Looking for an engagement ring was a very daunting task for me- I wanted to find something simple and elegant and beautiful. My fiance actually pointed me to this particular ring, which I thought looked very nice and the setting showed the quality of the diamond better than other asscher-cut rings. That being said, I was still a little wary of making such a big and important purchase without having seen the actual ring with my own eyes. But I went out on a limb and wasn't disappointed. It looked so much better than even the pictures online- my fiance thinks it's perfect! Very good value for such a beautiful ring- 100% satisfied here!
