I was slightly skeptical after reading the reviews. It was either a 5 or a 1 for various reasons, but I took a chance and I couldn't be happier! The sparkle is wonderful, the sterling silver bright and perfect and the size was spot on. The photo really doesn't do the ring justice at all and the concerns some people had about the weight of the sterling silver doesn't seem to be a problem for me at all as it has a nice weight to it. A wonderful fashion ring and I love the little vintage touch it adds to my wardrobe!
