I ordered this ring b/c it was my favorite color of all the birthstones,I was pleased when it arrived.It came in a zip-locked bag not in a nice ring box! I was very disappointed! The size of the ring is a for my right ring finger is to large so if you order this ring for example I ordered a size 6 I need a size 5. Overall,the blue is like the color of the ocean in key west in Florida not a clear blue but a combination of light blue & a deep blue color:) it does need a lot of cleaning or it looks cloudy. When it's clean it really sparkles in the light & I get a lot of complements on it. You can wear this ring with casual clothes or if I go out on the town with my husband. I thought that a 10 carat ring would be too big since I'm 5'2 & 110lbs. & it's not at all. I compared it to my 9 carat wedding ring & this ring seems to be smaller than 10 carats. I would recommend this to a friend to buy!! I had to take some points away b/c of the size & the up keep of this ring.
This ring reminds me of the ocean. It is made really well and the stones are beautiful.
I have a friend who absolutely loves abalone! She mentioned to me that she would love a ring in abalone, so when I saw this one I bought it for her. She was very happy with it and says she always receives comments about it whenever she wears it. Also, the price was very affordable to give as a gift.
