OMG! Where do I begin? I was waiting with baited breath for this wonderful ring to arrive. You know when you order something online, especially something expensive, and you can't try it on? I was looking for something stunning. I wanted a ring that you could see from five feet away...lol. But it had to look real, which it is and it does! It was a birthday gift, picked out by me, from my husband. LOL! The day it arrived I literally gasped as I put it on my finger. It's unbelievable and so sparkly! We went to a surprise birthday party for me that evening and all of my friends passed the ring around and said how beautiful it is. I almost thought about sending it back and getting something slightly smaller, because it IS a STATEMENT piece! "Can you believe I even thought that?"... Get it if you are thinking about if... It's an heirloom piece that I will pass down to my daughter. It's gorgeous!
