This is the first real diamond I've purchased, and my disappointment might stem directly from that inexperience. I think I took the wrong route of setting a price point and seeing how much (size) I could get for that amount. The second mistake was purchasing a diamond that I had not been able to see with my own eyes. I would certainly have purchased something else if I had been able to see it in person. The diamond was larger than I expected and I would have been much happier with a diamond half the size that had some real fire. That's not to say that this product is bad or misrepresented. I believe that the value was great when compared to other outlets of similar products. I was just really disappointed with the lack of luster and brilliance of the stone. The clarity and size of the diamond were represented in the description, so my inexperienced opinion is that a proper cut must be what's lacking here. As I understand it, the cut done accurately is what gives a diamond it's "fire." With the naked eye, the stone is not cloudy or even imperfect given the grade, but it just doesn't sparkle. You might get a glint or two as you turn it in the light, but surely nothing dazzling. Every diamond is different and I urge folks to consider my lack of knowledge in giving this review. For all I know this may be 100% typical and expected when a 1/3 carat diamond is offered at this price point. But...you can take it as an accurate reaction from a consumer who knows little to nothing about diamonds. My advice is to educate yourself before buying. It's your hard earned money, you want to be happy with your purchase. Personally, I would spend the same amount of money on a smaller, more brilliant diamond.
I purchased this for my wife for an anniversary gift. I was disappointed with how small it was. However, I don't have a good concept of carat weight as it pertains to actual, physical size. I returned it and purchased a 3/4 ct version elsewhere. If Overstock had had a similar one priced the same or similarly, I would not have hesitated to purchase it.
Very pretty. Diamond was abit smaller than I had thought it would be. But I wanted small, not gaudy. I was debating between the 1/3 carat and the 1/4 carat and am glad I went with the bigger one because I am sure the 1/4 would have been too small. Chain is not very substantial and the clasp is just a standard ring type. In other reviews it was stated that the necklace felt scratchy at the diamond. I did not find that to be true, this necklace is completely comfortable and you don't even feel it on. Diamond is very white and there are no flaws that can be detected by the naked eye. Also, this one sparkles quite abit. All in all, a good deal.
I was in love with this necklace as soon as I got it. It's gorgeous and for the price, well worth the buy! It's hard to believe this diamond was only 1/3 carat as it seemed bigger in person. I love white gold and felt the quality of this necklace was worth more than what I paid for. This is definitely a purchase I would make again
