I actually just found this website called diamodstudswholesale.com I haven’t looked up the reviews on it yet but their loose diamonds have awesome prices depending on the clarity and color and everything. I found a 1 ct round l1 excellent cut g color diamond for 750$! You can also go to to .90 and get aneven better deal

Try going to a jeweler and buying a loose garnet. They are very inexpensive and considerably more durable than a colored CZ. 🙂

I would try googling for loose rubies and garnets

Garnets are definitely affordable. Keep in mind carat weights are going to vary by gemstone, so you should go by millimeter dimension. Or maybe a sapphire… hmmmm

Other ppl have the diamonds covered. But as far as CZ you have…

http://Www.ashadiamonds.com which are absolutely amazing diamond coated CZ

And http://www.winkcz.com which are INCREDIBLY high quality flawlessly cut CZ. (but NO diamond coating).

As far as engagement ring quality CZ goes after all my research these are the only two I would ever put in my e-ring.

http://www.gemselect.com/ has some really great stones. I got a gorgeous 3.52 (9.11mm x 5.52mm) carat natural pyrope garnet, round brilliant cut, VS clarity, for $25. I can’t recommend them enough. Have bought over 60 loose stones from them…garnets mainly. But also some topaz & sapphires. They ship SUPER FAST & fully insured & you get a third party gem certificate if you want.

EDIT TO ADD: another thing i love about gemselect is there are NO stockphotos. What you see is what you get. The stone you see in the pic is the one you are receiving. Heres a pic of that $25 3.52 carat garnet! Sorry it isn’t clearer (camera phone), but IRL its stunning. Please ignore dirty nails, just got home from Crossfit.
