My son asked me to help him pick a ring for his then girlfriend now fiance. He knew she wanted white gold and a princess cut diamond, they are young and just starting out and he did not have alot of money. We read the reviews and decided this one was it - well she loves it. The ring is so much prettier in person, the band is substantial and the diamond is perfect. I would recommend this ring without reservation. He told her they could upgrade later, she says no way, she loves this one.
