I took a chance on this little band because of the other glowing reviews, and I'm glad I did. This is my first experience with black diamonds, and I could not have chosen a better piece to try them out! I am 6 feet tall and my hands are proportionate to my height. I got this ring in a size 9, and while it's understated, it also doesn't get lost on my hand. And let me tell you about the diamonds; these seven little stones pack a wallop! They sparkle in almost any light. This has quickly become one of my favorite every-day pieces. You will love this ring!
