My fiance gave me this ring in October 2010 and I still can not stop looking at it. I still recieve many comments on it , even from the same people over and over again! I can not express the beauty of it. I can say it reminds me of a ring that a princess would have in a fairy tale. It is raised high but that makes it even better for eveyone to see just how outstanding this ring is! Anyone who wears this ring will be more than satisfied and will not be able to stop staring at it.
