This ring came exactly as described and is beautiful. I purchased it was a wedding band to compliment an everyday engagement ring I wear. My original set it very fragile so this was an economic alternative to replacing the set. I actually love this ring so much that I don't feel it's a downgrade. I feel just as proud to wear it as I do my 1 original carat eternity band. This band is about 2mm thick and the stones are bright and clear, even under indoor lighting. You can definitely see the stones individually, they do not look like chips. They are set low enough into the ring that I don't anticipate any stones falling out. The rose colored metal perfectly matches the metal on the engagement ring I purchased from a popular jewelry store. I have a very active job where I use my hands a lot in and out of water, and there has been no damage to the stones or metal so far (I have been wearing it for about a week). It sparkles a great deal and is not too small. It compliments my three stone engagement ring so well that I am considering purchasing a second band to go on the other side. It looks precious even alone. I highly recommend this ring as a sweet sentimental gift or a wedding band.
