Allurez 14k White Gold Black and White Diamond Mens Wedding Band Style #UB630

The Allurez 14k White Gold Black & White Diamond Mens Wedding Band is a very handsome piece designed for the discerning man that wants something a little different than a plain gold band.  Whether it is to make your wife happy, or because you like something a little more sparkle it is a great choice. The piece has 40 brilliant-cut round black diamonds.  Every 5 black diamonds there is a beautiful brilliant-cut round white diamond.  The diamonds are bright diamonds of G-H color and VS2 clarity.  They fill the channel cut into the perimeter of the ring completely.

The ring weighs 9 grams on our scale and has a satin finish.  The 6mm Allurez wedding band is very comfortable, no edges dig into your fingers and it slides on effortlessly. All in all we like the Allurez 14k White Gold Black & White Diamond Mens Wedding band quite a bit.  The problem with it is in the value of the ring itself.  Generally we like to give good reviews to companies that provide more for $2,000.  If you were to take this ring to a gold buyer the value of the ring would be under $200.  That’s what the current gold price is for 14k white gold at 9 grams.  The point diamonds are bright and pretty, but they have very little (read almost no) value.  I know a jeweler that buys gold and he has a vase filled with these little point diamonds. You can buy them by the metric ton and glue them on your sneakers, it doesn’t make your sneakers worth millions of dollars.

In addition there are several complaints about them online.  Worse, a lot of the “good” reviews seem to be suspect (too commercial sounding, times and dates of multiple good reviews within a minute of one another,  anonymous authors, authors with no other reviews but the one saying Allurez is great, multiple posts of the same post from the same  author, etc…).  Here are some of the bad ones from RipOff Reports:

They have also had almost 60 complaints filed against them with the BBB:

I would love to give them a glowing report, the ring is a nice looking ring. It would be easy if this ring was priced at around $999.  Given their reputation, the value, and what they are charging I’ll have to say that my recommendation is to take a pass.
