Bought this to match a burgundy lace dress for a special event and needed something to match the Victorian style dress. This looked perfect. Amazed that the size 8 fit (it's slightly large but since the event will be in the evening my fingers will probably be swollen by then.) Anyway I was pleasantly surprised at how good this looks in person. The filigree work on the ring is perfect for that Victorian look and it's a good large size without looking insane. It sparkles nicely, the only thing is the garnet looks more purple than deep red. Garnets can do this, they are sometimes almost black or blood red. It will look nice with my dress since it is black and burgundy and it will be dim where I'm going. But it does not look deep red like the photo. It's an awesome ring at a good price but your stone color may vary slightly from the photo. I say get it anyway because that purple-berry color is hot right now. Just remember silver-plated does mean the silver will eventually come off so it's not going to be an everyday item you can wear or a ring to get washed in soap and water. But it does rock.
This ring is much bigger than it looks and is very heavy. I have small fingers and it took up my whole finger. I love the antique look of it but it was very uncomfortable to wear. Someone with larger fingers may like this better than I did but it just wasn't for me.
