On an episode of truTV’s “Adam Ruins Everything”, in just 3 minutes and 53 seconds comedian Adam Conover completely destroyed the common beliefs that the diamond engagement ring is a timeless symbol of love and a marriage proposal tradition handed down from generations since antiquity.
After watching this funny and incisive video, if you can correctly answer just 5 simple multiple choice questions-- the answers to which are in the video-- you will get a free CubicZirconia.com gift card worth $50 USD to purchase anything you want.
Frankly, the U.S. higher education system might be the biggest scam running. And the way Big Pharma continues profiting off of drugs for those dying in late stage cancer misery-- and buying up and closing down any companies doing research on early cancer detection measures-- may be the most evil thing we’ve seen in the world of business. In our opinion...not far behind on the scammy and evil list, however, is the diamond engagement ring.Beyond the many, MANY lies the diamond industry has told for decades-- these solitaire swindlers have commercialized the emotion of love and somehow managed to transform a personal and thoughtful gift into a status symbol that has come to be measured-- and judged-- by the size (and the price tag).
Yeah, we know that sounds more than a little ‘tin-foil-hat’ crazy to some people.
But if you’re not already a definite ‘Diamond Doubter’, we're not asking a person to believe anything just yet-- until he or she can see the evidence for themselves. All we ask is that you refrain from disbelieving while we show you our proof that 'the more he spends, the more he loves her' is absolute bullshit.
Beyond great entertainment that brought in $170+ million US dollars at the box office globally, few movies have been more influential in stirring a call for change than this 5-time Academy Award nominated film.
For humanity: the world became more aware of the human rights abuses, dangerous labor practices, terrorist funding, money laundering, and environmental destruction wrought by the mined natural diamond industry.
For our business: new customers had yet another powerful reason to choose our 5A diamond-quality CubicZirconia.com CZ stones instead of buying a mined, natural diamond.
For the marriage-minded, engagement proposal planner with a future fianceé on the fence about choosing natural mined diamonds or an alternative: he/she can simply have a movie night and watch Blood Diamond together (you won’t have to say much, and if you haven’t seen it…he/she will want to talk after watching).
Ants are thrifty and efficient, work hard and save, exercise plenty, look to the future and manage to get everything they can out of everything they’ve got. Grasshoppers prioritize rest, play and partying, and tend to spend more than they earn (eat more than they harvest). It could be because they’re lazier and more wasteful than ants, though in a judgment-free zone we’d just say they prefer to enjoy today without worries about tomorrow.So what happens when an ant (saver) marries a grasshopper (spender)?It should be pretty obvious that a marriage between the an ant and a grasshopper CAN be troublesome and MAY end badly in our opinion...unless the 2 agree to do some or all of these 9 things.
Did you know a piece of finished jewelry that is complete except for setting stones – example: earrings, ring or pendant – is called a "mounting"? Every single one of our pieces of jewelry can be purchased as a “mounting” without stones. And of course, you can do so less expensively than the piece fully-set with our CZ stones. You don’t need to be a jeweler/jewelry company for a B2B purchase, either; anyone can buy the mountings we manufacture with a few conditions.
In this post, we fully explained what rhodium is, why rhodium-plating is popular with fine jewelry (and fine jewelry customers!) and provide more rhodium-related info than you’ll probably ever want to know. We even cover the drawbacks to rhodium-plating -- mainly the ongoing maintenance cost and effort-- to help our customers wanting white precious metal jewelry to make the best possible decision.
Please note that rhodium-plating for extra protection and shine comes standard on all fine sterling silver and white gold jewelry created by CubicZirconia.com. Replating white gold and sterling silver jewelry with new rhodium is a service we offer at a low cost.
If you prefer the softer, warm tones of white gold that has not been rhodium-plated, please contact us before purchase so that we can make that modification when you place your order.
Journalists have known for decades what anyone who tries to do so finds out pretty quickly: it’s hard to sell a diamond for anywhere close to what you paid for it. But if you need cash and fast...what’s to do?
Enter CubicZirconia.com's "Diamond Downgrade" program, which allows you to keep your jewelry, just sell the diamond for fast cash at a fair price, have it replaced with our 5A/AAAAA cubic zirconia...and be assured that no one will ever know the difference.
Our average markup for gold, palladium, and platinum is 20-40% less than the industry standard for precious metals jewelry.
We invite you to compare our precious metals jewelry prices with other jewelers and you’ll see that, gram for gram in gold, palladium and platinum cubic zirconia jewelry, we offer the best prices for the highest-quality cubic zirconia jewelry manufactured anywhere.
Why can we say that with 100% confidence?
Part of it is because of the difference in precious metals markup, but it’s also that we have designed our shopping experience to be fair.
Permit us a short explanation, please?

Much more.Almost every product and service provider does this...but here's three places where something for your wedding will actually be cheaper in 2018 than it was 5 years ago in 2013.
