The ring arrived in a gift box, and with a certification card to prove it's authenticity. It's very pretty and sparkly and had a higher color rating than what the website stated. When we inspected it, we could not see any imperfections, even under minor magnification. The band on the picture isn't very good..it looks like bad quality craftsmanship. But, it's actually very nice and polished beautifully. I would totally recommend this ring. It's a great price, and is beautiful. And with a full refund if dissatisfied, you really can't go wrong.
