I purchased the entire set (separately) - with ring, necklace and earrings - and they are beautiful! I feared the opals might disappoint, but they are full of depth, fire and color. The color combination is soft and feminine, with the pastels in the opals, the lavenders of the tanzanites and the white topaz. It's a very lovely, classic design.
