I saw a billboard for Diamontrigue last November and went in thinking that it was real diamonds at bargain prices. So when I visited I must tell you how freaked out I was when they told me that the jewelry was REAL, but the diamonds were not. I left with that idea in my head to do some research on their product. After countless months shopping for an engagement ring for my now current wife, I realized how great of a deal I was getting with Diamondtrigue. I went back and bought a 2.2 carat princess cut diamontrigue diamond in a beautiful white gold setting and presented it to my lovely bride. \r
SHE LOVED IT! She thought long and hard about it not being ""real"" and then realized that if we were the only ones who knew, then who cares? We saved around $12,000 off the cost of a real ring and promptly bought a much needed second car for us, and we have never been happier. Everyone gawks at its beauty and we just humbly tell them that we know a wholesale dealer in New York City who ""hooked us up"".\r
The staff there is so nice and professional that you think you are at Tiffany's (we went there too to look and let's just say we left feeling poor), but you aren't spending Tiffany money. What a great relief to us, a young couple in love with not a ton of cash lying around. Also, when we travel, we don't worry about getting mugged or losing the ring. I mean, what's the point of having something nice if you can't enjoy it all the time? And why stretch your credit card to the limit for something that costs more than a plasma tv, but you can't even watch?\r
Since the engagement ring, we have gone back and bought some diamond earrings. My wife looks great and feels great, but most of all we feel so much smarter than everyone else who pours money into jewelry that you will never get your money back on. Diamonds may be forever, but a diamondtrigue diamond is forever smarter!\r
Pros: When you go in, because of its location, no one will see you. Total anonymity!
Cons: Can't say there are any...
