My girlfriend made it clear that she's an emerald girl, and Angara had a terrific selection of emerald rings. I wasn't sure whether to go with the halo or a 3-stone, but after I saw this one in person, I knew it was the right choice -- impeccably made and gorgeous, much more so than in the pictures here. My now-fiancee loved it. My only misstep was in getting the wrong size -- who could've guessed she wears a size 3.5? -- so I sent it back for resizing. Throughout the process, Angara was extremely responsive, including when my fiancee peppered them with questions about other style rings and what the options were, before ultimately deciding to stick with this one. If you're worried about purchasing jewelry online, don't be -- this is a great company.
