Brilliance is the first word I can think of. Ths ring is absolutely beautiful in every way. I have a small dainty finger. I wear a 6.5. This ring doesn't look too small or big on my hand and I'm very satisfied with it It shines with or without light I've received SO MANY compliments on this ring. There's nothing cheesy about it. I highly recommend this ring for everyone. I must also compliment overstock for sending it so quickly! My husband ordered another ring less than a week before the wedding. It arrived 2 days before the wedding and I was surpised at the alter with a new ring. Although the wedding band itsself is a bit tiny, the whole thing looks amazing together! It looks exactly like the picture!
