I purchased this to use as a substitute wedding band on occasion. Based on the picture and rave reviews, I was excited to receive it yesterday. Upon opening the box, though, I was surprised to see how "dull" this ring looked. The band portion is a beautiful sterling silver but the top of the band, with the "diamonds," has a dull, matte-like finish which next to the shiny silver looks like it doesn't even belong on this ring. I'm very disappointed and am returning this.

I like this style ring but it just did not have any sparkle to it. The diamonds are very dull.

First of all, it took almost two weeks to receive this ring, which is annoying because I had always heard about what great shipping overstock has. Anyway, the ring is very nice. It actually looks exactly like the picture. I was hoping it would be a little bit sparklier, but it is still a very pretty ring. Interesting design and it's a nice wide band. The diamonds are pretty low quality and cloudy, but honestly that is what I would expect from a ring with such a good price! Overall I like it.

I received this ring today and am thrilled. If you are looking for a ring that has a lot of sparkle this may not be the ring for you. If you are looking for a beautiful ring to wear everyday that goes with everything and you appreciate intricate work then this ring is for you. It is timeless and has an antique look to it. The silver beading is pretty amazing for how tiny but detailed it is.It lays pretty flat and doesn't get caught on things. There is sparkle but not as much as in other types of rings. You can also wear another band or solitary stone with this but I sure wouldn't want to take anything away from this beauty. The band part of the ring is highly polished sterling silver. Your skin does not rub on the top pretty part of this ring but on the smooth silver band. It was very comfortable from the moment I put it on. The detail on the side of the ring is also beautiful and adds to the antique look and design. My mom bought this for me and to me it represents our 2 lives intertwining and is very special. I'm in love with this ring and can't quit looking at my hand.
I must say, this ring looks fairly nice but it lacks the shine factor that I thought it would have. I purchased this ring for my lady as her wedding band and yes, I do understand that it is sterling silver, but I would have liked to have seen a little more sparkle in the diamonds. You will notice an occasional sparkle once the light reflects off of it, but not enough for my taste. By the way, SHE absolutely adores it! so I guess that's all that matters. It fits well, not too big, not too small and it will certainly fit the occasion.
I wanted a ring that didn't look like it was 3 carats plus, somthing I could wear everyday, and look good on my finger. I found it in this ring. It has sparkle and yet is subdued in appearance. I have received compliments everytime I wear it. The price was great too.
It's nice everyday ring. Nothing too special about it. The band feels solid. The silver doesn't have a high shine and the diamond doesn't sparkle. Overall it feels understated. I'm ok with having a plain ring, although based on the design and the online pictures you might think it's going to be a nicer piece of jewelry.
