Hi 10SNE1,

Its always difficult to answer the "Did I Get A Good Deal" questions based on a picture and some written statistics. Mainly because we have no way of knowing if the diamonds in the picture are truly of the quality that is listed.

Which is why some people come by with really outlandish claims, with photographs and descriptions that are such great deals that everyone wants to know where they were purchased.

Problem is, the person really did not purchase the item, but is rather a dealer wanting to do some free promotion for themselves. And while I know this is not you, it still makes it difficult for anyone to give a professional opinion without actually seeing the item and confirming that the item is the same as the description.

Which brings me to the bottom line: It's a beautiful ring setting. And I think you will hear that alot.

But did you get a good deal? There is not a soul on this board can answer that one for you in truth and fact until they are able to inspect and grade those diamonds, and confirm that what you got....is what you were told.

I would have it checked by a qualified gemologist to get a proper answer...particularly on an eBay auction.

We can all make you feel good about your purchase by telling you how pretty it is, but no one here can answer your question properly.

I urge you to get an independent verificatrion of the purchase while you still have the ability to return it....just in case.

As soon as I receive the ring, I'll take it in to a local jeweler and have them give me an appraisal (for my own sense of wellbeing!).
