pictures on this site used to describe the ring cannot be compared to the actual ring. it is absolutely gorgeous, i would recommend this site to anyone getting ready for any special occasion. service is also excellent. i needed this band in size 7 and they immediately added sizes 7 and 7 1/2 to their drop-down menu after my email. quality, price, and service is exceptional~! i also took advantage of the survey, and received the ring with next day delivery service.
