The ring is absolutely beautiful. I wanted something a little more interesting than a simple solitaire, but not too complicated, and I'd say this is perfect. I liked the design pictures online and think it is even better in person. I appreciate the amount of work that Whiteflash puts in to evaluating the diamond selection and providing relevant information and images. Objective comparison may only go so far in selecting a stone, but it sure does something to appease the engineer in me.
