Rated 2 out of 5 by Scarlotte Color Washed Out - Not Worth The Price
I love the design of this ring. Some time ago, I bought it in iolite. The stones were a little darker than I'd have liked, but the ring was so lovely that I kept it, AND ordered it in the citrine. Citrine really isn't my color, but the stones were gorgeous, with beautifully saturated golden color, so I kept that ring also.
So imagine how excited I was to see the ring available in so many new choices. Knowing how much I love this design, I bit the bullet and ordered the tanzanite. What a disappointment! The stones are so washed out that in sunlight, they appear almost clear. If the ring was maybe half the price, I'd have kept it anyway. But it's definitely not worth $200 (incl. shipping & tax).
The design is smashing. Not so big that it's overpowering, but not so small that it's not noticeable. The quality of the setting is outstanding, just as you expect from Judith Ripka. I love the baguette cut and the ring is super comfortable. But for $200, I really expected at least a moderate amount of color saturation in the stones.
This one is going back. I'm going to try the amethyst choice instead.

This ring is truly stunning! Nice size, not too big or too small. The tanzanite color is a nice medium color, common color found in most tanzanite rings today. Simple, elegant & stunning design. I highly recommend.
