J35789 - Tacori IV Diamonique Epiphany Simulated EmeraldCrescent Ring
Glad I Ignored the "Bad" Reviews
I have many diamonique pieces,including Epiphany and Tacori. I nearly missed this ring because of so many negative reviews, but for the money, I decided to chance it. Boy...am I glad I did! This ring is AWESOME, with none of the issues mentioned in any of the negative reviews. It is absolutely stunning in every way. I feel for those who got less than perfect when they ordered this ring, but I got perfection. One comment to the person who said the band was lightweight, cheap looking and looked like it could have came from a gumball machine...if you are at all familiar with Tacori, you have to see the stunning detail on the band of this ring. This work is so finely done, it could pass for real platinum Tacori. As for the weight, buyers need to remember that they are NOT buying the real thing, so silver with platinum plating of course will be less weighty than pure platinum. So, spend $50 and get a stunning peice of costume jewelry, or $30,000 for the real thing. My real stuff (including a Tacori platinum ring) stays in the safety deposit box, so it rarely gets worn. But, I can go to any of my jewelry armoires and pick what I feel like wearing. I'll be wearing this one A LOT!!!!
I almost didn't order this due to the reviews that called the color dark-on the contrary, it is remarkably close to the color of the genuine Colombian emerald ring I already own, and a perfectly believable size. I also love the Tacori band on the ring-for this price you can't go wrong.
I was a little hesitant to buy this ring after reading the reviews, however you can't beat the Last Clicks price. I received it yesterday & wore it to work today & have received many compliments on it from my co-workers already. I'm so glad I went for it. My usual size is about a 7 1/2 so I went for the size 8. It is a little loose compared to how I usually like my rings to fit, but not so much that it spins around on my finger. I just love it. I think the stone is beautiful. It is a little darker than other emeralds that I have, but it is still beautiful. It's a keeper.
This is really a beautiful ring. I have very petite hands and the stone looks a tad large on my finger, but it is classy, refined, and beautiful! The piece has a good weight to it. My only complaint is that it is a little large on me. I ordered a 6 (my usual ring size) and could probably use a 5.5. I may have to exchange it for that reason, but I truly love it.
Wanted to love it
I really wanted to love this ring, but I will be sending it back. The stone is too dark, it appears black unless you're in direct sun and the diamonique stones in the setting were dull. I could live with the weight of the band, although it is very light (reminded me of the "silver" rings they use for wedding crafts), it looked okay on my finger. Just to be sure I wasn't being overly critical I wore the ring for a couple of days. I did not get a single comment on it, even though I never wear a ring on my right hand. Too bad - it seemed so perfect in the pics and video.
I absolutely love this ring and it has a very delicate look to it. My stone is a beautiful color and I often get compliments on it. Instead of telling them it is a an emerald I just mention it is a Russian Diopside. Since I collect the former stones I feel this color is closer to that color.
My problem is that after wearing it only two months I developed a small chip in the stone. I haven't sent it back yet but have all intentions of doing so. I have never had a diamonique chip on me before. I must of hit it on something very hard. I recommend this ring to anyone who has a small hand and slender fingers
A Lesson Learned
I debated about this ring for a long time because I really liked the design but was hesitant because of the reviews. In this case I should have listened to the reviews. I like the design and the color of the stone, but it is light and seems cheap because of it. I will keep it because in some ways it seems very celtic. I also agree that you might go down a size. I wear a 7 but this is slightly loose; I think a 6 might have fit. The price of this ring should be dropped to reflect the feedback of the consumers. I will be sure to read the reviews before I purchase any other Tacori piece.
I kept the ring due to the design. But the green stone is very dark and unless in very bright light it almost looks black. It does not look like the ring shown on TV.
I have a Tacori engagement ring that is Platinum. My Mom gave me this epiphany ring as a gift and it is absolutely beautiful!! The detail and quality of the ring fits in perfectly with my engagement ring. This ring is totally believable to have cost MUCH, MUCH more than it did! I get compliments on it every time I wear it! It is so elegant.
This ring is TOO small..the stone is TOO small. I thought it was going to be bold and beautiful..it's way too dinky for my taste.
I was so excited to get this ring until I opened the package, The ring was cheap looking and the stone was VERY fake looking. I have other Diamonique items that I love. This is the first time I have been unhappy with a piece I bought from QVC. I sent it back the very next day!
Did not meet expectations
I am disappointed with this ring for 2 reasons.
The setting does not meet the quality I expected in the Tacori product.
The size 9 I ordered should have fit my right hand because I have other rings in that size that fit. This size 9 ring is oversized, incorrectly sized or I was sent the wrong size.
I am returning asap.
