    I originally bought my .56g with the intention of eventually trading up, but I liked it so much I bought another and made my 3 stone lol.

    Yes, I do love their policies.

    @Dancing Fire are you coming in July?

    I think they’ve had this for a while (it was a big selling point to me since they are the only ones who do it):geek2:

    Me too, in addition to the fact that they are the sparkliest stones I've ever seen.

    I would love to see a CBI stone in real life, are there any agencies in Australia? What a fantastic upgrade policy and Wink and HPD sound so helpful and give great customer service based on the glowing reviews on PS.

    I don't see on the CBI website that there is a locale in Australia. But I know @Wink at High Performance Diamonds ships worldwide. He has a See It To Believe It Policy which lets you order a stone and return it if you are unsatisfied. But you won't be. :mrgreen2:

    Thanks for replying. I’m just really curious to see the performance of a CBI, I would love own one day. We have to pay duty and gst on purchases and I’m unsure how I could get a refund on taxes in the unlikely event it is returned :lol:.

    This is great news :))

    CBIs have (from what I can tell) often been considered to be higher in price than the other 'superideal' options, so anything that allows a more level playing field for those looking to buy is a good thing :)


    Although I'm not sure if it's a good or a bad thing that my good lady has no plans to ever upgrade her CBI :???: lol

    She is pretty sentimental about it, which is nice :))

    I'll have to get her some studs at some point instead, then I can have three CBIs to distract me ;-) :D lol

    @Dancing Fire I'm disappointed. I thought I was going to get to see a new upgrade stone. <cries>

    No, but EEFY jewelry comes up on the Princess boards, I tell them to stay away, but uneducated cruise passengers just post about the supposed deals that they got

    OMGosh, you're right! I thought it was just my old boss, but I guess it IS a thing. She cruises A LOT and shows me her EFFY crap and I'm stunned by how poor the quality is. She also wonders why her much bigger Zales stone can't compare to my CBI....

    High pressure sales all day long every day, multiple events where you can drink champagne or win a useless trinket. I tell them to Google EEFY Class Action lawsuit and buy it at Macy's on land if they want it so bad.
