6mm round center Chrome Diopside Gemstone, secured by 6 prongs, surrounded by six 2mm crystals flower “petals” make for a sweet yet sophisticated ring. Four 1mm crystals peek out, like small rays of light, to give further brilliance to this delightful piece. Three additional crystals accent the front of the band on either side, and the band tapers slightly to a 2mm band width. Don’t let the price fool you on this ring – this is an amazing piece with a nice size gemstone! Feminine, flattering, and classic – you will be happy to add this to your ring wardrobe! Side view of the ring shows the quality of the craftsmanship. You will not be disappointed! Chrome Diopside, a relative newcomer to the gemstone world, is a natural gemstone found only in Russia. It has a higher refraction than emeralds – giving these gemstones amazing sparkle! Chrome Diopside is difficult to facet, and roughly 90% of the stone is lost during the cutting process, making it rare indeed! (Note: Chrome Diopside should not be exposed to harsh chemicals or cleaners.)

I couldn't believe this ring. I wasn't expecting a lot because of the price - but wanted to see the stone (never heard of it before). Was I surprised. The band and setting were the same quality as my sedding band (just not yellow gold)- and the stone and design are amazing!
