I purchased this ring and two other sapphire anniversary bands. Of all three, this is by far the most substantial band in terms of width and weight. However, the disappointment is in the simulated stones. The "diamonds" do not catch the light or sparkle at all and the "sapphires" are a very washed out, pale blue. It's too bad because the price was so reasonable, but in this case, the price does reflect the quality, or lack there of and I'm afraid I'll end up returning this. If you do purchase the ring, keep in mind that because the band is fairly wide, you may need to order a half size up.
