Cubic zirconium, sterling silver

If I'm being totally honest, I originally bought the gigantic 13mm x 18mm cubic zirconium at the center of this ring for the lulz. I just thought it would be funny to have a CZ that large in the house. It sat on my wi-fi router for a couple years before I thought that maybe I should finally try do do something with it. Because a pendant would make too much sense, I decided to put into a ring. This stone is so big that I actually listed it first in the materials on this page, and I never put the stones first. And since it still wasn't over-the-top enough, I put four additional CZs in the tips of the prongs that hold the center stone. Now, I realize that there are blinged-out pavé rings that are way more extravagant than this, but considering that the stone is very nearly wider than the size 6 shank of the ring, I thought the absurdity was at peak. On the fingers of people petite enough for it to fit, it really does drag their knuckles towards the ground. If you happen to be the person who buys it, be very careful in the sunlight because the sparkle from that gigantic stone is blinding.
