The sparkle and clarity is amazing - I have compared it to other real diamonds and the claims are real - you cannot tell the difference. In fact I think my diamond is better than most if not all of the mined diamonds we looked at! Especially with an emerald cut where its so easy to see inclusions.
I have the 2.62 center stone and one matching band. Although, I will be ordering a second band soon because I think one on each side will balance out the center stone really nicely.
I have only had it on for about a week and have had many compliments! I love that my husband was able to spoil me without breaking the bank. Can't wait to get more jewelry without breaking the bank :)
