My husband picked this ring for me. I'm not a fan of hearts, but it was a cute sentiment. I love princess cut diamonds. As to stone quality, I've had the ring looked at by a jeweler who stated that the center stone is near flawless, though the inclusions on the side stones are noticeable to the naked eye. The side stones look a bit cloudy, but still sparkle well. This isn't a jaw dropping ring, but it's dainty and very pretty and I think this price for this size and quality of diamonds is fair. I do get plenty of compliments on it.
