I picked this ring out as an my engagement ring. We had looked at rings at jewelers and had a really time finding one that was nice and that we could afford. At first I was against buying something this special online, but changed my mind and looked on overstock. I found this ring and really liked it. When I recieved it I fell in love. Sure the picture on here does magnify it, but if you read the description you should realized that it is OBVIOUSLY going to be smaller as it is only 1/2 carat not 3 carats. I laugh at the people who say they are disappointed in the size. It is gorgous!!! It really shines, especially in sunlight. The center sits up, but i dont mind it at all, it makes the ring stand out even more. I love this ring and would recommend it to anyone!! You can't beat the price either! Absolutely perfect for a couple on a budget!
