My fiance proposed to me Easter Sunday with this ring and I was in awe when I saw this ring. Although the clarity and color are rated in the average-range, they are actually much clearer and white than pictured. I have had so many compliments on this ring; nearly every one of them has taken one look at it and said that it is stunning and he did I good job. I couldn't agree more. I have been wearing it for only two days now, and I cannot help but stare at it and smile. It is absolutely gorgeous!
