There's not a sigle word in the dictionary to describe how much I love this ring. I actually thought I wanted a white gold version, but at that time it wasn't an option. I just adored the design so much that I bought the yellow gold one, just like the pic here. Well - I almost haven't taken it off my finger, and I've had it for about 2 or 3 years. It still looks as good as the day I got it. I can't begin to say how beautiful it is in real life!!
