I have been in the market for two (2), 1/4 diamond rings that were semi-mounts to stack on either side of my 5mm Tacori engagement ring/band that holds a large center stone. And I have searched and compared for several months before deciding I agree with other reviews that this is, by far, the best price. And the rings are VERY sparkly and white. I attribute this to the "near colorless" rating of the stones (G-H) as opposed to competitor rings that are (I-J). The clarity rating is immaterial given the small nature of the stones. Anyway, I was VERY pleasantly surprised when the rings. I was apprehensive buying sight-unseen, but couldn't be happier. I was worried they would be too dainty for my 5mm engagement band, but quite the opposite, they created a beautiful symmetry on either side of the engagement ring. The rings definitely hold their own and even look great worn just by themselves. They are dainty but the 19 stones cross the entire surface of the top of one's finger. I was concerned that the prongs would be too noticeable and interfere with the "continuity of diamond look" but you hardly notice the prongs. It's just a nice, dainty line of shiny diamonds. THESE RINGS ARE GREAT FOR STACKING. And they beat the best competitor price I found by at $100 per ring.
I purchased this ring back on May 2010, for my wedding in August 2010. I do have pretty big hands :-) so it makes the band look a bit small, however, this is still a very delicate and beautiful ring, does shine a lot, I am a very busy mom, with 4th baby due 2/21/11, so, a lot of bling is not my thing. Just beauty & simplicity...
Purchased this ring in mid-August because it was less than half the price of my local jewelry stores. It was pretty much what I expected - a couple of the stones had visible flaws, but overall the ring was pretty and suited what I was looking for, so I was happy. Unfortunately, it is now a mere 3 months later and even though I wear the ring VERY sparingly, it has already lost one of the stones. When I say I wear the ring 'very sparingly', I mean I never wear it around my house (NEVER to clean the house) or running errands, grocery shopping, etc. I have a plain gold band that I wear 90% of the time. I literally put this ring on just to go to our family's for Thanksgiving dinner, and that's when I noticed the stone was missing. Unfortunately since I didn't buy the extended warranty, customer service told me I am basically out of luck. They said I could return it and I MIGHT get a 'partial credit', but they couldn't tell me ahead of time how much of a credit I would get. So why would I return it when I don't even know how much of a credit I would get? That makes no sense to me. I guess my only option is to wear it as is, or take it to a local jeweler and pay to have the stone replaced. You get what you pay for, I suppose.

I have had two of these rings for about two years now, and I love them. I sometimes wear them stacked with my engagement ring, sometimes stacked without it, and sometimes I wear just one alone. Every time I wear these rings, I get complements. There is a lot of sparkle to this ring. My friend has one with the same tdw that she bought at a local jewelry store when she was getting married, and she paid twice as much for less sparkle. I think this ring is a great deal, and it is holding up well to every day wear. I was worried that I would lose a stone since they are small, but after 2 years, I've yet to lose any stone. This ring is great for a right hand band, a stacked diamond band, or as a wedding band. It looks a lot more expensive than it is. I highly recommend.
Disappointed in size...good color...would not recommended buying. End points of diamonds are sharp.

The ring is nice, it has stayed sparkly over the last year of wearing it. I didn't jump on writing a review because the diamonds are very textured, and stand out a lot. It has taken a lot of getting used to. the metal is so hard that it has dented my engagement ring area at the prongs. The ring has with stood a year, and all the diamonds are still in tack. I said no to would you recommend it to a friend, because I would consider if they were on a budget... it is a safe ring to buy, and pretty... but no pain no gain I guess is what they say. I would rather buy a ring that is not so raised and sharp on the edges.

i wanted a simple ,light, wedding band. we are eloping & i do not have an engagement ring, so i will not be wearing it with a diamond. i do have rather large hands,(ring size 8.5) & it is VERY delicate on my hand. it's so delicate, it's almost like glitter. however, i really like it! it's very simple & sweet...& sparkly! it would work very well with a solitare diamond or even to stack but also looks nice alone. i think on someone with small hands, it would look even better than it does on mine.
