It doesn't matter what this ring is made of --it is beautiful. It has a sophisticated vintage charm that works well for every day sparkle or out on the town bling. The ring fits comfortably on my finger and fits true to size. The detailed gallery and understated bezel setting enhance the "real" factor. No one knows it isn't a diamond set in white gold and I don't disabuse them of the notion. The ring was at my house in two days and I have been wearing it ever since. This is my second ring purchase from overstock. I love shopping with overstock because I can always find small beautiful rings in my size (5). This ring is WELL worth the money...I spend more on coffee in a week.
