I debated buying a ring online but after doing a lot of research I found everyone claiming that you pay way too much in a jewelry store unless you are very good at haggling them down. I saw this ring, read the reviews, and took a chance, knowing I had 30 days to return. I received the ring 2 days later, BIG PLUS! When I got the ring my first thought was...beautiful. Tons of sparkle and beautifully polished white gold, must be platinum bonded because it was a pure silver color. I thought at first it was a little smaller then I wanted but once I asked her to marry me and I put it on her finger it was not as small as I thought! She absolutely loves it. Before I gave it to her I went and had it appraised and here are the results:18k white gold (not 14), platinum bondedColor - G center stone, H both side stones.90 total carat weight (since the diamonds are already set you cannot get the true weight, they rely on measurements and calculations. She told me this could differ by .05 either way)TOTAL APPRAISED VALUE = $2970Overall --- extremely pleased!!!!
