I was very impressed with this item when I opened it. Larger than I expected and the details in the setting are beautiful. While the stone is somewhat purple- it's not too much. I love this, purchase this for my daughter for Christmas. I know she's going to love it.

My husband picked these out for me online. He was even more excited when they arrived. They are beautiful and not light and flimsy but quality pieces. Purchased to wear to our daughters wedding. I love wearing them. Would definitely purchase again.
