I was sitting at the phone, while my girlfriend of 3 years opened up her Christmas gift..that being this ring. Needless to say I didn't get the response I had hoped for, that I had expected in reading all the reviews for this item. The diamonds were cloudy, and the center stone seemed to look like it had a crack inside it which when light refracted inside the stone, it looked as though there was a hole where the diamond should have been sitting. Theres a possibility that maybe with it being Christmas time, a mass amount of rings were shipped, and maybe quality control became a factor, but in the same respect...because it was Christmas time, that made all the more important that the ring live up to the hype. This was a very embarrassing experience.
