The yellow gold is so shiny it catches the light beautifully. And the two diamond shapes capture the best of both words; the watery sparkle of the marquis along with the large bright flashes from the baguette. I feel proud wearing this as my right hand ring. It's the perfect balance of noticeable and subtly classy. I lusted after this ring for so long I worried that when I saw it in person it wouldn't live up to my expectations, but I fell in love the instant I opened the box, put it on my hand and held it up to the light. Beautiful boxing also, round soft velvety millennial pink that looks great against the yellow gold.
