I was looking for something that wasn't obnoxious or tacky. It was neither of those things so that was good. I was really excited to get this ring after reading the other reviews that eased my concerns and wanted to love it but... no such luck. I have pretty big hands and long fingers and it's still VERY bulky. My surrounding fingers have to move out of the way! It's also not as sparkly as I had anticipated. I don't expect it to look real from close up, but being brand new I thought it would sparkle more in sunlight and overhead lighting. The larger center band of stones could almost pass for silver from afar. Back to the drawing board.
