I picked this ring when my Bear finally said he wanted to get me a diamond ring. We have been together a long time but never a ring. This ring is MORE than worth the price and it arrived in literally 3 days! It was my Christmas present and I still cannot take my eyes off of it. It sparkles in sunlight like no ones business and is simply gorgeous. Yes the gold gets little tiny scratches but anyone who has ever owned gold should expect that. I believe jewelry takes on the character of the owner as they wear it so not a problem for me. The compliments I have gotten have ALL been highly favorable. I am thrilled with my ring. If you have been sitting on the fence trying to decide then get off it and purchase this ring. You won't be disappointed.
