The ring does not look like the picture. Still looks nice. I wore for about 3 weeks and then the gold wore off. Then, OMG it turned my finger GREEN, in the pattern of the ring. Its too bad because I did get compliments on it and I did like it but now I obviously cannot wear it. Would not buy again.
I bought thing ring about 3 months ago for myself. I wanted to wait to write a review to see how it held up. So here's the verdict, I love this ring so much I'm considering buying another in case anything happens to this one! I've read the other reviews and must say that I too, am pleasantly surprised at the quality of craftsmanship in the ring. My concern prior to purchasing was how well it would wear given the fact that there are stones 360 degrees around it. Let's face it, rings take a lot of wear and tear on tables and such and that deteriorates the metal and stones over time. So I'm here to say that while I'm very hard on my hands (of course, I only wear the ring when out of the house versus when in and cleaning) the ring is in amazingly good shape. Be mindful to clean the ring more often than you normally would to keep it as sparkling as the day you bought it. By the nature of the design, it will require a tooth brush scrub or wash in jewelry cleaner as any multifaceted ring like this would. One reviewer said the gold accent was not as pronounced as in the picture. Well, if I hold it to even natural daylight at the right angle (versus artificial light that makes all jewelry look good), it does indeed look like the picture with the gold more accented than the CZ and silver. However, I hear the point and will say that when the ring in on the finger and held out evenly, the silver is more pronounced than the picture seems to indicate. Please don't let these all too specific matters deter you. This is a fabulous ring and I too think it looks real or I wouldn't wear it as I do in the company of those who can afford jewelry that I can't. Last, I can only think of one thing you should be aware of prior to buying. If you are not accustomed to wearing a ring that has stones around the whole circumference, you'll have to adjust to what it feels like to have a ring with stones touching the other fingers next to it. Do you understand what I mean about this? It shouldn't hurt the skin on the fingers to either side but I have to admit that it's a slightly different sensation than one might be used to. I wear the ring on my middle finger and because of the fabulous size of the ring (a half inch), you're going to be aware you're wearing it for a while until you get used to the fact that the fingers on either side of your 'wearing' finger are going to be rubbing against the 'grain' of the ring. This shouldn't deter you from the purchase but I thought it worth mentioning. On the positive side, it this ring were real and had cost $10,000 or so, you'd probably want to be aware of the fact that your were wearing it every minute to make sure it hadn't slipped off your finger! That having been said, I hope you enjoy the beauty of this ring as much as I have.
This was my first but, won't be my last time ordering from Overstock.com. I had previously heard good things about the site and was pleased with the cost, packaging and delivery of my order. The ring fits true to size, the czs sparkles and it has a pricey look to it! The ring fits my fingers because they are long and I always wear bigger jewerly. I would recommend this site to friends.
I bought the ring for a friend but, when I got it - I tried it on. Now, I told myself that I was wearing it to find out if it would turn my finger green or if I got a allergic reaction. Basically looking for something to go wrong. There is nothing worse than getting a piece jewelry that gives a "cheap ring" rash. Well, I'm still wearing it and my friend has now received another gift. I like that the ring is different in style. It's simple yet very classy. The workmanship is not bad at all! Someone thought it was much more expensive than it was.. so I was very happy about that. This is a great little gift for anyone. Great buy.
