Ok, I certainly did not get the defective jewelry gene my dad had. Thank god!!! I'm in my later 40's and this is the first real relationship that has developed far enough toward marriage. Just buying jewelry on my gut instinct has thus far been right on the money, and not spending so much utilizing sales and just smart buying. I was going to wait until I could afford something really nice down the road, but when I came across this ring I had to keep coming back to look at it. I couldn't find anything else to compare to this value. She wanted something wider than a traditional ring and I'm glad she did. This ring is not traditional. Everyone that has seen it has mentioned how unique it looked. Not to mention the open jaws when they see it. It's really sparkly and shiny, so what woman wouldn't like it??? It looks fairly large, but after a week of wearing it, she said it doesn't get in the way, doesn't snag on anything and is comfortable, save for being just slightly larger than her normal 6 1/2. She's still floored over this and I could not have possibly done any better. So if you want a bit of a different setting, something a little wider than traditional, this thing scores big. I went with the white gold as I have bought her a lot of silver jewelry and it matches very nicely. You can take this with a grain of salt, but I have to give this a 10.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very good, but the real thing is awesomer
- How accurate was the sizing? Fairly accurate, but slightly larger
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality appears quite good, big and sparkly
i always had the intention on purchasing the engagement ring on overstock. my fiance had gotten on several times and had shown me examples of rings she might would like as her engagement ring. she hadn't spotted this particular one, thankfully, and i quickly snatched it! all she has gotten since receiving it are compliments of how gorgeous the ring is and how expensive it looks...if only those folks knew the deal i got on it. first thing i did after getting it was take it to a local, trusted jeweler who told me it was in fact what it was supposed to be and continued about how beautiful of a ring it was. it is TRULY hard to believe that this ring is only half a carat in weight!! HONESTLY appears to be at least twice to three times that! have not had a single problem with it. it is literally the perfect size: not too small, not too big, but big enough that it will catch peoples eyes and has the perfect "gauty" look to it for us! it is sincerely a must have piece.
My husband and I got married 5 years ago but never could afford my very OWN diamond ring, so I was wearing my Mothers ring all this time. Well we finally were able to afford something special for myself and Overstock was DEFINATELY the cheapest out of all the jewlery stores we looked at. I came across this ring and couldn't stop coming back to it again, and again. I bought it along with two seperate wedding bands to match on either side (also from overstock) and it looks flashy without being TOO flashy! I get soo many compliments on this ring. If you are a man reading this and your woman wants something elegant without the price tag... this is the ring for her! Dont forget the band though! The only problem Ive had with it is my own doing. Ive caught the corner of the ring on my counter a few times and knocked ONE of my diamonds out! Luckily it was the smallest diamond on there and it wasn't one of the middle princess cut diamonds. It wasn't much to fix.... still worth every penny.. I LOVE IT!
I looked at alot of different rings while on Overstock and I was actually shopping in a particular price range and this was one that just popped out at me. Of course guys you need to know what style she likes and this is the style that my girlfriend, excuse me fiancee likes. She swears up and down that it is not 1/2 carat but I have tried to convince her that it is. She just does not believe it and to be honest and I do not know alot about diamonds, this ring looks very good and appears to be more than 1/2 carat TDW. She has gotten nothing but compliments and if I could post a picture I would of it on her finger so you could get an idea. Buy this ring....you will not regret it.
