When I opened the package I could not believe my eyes!! The beauty of this ring was unbelievable! I have a 3 carat ring that appraised for $18,000.00 and to me only a professional could tell the difference! I have already placed a second order. I love it so much I wear it anywear, church, out to dinner and even Walmart! So far I cannot find any bad qualities. The ring I am waiting for is white gold so that is very different for me, I have always worn yellow gold.
