I was skeptical about purchasing a ring online, espeically one for this price. But after looking at just about every other jewelry store imaginable, I noticed something...the color and clarity of the diamonds in this ring are the exact same color and clarity of the diamonds in similar rings at big name jewelry stores, but literally half the price. I decided to take a chance, telling myself that if I didn't love it, I could always send it back. I was completely blown away at how stunning this ring was in real life. The picture honestly does not do it justice. It's a shame that overstock.com doesn't allow customers to upload their own photos to their reviews because I would love to be able to share my pictures with others that might be on the fence about taking a chance on ordering this. The ring came in a plain white cardboard box, so if if you're looking for a dramatic reveal in an ornate box for a proposal, look elsewhere for that. One more thing that I have to mention is how quickly I received my ring. I ordered in on a Thursday evening and it was delivered the following Tuesday. I dont know if that's normal or if I just got lucky, but it was a huge plus for me!
