I shopped at DI while in Nassau. I had been looking for a cocktail type ring. Tanzanite looked really pretty so I looked at several styles. I settled on one which they said was $1600...I started to walk out and said it was over my budget. They called me back and said how about $1,000? I thought that was reasonable as it was 1 carat...no diamonds...no white gold band, just a sterling band...very plain. So I ended up buying it and after getting home i was so disgusted at myself because I was looking on-line and Tanzanite was really not that expensive at all...unless it had diamonds with it. I felt I was really ripped off!! Every time I wear that ring I get disgusted and just wish my companion had been with me...he has better judgement about prices! Please be informed...look on-line before you go to these places. I would like to take it to my jeweler to be appraised, but know I would REALLY be upset after he would tell me it was only worth about $200!!
