I received this ring for an anniversary gift to wear with my 3/4 carat solitaire. It is beautiful and looks great with the solitaire. We had it appraised and the color and claiity are exactly as advertised. The retail value listed is slightly less - but not much less than advertised. Not a concern for me. It is a great bargain. I was a little concerned about the width of the ring , but is is very comfortable and easy to wear. I'm glad I choose this ring over some others offered at Overstock - it's exactly what I wanted.
