I had been looking at this ring for literally for 6 months. It is not your traditional engagement ring. But it made me love it that much more. It is very modern with a hint of antque feeling. So once I realized that I was in love. This ring is person is nothing compared to the picture. It is beyond stunning. No to big and definetly not to small. I get people of all ages complimenting it, including men. I love it because of its beauty and fiance loves it because it looks like he spent thousands upon thousands for it and of course at the fact that I'm more than pleased. And trust me you will be too!!!
