Love love love it!  by MK on 9/11/14

I got this 6 months ago as my engagement ring. I have larger long fingers so I was concerned it would look too small and delicate on me since the description says spritely, but it is exactly what I was looking for in a 3 stone ring so we went for it. I love the high profile center stone. It really stands out from the rest of the ring and is as sparkly as the day I got it! I do take it off applying lotion or when cleaning with chemicals as you would with any good jewelry and its normal for a band to get a little dinged up wearing it 24/7. It is a thinner band but the stone is as bright as day one and nobody can tell its not a mined diamond.This ring sparkles more than my bosses princess cut real wedding diamond...I recommend it for any couple on a budget. I got what I wanted without breaking the bank!

Gorgeous!  by Nicholas on 8/12/14

The ring was so much more than I had anticipated! Absolutely gorgeous on my wife-to-be's finger!

So far I love it  by Angela M on 7/17/14

So far I have had this ring for 5 months. My fiance and I decided on the Kit with a 2 Karat princess center stone in the white gold. We bought the band with it to save for a later date. When it first arrived I thought it was beyond beautiful. But be warned, The band on the kit is very thin, NOT weak just narrow. I tried on the same ring in their store (before we ordered mine) that had a 1 karat and it was perfect. The 2 karat was a tad large. I thought about returning it to reduce the size but whats done is done and I've grown use to it and I adore my ring!
I want to give anyone looking at this ring some helpful advice. I have had both a "mined" diamond ring from a large jewelry chain and this one from DNL. I take my DNL ring off to shower, wash dishes, clean the house, go to bed at night, ect. I am very careful about taking it off to apply lotion and hand sanitizer and I work in the medical field. All stones will get dirty at some point. I run a soft tooth brush over it very lightly about once every 2 weeks when I'm getting ready for work for about 10 seconds and it gleams like the day it arrived. My stone is so large and exposed that dust gets caught in it. Sometimes all it takes is a quick rinse under some hot water.
My former "mined" diamond from the chain store was the same in terms for getting dirty. Every time I went to the mall I had to have it cleaned. I never took it off or worried about what I did when it was on and it feel apart. The stones would get foggy and they eventually started to fall out. The white gold turned yellow but at the time I had not idea it needed to be cared for. Also keep in mind that in order for most people to afford a "Mined" diamond there are flaws in it that may cause a yellow color or foggy look but that is not the case with my DNL diamond.
I'm happy with this ring. It was a fraction of the price and it shines brighter than any thing I have ever had. I have bought some temporary fakes/ CZ rings and they looked fake and cheap. This ring looks like I spent a small fortune and some patients I have had have commented to that effect. I get compliments on my DNL ring everywhere I go. So far, I have not had any problems with anything falling out or turning any funny colors. I'm sure if I do I will have no problem getting help from their customer service who has been very helpful in answering any questions I had prior to my purchase.

If I had to do over, I would not get this ring  by Deb on 11/5/13

My now husband proposed to me last November with the Kit ring in white gold. First off, the ring is way to thin, which I don't like at all...but kept it since it was the one he picked out for me. I upgraded to palladium after seeing the negative reviews of people who have ordered the white gold, which turns yellow. After wearing my ring for a few months the color of the palladium changed to an ugly grey color...not at all attractive. We got married last month and had to buy the matching band because the ring was so thin, nothing I found looked good with my rind, so he bought the matching band, also in palladium. That's when you could really see the difference in color, my engagement ring was grey and the new one was about three shades lighter...looked so bad I had them both rhodium at my local jeweler to make the color match. It cost $85. and will need to be redone every 6 to 9 months. The only reason I went with the palladium, was to avoid having to do exactly that. As for the center stone, it was so very pretty when it first arrive, but became cloudy within a couple months. Its sad, this is supposed to be the prettiest piece of jewelry a girl owns, but in this case it is far from it.

Diamond Nexus responds: We appreciate you taking the time to post a review on your Diamond Nexus purchase. We are sorry that you experienced issues with your purchase and we want to emphasize that we stand behind our jewelry with top of the line guarantees so that if there is an issue with them, we will happily repair or exchange for you within the first 30 days of receiving an item.

Our White Gold, as any that is sold by jewelers from all over, does actually lose its luster and require re-rhodium plating over time. That is because White Gold is not mined from the earth. It comes as Yellow Gold and then is dipped in other metals to give it the white metal look. What you are experiencing with the Palladium is unusual as it is a solid metal. If a jeweler is trying to rhodium plate over pure Palladium it may not be bonding.

A beautiful purchase!   by Kate on 6/28/13

My fiancé gave me this ring a month ago, and I love it!. I have a .99 brilliant round center stone that sparkles just beautifully. The stone is set VERY high, so if you're not okay with that, you might want to look at a different ring or see if you can get this setting lowered. I'm a music teacher and I do a lot with my hands, and it doesn't bother me.
I just spent a week in an African drumming class, and I wore this ring the whole time. No stones are loose, and it didn't get a single scratch. If that's not a testimony about the durability of Diamond Nexus rings, I don't know what is!
One word of caution; I needed a size smaller, but this ring could not be sized down from a 6 to a 5.5. Because it was still within 30 days of him picking up the ring, they exchanged it for a smaller one. If you wait past 30 days, you can't get it resized or exchange it, and you'll just be out of luck. So guys, give her that ring right after you get it!

This ring is petite and beautiful; perfect for a small, dainty hand! If you can handle a high setting, I would highly recommend it!

The stone a beauty, but the metal is a huge set back  by Crystal on 6/18/13

My fiance and I have been shopping for good quality, affordable rings for a long time. Finally on Christmas Eve, he decided to pop the question and propose to me with the ring of my dreams, The Kit! It truly was a beauty, the stone he chose was a 1.45 round brilliant with an upgraded platinum setting. It shined like no other. But sadly it's been 6 months now and i've noticed that my stone gets cloudy easily when not cleaned weekly. I've also noticed my metal is tarnished and badly dented in the back. My fiance paid more for the platinum expecting it to wear and last longer than 18k gold. I could deal with the stone, but what i'm not satisfied with is the fact that i'm not getting the quality of the metal i've paid for.

Diamond Nexus Responds: Crystal-we are very sorry to hear that you've been unhappy with your platinum setting. Without having the ring to see, we aren't sure what you mean by tarnishing but platinum is known for taking on an "antique" look over time. Also, for as hard as platinum is, it can be prone to scratching and this is something that most people find they will need to get buffed and polished about once a year. Weekly cleaning for the center stone is somewhat typical, and mainly is going to depend on what lotions, perfumes, or soaps it may get exposed to. Our Customer Service Coordinator Michelle has been made aware of your order and you can reach her at She looks forward to hearing from you and working with you to find a resolution that you'll be happy with.

Love this ring!  by Anniversary Buyer on 3/9/13

I got my Kit ring yesterday, I ordered a .99 Princess cut center in white gold with the matching band. It is absolutely beautiful and petite. Very pretty for someone who wants something small and feminine. Thank you DNL!

LOVE!!!  by Chloe on 3/9/13

Absolutely Beautiful!!! I got in in white gold with a 1 ct princess cut center and matching band. I just love it! Thank you DNL!

Ehhh  by Army wife on 3/5/13

The ring looked pretty when I fist got it and as I looked at it more I sent it back I am now on my third ring and there is still so many things wrong I just got tired of sending it in now it is loosing its color and turning a grayish green/yellow....took it to a jewelers to get it cleaned and its still missed colored this would be a good temporary ring

Diamond Nexus responds: We are sorry that you have experienced issues with your Kit ring and we are more than happy to repair it in any way that we can, but we are not sure what the issues are since it could be the stone having buildup on it or the gold simply needing re-rhodium plating. Stones benefit from regular cleanings to remove soaps, lotions etc. that can build up on rings. Depending on how you wear the ring and what it is exposed to, some chemicals will wear down the white gold faster, causing the ring to look more yellow, as white gold is not solid nor is it mined from the earth. Only yellow gold is, so white gold is a combination of alloys mixed with yellow gold and then rhodium plated for a lustrous white finish. We hope that you can contact our Social Media Coordinator here at with your order information and we can look into this for you and offer assistance. We do look forward to helping you and making sure your ring looks great and can be worn happily every day!

Swept Away  by Aimee on 1/14/13

We love each other and we love this ring!!! We ordered it with the 1.03 heart cut center and it's a dream. I feel like I've been carried off in a fairy tale every time I look at it. I have many pieces from DNL but none as cherished as this. The one carat center is perfect for this gentle band. I wear a 7-7.25 and have short and stubby fingers :-) It;s fits just right. I hope everyone feels as happy about their purchase as we do.Thanks DNL!!!
