    Not quite.

    I believe this is their official stance.

    Re: Costco "discount" diamond ring

    I have trouble believing that the people who can afford to spend $480k on a ring would be shopping at Costco.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: Costco "discount" diamond ring

    Shouldn't they be selling this in a 24 pack?

    That's what I thought. Maybe Sam's Club will pick this up.

    Re: Costco "discount" diamond ring

    diamonds are overpriced, impractical, etc. etc. etc....but a necessary evil in our society. That said, how in the world do you ever spend that kind of jack and at the end of the day have to admit you bought it a Costco???

    Walmart might do a cross match on the price.

    Re: Costco "discount" diamond ring

    I'm speculating that the CEO of Costco got his ring back thanks to his well-crafted pre-nup. Now he's trying to find a buyer for the thing so he can go buy a yacht.
