If you thought a 3 carat ring was well out of your price range, it's time to take a look at Amarley jewelry. They specialize in handmade jewelry that has all of the details and craftsmanship of fine jewelry, but at a fraction of the cost. By using sterling silver settings and high quality cubic zirconia stones, Amarley is able to create the same look and feel of rings that would sell for tens of thousands of dollars, but you pay less than $100. That's right, ALL of the rings on Amarley.com sell for under $100. Go ahead and take a look for yourself!
I had the privilege of previewing one of their most popular halo engagement rings, and I documented the unboxing so I could share it with savvy readers like you! All Amarley jewelry comes in a custom jewelry box complete with a gift bag, ring box, blank greeting card and jewelry polishing cloth. Even though their prices are low, Amarley doesn't skimp on presentation.
When I opened the ring box to see what was inside, the size and brilliance of the ring immediately floored me! If I hadn't known this was a cubic zirconia ring, I would have easily mistaken it for a multi-thousand dollar stunner. This particular ring is a Sterling Silver 3.00 CT. Emerald Cut White CZ Cubic Zirconia Halo Ring (SKU# AG617-12). It's market price is $199, but it's currently on sale at Amarley for just $79.95.
So many things to love about this ring! First off, emerald cut stones remind me of royalty because of their timeless and elegant look, and I definitely felt like a queen wearing this ring. It features 3 side stones on either side of the 3 carat center stone, and a very delicate halo setting gives the center stone even more sparkle.
When I tried it on, it was very comfortable and didn't roll around on my finger like some heavier rings tend to do. This is thanks, in part, to the uneven cut along the top side of the ring that helps it stay in place. It does have a fairly tall profile thanks to the extra "M"-shaped line of channel set stones below the center stone, so I would recommend removing it before doing any activity where it could get caught or run into a hard surface.
Overall, I was very happy with the quality of the ring, the intricate details, the sheer number of side stones, and the overall presentation of their jewelry package. I will definitely check out Amarley.com next time I'm in the market for some new bling, and hopefully you will too. Here's a final look at this 3 carat beauty!
