This ring is really a surprise. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but now I find it is actually one of my favorites. It has stayed very nice. The finish is very pretty and even the "stones" are nice enough. It gives a very nice presentation for a larger piece. It's showy.
I really loved this ring until one of the stones fell out. Now it's just not the same. i still wear it. The missing stone is near the front, but unless someone grabs my hand for a really close look, it isn't that apparent. Nevertheless, I was disappointed because it was a really classy looking ring until I lost that stone. It wasn't due to any extra wear and tear either.
I purchased this ring for myself, but my mom (who was skeptical before about "fool's gold") actually begged me to give it to her! I bought a second one in a size bigger to wear on my right hand (which is a full size bigger than my left). This ring is true to size.
