Overall this ring is very nice. The black diamonds are a nice touch for a mans ring in particular. I purchased this ring to complement my friend's silver watch with graphite grey colored face, which it does perfectly. I would prefer the diamonds to be a little closer together, but that is not a deal breaker. Ordered a 9.5 but sent it back for a size 9. If you are a purist, I would not order this as a wedding or engagement ring...it is a nice fashion ring.
