Main stone size:  Don’t have a main stone, it’s sort of two clusters… 0.25 total.

Cut:  Round, I guess. they’re not chips but they’re tiny.

Color: White to the naked eye.

Clarity:  No idea, doesn’t seem that good.

Cost:  $85

Location:  Greater Toronto Area, Canada

Age: 23, and Fiance is 25.

Basically, we had very little interest in spending a lot of money on this ring. It is meaningful no matter what it cost. Also, it would not be in line with our values. I actually struggled (ethically) with the fact that my ring has diamonds in it, but it is a vintage ring at least 20 or more years old, so no new mining or exploitation went into it…I’ll have to be okay with that I guess.
