4.0 out of 5.0
Very cute and comfortable
I love these three very cute and comfortable stackable rings. The colors make me happy. The only complaint I have is that the turquoise-colored one looks too much like plastic compared to the translucent stones of the other two. If they were all plastic, I would just consider them cute costume jewelry, but I don't appreciate the contrast here. I do like the patterns on the band and would have liked for them to continue around the entire band.
