I was very pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this ring was! It is so much prettier than the picture can show. I'm an avid jewelry collector, and this is a substantial piece of jewelry for the price. It is very good quality and has alot of sparkle! The only thing negative I can say is the sizes do run a bit smaller. I'm a size 6, and it's a bit snug, a 6 1/2 would be perfect, but half sizes are not offered.
