I was struggling with what to buy my fiance for an engagement ring. I wanted her to have a much larger diamond than I could afford to buy right now (I am in the process of establishing my business). My fiance found this ring on the Overstock website and loved it. She showed me several others that she also liked, but my mind kept coming back to this one. It had the largest center stone and the biggest total diamond weight for the money. It looks beautiful on her finger, and all of her friends compliment us on how beautiful it is. Even though the center stone is only 1/3 carat and the total diamond weight is 1/2 carat, it looks much larger and much more expensive than it is. It was the perfect choice. We are both very happy with it.

I just love my new ring. It is lightweight, yet elegant. It goes well with everything that I wear and sparkles like a full carat ring.It was very economical and just looking at it would make you think I spent hundreds of dollars for it!

This not your typical one stone engagement ring. It seems that this ring is comprised of 8 stones. However collectively, and at a glance seems to be a single diamond. T the setting and mounting of the stones is what makes this ring distintively different. While the ring is only 1 1/5th carats, the creative mounting makes this ring comparable to a 2 carat ring. While the clarity rating isn't the highest, it does not have an impact on the stunning presence of the ring. Since receiving this ring, I have received a ton of compliments on the beauty of the ring. Its a great ring for the price!! I love the ring and very happy with the investment.

I brought this ring to wear as my wedding band. It is small and dainty but I expected that as the description states the whole ring all together is 1/2 carat. This is what I wanted, a band of super sparkly diamonds to accent my one carat engagement ring. This ring pairs with my engagement ring really well. The combination is fantastic, the diamonds all sparkle like crazy. I am very pleased with this ring and it is cheaper, bigger, and of better quality than a wedding band I was going to buy elsewhere for double the price!

I received this ring as an engagement ring a few months ago, from my fiance and I am very happy with the quality. Although it's 1/4 carat, it has great clarity for the price. Once I had it cleaned, it sparkles even more. I love this ring and would recommend it to anyone. Whenever my fiance or I are looking for jewelry, we come to Overstock first. Overstock has great service, and quick delivery.

this ring for its price surprisingly has substantial gold in it and the prongs are smooth (hardly snugs on clothes). the stone looked relatively bigger than my round diamond (also 1/4 carat) --- i think its the square (princess cut) shape that makes it look bigger ( i am not complaining -- i love it!). the stone is clear and sparkly but its not perfect (i checked it out using my loupe) but its imperfection is not seen with the naked eye. this ring is perfect for its price BUT the box is so tacky and terribly cheap looking ---- quick fix ---- buy a decent ring box if you are presenting this as an engagement ring so as not to ruin that romantic moment.

simple and beautiful. Judging off the image I would not expect this ring to be so pretty and sparkly. My fiancÚ proposed to me with a different, more expensive ring but due to my job, where I need to wash my hands multiple times per day or even per hour, I wanted a more simple and easier to wear ring with less diamond and sparkle, therefore I ordered two "back up" rings, the one in the image and the one with similar setting but of 1/4 carat diamond and $*** less in price...I was amazed how big of a difference there was between the two. I ended up keeping the more expensive one: the diamond is as sparkly as on my original 1 carat ring and the setting looks so clean and classy that it suits any occasion or outfit. I would be totally happy having this ring as my one and only engagement ring. No need to overspend. This ring is a steal.

My husband and I were upgrading my engagement ring and wedding band, We came across this ring and ordered it! I was unsure of the cut of diamond because I have never seen one up close and I am a big fan of the Princess cut. It is the most beautiful and elegant of all the shapes and cut of diamonds! We matched it with the 1/2 carat Princess cut channel anniversary band and OH MY GOSH.... it was made for each other! Guy's this is a must.....TRUST ME!

This is a very pretty ring that comes with an IGL certification. Keep in mind 1/4 carat is not very large, but it is a nice stone and setting - it would be appropriate for a small engagement ring. Lucida is a patented Tiffany's cut, and as far as I can tell (I'm not a jeweler) this is not a Lucida cut stone but only a Lucida style setting with a princess cut stone. Still very pretty and the Lucida setting is an elegant and classy setting. Being I1 H, the stone appears flawless, clear, and sparkly to the naked eye and is something you can feel okay about showing off even if it's not the biggest ring ever.

Although 1/4 carat diamond is not a headlight, this diamond was absolutely beautiful! The quality, sparkle, and polished gold band, makes the ring itself a fabulous buy. Well done Overstock.

I have always loved rose gold jewelry & but it is difficult to find in jewelry stores except the kind with just rose gold accents on it; > " ( Black Hills Gold ) ". This is a gorgeous ring. I first ordered it in the 1/2 carat TDW but returned it because in the meantime I discovered O. also offered it in 1 carat TDW. I have been married for 35 years & was looking for a pretty ring to wear on my middle finger to complement my other jewelry. If you are a lover of rose gold like I am; this ring is perfect. FIVE ( very enthusiastic ) STARS!

i was completely surprised with the size of the stone --- i have 1/2 carat stones and this ring's stones look much bigger. its not huge but surprisingly good size for 1/2 carat. overall, i LOVE it. my only concern is that the ring's band is so tapered --- the bottom part of the ring is so thin. i am bringing this to my jeweler just to get his opinion if this concern of mine can be easily remedied in case it "breaks". seriously, i hope my jeweler gives it a thumbs up. i want to keep this ring because the clarity of the stones look good and has just the right sparkle.

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.

This ring is perfect! It may be a 1/2 carat, but appears to be much more. The ring sits very high which looks great, but can be frustrating if you use your hands a lot. We receive compliments on the ring almost daily. Very proud of this ring for its look and low cost!

So I read a ton of reviews, I looked at alot of rings in stores...I researched my can off and I will tell you that this ring (so far) is perfect...It arrived in two days, it is a perfect size for a 6..and doesn't need to be sized at all...a full carat would have been too big and a 1/2 too small...this is a great ring and we are so happy....we went and got our bands today and a jeweler said our ring was beautiful and amazing. I will recommend this ring and company to many people...Thanks Overstock for making this time in our lives so special!

I expected the diamonds to be smaller than what they appeared to be online but in reality they turned out to be much smaller than I had expected. Know that 1/4 carat is an okay size for a solitare but a little too small for a three stone diamond ring. Apart from the size, the ring is really beautiful. It sparkles and I can't see any flaws. Overall I am glad I bought this ring! Buy it if you're looking for a delicate but classy ring.

I got this as my 10th anniversary gift. I saw the picture and thought I was getting a ring that wows. The diamonds are much smaller than they look in the picture and look even smaller on the hand. I took this ring to a jeweler and he said the center stone is not 1/2 carat,is actually about 10 points smaller than that. I already had it sized and soldered to my wedding band by the time he told me this, so now I'm stuck with this ring. Please rethink.

I wrote a review three years ago and commented on the size of the band. Today, I am writing to let you all know that I had to take my ring twice to the local jeweler to have the center diamond tighten and then to have the prong tighten before I lost my diamond. The jeweler told me that the center diamond was a good cut and measured as 1 carat, but recommended that I swab the 4 pong for a 6 pong. I really don't think the diamonds on the side are real, because there are no breathing holes underneath them. The ring does have sparkle, but I would not pay what they are asking for it. I am glad we purchased this ring way under 2K.

The diamond size definitely does not correspond with what you see in the picture. I went to many jewelery stores to see how large the 1/4 carat was so I was not too shocked by the size. The setting is beautiful though. I love it. It is set high and the princess cut made it look a little larger than what I have seen at stores. The diamond is not of the best qualities. You can definitely see every inclusion which can be offsetting. Overall it is a pretty ring. I have received many compliments. Great for a proposal (if you are on a budget). I love it! (I have smaller than average fingers 51/2,6. The tinier your finger, the better it looks)
Few pieces of jewelry are as important as an engagement ring. Whether you are hoping to surprise the love of your life with a stunning diamond or are picking out your own ring, you'll want to put some thoughtful preparation into the shopping process. With these tips, you can choose an engagement ring that will last a lifetime, just like your marriage.
Fine jewelry is an investment that can last for generations, so it's important to know how to buy diamonds before you start shopping. When purchasing diamond jewelry, pay attention to the four C's: color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. These are the four characteristics by which a diamond's quality is measured. If all four are ranked high, the diamond jewelry will cost more, but it will be that much more beautiful and valuable.
