The almost oval shaped center stone is in a deep shade of champagne and is about 5/8 inch by just under 1/2 inch so it definitely is not small. It has been set sideways to give the ring a different look. On each side of the center stone are eight small clear cubic zirconia stones set very low into the band to add some extra sparkle. A tiny stylized dolphin swims through the sea of stones on each side to add a touch of whimsy. There also is a rope detail that runs around the base of the stone to add another touch of detail. We have added rhodium plating around the stones to highlight them, but the ring is primarily gold plated. All the stones are hand set. In rhodium and gold plated brass.
