I just received this ring in the mail today, two weeks late but I understand the stress on the postal service during holidays. Upon immediate inspection I quickly found many faults with this ring, most noticably, the color. It is definitely not the same color blue as the pic and I would even go a step further and say that calling the diamonds in this ring blue is an incredible overstatement. If I wanted a ring with emeralds I would have bought one. Looking past the incorrect color, the colored stones are very dark, almost cloudy at some angles and they are certainly not shiny. Also, the stones aren't set equally, there are crooked stones and stones that appear deeper than the rest. Finally there is silver plating "overspray" if I may use the term loosely. The silver plating is between some of the "blue" stones near the buckle. This is quite possibly the worst buy I have made, I can't believe I payed **** dollars for a ring that has gumball machine quality. I'll buy my next ring from one of those. Save yourself the time and money and do your jewelery shopping elsewhere.
