Very sparkly setting for the small 'diamond like' accents. White sapphires are a good substitute to keep the price affordable. Tanzanite is a deep purple shade due to the smaller karat size but it fits in with the shades of tanzanite-periwinkle. Well worth the money and it is a 3/4 karat stone. I love how the descriptions on Overstock tell you the gem sizes so you have no surprises. I just pull out my mm slide and I know what I am ordering. Thanks!
