My husband and I bought this ring for my anniversary band. Its a fraction less brilliant than the picture shows. Especially in regular light. But it really shines and sparkles better than anything else i could find. Is very eye catching and iv gotten lots of complements. its hard to tell from the pic but its actually a line of diamonds across the center of the band and diamonds inset in ovals on the sides. It is very unusual you wont find anything else like it. i ordered it a half size bigger because i didnt want to take the chance of it being to small but i could have ordered my regular size.
