Wanted to love this but the stones were so light, like a pale washed out green. Like a mint tint color, rather than the bright Kelly green shown on the photos. It doesn't do the piece justice with stones that light, since it isn't a huge piece it feels like the color just makes it fade into the background. I bought the ring too, and had the same problem. Even super on sale at like 269 it didn't feel worth it to keep it. I loved the design so much, I even considered keeping it and replacing it with actual green emeralds, but at this price I can't justify that.
