I've had this ring for 26 months. I was a little disappointed at first because the center stone is set crooked but it's not noticeable unless you really stare at it. My jeweler noticed the inclusions (imperfections) in the center stone right away; it is a little cloudy but he said that the smaller stones were very good. 3 weeks ago one of the smaller stones fell out when I placed the ring on my bathroom sink but was less than $50 to repair. Overall, I think that the value for what you pay is very good; however, if you're looking for quality, this isn't the ring for you.
