The center stone is gorgeous. My fiance proposed to me this weekend. He first ordered the ring and had it taken to a local jeweler because the basket was slightly off center. He also chose to replace the diamonds that surround the stone to slightly brighter diamonds. It came out perfectly. It did cost him an additional *** to get the ring just right....but after HIS changes, the ring appraised for ***. Prior to his changes the ring appraised at ***. The jeweler told him the center diamonds was a good rating, and clarity great for it's grade. Overall, I am THRILLED. IT is very pretty.
