I have been wearing this ring for over a month. I absolutely love it. I have purchased several rings from Overstock.com and this is my favorite. It is my birthstone and it actually looks blue (sometimes sapphires of lesser quality look so dark you think they are black). It is large without being too flashy, in my opinion. It does sit up pretty high but I haven't snagged it on anything. I love the marquis shape...I think it elongates your finger. Doesn't hesitate to buy this.
