Gold Over Sterling
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.
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 came and was exactly as pictured. Â I had been watching for a well priced ring that had a unique design and was eye catching. This is it. This is the first "gold over sterling" ring I have purchased and had a bit of reservation as to how the gold would hold up. I had an online live chat with a Ross Simons representative who advised that as long as proper care was taken of the ring that the gold should not wear through. I do not wear my jewelry during work projects and hand washing so I am hopeful to get good wear from this ring. For the price the design and look are very good. I recommend this ring.Â
