The picture does not do this ring the justice it deserves. I originally wanted a "floating diamond", but this one is as close as you can get. I was worried about it at first, but my finacé bought it for the value and b/c I wanted the asscher cut. I feel like a princess every time I look at it, and others are simply amazed by it's beauty. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for that special ring for the girl of your dreams!
