i upgraded to this ring from a solid gold band. I absolutely love it. It took me a little while to get used to the height of it because it is a pretty tall setting for a band, but it's very contemporary and I get lots of compliments on it. I love to look at it! The diamonds are a very good size and I think it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is. It is incredibly sparkly even when it gets dirty. My only concern with it is that I think one of the diamonds is a bit cloudier than the others, but the clarity is all-around good. My husband says he can't see the difference. It is an awesome ring and I'm very happy with it.
