i guess this is a case where you get what you pay for. I really dont know much about diamonds, but i wanted something nice to wear as a more modern version of my 22 year old wedding band.Overstock has never let me down, and I mean to tell you I order a TON of things with the O. I really wasnt sure how substantial a 1/2 TDW ring would be,but I decided to take a chance. The ring was delivered fast , though I would have thought something a little nicer than a plain white carboard box would have been appropriate, especially if being given as a gift. anyway, the ring is "cute" but is not subsbtatial enough to serve the purpose i was hoping it would. I really dont want to send it back and be rightback in square one again, so I am considering purchasing a diamond solatair that would compliment the band and make it seem a little more appropriate for a career woman who is in her 40s. If a dainty ring is what youre looking for, it might suit your needs just fine, but if you are looking for something to be taken seriously, I have to say that i would pass on this ring.
