This is definitely the most beautiful ring I have ever laid eyes on. The picture gives no indication of exactly how beautiful it is. It is a very large ring and with the band on easily takes up the entire lower part of the finger. I was hesitant about ordering a ring on line, but since it could be returned, decided to go ahead. When the ring was delivered I was blown away by how beautiful it is. Out of curiosity, I took the ring to a local jeweler to have it appraised and I am happy to say it appraised for almost $2000 dollars more than we paid!!!
