Smithsonian Simulated Shepard Yellow Diamond Ring
Price exceeded value, beauty, and price
I wanted to love this, but in a moment on my hand, I saw that the price exceeded the value, beauty, and quality of this item. Returned.
Nothin Mellow about this Yellow!!
What a beautiful ring...After reading the reviews, i expected a big ring....and that is what i got! Its a big rock...a big, beautiful rock! i ordered a size 8 and it fit perfectly. At first i thought the ring was too big and too eye catching so I was hesitant to wear it out...I wore it once and it changed my mind. Even though it is big, it is not too over the top. It is a beautiful piece to add to your collection. One difference from the picture...The stone is not a rounded square shape but more rounded rectangular shape. Not that it makes much of a difference!
If your on the fence about this piece, do yourself a favor....jump off and get this ring!!!
PERFECT Index Finger Ring - Compliments Galore!!!
This ring is stunning. Most often I don't like simulated gems, however, this one is an amazing exception. The cut and the sparkle can't even be described - it glitters, sparkles, glimmers, throws light all over the place.
I have small hands, but I still love a big ring on the right index finger - it's so classic. And without fail, I always get compliments when wearing a ring on the index finger - from men too, which surprised me. Whenever I wear this ring - even during the day - I get compliment after compliment.
It's a truly beautiful stunner. HUGE stone, but it's meant to be 'cocktail' or could be a citrine, so one needn't worry about needing it to look like a canary diamond which would then be completely not believable!
Beautiful but too big
This ring is absolutely beautiful but for me....just too big. If it were a few carats smaller, I would have kept it. The color and clarity of this ring is fabulous! For me, the ring needed to be in a larger setting and band and a couple of carats less to be believable. It is pretty though.
This looks like Rodeo Drive period. The clarity of the stone is outstanding!
I saw this ring flash by one night on QVC and I could hardly believe my eyes. I thought about it for a long time and finally convinced myself to purchase it. It is even bigger in person and very nice.
I had been looking at this ring for quite some time. Finally ordered it, the stone is spectacular, it picks up colors in the sunlight and outside at night. Very beautiful and a conversation starter for sure. The only thing I don't like is that it is not set in sterling silver. If they do make one in sterling silver, I will for sure buy that one too. This is one gorgeous ring.
Beautifu ring ........ but........
Beautifu ring, stunning!!!!!!!!!!!! I love the color and the way the light reflects and refracts! Would give the ring ten stars itself, but the cheap packing, a cardboard and a cloth pouch (really?). This ring should have been presented in a fine and proper ring box.
Wish it was made better! :( Turned finger green!
Received this as part of my Christmas present from my boyfriend (I picked it out of course!). After wearing it about 6-7 times since x-mas the "silvertone" is FLAKING off revealing a copper-ish color on the shank and has also started turning my finger GREEN!!! I am fully aware it is costume jewelry but this seems very unlike QVC's normally high standards for quality. I've ordered numerous Jackie Kennedy peices which are also costume, yet none of those ever turned my finger green or flaked off. I am VERY disappointed because as other reviewers have stated the simulated stone is amazing!!! Sparkles like nothing else and has given me sooo many compliments! I truly wish this was made better because it's big, bold, and glamorous--exactly what I wanted! I'm very sad about this ring and am now reluctant to buy any Smithsonian jewelry. Buyer Beware!
Call me mellow yellow:))
Love this ring. It is big and just stunning. I love these big rings and this is one of the best. So Happy I bought it. It is love at first sight Not for the meek or mild. Love this another wonderful piece. Thank you QVC and Smithsonian you are the best. It is a stunner .Keep them coming please.
Beautiful, sparkly and fun!
I bought this because I love yellow diamonds and this Diamonique version sparkled like crazy in the video presentation. In person it is even more beautiful, and in the right light it's a total fireball of rainbow sparks and scintillation! I also love the old mine cut because it gives the stone a wonderful depth and unique character. While obviously nobody is going to think it's a real diamond, I've had lots of compliments on it and love wearing it for any occasion...just for fun! Some people assume it's a gemstone like Citrine or Topaz, and the colour does resemble those two stones in certain light. Also the ring does fit true to size, so if you are between sizes go larger. I'm a size 4.75 - 5 and the 5 is perfect. I took off one star because the stone rattles in the setting, though not enough to bother me, and also because it's silvertone. At this price I feel it should be sterling silver, but because it's so pretty I can live with these imperfections. All in all, it's a gorgeous piece that is so much fun to play with! :)
Wow, just wow. This is a breathtaking ring and the cut allows many different colors to flash off the stone. I've been waiting for the right faux canary diamond ring and this fits the bill perfectly. I wore it to work and it did not seem to be too large or flashy.
