I kept going back and forth on whether or not to order this ring. I have always wanted a black diamond solitaire! They are so unique and classy looking; something different than the same run-of-the-mill white diamond. Well, when I showed it to my husband, he must have really loved it, because he ordered it for me! I was so thrilled when I saw it! The black diamond has unbelievable sparkle! It is just breathtaking! The pave diamonds are gorgeous and they are everywhere, including the prongs! This ring is such a unique piece, don't hesitate to buy!!!!!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this ring the shape the really thin band with the halo and the tiny diamonds going up the prongs. I have personally never liked thick bands and this ring is my personality in ring form lol. The one and only problem I have with my ring is that there are just to many inclusions for my liking. I have read that this was normal and even spoken with an Overstock representative who said it was normal but I have a friend who got a black diamond ring from zales and her black diamond has the inclusions but no where near as noticable. I am waiting for a representative from the jewlery department to contact me to see if I can return this one and have one sent with much less of them. I have read the other reviews and some of you have said you saw them in yours and others of you have said you didn't notice anything wrong with your black diamond. I am hoping I can resolve the matter. This same exact ring is also at zales for 100 dollars more and like I said the zales rings have the normal inclusions too just less noticable. So if I can't get a ring from here with less inclusions I may consider trying zales. I really hope a representative on here gets back to me though. This is truely a BEAUTIFUL ring.

I was very pleased when I received this ring as an alternate wedding ring. The band is very dainty and gives a gorgeous backdrop to the stunning black diamond. You hardly feel it on your finger, and small white diamonds run everywhere (even up the prongs holding the black solitaire). I am in love, had this for over 4 months and can't believe I hadn't written a review yet. I hardly wear my original engagement ring at all anymore... I will be getting a black diamond eternity band to compliment the white diamond eternity band I currently wear with this. There are a few flaws, but that is to be expected with the price. the only drawback, which really isn't one is that the black diamond shows any smudge, fingerprint, etc., very easily but can be just wiped off with a soft blouse or whatever you're wearing. I had this appraised the day I received it and was told it was worth much, much more than what I paid. Another VERY satisfied customer. Thanks O.co.

After reading many reviews and considering this for several days, I made the purchase. The ring shipped SUPER FAST and I was thrilled when I received it. Really attractive, but not too gaudy...just the right amount of sizzle! I have had many compliments and more importantly, I feel that it's comfortable and easy to wear and a really pretty piece of jewelry (even for every day wear).
I have ordered many black diamonds from other sites and have been very disappointed either with the size or quality, and they all went back. I saw this ring and thought I'd give it a try. The setting is beautiful! Delicate, but intricate. The black diamond is the size as it was stated, which is a BIG diamond. However, there are many small white inclusions on the table, but it is not noticable in different lights. You have to get on top of it to see them. AND for the price you would expect a 2 plus carat diamond to have inclusions. VERY WORTH the price! Now I just purchased wedding band rings to go withn it!!!
I received the ring today and was so excited but as I got a closer look upon inspecting it the sides of the diamond don't look polished at all and look like the the black is literally rubbed off! I'm on the fence about exchanging it but I do like the overall stye just worried the next ring will have the same issue.

Ok, with all the not so positive reviews, I was a little worried to order this, but with that being said, this is my story. They have this same ring but only in 2ct at Zales and I originally ordered that one before I even found out about this ring. The price of the ring from zales was *** ON SALE....well, I fell in love with the ring, I wanted something different for my engagement ring and love everything about it, including the thin band and halo design. I sent the ring back because for that price it had to many inclusions. I know that with black diamonds you will have some and its rare to get a real clear black diamond without any. So, I did some research online and saw that overstock had the SAME RING, but with a bigger black center diamond. Not to mention the price was $*** cheaper than zales with the bigger diamond. Well, it took me awhile to order it with all the negative reviews about the inclusions in the diamond. Well, I am so glad I did!!! I LOVE THIS RING and this ring actually has a lot less inclusions then the zales ring did....I couldn't be happier!! Perfect engagement ring!

Less than a year ago I met the proverbial woman who frequents my best dreams. Presently we find ourselves quite head over heels about about each other. Its a beautiful thing. But not being a particularly wealthy fellow financially but wanting to do something special for this great lady this holiday season, I couldn't be happier with this beautiful ring to offer as a token of my affection for her. She hasn't seen it yet. I actually just received it and was so delighted that I had to forward my appreciation and kudos to you folks at Overstock for what I believe will become a very special item between for some time. I also have to say I'm greatly relieved because I was skeptical about making such an important purchase as this online but I'm so glad I took a chance. I'm sure she'd have been fine with pretty much any ring I might have purchased but I'm certain she will absolutely love this one. I will most likely follow up with another review detailing her response after I present it to her. Can't wait. Again thanks for making it feasible Overstock. Great gift. Excellent price.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The scale is identical but none of the inclusions and smudges shown on the stone in the photo were on the clean sparkling stone I received.
- How accurate was the sizing? hopefully just right
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. I'm no gemologist but it looks absolutely beautiful.
This is the very 1st time that I have been disappointed with anything that I have purchased from overstock. The ring itself is gorgeous!!!! The black diamond on the ring that "I" received was not polished very well at all. Other than that the ring was stunning. I will take it to a jeweler to see what they can do.
My husband and I decided to buy new sets of wedding rings for our upcoming 10 year anniversary. The minute I saw this ring, I wanted it :) I kept eyeing this one. Looked at the reviews, saw good and bad comments. I even checked out other rings, but none really caught my eye like this one. So, we went for it. We even bought the matching band that was suggested with this ring. The ring is beautiful, pretty, elegant, but I must say, I was a bit upset because the band on this ring is very thin. I mean very very thin. As thin as a penny is the best way I could compare it to. I think I was comparing this ring to my current ring which has a much thicker band. So, I pondered over this ring. Trying to figure out if I wanted it or not. If it was worth it or not. I even went back on the site searching for other rings because I was sure I would return this one, but again, I still really liked this ring. Even with the band, the ring was still thin to me. So, I decided I would buy another band (one engagement ring with two bands). Got the 2nd band, and it worked out great. It's as thick as I would like it to be with a big rock in the middle. It shines so beautifully in the light! :) People were commenting on my ring before and after I bought the 2nd band. I'm pleased with my ring. My husband also bought a ring very similar to mine. We never had white gold with black diamond rings before, so this was a first for us(our first set of rings were yellow gold). So far so good for us! I hope this helps someone else in their decision making.
DO NOT expect to keep this ring long. Less than 3 years after purchasing this ring as an engagement ring for my wife, we have already replaced 1 white diamond within the first 6 months. Now there are 8 total more missing. My wife has to wait a month while her ring is being serviced by another reputable jewelry store and spend more than the ring originally was to have diamonds replaced. Save yourself the trouble and purchase at zales with the lifetime warranty!!
I am so OVERWHELMINGLY in love with my engagement ring!!! It's a stunning timeless piece!! If you are on the fence about the ring quality or anything please please PLEASE go for it!!! She will not be disappointed. I promise! So much bang for the buck!
The ring looks great, however had more inclusions than my wife liked. In addition, it was constantly moving sideways on her so was clearly to large. We are exchanging it for the next smaller size and are hoping this new one has less inclusions.
My girlfriend really loved the ring. I have seen previous posts about how the stone was not of good quality but ours was. The band is thin so there has to be some caution taken but other than that the size and color of the diamond was wonderful.
