I had been looking for a while for EXACTLY what I wanted. I found a similar setting for ***, but to get a 1 carat center stone, jewelers said I'd have to pay at least $5,000. I did not want to spend that much. This is exactly what I want for what I am willing to pay. I was cautious about buying something this expensive on line, but it all worked out. Except for the size. Would have been nice to try on first. But better than the high pressure of jewelry stores. VERY happy with our decision!!
