHT"" RING FOR MY FUTURE HUSBAND IN OUR UP COMING WEDDING. I WAS VERY VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE CAREFUL ATTENTION TO DETAIL, ESPECIALLY ON THE INSIDE OF THE RING. I WISH YOU CONTINUED SUCCESS. M. WILK
I just received a necklace and chain that I purchased for my husband. It is truly a work of art and of the highest quality. Thank you for such a lovely piece of jewelry!
I just received your Famous Warrios ring which I purchased for myself. I was dazzled and delighted by the design and workmanship. You are a gifted artist. Thank you. Blessings to you and your family.
I love the ""Water"" design of your crafted ring. The integrity of the ring is all there. Beautiful and a great fit. You may have intended for this to be a man's ring, however I made it mine. Thank you, Copa Linda, a female.
Putu Gede Darmawan, Your 'Woven Wonder' ring is really one of a kind. Gorgeous concept, beautifully made. I am proud to wear it. THANK YOU !!! Best wishes,
I recently purchased and received the men's sterling silver ""Skull Trio"" ring. I am absolutely impressed with this ring and the stunning details! Thank you!
I received my ""water"" ring today and I can honestly say it exceeded my expectations. I will definately buy from this artist again.....my sincerest thanks and gratitude to you Putu......very happy with my ring!
I just received the bracelet entitled Jakarta Man. It is beautiful and I am humbled by your amazing talents! Thank you for sharing your gift! - Mr. Lawrie Kowalski, Edmonton, Canada
I was looking for a nice silver necklace that was also unique. I ordered the Dragon Palace necklace and was very happy with the quality. I've had a lot of compliments so far. I was a little on the fence on the clasp design but it's growing on me. One note is that the clasp has released a few times when wearing. I used a small open chain link to connect the toggle and clasp so this won't happen again. Overall I am very happy with the necklace and looking at one of Putu's bracelets to match. Oh, and the description doesn't mention it but the pendant unscrews and can be used to hold something small like a lock of hair...
Namaste,putu gede darmawan,men sterling silver ring energy,wonderful,my regards,respects and gratitude I am very pleased and appreciate your work,thanks,om mani padme hum
Selamat Sore Darmawan, Terima Kasih banyak . I was delighted to receive my excellent ""AUM"" Pendant earlier this afternoon because I had not expected it to arrive until the middle of next week especially considering that I ordered the pendant only three days ago. I am wearing it at present because I am so pleased. The Peridot highlight is also my birthstone [August/Leo] so the pendant is of special significance to me. I also studied jewellery making as part of my Arts and Design Diploma and I can certainly appreciate the worknmanship of the piece and the elegance of the design. I congratulate you on your generous committment to share your natural gift by offering free training in silversmith techniques. You have a good heart and deserve all the success that comes your way. Semoga kau selamat............Don Gordon
I ordered the Men's leather locket necklace, 'Heart of Courage' for a friend of mine who has served in Law Enforcement for over 25 years. The design & name of the necklace caught my eye. It surpassed my expectations! My friend truly loved it! Keep up the GREAT Work..... Thanks :) Sharon
I received the ring ""Moon Craters"" and really like it. The design is quite unique and the silver is very smooth and shiny--a truly wearable ring. Thank you!
I purchased the 'Kingdom' ring and it is absolutely beautiful. The onyx stone is perfect and the silverwork is masterfully done. The combination of black and silver, its presentation and quality have made me very happy.
Got the size 8 silver ring 'Cobbled Paths' from mail today. The artwork are from inside to outside, is wonderful all over. I'm waitting for my size 9, can't wait to get it on my hand. Great Man's ring for everyday wear. Thank you very much~!
I ordered the Karma Path ring for my husband since his was lost in a accident and it is beautiful!!!! I love it and better yet he really likes it. It makes a very unique wedding band.
The Blue Ocean Ring that I purchased is a beautiful work of art by Putu Gede Darmawan. I am so happy with the workmanship and the beauty of the overall appearance of the ring. It is very manly. I just love it and look forward to purchasing more of his work. Ray Vitello Anita,PA
excellent high quality workmanship i highly recommend this artist you won't be disappointed.
I purchased the ""Kingdom"" mens ring for myself and was blown away when it arrived. It is gorgeous and so much heftier than the images show. It's really a man's ring with good thickness all the way around the band. And the design on the edges and iven inside the band make it quite a value. Matches beautifully with some of this artists bracelets, which I already had. Couldn't be happier with this ring.
I recently received the sterling silver ring I ordered: Woven Wonder. It is very beautiful. Although listed as a man's ring, I bought it for myself, to wear on my index finger. A lovely, heavy, beautifully designed piece. Thank you.
I recently purchased the ""Warrior"" ring and the ""Water"" ring. They are excellent quality and I have received numerous comments on how nice they are. Sizes are right on. Thanks for your great works of art.
I will definitely buy many more rings from this artist.
Absolutely one of the most handsome rings I've ever seen! Workmanship is outstanding, as is the design. Just love it!! Thanks!
The sterling silver ring ""woven wonder"" has gotten me more compliments that I can say. It is such a unique design and I have not seen others in my area with the same ring. It's a wide band and I love the way it compliments my business attire by not being an overstated accessory.
I just received the ""Karma Path "" ring and it is beautiful- you have me addicted to your work. I own two pieces, this ring and the ""Loyalty"" necklace for men. I will be purchasing more of your jewelry in the future- thank you- you are a great artist.
I just received the ""Midnight Shadow"" man's ring today. I opened the box and was immediately dazzled with this beautiful ring. It eclipses any rings I have or have ever personally seen. Thank you so much Putu Gede Darmawan for creating such a masterpiece. I absolutely love it!
I recently purchased the Pyramidal Puzzle ring. I am very very pleased with it! I love both the design and the craftsmanship. It fits perfectly, and it looks great on my right-hand ring finger. Mr. Darmawan is a skillful silversmith, artist and jeweler. I am sure that this will NOT be my only purchase from his jewelery collection. The difficulty will be ... which item to purchase next. Thank you for designing unique and modern pieces for men. The nice thing about your jewelery (especially your rings) is that they are all that I've mentioned above, and you have also included a special strength to their designs that are unique to mens' rings.
What a handsome ring! I'm amazed it came so fast! It's masculine and just what I was looking for. The skill you have is certainly displayed in its beauty. I love the smooth feeling when I wear it. I will say I bought the 11 to fit my middle finger but only fits on my left ring finger. Others may want to up a size depending the finger. I'm happy because it looks better on that finger anyway. As always, Thanks for your craftsmanship. You are gifted in your talent. RePete.
Purchased the ""Involved"" ring for my boyfriend. Absolutely beautiful. We both loved it. Thank you.
