This is a very high quality made 18k yellow gold plated eternity band, encrusted with very high polish cz stones inspired by brilliant cut diamonds. The setting is the same type used when making this ring in solid gold. This Italian made band looks just like fine jewelry, and it is the next best thing to it. The stones are very shiny. If they were diamonds they would each be approx. 1/3 a carat. This band is well worth the price due to being very well made.
