When I received this ring in the mail I was so excited! It arrived within three days of placing my order...way to go Overstock.com!! However, my excitement was short-lived. When I opened the package, I found a very cheap looking paper-board ring box. The ring was just as unattractive. The diamonds were like little flecks or scraps of glass and the black diamonds in particular had no luster or shine. The black metal portion looked like it had been drawn or painted onto the silver by an eight-year-old. The black color literally spilled over onto the silver at multiple places. The inside edges of the ring band were not well-rounded and that made the ring uncomfortable to wear. The silver was not a heavy weight and it felt like it would bend or crush if you tried to grip a doorknob on a heavy door too tightly (or some other simple normal task that requires a solid grip). I was really looking forward to this item. The black and silver interwoven diamond pattern held special symbolism for me, but, alas, I was very disappointed. And, needless to say, I will be returning this item. Maybe there is another that will suit me better...one can only hope.
