The best purchase I’ve made

This is a stunning ring. The attention to detail and clarity is impeccable. I was nervous that 1 carat wouldn’t have the wow factor I was looking for, but I was gladly mistaken. The diamond size is perfect on a classic solitaire band and sparkles like nothing I’ve ever seen. She said yes and I couldn’t be happier.
