I found a wedding band I am interested in purchasing but I want to make sure it is a good deal for the diamonds included.
Diamond Pieces: 15 pieces, Diamond Carat : 0.56 carats, Diamond Shape : Round, Diamond Cut: Round Brilliant Ideal Cut, Diamond Color : G – H color, Diamond Clarity : I1, Diamond Setting : Prong Setting
Gold Purity : 14k White Gold, Ring Size : 8
Thanks for your input!

I would say for ct weight yes, but if you could find a higher clarity rating you may find it has more sparkle. My wedding band was 2k for .50 cts…
find out what’s important to you, if you want sparkle then check out some higher clarity options.

Seems nice. But who rated the diamonds? It it GIA or what?

It’s not the price that worries me, but I’m concerned that the melee may be ugly. I worry about the poor clarity. It may make it lack sparkle and may look dark and bland. I’d recommend seeing it in person if at all possible, before deciding.
I also don’t know if you can fully believe this seller. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe you can, nor “should,” try to cut such small melee (15 stones at .56 ctw is about .037 each) as “ideal round brilliant”.
Round melee is actually usually cut differently from larger (.25+ carat) stones. Our eyes can’t resolve light the same way at that small size so it would look blurry and not so good. They cut them differently to maximize their sparkle for their size.
