Not only was my ring a fake tanzanite stone, it had side stones that weren't even cubic zirconia! Not worth anything. Don't be fooled by the nice cases and showroom and plaques of merit on the walls. Not an honorable business!!!!!!!!!!!

Finally after 6 months I did receive my Mexico Tax Refund. Can't figure out how to delete my prior review. My jewelry from Effy is beautiful and love wearing it.

I bought what I thought was a yellow diamond there and when I had it appraised it was a cubic zirconia. They don't give you a good receipt either - it fades so tough to dispute. Beware.
