OMG I can't believe how much more beautiful this ring is in person than in these pictures. They really don't do it justice. It sparkles and is absolutely lovely, exactly what I was looking for. Everyone that sees it is in awe of it's beauty. It sits a little higher than the pictures make it seem and is not as wide as they seem either, but it's exactly perfect. I was a little nervous when we bought it online as it's a huge purchase to make without seeing it, but I couldn't find any one anywhere that I liked nearly as much. It looks vintage and classy. The one warning I'll give is that the center diamond smudges easily, but I imagine any black diamond with such a flat face would do the same. Since you can't tell anywhere on this page, the jeweler is ***** Jewelers and they have been around since 1979 and offer a lifetime warranty on the ring nothing to be scared of here in an online purchase. You won't regret it at all. (BTW, no one answered my posted question about whether it contained nickel or could be made in another metal, but we just took a chance and ordered it - I've been wearing it for 3 days now and haven't had any reaction at all).
I was nervous about buying black diamond ring online, sight unseen. I am so happy with it though. It's great quality and has a lot of shine for a black ring. It doesn't sparkle like a white diamond, but I didn't want that. I think this is a very elegant ring. I was so glad the stone is certified and comes with a certificate. It makes me feel more confident that I have a genuine diamond. I couldn't be happier.
