I was willing to pay the price for the beauty in the picture. The giftbox looks black in the picture I see, but is truely a lovely red wood. Center stone is more lime green than pictured, looks more like a peridot in person, which washes out my hand because I am fair, but is pretty by itself. I know stone cuts well, the center stone is a pincess cut, NOT a cushion cut. I saw this in the picture, so I wasn't actully disaponted about that. I wanted princess cut. The side stones, supposed to be smokey quartz, are a warm bronze color, which makes me wonder about genuinity. Perhaps the gold tone near them makes them to appear that way? The "white" topaz is the same lime color as the green center stone. There isn't a rating available for acuracy or I would have marked way down in acuracy department. Craftmanship? this ring hurts. Every sing stone is in a prong setting and the prongs are not wrapped around the gems. They poke sharply into the neighboring fingers, feeling very rough. It is still GORGEOUS to look at, but feels so cheap. A cocktail ring that is not worth the price. Should be maximum $25.
I really like the color combination on this ring but I found the side stone mountings are very scratchy to wear. So scratchy that I rarely wear the ring. If I find a way to file the mounting down to increase the comfort I may wear the ring more often.

Ring was an incredible buy and looks stunning. Unfortunately I was shipped a ring with a loose center stone. It shakes and rattles. It has to go back. I wish the ring was checked before it was sent out to me. Sort of a pain to have to ship it back, wait for a new one.....If the ring wasn't damaged, it would be one of my favorite pieces.
