The ring was gorgeous. I had some reservations about buying such an important item from overstock but this ring could have cost a few thousand dollars elsewhere. I'm a college student with very little money and all the jewelry stores wanted upwards of $2000 for nice rings. I found this ring on Overstock and the pictures do not do it justice. My girlfriend (now fiancee) was ecstatic. I would definitely reccommend this piece to anybody who is looking for a beautiful engagement ring that can't, or doesn't want to pay thousands of dollars in mark-up because the ring they wanted came from *****, ***, etc. GREAT RING!!!!
