The morganite and rose gold of this ring are beautiful, but I was disappointed to find that the pink tourmaline stones are very pale, and do not provide enough contrast as they do in the photo. I considered sending the ring back, but after wearing it for a couple of hours on a trial basis, I can't part with it--it's too pretty. I've looked around a lot for a moderately priced ring with these stones that is set in gold rather than gold-plated silver, and this seems to be the best option. I also discovered that the same ring is sold at a department store for over $800. Maybe they kept all the vibrant tourmaline stones. If you want a beautiful morganite ring, this will satisfy you.
The pictures of this ring do not do the ring justice as all. It is absolutely beautiful. My fiance bought this for me as my engagement ring because I didn't want the usual diamond ring that everyone else has. I get so many compliments on it. Young and old alike. One young woman told me it was all she would ever want in an engagement ring. Stunning!!
