My fiancé and I purchased this ring in January of 2007. We were both college students and wanted to use our money wisely. This ring was very contemporary, simple and reasonably priced. When I first wore the engagement ring by itself, I kept telling myself that it was nice and simple, but it will look better with the wedding band. After our wedding, it did look better as a set, but I now wish that we had spent more time looking for a much better ring for the same price. The ring only sparkles under halogen lighting and the main diamond is very cloudy. I wish I could feel better about this set considering the price.
