What an absolutely gorgeous ring this was. After looking at every possible option for a beautiful engagement ring this was one of her very favorites among several. She didn't know she was getting it but then I melted her heart when I put it on her finger. Absolutely gorgeous. The presentation, the look, the fit, the brilliance, the eye catching design and absolutely everything about this ring was to die for.
Then heartbreak. That beautiful center amethyst stone fell out and got lost the second day she wore it. No excuse for this lack of quality control. Although QVC offered to credit our account there were no rings left. I had seen reviews on other rings from other people about lost stones but hoped it was a tiny percentage or fraction of the total inventory. You just can't believe what it does to your confidence when it happens to you. Sent it back. Not sure if I will do business with QVC again. It must be true. You get what you pay for although the original MSRP on this ring was $265 I would have thought that this would not happen to us. I am sure the public will not Be reading this review as this ring is sold out and no longer offered. Buyer beware. I would have given this 0 stars had it been an option because I have nothing but a bad memory and then had to pay shipping.

This ring sits high off the finger and is bigger than I normally like. Despite this, I've fallen in love with the ring. And it's surprisingly comfortable! I always imagined high-sitting rings clanking into things and being a general nuisance. Not this ring! The coloring is beautiful and I'm so happy to own this. At times, the garnets can look dark but they're beautiful in decent lighting.
I've washed my hands with this on a few times and although it's not obvious, I think the black rhodium on the garnet is coming off. Rhodium plating comes off easily, so if you buy this ring, try to be gentle to keep it looking as gorgeous as it does all the time. I recommend taking the ring off before hand washing. Take care not to lose it if you do so! Maybe the fingers next to the ring are also rubbing off the plating, but I suspect it's the hand washing that's doing that. But I'm so happy with this ring, it gets a five star rating regardless.

The cut, color, clarity of amethyst is wonderful. It really sparkles in any light. The garnet is a bit hard to discern, but obvious under bright light. This ring would be perfect for the Red Hat ladies (red/purple).
