9.0mm Heart-Shaped Amethyst, Tanzanite and Diamond Accent Ring in Sterling Silver
returned the day it arrived-see my photos
I received this ring today and it has already been returned. It can be found on various other sites, but has many poor reviews and a great review on this site (though there is only 1 review here). However, I decided to take a chance due to Zales' excellent reputation, and hoped that I would receive the same colorful ring the other customer raved about. Sadly, I was so very disappointed with this ring. The tanzanite looks to be a very pale lavender color, at best. (I am attaching two photos.) This is the same complaint so many others had about the ring on other sites. It looks nothing like tanzanite, which is known for its identifiable violet-blue color. When I returned it to my local store today, the jeweler agreed that the stones around the heart looked nothing like tanzanite. It's a shame, too, because the actual setting is so unique. This could have been a breathtaking ring if the appropriate quality stones had been used. My advice is to go to your local Zales location if you have one and see what they have that is near this price range. That way, you can see the actual pieces and make an informed purchase. That is what I did and while I spent only a bit more, I ended up happy with my new tanzanite ring!

Heart shaped amethyst
Received this order very quickly. Was quite impressed with the clarity and color of the stone. Beautiful! Was so pleased with this ring that I purchased three other pieces as gifts for others. Can't wait to see the reactions when they are opened.
