    Adjectives: Word Order

    In my school, my teacher taught us the word order of adjectives as follows:

    Size-Age-Shape-Color-Origin-Material

    I want to know if these adjectives are correct according to the word order my teacher gave me:

    A tiny circular silvery diamond ring.
    A gigantic ancient brown wooden house.

    Please understand that those "rules" are simply guidelines. That said, your examples are perfectly natural.
