I got this for my girlfriend for our 2 year anniversary (May '08). It was a promise ring so I did not want to go broke after purchasing one. I chose this one because I knew she like 3 stoned rings and the color and clarity and everything was better than average. I ordered a size 5, but she's a 4.5. You can easily get this re-sized to a 4.5 at a local jeweler. If you're not in a hurry to purchase this product, wait for promotional codes. My girlfriend wears her ring everyday and she loves it very much. For a future engagement, she wants something similar to this ring, but of course much larger. My purchase date was May 2008.
