STERLING SILVER: Also known as "Standard Silver," sterling silver is silver alloyed with other metals to increase the hardness and durability. Generally, sterling is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Some sterling silver jewelry is plated with 14kt-18kt gold and referred to as "vermeil," or "gold over sterling."
POLISHED: A buffed-out finish used to produce a mirror-like shine.
PERIDOT: the birthstone of the month of August, peridot is only found in one color: green. Historians are now convinced that some, if not all, of the emeralds that Cleopatra was famous for wearing were not actually emeralds but deep green peridot stones from Egypt.
(Color: Green, Quantity: 1, Shape & Cutting Style: Oval
OVAL: An elliptical shape that resembles an egg.
Fancy, Weight: 2.59 carats, Size: 10x8 mm)
Diamond: The hardest and most brilliant of all gemstones, a diamond can make the heart race with its pure and fiery spark. An ancient symbol of love, a diamond is the preferred gemstone for tokens of affection, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. Diamond is the birthstone for April.
This ring fits great and is perfect. I have been looking for a peridot ring and love the way the stone is set up and really sparkles. The side stone are not huge but do help show off the green center beauty.

This is a beautiful peridot, but what makes this ring exceptional is the sturdy shank. Usually, RS rings have big stones, but fliimsy, too-thin shanks that break. I thik this is for the purpose of photography. Also, NOT EVERY RING HAS TO HAVE DIAMONDS ON IT!!!!! Most times, it takes the attention away from the main gemstone -- you end up putting tiny, tool-grade diamonds that usually fall out, with prongs that snag clothes.
