I looked around at local jewelers and found a ring that I liked but did not purchase it because the purchase price was too high. So then I looked around on-line and found this ring that is the same color, cut, clarity, and carat size for a much better price. The diamonds have no visible inclusions (without a jewelers loop) and appear clear in color to the naked eye. The diamonds are well matched in color and size, so there are no jarring irregularities to the ring. It is absolutely beautiful and the sizing was consistent with my known ring size. The band does, however, taper down in size to 2mm wide and just under 2mm thick at the back (it is still thicker than other rings I own). It is also not a comfort band. If you are hard on rings, you may want to consider this in your decision. Otherwise, this ring is an excellent value, relative to other rings that I have seen at my local jewelry stores. I would highly recommend this ring.
