AffinityDiamond 1/4 ct tw Flower and Butterfly Ring, Sterling
Not a big diamond presence, but unique & nice
If you're looking for a big diamond presence, this isn't likely to be your favorite choice. Other reviewers mention it's more pave in color than in diamonds, and that's true. There's a lot of silver in this ring, though, and the design really IS unique. The blue butterfly stands out from the rest of the design. Unlike other reviewers, I found the flower and the leaves to be distinctive and noticeable with colored diamond accents that are obviously yellow and green diamonds; the colored diamonds are tiny, yet add some sparkle. It'd make a nice summery, fanciful, jewelry treat for yourself, but the packaging isn't suited to gift giving.
Love This Ring!!
My husband gave this ring to me for our fourth anniversary and I love it. I admit that the green and yellow diamonds are not as vivid as the photo but you can still see the green and yellow not to mention the beautiful blue butterfly.It's very different and artistic. Definitely not a cookie cutter ring.
I don't know why a few of you experienced the band turning black because it's supposed to be sterling silver. Keeping fingers crossed.
The picture of this ring shows very defined detail, however, when I received the ring, it looked like a blob of no distinction whatsoever. I sent this back.
Sorely Dissapointed !
I was so looking forward to my ring . But , when it got here , and I tore open the envelope, what a big disappointment ! It was so ugly . The most ugly I have seen in quite a while . The colors were very dark , and the diamonds were the same , dark and dull . Don't waste your money ladies , this one is going back .
I had really been looking forward to an Affinity multi-colored ring. But this is not the one for me. The design is pretty but the diamonds were dull with very little shine. Returned. The search continues.......
Nothing like the picture - but still interesting
The picture indicates a pave of diamonds...mostly it's a pave of color...in fact it's not quite even as colorful as the picture indicates. The blue is vivid, the gold and green? not so much. Mostly this ring is silver. But it's an interesting piece non the less. Very 'artsy'.
I like the idea of this ring, however, it is not clear. You really have to look hard to see the butterfly and the flowers. It does not stand out. I wore it one day and not one person even noticed, or if they did, they didn't say a word. I kept the ring because butterflys mean something to me. But, if I had seen it first, I would not have bought it. No clarity.
Wish I'd Read the Reviews First
This is the first time I've written a review. I've sent things back before but have not
been as disappointed as i was this time. I thought this was a new product, so I did not check reviews first. I couldn't agree more with the comments made re the quality of this ring. I was looking forward to receiving it since it was something unique and quite beautiful on tv. Unfortunately, the quality was horrible. It was my first purchase from the Affinity line and may be my last if this is what I can expect. I agree that the black diamonds in the butterfly were the ONLY thing that showed as promised. The yellow flower and green leaves were indistinguishable and looked like a couple of chips of colored stones thrown into a base metal that was cheap-looking or old and dirty.
Can't say how disappointed I was in this product.
I have bought all types of jewelry on QVC and the quality and craftsmanship have been very good. However, Quality Control missed this one. It never even made it to my finger. Most of the diamonds were missing. The only ones that appear in the picture that were on this ring were the black diamonds. As I said, very disapppointing for the QVC quality control and with the limited number of diamonds, definitely not worth the price.
I WAS HOPING...
When I saw this ring on QVC I knew I had to have it . I love nature inspired jewelry and this ring had everything I love. But it just didn't have the sparkle. When I opened the box, I'm sorry to say I was disappointed. The diamond colors were dull, not vibrant as I had hoped. I couldn't talk myself into keeping it so I returned it. I really wanted to love this ring.
I bought this back in August and then misplaced it. I was so upset that I couldn't write a review. But I found it recently and I just love it! It's so pretty and the diamonds look like they are set in white gold. I wore the ring on Christmas Eve and it sparkled so much that I couldn't quit staring at it! This is my 5th Affinity ring and I'm sure it won't be my last! Gorgeous!
Detail not very distinct
The design is beautiful, but for me at least it is hard to discern exactly what I'm seeing. It's a problem with lack of contrast. The detail is lovely but hard to see - doesn't jump out like the picture at all. The butterfly is fine, of course, but from there the flower not so much. I wish the green were more "green", as the leaves are just blending into the background. For the small amount of diamonds it's a bit pricey, too. I have some colored diamond bands from another network. They are very sparkly and 1/3 k each. This looks nice with them, and I think you could wear other bands as well on either side of this ring. The jury is out. I'll wear awhile and see how it ages.
