I seached long and hard for the exact style ring I was intent on purchasing. I only found it at Overstock. After purchasing and receiving the ring I was unhappy with the quality of the I1-I2 grade diamonds. BUT....I called Overstock about this and they allowed me to send the ring back and have the I-grade diamonds upgraded to S-grade diamonds for an additional fee. In the end, it all worked out.
I've had this ring for 2 weeks and I've debated returning it almost every day. It is debatable whether the center stone can be considered gem quality. I was expecting flaws, because it is I1-I2, but the entire center stone is flawed from the center to two sides and unfortunately the flaws keep this stone from sparkling. The two side stones are what I expected with an I1-I2, some flaws, but they still sparkle. The smaller diamonds are of good quality, in fact they may be SI, because they sparkle and do not have any blemishes that I can see with my "naked" eye. The metal work is yet another disappointment. One side of the circle is actually an oval, and the gold that surrounds every stone in beads is melted in places, disorganized and just poor quality. The ring would be beautiful, in theory. I love the vintage look and the style, I just wish they had taken more care in creating the ring. I could forgive the fact that the diamonds are low quality, or the poor metal work if it had beautiful diamonds, but the fact that both are visible at a quick glance and even more so if the ring is stared at, moves me to return the ring. My ring is also missing 1 to 2 diamonds! I have a total of 39. Overstock says that there should be 40 total, but the way the description reads, it should have one .5 ct center stone and 40 additional stones at 1 ct. I understood this as 41 stones with TDW of 1.5 ct. I'm going to exchange this ring for the same ring, and maybe it will be of higher quality. I'll post again when I get it. Wish me luck ;)
This is a beautiful ring for someone on a budget... my Fiancé proposed to me with this ring, and it is beautiful. Although, the diamonds vary in color, and the center stone has a small carbon spot, and the stone is slightly yellow. Still, It shines beautifully, and I love it anyway, because it was a special gift that came from his heart.
