Smithsonian Simulated Marquise Diamond Ring
BEAUTIFUL RING POOR QUALITY
I ORDERED THIS RING BECAUSE I WANTED LONG TIME A GO A BIG MARQUISE RING, THE STYLE IS NICE EXCEPT THAT CAME WITH TWO MISSING STONES FROM BOTH SIDES, MAYBE THE METAL IS FLIMSY AND THE PRONGS DO NOT HOLD THE STONES AS THEY SHOULD, THERE IS WAY IS SO IMPORTANT THE METAL FOR A RING, NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS IS GOING BACK AND I WONT REORDER AS I DO NOT WANT TO OWN THE RING FOR MORE THAN A MONTH AND THEN NO GUARANTY , BIG DISAPPOINTMENT BECAUSE I DO LIKE THE RING.
i was excited at how beautiful it was when i received it and disappointed when i went to wear it for a second time and noticed that the silver metal of the ring had tarnished and rusted from when i washed my hands with it on-not worth the money unless you want to reset the stone in another real metal :-( i noticed too late and now i cant get a refund
I agree with Nice but;
I really love the ring but the silver tone has to go. Even though the stone is wonderful the setting has turned copper on the prongs and that is very disappointing. With the price of the ring it should have been sterling silver, Now I can't wear it because of the silver tone.... all I can do is look at it. Very sad.....
I ordered the Smithsonian Diamond ring for my wife, she loves the ring however, the diamond sits very high and it looks very fake. Our circle of friends would spoke the fake immediate. So sadly I sent it back and order her something in white gold. For some reason the gold just doesn't look like real gold. it's too dark perhaps!
The center stone of this ring was great...good size (it is SO hard to find large marquise-cut rings) and good fire/brilliance. The main disappointment was that this ring was almost $80 (with tax and shipping) and is not Sterling Silver. It seems like at this price, it could have been. I was concerned with the overall longevity that a "silvertone" ring would have. The shoulders and band were too narrow to for this size of center stone, so it just looked kind of cheap and lacking accent-stone details.
I purchased this ring in the silvertone so that I did not have to wear my authentic one every day. It is almost imposible to find this Marquise cut without the setting being high and the stone being narrow. This is the closest I have ever come to finding one that matches mine.
I wore it to a wedding the other evening and no one knew that this was not mine. I am so thrilled with this purchase that I put my real diamond away.
Wearing this ring takes the fear away of losing or getting my real one stolen. The price is right and so is the look.
Don't hesitate to buy this one.
An Absolute Stunner
I purchased this ring for myself as I am taking a cruise on the Queen Mary 2. With so many formal nights on the cruise I wanted to get something that had some bling to it without costing me an arm and a leg. Once again, QVC came through. This ring is gorgeous. And it looks like a real diamond. Unfortunately, I would be unable to buy a ring like this if it were the "real deal" but I don't think anyone could guess it wasn't a real diamond. I used to work for a jewelry company -- the one that starts with a "T" in New York. This simulated diamond would match anything in that store. Get it if you can, it's well worth the money and is simple elegance at its best.
