I love my ring!
That said, I will also point out the one thing that buyers should be aware of. The tapered band does not allow a tight fit with the wedding band. I did not want my rings soldered, so it's just something you get used to.
Finally, the matching wedding band is gorgeous too. It also has stones on the outside of each side of the band, which is very unique.
My biggest critique of this set is the metals don't match. Whether we were "upgraded" to palladium or platinum by choice or error, the wedding band now makes my engagement ring look dull, almost a yellow cast. In fact, one of my sisters noticed it on my wedding day! I didn't want to be without my rings after we got married, but now feel it's time to get DN to correct this issue. Since I will have to send in both rings, I will also have them replace two of the small side-band stones in the engagement ring that were dark from Day 1.
Overall, I do love this set and this is my second purchase from DN. Great value for what you get - and no one needs to know it's a lab-created stone. Pay the extra for the appraisal so you can easily add your purchase to your homeowners policy.
