I never write reviews but I just had to let anyone interested in this ring know how beautiful it is. I was hesitant at first because there were no reviews and they didn't show a picture of the ring on a models hand like some of the other rings have but I'm so so glad I went with my gut and ordered it because I couldn't be happier. It's even better in person! The way it shines and sparkles is unbelievable! The size is perfect. I wish there was a way to upload a picture to show because the ones they have up just doesn't do it justice.
I've had this ring for 2 weeks and I've debated returning it almost every day. It is debatable whether the center stone can be considered gem quality. I was expecting flaws, because it is I1-I2, but the entire center stone is flawed from the center to two sides and unfortunately the flaws keep this stone from sparkling. The two side stones are what I expected with an I1-I2, some flaws, but they still sparkle. The smaller diamonds are of good quality, in fact they may be SI, because they sparkle and do not have any blemishes that I can see with my "naked" eye. The metal work is yet another disappointment. One side of the circle is actually an oval, and the gold that surrounds every stone in beads is melted in places, disorganized and just poor quality. The ring would be beautiful, in theory. I love the vintage look and the style, I just wish they had taken more care in creating the ring. I could forgive the fact that the diamonds are low quality, or the poor metal work if it had beautiful diamonds, but the fact that both are visible at a quick glance and even more so if the ring is stared at, moves me to return the ring. My ring is also missing 1 to 2 diamonds! I have a total of 39. Overstock says that there should be 40 total, but the way the description reads, it should have one .5 ct center stone and 40 additional stones at 1 ct. I understood this as 41 stones with TDW of 1.5 ct. I'm going to exchange this ring for the same ring, and maybe it will be of higher quality. I'll post again when I get it. Wish me luck ;)
