This ring is exactly as seen in the picture. The stones look large and are truly colorless in appearance. No inclusions are apparent to the naked eye. It is a far better buy than anything I have seen for the price among other off-price retailers. I actually returned a 3-stone ring to Overstock prior to ordering this ring; it was smaller than the picture led one to believe and just did not have the quality appearance of this ring. The shank is sturdy and there are no sharp edges anywhere on the ring. It sparkles and looks like much higher graded stones. I couldn't be more pleased with the purchase.
