my boyfriend and i are very young but he wanted to get something to show his love. he got this for me for Christmas 2010 and i LOVE it. ive has the ring for awhile and while you wouldnt expect it to sparkle a lot, in the right lighting its like fire (we went to the movies and the lights there made it really intense). its small, really cute and worth showing off. im so happy with my ring and i love it so much. i almost never take it off.
