First of all, it took nearly two weeks to receive this ring, which is annoying when I had always heard that overstock has amazingly fast shipping. Anyway, the ring is very pretty. The stone is big, although it has much less color than the one in the picture and is almost clear. In some low lighting it has a bluish tint, I like an aquamarine that oisn't too blue, just know that it also could look like you a wearing a big fake diamond. The band is nice and dainty. The diamonds in the halo and along the side are pretty cloudy,, but honestly it's what I would expect at such a low price! Overall if you don't mind a nearly clear stone I would recommend this ring.

I received this ring lastnight from my boyfriend as a promise ring. He picked it out on his own. =) Anyways, he said it took 3 weeks to come in and he was even worried it wouldn't come in time, so shipping is horrible. Maybe overstock should switch who they ship with? On to the actual ring, many reviews complain about the faintness of the blue, but in my opinion its gorgeous. Aquamarine (my birthstone) is a light blue anyways. However, the diamonds along the band and stone are very milky white, again i'm not complaining because I love it either way =) the stone is veryyyyyyyyyyyyy sparkly!! The band is very...dainty I guess. I was worried it would look ridiculous on my chubby fingers, but it looks great =)
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The ring on the website does have more blue than in person, but I'm not complaining because I love it either way.
- How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate. My ring fits beautifully
It is not an exaggeration to say that when I opened the box my heart started singing. How could such an inexpensive ring be this beautiful? I have never cared for my birth stone because it always looked blah boring, so I held no high hopes for this one. I was so suprised at how good looking this one was. The stone is a perfect size and though I wish the band was a bit thicker, I paired it with a thin diamond accented band and it sparkles so beautifully . The aquamarine is a pale pale blue that draws the eye but remains understated and easily worn everyday which I have done since receiving it in the mail 4 weeks ago.

Well done! This ring is a stunner. Purchased for our daughter. Light color saturation on the aquamarine. This ring has: Substantial ring shaft / high quality workmanship in the mounting / small, but brilliant diamond accents / classic design that will be appreciated for generations.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? More brilliant in person

I love the design of this ring but unfortunately the stone color was too light which made me think it would be mistaken for a diamond. Since I'm about to get engaged, I didn't want people guessing if this was "the ring". Other complaints are 1. the diamonds in the band are milky white and 2. the band is extremely skinny - to the point that I felt like if I banged it a little it would bend or break. The size of the center stone is good though and the design is very pretty so if you don't mind an almost clear stone and a super thin band, this ring may work for you.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? thinner band
- How accurate was the sizing? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair
I love that the band is thin and dainty, and it fits perfect! As for the stone color, it is very light. I read the reviews and expected it though, I like a lighter aquamarine. If you look at the stone from the top, it almost looks like it has no color. But when you look at it from the side or at an angle, you can really tell it's an aquamarine. If you want a true blue stone though, I noticed they sell the same ring style but in blue topaz.
I know for *** you can't expect the diamonds to be perfect, but these diamonds were very milky and the aquamarine was clear. It was almost impossible to find a blue tint to the stone at all. That being said the style of the ring is lovely and runs true to size. If the aquamarine was bluer I would have kept the ring and lived with the milky diamonds. The stone was very shiny and large!
I love aquamarines and I'm always on the lookout for an aquamarine ring. This ring was so inexpensive I thought I'd be taking a chance on the quality but I was pleasantly surprised to discover this really is a cute petite ring. I wear it as a pinky ring and I often get people mistaking it for a diamond. It's that pretty and sparkles in the light. The stone is extremely pale on mine but that's fine. Aquamarines do vary across a broad spectrum but I feel this was fairly represented. I'm very happy with this purchase! Very nice dainty ring. It would make an excellent first ring for a teen or preteen.
I purchased this ring as a semi-cheap gift for myself (this is my birthstone). I was beyond surprised at the quality of this ring. When I first opened the box the ring looked like it could have cost thousands. It sparkled and shined brilliantly! The band is thin but feels very strong. Overall, if you are thinking of purchasing this ring, I would not hesitate. This ring is gorgeous, not too big of a stone on the finger, and looks stunning.
