So, the company decided to opt for the next best thing: cubic zirconia. The five individual spokes of the wheel had been carefully adorned with princess-cut cubic zirconia. To keep the jewels in place, each stone has been screwed and secured with a nut at the back. And how many customers have purchased these fine set of wheels you may ask? One.
