1/4 CT. T.W. Diamond Five Stone Bar-Set Anniversary Band in 14K White Gold
My husband and I found this ring on the Zales Website and liked the style of the band because it was different and stood out from all the other diamond bands available to choose from. This ring would accompany my engagement ring and I didn't want anything "matchy-matchy". I thought this band style would be a playful addition. I liked that the diamonds were not set side by side together but set with a bit of space in-between. The ring did not have any reviews or product information other than the diamond carat weight so my husband went to the store to see the ring in person but learned it was an online exclusive item only. Regardless we went ahead and ordered the ring. The ring arrived just shy of a week later and as much as my husband and I were excited for its arrival we were quickly made disappointed. The ring appeared quite small and had no weight to it even though it was 14K gold. That's what I disliked most about the ring, I couldn't even feel it in the palm of my hand. I understand the online pictures are close up to provide detail but the ring just did not have the same character in person. On my hand it looked like any diamond band which wasn't what I wanted. The diamonds were a nice size and the ring may be nice on a more dainty hand #I wear a size 6# but it was just not what was expected. Had the website provided more product information I would have passed this ring up and chosen something else. The ring is as pictured however you'd have to squint to see the detail I was attracted to. Oh well. The good news was we were able to return the ring to the store hassle free. We originally thought we'd have to mail it back because of its "online exclusivity" but that was not the case. Thank goodness!
