This ring is absolutely amazing for the price. They are high quality gems that are quite beautiful. *Things to note* -The sizes do seem to be of the general ring standard. -Getting ANY black diamond will be different than a white diamond. It shows finger prints/smudges (you're not really supposed to touch the diamond with your finger anyway) and does not sparkle like a white diamond does. However, I feel that this particular ring has the perfect balance of sparkle because of the dual colors of diamonds. -The raised black diamond has a darker metal than the rest of the white gold ring. -The raised setting has corners that are not rounded. This will make it difficult to rest your head on your fist and also will scratch. If you have small children, be careful with ANY ring with corners or sharp edges. You may scratch your children inadvertently and you will more than likely feel terrible about it. If you enjoy black diamonds, give it a try! My fiance's parents told him not to get this but I LOVE it!!
