I was just proposed to today on 7/24/10 with this ring. I had suggested my fiance' purchase this but had no idea he would. Love, love, love the ring! It is beautiful and sparkles, so I just keep staring @ it. From the pic, you will not be able to tell that the center stone is a true princess cut, but it is a princess cut center stone. Unless you are professional jeweler you will never be able to tell the level of clarity and inclusion. It looks high rate. And what a great price! I've seen rings such as this one in retail stores for $5k.
