I had been looking at this ring online for months, loving and wanting it more each time I saw it. I do not usually indulge myself with this kind of luxury, but I'm so glad that I did. The ring is gorgeous, unique, and, yes, very sparkly, as so many others have stated. Normally, I would end up regretting such an unnecessary purchase, but not with this ring. (Of course it helped that my husband insisted on it.) I'm so glad to now be able to see it on my figure rather than on Macy's.com!
