I was married 2 weeks ago and chose this ring as my wedding band. It's not to match a set, just to wear alone. I wanted a band that had bling, but was low profile enough to wear everyday & not scratch my future babies! On the sides where there are no diamonds, the wall of Gold is beautiful. I have received tons of compliments on it already. The diamonds shine enough for others to tell they are there, and not filagree or pave like others have mentioned. This ring also comes with certification. I will definately pass this down to my children, it's timeless.
