I searched online and in stores to find this type of semi-eternity band. Hubby was reluctant to purchase online, but now he's happy that I'm happy. Stones are sparkly, and the prong settings seem strong. Only 4 stars because the prongs at each end are rough - a little hard to get used to when my fingers press against them on each side. I'm considering having a jeweler file them down a bit. Other than that, the ring is very nice and I do think it is a good price for the quality.
