I bought this ring as a gift to myself as commeration to achieving several personal goals. I wear it as a right hand ring. Let my start my review with the statement, "I love jewelry." Indeed, I love it so much I study gemology in my spare time, have considered going back to school to attain this degree, and have been hired by three jewelry shops during Xmas because I helped another customer sort through the C's when the staff was too busy to help him. I also love the Asscher cut. However Asscher cuts, like Emerald cut, is not a cut that can handle a poor quality/cheap diamond. Due to the stairstep nature of the facets, EVERY flaw in the stone will be visible. When my ring arrived, I was beyond pleased. Since Asschers arent deeply cut, more of the surface area of the stone is on the "face" Thus this 1/3 carat Asscher LOOKS bigger than my 1/2 carat round brilliant diamond (i.e. surface area vs. weight). The center stone is colorless. The side stones "blend" into the ring but grab the light for sparkle areound the center stone to highlight it. This ring is classy and sophisticated, in the sense of "old money." Although the center stone is an SI-SI2 level of quality, I can not see ANY inclusions to the naked eye or with a magnifying glass. Thus, I think the quality of the stone may be more of a VS2 than an SI-SI2. Exellent craftsmanship
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Looks better in real life!
- How accurate was the sizing? Runs 1/2 size large
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Exceptional. Would have been magnitudes more expensive in a jewelry store.
I purchased this ring for my fiance. It came rather quickly. She loved it even more in real life then in the picture. We were very fortunate as the diamonds look perfect to the naked eye. When I took it to a local Jewelry store to have it sized they thought I purchased it from them. The one they were selling looked almost identical for 3 times the cost. Overall we are very happy and would purchase jewelry again from here.
The diamond ring was nice but shower up missing one of the tiny stones that surrounds the big stone, so we retired it and got a full refund which is good.

I really wanted an asscher engagement ring, but everywhere my fiance and I looked, they seemed way out of our price range. We found this ring, and was a little concerned about the center stone size (1/3 ct), wondering if the cut would be visible or not. My worries vanished when he put the ring on my finger. The center stone is very beautiful and very clear. The picture on here does not do the cut justice. The pave setting is gorgeous, and makes the ring appear very large, and creates such sparkle. The center diamond is not cut very deep, but this does not, in my opinion, effect its brillance or sparkle. The raised setting is very unique and really makes the ring pop. The only thing is I would have ordered it a 1/2 size smaller, as it seems from other reviews, most O rings are sized a little bigger. If you like the asscher cut and vintage style, I would definitely recommend this ring.
This ring was purchased to replace my wedding ring. The band is very dainty but the paved setting and center diamond are gorgeous! This EXACT ring is being sold by a very upscale local jeweler for $2100! When I took it to have it sized, they thought my husband purchased it at their store! It sparkles, is rare, very classy, quality, and sophisticated. I wear it with a paved diamond band and am thrilled. My original wedding ring was waaay more expensive but you would never know it.
I was so excited to get this ring, but it was a lot smaller than I expected. I love asscher rings a lot, and I wanted one, but was disappointed when I got it. I returned it for a full refund. I find it a little obnoxious that Overstock does not let you return things right away, you have to wait for customer service to contact you before a return can happen.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? I didn't feel that the picure was that accurate. The picture makes the ring look a lot larger and better quality than it is.
- How accurate was the sizing? The sizing was pretty spot on. Most people stated that the ring ran a 1/2 size larger, I felt it was true to size.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The center stone was clean to the eye, I couldn't see visable inclusions, but the halo and side stones made the ring look cheap to me.
I am so happy that I found and purchased this ring. Like one of the other reviewers, I had my heart set on an Ascher diamond but A) had diffculty finding them and B) when I did find them, they were very expensive. I found that this ring was the perfect value for the price. It's very sparkly (much more than I had expected) and really catches the light. Sometimes I find myself just staring at it, mesmerized by the sparkle. I definitely had trouble concentrating at work when I first got it! lol! I found that the size of the ring (the stones) was perfect. It's not too big and not too small. The halo setting makes it look very impressive. I've been getting a lot of compliments on it. As for the ring sizing, I used the size chart provided by the website and the ring fits me perfectly. I was so happy that I didn't have to take it to a jeweler to get it sized because after I got it, I couldn't imagine taking it off! I highly recommend printing out the website's sizing chart and using the feature that allows you to place a ring you already own on the page to find the right size. That's what I did. The only thing I would say about this ring is if you are a jeweler or if you know a lot about diamonds, you may find that there is a slight yellow tinge in certain lighting, however this is hardly noticable to the naked eye and if you're not looking for it, you won't see it. For the most part, the ring looks perfectly white, sparkly, and stunning. As a bonus, the shipping was incredible and the ring arrived earlier than I had expected it to. I was able to track it every step of the way, and believe me, I was constantly tracking it. lol! I highly recommend this product and I'm so happy that I made this purchase!

I had been planning on having a custom asccher cut diamond ring made, but when I saw this on sale at Christmas time ($$% off overstock price) I thought, "why not?" Overstock's return policy is good (you would have to pay shipping to return it) and so no harm, no foul if I don't like it. This is a beautiful ring, and the price cannot be beat. It has a lovely antique look, and the center diamond appears larger than 1/3c due to a more shallow depth in the cut (the depth does not negatively effect the sparkle in the diamond I received). The color is good, and the stone is eye-clean (I found 1 small inclusion using a loop that does not effect the clarity to the naked eye). The setting of the head is lovely. Negatives: I think the setting is set too high for a diamond of this size and a band this narrow, which causes the ring spins a lot. I also tend to be a bit of a princess and the pea, so I find the milgrain on the band a bit annoying. I am going to take it to my jeweler to lower the setting down (which will require removing the diamonds at the bottom of the head), change the band to one with no milgrain, slightly wider, and with different side stones. I will leave the head (halo) intact. Even with the changes I plan, this ring will still end up costing less than if I'd bought a from scratch custom ring to match it. I am very pleased with this purchase.
The ring is pretty, but it is very petite I had to return. I have small hands and it was still very small for me. However, I rated it higher because of my satisfaction with the overall transaction. The shipping was super fast and so was getting my refund - did not have any problems at all. So sorry it did not work out.
Perfect, perfect, perfect. All the reviews hold true on this ring!! I bought it for an engagement to my girlfriend and she absolutely loved it!! It looks amazing, very shiny, and nice! She can't stop looking at it days after! Definitely recommend this ring!!

Beautiful. The center looks like it is larger than 1/3ct because of the setting. Stunning, and looks very good with a traditional wedding band (have a 4mm plain white gold and it looks great). The height of the ring sits perfectly over the wedding band and even though the side setting keeps a hair space between the two, you aren't going to get any more flush with the match. The drawback? It gets hung on the strangest things (doorknobs of all things), no trouble with anything else because the edges are done well. Also, and I am not this picky but some people probably are, in most light the center looks very good, but there are a couple of lighting settings where it is just **barely** perceptible colored. I love the asscher cut and the setting. Recommended for the value/price in a heartbeat!

I bought this ring as my wedding ring and wasn't expecting it to be quite this stunning. The price was very reasonable--almost a steal for what you get! The ring sparkles in the light and the gems are crystal clear. It's unique and beautiful. From the top, the largest gem catches the eye; from the side, the raising of the band itself brings your attention to the tiniest details. It is so beautiful!
My now fiancé proposed to me with this ring a few weeks ago. I had no idea, although I had shown him rings on Overstock before I was worried about buying a ring online. It's beautiful though, and the Asscher cut is amazing, I didn't think he could afford something like that. The diamonds are sparkly and clear and look a lot larger than what size they actually are. I have gotten many compliments on it. The band is a little large, I told him my size was 6.5 and I need to get it resized but other than that it's a beautiful ring.
