The ring is very pretty. It is much larger than expected, however. The 1" measurement is across bu the length is at least 1 1/2 ". It is over my knuckle. The styling is very unique and I like how the jewels are in a swoop instead of a straight line. I had to let it grow on me because it is so different than all my other rings. But, I ended up ordering the one with the garnets as well, so that should say it all.
