For the price, this is a ring which will definitely get attention from across the room. I didn't know about white sapphires before shopping at Overstock, and this ring was the best in terms of "bling" value for the money. In my case my to-be-fiancee was aware of the ring prior to purchase, so I'd hesitate to get this for someone unsuspecting (definitely don't call it a diamond, because it isn't). However, it's a very pretty ring, and the wedding band comes with. Shipping was very quick and with enough protection to avoid damage (which I've had happen before).
