I live 6 blocks from the diamond district in New York. I had looked at lots of store windows, and a couple of upstairs "wholesalers", but I did not find this kind of ring locally. A dealer pulled up websites to show me some styles and this was one of the sites. I looked the site up directly and I bought it here. The customer help was very nice to me. I chose a 1.33ct princess and it came 5 days later. It is stunning and cheap!!!!!
