I bought this ring last year for my daughters Sweet 16 after much searching for an appropriate birthstone ring I found this and thought I'd take the chance as there was much positive feedback. I was soooo happy when it came it was gorgeous and of course she LOVED it. I thought it was an awesome value, being her age I didn't want to go overboard with something that she (hopefully not) may loose so this is the perfect start to her jewelry collection. I plan on buying her birthstone items for each significant events in her life...next up high school graduation...I will be looking on overstock! I did have to have it resized to...but thankfully my jeweler did it no charge...great value.
