"Just what i was looking for. "
I love this ring. It shipped out quick and I received it within a week or so. Its beautiful and fits perfectly. My only trepidation is that there's a tiny hole in the back, beneath the stone, which will allow water and gunk to get in, but will prove a challenge to clean. Great price. Very nicely made. I will order from here, again.
