I love this ring, and I have a drawer full of real diamonds set in solid gold. The chocolate diamonds go with every kind of outfit and I am giving it to myself for Christmas. I had purchased a similar ring from a home jewelry party that was not solid sterling which did not hold up is why i went searching for a solid sterling version. When I saw this one online, I knew it was my replacement and I was not disappointed. runs true to size. I bought an 8 to wear on my pointer.
