My husband actually chose this set in advance of a cruise, as we didn't want to chance bringing our actual rings and run the risk of either damaging or losing them. Right out of the box, the quality is impressive. You would truly never guess that this is a substitute or isn't "real" in any sense. The center stone isn't gaudy or overwraught, especially when you compare to some of the other / larger sets available on this site and others (read: a center stone that is a 10 carat equivalent is going to look ostentatious no matter what). Because it's platinum over sterling, tarnish is less of a factor. Granted, I've not owned this set for long, but it held up amazingly well in the ocean air, sea water, and some extremely active shore excursions. Even after all that, it still looks brand spanking new. It's very classy and elegant. One thing that you can't really tell from the images here is that the wedding ring and engagement ring are exact duplicates of each other, with the addition of the center high-prong engagement stone mounted on the engagement ring (meaning the channel setting on the engagement ring runs the length underneath the very high center stone - it's not segmented). I'd absolutely recommend it to others and would choose this set again.

First off, the box it came in through the mail was really cute. Wasn't expecting it. Second, looking at the ring itself was just beyond gorgeous. The picture really did it no justice. Even being a simple ring, it sparkles and flashes in any light to get everyone's attention. I love it. Definitely worth it.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? This ring was so much more beautiful than the image made it look.
- How accurate was the sizing? Sizing was a little big but was still perfect and comfortable.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality is amazing.
First, this ring is absolutely gorgeous. That said, it just didn't last long. I ordered this set, along with the three year replacement warranty, back in July. I just sent it in last week (Jan 16) for repair or replacement. The stones still look great, but the metal shows a lot of wear, it is scratched and it appears that the outer coating is coming off. I'm just glad I thought to purchase the warranty to go with it, I'd have been even more disappointed otherwise. Great buy for the price (It was lower when I bought it, at $116) but not worth it without the warranty.
Buy this ring if you like a pretty set. I happened to buy the only size left on sale (larger) Be sure you order your correct ring size, which will be accurate. If you order larger or smaller than your true ring size, you'll spend alot of money resizeing because all the stones will have to be reset and/or tighened. My jeweler says hundreds more..just saying. I ended up with too large of a set. I gave it to a friend.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Nice at any distance.
- How accurate was the sizing? good fit
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Well detailed metalwork in both rings, nice setting, believable size.
I bought as a replacement set to my ring I actually purchased from Overstock 5 years ago. I have a lot of confidence in the products of Overstock. Great buy.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very beautiful set. It looks more real in the pictures than in person. Sill not extremly obvious.
- How accurate was the sizing? Size was fine.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality
This ring looked beautiful and just what I was looking for. I received the package and with great anticipation, I tore into the packaging and opened the box. How disappointing to find a much less than acceptable ring set. The "stone" looks too plastic and white to be real...an obvious fake...no sparkle at all and the small pieces set into the channel look like rhinestones just glued in. The platinum over sterling ring looks plastic. I will say that the sizing is spot-on.
I was very excited when I first saw this ring online because I thought for something that isn't real, it looked like the real deal. But that was wishful thinking. The pictures for this ring set are far much better online than in person. The pictures look like that set is real in all sense and the set you get is a poorly knock off/copied version. I was very disappointed with the rings. The center stone also sits a lot higher than depicted in the pictures. I also got it because the reviews were good except for a few. And I guess those few were right on. It was very disappointing to see a made in China tag on the ring because it just looks it-quickly mass produce, very low quality. But for what you paid for I guess that should be no surprise? But it is rather spendy for something that is fake and looks it. It honestly looks like something from a gum ball machine. I don't know if this was the case for anyone else, but mine was not that polish looking, rather dull and flat. The setting itself looks poorly put together. Also, my invoice that came with the ring did not state that it was platinum over silver at all. It just said sterling silver. Overall, if you are trying to pass the set as real for any reason, I'm sorry to say it looks fake. From very far away it will ok, but up close or too much time spent looking at it and you'll know it's fake. I don't think it's worth the price for a fake. There are better made fakes out there for a lot less. And if you like it for just costume jewelry, take a pass. You're better off getting something that is at least a major brand. I don't recommend this set to anyone unless you want a fake set that looks fake and don't ever plan on getting something REAL in the future.
I am pleased with this set of rings. The quality is above average, the "diamonds" look real, the setting is of good quality and I have actually recommended this set to a friend of mine who lost her wedding ring, as a replacement. However, the "diamonds" are smaller than they appear in the photos which was a little disappointing but I still really like the set and intend to keep it and wear them daily. I have read some reviews on here about this product in which people are complaining that the finish is wearing off, the rings are losing their luster, etc. One word about costume jewelry, which is what this set of rings is, you cannot wear them all the time. You should never wear them in the bath or shower or while doing the dishes. You shouldnt go swimming with your rings on, etc. Costume jewelry is really not meant to last forever, but it will last a very long time and retain it's original beauty if you take good care of it and that means keeping it out of water.
I love me some rings and was a little apprehensive about this purchase with so many mixed reviews. Once I got the ring though, I was thrilled! It is beautiful. Just big enough to show off the sparkle, but not too big as to look fake. And it does not look fake! I've had many compliments and even had one person give it a thorough inspection to "grade" it. She had no idea it was a CZ and was really surprised when I told her so.
I was looking for a ring as a stand-in for my wedding ring while it gets worked on, from time to time. I like that this ring doesn't look gaudy and that is is of good quality. Typically anything I wear that isn't white gold turns my fingers green -- sterling silver, included. This ring, since its plated in platinum stood the test! I was so excited. The best bonus is that I always have my hands in water and this ring shows no signs of wear. I highly recommend this ring!
This ring is beautiful!! It shines and look just like the real thing! I had a real one just like it and lost it. This one is a perfect replica of it! It really shines when you wash ur hands and when the sun catches it. Thanks so much for a awesome product!!!

My wife has lost a few wedding sets over the years and dreaded the notion of spending a lot on another set. I bought her this for Christmas and she couldn't believe I spent so much. I told her repeatedly that I didn't spend much at all but she didn't believe that either. It's a beautiful set and she loves it. And if she loses it, oh well, I'll buy her another.
I received the set last night - 5 days earlier than was stated. I opened it up and was thrilled with it. It is about as close to my original wedding set as I can get. Unfortunately a year or so ago I was diagnosed as being allergic to gold. Yes, gold, not the stuff mixed in it but the actual gold. I was told not to wear any gold jewelry (it was making me ill). So, I have beautiful gold and diamond jewelry that I can no longer wear! Anyway, I saw this and thought I'd try it. I'm glad I did. It really is beautiful and very realistic. The center diamond is not too large (looks like about a carat) and fits well. I hope the finish lasts for a while. For the price I can afford to replace it if it gets too tarnished. I highly recommend this set.
I just got it today and I'm not going to wear it right away so I can't say how the overall durability will be but for the initial viewing of it, I'd say it's worth the price. It's a little bit smaller than I would have liked but I was pleased with it. Let's just hope the "prettiness" of it lasts.
Received my ring in the mail and was so excited to see it after reading the reviews. It was horrible quality, already tarnished in areas and looked completely fake! I even showed it to multiple people and they too said how fake and low quality it was. Will not be buying again!!
