The imperial powers of the nineteenth century, having weakened one another in World War I, destroyed themselves in World War II. In the aftermath of the war, Europe was in shambles. Nearly all of France, Germany, Italy, and Poland had been devastated. Bridges and roads were gone. Rivers and canals were clogged with sunken ships and fallen bridges. Unexploded bombs and shells littered fields.
"I discovered that my 14K rings included nickel and I am severely allergic. I broke down and bought this ring to wear while my finger healed and received it yesterday! It is absolutely beautiful! The band looks like my 14K band and the rest of the ring is amazing! Not so big that it looks "fake" and sparkles brilliantly! I will probably not even wear my real diamond very often since I now have this one.." Review by Karenn
