I am a graduate student getting married in August. My fiance and I are on a tight budget, and we chose this ring as my engagement ring. I have had it for several months now, and I absolutely love it! I am in law school, and apparently go to school with women who have fiances that have more money than mine, who have huge 2 carat or more diamond engagement rings, but mine sparkles with the best of them! It catches the light so beautifully. I don't usually wear jewelry, so this delicate and understated ring is perfect for me. I constantly get compliments from people about how it shines!
