Diamonique is a women's best friend. I purchased this anniversary band so long ago I can't even remember how long I've had it, I would guess almost 15 years. When I first took it to the jeweler to have it sized he asked if I had bought it at their shop. I told him truthfully that it was not a real diamond ring and he was very, very impressed wih the quality. Eventually the truth comes out as they ask for the value of your jewelry whenever you bring it in for any work for insurance purposes while in their possession. This ring has 5 stones set in 14K yellow gold and is 1/2 carat total weight so it's not an "in your face" type of ring. It goes in my sonic cleaner and comes out sparkling like the day I received it. I have purchased many diamonique rings over the years since, each time it has the jeweler stumped until I tell him and I always get compliments. Why would I spend thousands of dollars when I need only spend a few hundred at the most. I never worry about a stone falling out or even losing a diamonique purchase as it can be replaced for less than the cost of having it repaired or bothering to report it to the insurance company. Ladies, check out this line if you haven't already!!
