This ring is exactly what I expected. The color is just as the photo shows- rich brownish red. The weight of the ring is good too - does not feel light and cheap. It also looks more expensive than what I paid for it. I have thin fingers (sz5) and was worried about the bulk - but it fits well and looks good on - not overpwering yet still makes a statement. Many people (strangers too) have complimented on this ring - they love the uniqueness, color and setting. I'm very happy with this ring and if you like something a little different, this ring is a perfect addition to your jewelry collection. Enjoy!
