I am an addict for diamonds in the "brown" family.
Champagne, Cognac and Chocolate Diamonds
The problems with this ring are as follows:
1) This ring, and all the other LeVian "chocolate" diamond advertisements show the jewelry to have very dark "chocolate" diamonds. They are not!! They are a tad darker than "cognac" diamonds...which are not dark in color at all. If you are expecting the "dark" chocolate color shown in this advertisement, you will be quite disappointed. I held the ring right next to my cognac diamond ring and they are basically the same color.
2) No place in the description of this ring does it tell you of the black enamel paint around the brown diamonds. The black enamel in the photo gives the illusion that the brown diamonds are larger and darker than they actually are. I believe this black enamel will wear over time and there will be gabs missing from the black enamel which will have to be repaired and cause the ring to lose value.
3) The "14K" marking inside the ring is very, very lightly stamped into the ring and will probably disappear after a short time of constant wear. The "LeVian" logo inside the ring is stamped much deeper. The 14K should be stamped just as deep.
Do not get me wrong, it is still a very beautiful ring.
But if you are looking for the deep dark chocolate as advertised in these LeVian will be highly disappointed as I was and I do not recommend it.
If you are looking for a beautiful sparkly ring not mattering that the stones are not dark and that there is black paint around them, then go for it.
I saw the advertisements and expressed interest in the ring to my husband. It was bought for me as a gift. I am disappointed that it does not look anything like the photo. Highly thinking of taking the ring back.
I am giving it 3 star ratings because of the deception in the advertisement and the ring not looking at all like the advertisement.
No, I do not recommend this product.
