Ok. I'm an intermediate-level jewelry gal, and people who think this ring is going to look as big as the picture are crazy. You have to consider how much 1/4 carats is and think about what that will look like on your finger.I was looking for something small and cute for every day wear. I have sorta big hands so I bought 2 to stack just in case. If you're deciding on whether you should get 1 or 2, just get one- unless you're getting them to stack with your engagement ring.One of the rings were cloudy, as other people mentioned. And yes, you can see it if you look at it closely. But remember what you are paying for! I once bought a ring at Macys on sale for $500 and one of the diamonds had popped out after 3 weeks and it was a nightmare. So I give this 5 stars for the value of getting more than what you're paying for.
