After researching rings for 8 months, we purchased this ring to match my 1 1/2 ctw diamond ring that I got last year for our anniversary as an upgrade for my wedding set. This ring matches perfectly. We had both rings appraised for our homeowner's insurance and this one appraised at $1395. Our jeweler was amazed when I told him where and how much we paid for this ring. This ring is definately worth every penny. We also purchased the 4 year protection plan just in case. You can't go wrong wih this ring.
