There weren't really enough reviews on this yet to make me comfortable (only 5), but all the reviews rated it highly, and I had a bunch of rewards points to redeem, so I figured what the hey. I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the ring exceeds all expectations and is far prettier than the product photograph. (Be honest -- how many times have we fallen in love with a stunning internet photo of a ring, eagerly opened the package on its arrival and then wondered if the photograph even matched product?) You can order this one with confidence -- the craftsmanship is great, the design is beautiful, and the materials used are top shelf. Just the right size, too -- not too big to be believable, but big enough to make 'em wonder! Also has great warmth and play of color -- not a cold greyish-blue like some CZs are.
Looks quite classy in the photos, but cheap-looking in reality. The gold tone is much more golden and glitzy than it appears in the pictures. The hammered setting is particularly thin and tinny. I ordered two of these, and the top facet of one has an indelible scuff mark. The brown (scuffed) stone is an attractive color; the green is quite pale, resembling a peridot. It looks nice in the photo but is overwhelmed by the bright gold in actuality.
What doesn't show in any of the pictures is that the stone sits in an open, cone-like setting elevated above the band. Thus the stone sits much higher above the finger than it appears to do from the photos. Nothing wrong with that, other than it doesn't look like the pictures and might come as a surprise.
