The stone is really pretty
It's a beautiful ring that I bought for my daughter and she's delighted. I'd much preferred a small one as with the first ring I bought, but well, it's still nice.
Her birthstone. It's beautiful..
Bought for my gf for her birthday. I’m impressed. Going to use it as a promise to be an engagement ring. I’ll let y'all know if she says yes with a pic of it on her finger.
Really not bad for the price.
I wear it daily and after a couple months, no green fingers, foggy stones, etc. I am very happy with the purchase.
