The ring was absolutely beautiful, even more beautiful than the picture. It is rated a G color for the main stone and it looks almost colorless, it is a very elegant ring but that looks pretty expensive. the appraisal itself it was for over $9000 and the price we got it for was phenomenal for the value of the ring. At first i was very septic for purchasing a ring before seeing it but i thing it was a great decision and purchase. highly recommend overstock on expensive jewelry.
