Oval Lab-Created Purple Sapphire and Diamond Ring in 10K White Gold
Delicate and sweet but...
I love the ring my boyfriend got me. It isn't a big ring by any means.... but if you look at the measurments, you wouldnt expect it to be. The setting is fantastic and the band "curves" around each diamond, which gives it some character. The only down fall was after i had worn it for not even a whole 3 days, one of the diamonds had fallen out. Their 100 day guarantee came in handy and it wasn't a hassle to just exchange it for a new one.

Different than pictured.
On the site, the sapphire is a distinctly purple color. (Yes, I am aware that different monitors show color differently -- I've seen it on 4 different monitors, and I've printed it. It always looked very purple). The ring I have in my hand is a very, very light purple, so much so that it appears to be pink.
This is a gift for my wife. She loves purple, not so much pink.
Also, the bezel (or setting -- not sure of the correct jewelers term) is distinctly out of round. In the picture it's a very clean ovoid shape. The ring I received looks like the bezel is misshapen to fit an unevenly cut stone. That makes it look like a piece of jewelry that came from a vending machine. Additionally, in the picture the bezel appears to be fairly wide in comparison to the stone. In reality it is razor thin.
The more I go back-and-forth between the picture and the ring in my hand, the more I realize that it's far different than pictured.
The ring is also VERY small. I knew this from a previous review, and the size is not an issue as my wife has very small hands. Hence this is not a complaint on my part, but something you should be aware of prior to ordering. I do give a negative review to this website for not bothering to show the ring ON A HAND, as is customary to judge scale.

Beautiful but tiny
The ring is much smaller than I expected it to be. It definitely needs to be worn with other rings on the same finger or it gets lost on your hand.
