I was so disappointed when I got this ring. I had ordered this same ring with an ascher cut stone in the middle and had to return it because the center stone was very dark. I decided to try the princess cut stone instead. The ring itself is nice and seemed good quality; however, the center stone was not. I worked in a jewelry store for quite a while, so I am familiar with diamond grading. I know that many, many stones have black carbon spots (especially in this grade of a stone)...that is common. However, this stone had a large carbon "chunk" right in the center on the top of the stone...it was VERY noticable. I could hold the ring at arms-length and still see the black spot in the center stone! I couldn't believe they would put a stone like that in an engagement ring. It was the only black spot in the entire stone...but it was a HUGE one for that size of a stone. I can't imagine anyone feeling good about giving that ring to their future wife and have a good feeling about it. I was very disappointed and couldn't mail it back soon enough. After two tries with Overstock, I went to a local jewelry store and paid more for a ring we felt proud of. I had read good reviews on both rings, so maybe I just had the worst luck in the world, but neither ring was acceptable.
