I received this ring for Christmas, and it is gorgeous. The stone is such a beautiful color, the workmanship flawless, and the picture on line doesn't do it justice. I am so happy with this ring, and I highly recommend it to anyone thinking about buying it. I have several pieces of James Avery jewelry and have always been pleased. I will buy more. Now, there's a pair of earrings I have my eye on for Valentine's Day. I'll start hinting tomorrow.
