A retail store diamond jeweler we know of offers a 3.50 carat diamond-centered, 14 karat gold ring design almost identical to The Trudy engagement ring style from our CubicZirconia.com product catalog. Their ring will be made with one discernible difference being set with the highest-quality cut and clarity colorless natural diamond (G color and SI1 quality) versus our flawless 5A cubic zirconia. The price difference? Their ring is “on sale” with center stone included for $84,575 (as of this product page's publishing date of 10/12/16, when gold at wholesale prices costs about $1250 per troy ounce). They actually have the audacity to show a ‘mark-down’ from $95,000! Of course, more than 98% of that whopper of a price tag is for the center stone alone (which we know is itself inflated by the diamond cartel’s habit of stockpiling warehouses filled with mined diamonds to keep supply low). Our 14k gold version of The Trudy with 3.50 carat center stone is right around $1,000 USD, and you'd never know the difference between the CubicZirconia.com ring and that "on sale" diamond ring for $84,575-- unless the person who bought it told you it was CZ, or you used special tools and circumstances to check the center stone.
Skeptics will email us for the diamond jeweler’s address, and we'll be happy to provide it if you want to pay an inflated price to help subsidize this Beverly Hills California jeweler’s massive brick-and-mortar overhead. Smart shoppers in the market for a sterling silver, gold, palladium or platinum engagement ring in the $200 to $2000 price range, though, will be glad to hear that the AAAAA (5A) cubic zirconia stones like those we set in this ring are guaranteed to be flawless, ideally-cut to perfectly faceted diamond proportions, and visually indistinguishable from the most expensive mined natural diamonds to any review with the naked eye. Wide with alluring curves, beautiful yet understated, The Trudy is the ring that lets her own attractive qualities shine through without your beloved being overpowered by too much 'bling'. She’ll strut her stuff with forty-four (44)* round, prong-set 1.0 mm pavé accent stones cascading in a double row to either side of your choice of the 0.75 to 3.0 carat Radiant Cut center stone. Get The Trudy engagement ring as a stand-alone or together with the matching anniversary band to complete the cubic zirconia bridal set!
