Hidalgo Diamonique Sterling or 14K Gold Clad Solitaire Ring
Not quite right
I liked the design of this ring, but was very disappointed in the appearance of the center stone. It just did not look like the Diamonique stones I have purchased in the past. This one was returned.
QVC listen up please: your quality is declining...rapidly.
I ordered 2 pink/rose gold rings. The first arrived in a yellow Hidalgo box with a Hidalgo bag and it was gorgeous. Crazy beautiful. But, after day ONE, i lost a stone. So I immediately ordered another one (fearing it would be sold out by the time I returned the first ring).
i received the 2nd ring and *gasp*....you sent me a USED ring. In fact, the rose gold was SO DARK that it was brown. It looked dirty! There were hairs in the prongs (seriously) and the pink stone had absolutely NO FIRE to it at all. It wasn't packaged in a Hidalgo box or bag, it was packaged in a blue qvc box with a generic white cloth. It didn't even come with a return label! The difference between the two rings in lustre and stone -quality was frightening.
You can't imagine my disappointment on both tries. There is no reason that expensive costume jewelry should lose stones so rapidly and there is certainly no reason for QVC to send out used items that aren't even packaged correctly. Furthermore, why does Hidalgo have such an inconsistency with the tones of the metal and the stones?
Not perfect yet really pretty
I'm not sure what to say about this ring. It sparkles beautifully and, strangely enough, on my hand it actually looks really good, a lot better than when I'm holding it to examine. When I'm looking at it, the ring seems more flimsy & unrealistic than I'd hoped. The prongs are not perfectly spaced on the stone, but it isn't very obvious. The stone is completely engulfed in the prongs (no free space at the bottom), so it sits right on top of the band & looks slightly like a gumball machine ring would from the side. Compared to other CZ solitaires that I own (same carat weight), this stone seems a bit too flat-topped (does that make sense?)....BUT I can't deny it sparkles like crazy, as do all of the side stones, & sparkle payoff is my main requirement in jewelry (plus good workmanship of the metal band, which is just a bit lacking here - minimal silver makes it appear flimsy). But I do like the ring's delicate size & undeniable eye-catching bling. The shank is almost eternity style, so it's nice to have the look of diamonds going around the finger in a continuous, unbroken line rather than stopping halfway down the side of the finger. This is hard to find in affordable fashion jewelry.
Immediately when I saw the ring I thought I was going to return it, but after all my griping about this ring's shortcomings, I actually like it enough to keep (the sparkle convinced me). Looks surprisingly clean on the finger. The price was low enough to make it worth keeping.. It stacks easily with other rings & will sit flush against a band ring. If you like delicate-looking rings & don't mind the minimal metal in this one, you'll likely enjoy this Hidalgo ring. The center stone is a realistic size but not tiny - it's 1ct (6mm) which I prefer for my small hands (I wear sz 6 & bought the silver color). My finger nowadays is more like 6.5 but size 6 in this ring fitswell enough thanks to the narrow band.
I would recommend it to others based on the quality of the CZ.
This ring is delicate, beliveable, sparkly.. I put it next to my real diamond engagement ring.. I could not tell the diffrence!! REALLY!!! I'm so happy .. me first ever purchase of diamonique.. wont be my last!!!! :)
Bought this to go between the two similar bands, but this was just too flimsy for me.
I love this ring - just the right size to be believable. Beautiful Diamonique band with sparkly pink stone. Highly recommend.
Not so great
Center stone is poor quality for diamonique, however he setting is beautiful. I do wish they would make it in a size 4, and I'd like diamonique to bring back the 1.5 carat solitare in 14k gold.
This ring was absolutely AWFUL. The website most definitely makes it look bigger
Than it is. It fits my finger but looks like its for a baby doll. And looks extremely CHEAP!!!!!!!HATED IT. WASTED MY TIME AND TOOK 2 days to ship
Received this ring today, Love the thin band & size of the Solitaire but, was a little disappointed in the size of the stones on the band. Thought they would be a little larger. All in all, I love the ring, it looks good with my wedding band.
Lovely & just right
I've been looking for a diamonique ring for a while that I can wear with my plain wedding band and a small white gold and diamond band I already have. Most diamonique bands or solitaire types were too big and out of proportion to my wedding set, so they just didn't work. This ring is really just perfect. The 1 carat stone is good for everyday/believable, and the side pave stones don't show up the real diamond band I already have. My diamond band and this ring nearly look like a perfect match, so now I wear my wedding band, my diamond band, and this ring all together for a very nice effect. It's really exactly what I would have wanted. I am very happy with this ring!
OMG its gorgeous
I bought the canary diamonique and I am so glad I did. I just received this today. When I opened the package I gasped. The ring is beautiful and looks like a canary diamond. It has so much sparkle and the size is believable. I have petite hands so it fits me perfectly. Thank you QVC!
If you like bold don't buy this
This is a very pretty ring - but it is small - it's difficult sometimes to buy something on air.........when you receive it and try it on - it just doesn't have that umph.........
