I don't know anything about rings other than I have a marquis diamond with i believe on a black onyx background

Having recently bought the pants button extender (made by the " As Seen On TV" company) and there is an offer inside the package for a ring set. Here are the details

Diamond-X Sterling Silver layered in pure platinum with the look of the finest quality diamonds at a fraction of the cost

this exquisite ring set boasts a 2.0 carat princess cut center CZ stone accented by 2.20 carats of round and tapered CZ baguettes. hand set in 2 sterling silver rings layered in platinum.

they're supposed to be appraised at $136 but they are selling for $20 plus s7H

before i even go further, does "princess cut" mean they are for women? i would imagine that excess diamonds probably are, whereas men's rings aren't

as you can tell i'm not a big ring person

please give me your opinions about this and your knowledge or rings

thx--R

Princess cut is the shape the stone was cut into - just google it, it's a square shape. But note that this ring is actually a cubic zirconia, not a real diamond.

Rings look icky on men, unless they're wedding rings or superbowl rings, so just don't bother.

If you like it, then buy it, but just understand that there is no deal to be made on your end. If it's selling for $20 (plus S&H), that means the actual cost of the ring is even less...there's still a markup on it so they make a profit.

As another poster pointed out, it's CZs and keep in mind it's being mass marketed.

It's costume aka fashion jewelry. Why not save up and buy the real thing from a jeweler?

Default thanks you all

i'm not going to buy it but in addition to my marquis/onyx ring still would like another ring since i like rings

what is good for a male that would not indicate attached status since i'm not married, and i'm looking to spend under $100 (my marquis/onyx was $75 when i bought it in 1989)

Bare fingers.That onyx one sounds kind of outdated to me.

A Native American style ring can be worn by a man. Look on eBay for good sellers and various styles.
