I received this ring as an anniversary gift from my husband. It is very pretty to look at and goes well with everything. It does not sit up off of my finger, which I like, and blue is my favorite color, so I love the sapphires. It works well from day to night and I love more vintage inspired pieces so I really think the appeal for me is the milgrain detail. I wear this ring nearly every day and I don't notice any snagging on clothing or fabric, and its great with having a small child that I don't have to worry about it scratching her accidentally. I don't mind it being lab-created; it is still very pretty and worth the price.
