I just received this ring as an engagement ring. It is very beautiful and elegant. The picture does not do it justice and it is more feminine than it looks in the picture as well. I wanted something different instead of the usual diamond. We looked at so many different places without success and I could not ask for a more perfect ring. The stones are of good quality and size. I can't wait to get the band with the black diamonds to go with it. That will really set it off.
