Rated 1 out of 5 by BejeweledinNH Genuine but very narrow band
For my birthday my dying ex-husband wanted to purchase me a family birthstone ring and asked for my input in selecting one. My criteria for choosing one included several factors: I wanted my ring to be cast in sterling silver with a mostly solid shank, it needed to include four genuine stones and lastly I wanted a more contemporary take on the traditional setting.
I searched many websites before concluding that Zales was the only reputable jeweler to do business with based on the breadth of selection offered in a variety of metals, many with genuine stones. This ring was one of two rings that I suggested for my gift. However, we did not initially order this ring because my ex-husband wanted a more contemporary setting. After several unsuccessful orders of other rings, we chose this one.
Upon opening it, I was pleased with the stones and the setting, but that was about it. The band is extremely narrow and the underside is hollow with only a solid band at the very back of the finger. However, the workmanship in the setting of the stones was good.
Based on a subsequent purchase that cost the same, I can only give this ring a value rating of poor - save your money and keep looking. My fifth and thankfully final choice is shown below - it's a fabulous value for the money.
