there's small black metal between the black stones and it all wore off to be silver within 2 months after purchase. In the picture, it looks like all black diamonds side by side, but that's not true. even the black stones are not very black anymore. Wish I could exchange, but there's only a 30 day warranty. No extended warranty was available.
I purchased the white topaz/black diamond ring and this band to compliment it as a wedding set. I opened the box excitedly and was immediately disappointed. The stones did not look real at all. They were rough and unpolished, making this look like a child's toy ring. Sending it back.
My fiance and I are saving for a house, and together we have 4 kids; 3 are either in college or heading to college. Buying experience engagement rings and wedding bands wold have been poor judgement on our part. I love the fit, and I have chubby and short fingers, this ring looks good on me. I love it. Can't wait for him to put my band on at our ceremony.
