Big fake plastic or glass diamond ring?

My best friend's birthday is coming up in March and I want to get her something that she's been wanting ever since we were kids but I don't know where to get it.

She's very flamboyant and she loves big, gaudy jewelry. She also makes her own big, gaudy jewelry. Well, she's always wanted a huge fake diamond ring. I'm not talking like the size of a dime but something huge like the diamond on Snatch, like the size of a Barbie doll's head, like maybe 2 inches or bigger but not something that is ridiculously too big. She's very short so I don't want anything that's going to eat her whole hand up.

She's told me that she doesn't care if its made of glass or plastic but she would prefer plastic because its lighter. She doesn't care if its a ring or a loose fake diamond.

I've gone to craft stores and the biggest diamonds they sell are about an inch and they're those cheap ones that aren't all pretty faceted. The diamond in Snatch is perfect. If I could find a plastic or glass version of that, that would be awesome.

I've gone to flea markets, various jewelry stores, consignment shops, antique shops, kiosks in the mall, anywhere I could think of that might sell a big fake diamond and found nothing.

The only thing I found that came close was a paperweight that was a tiny bit bigger than 2 inches but the woman wanted $100 for it and my friend specifically told me not to spend too much on it, that she'd feel bad. I don't have much money anyway. It was too heavy anyway to be comfortably worn as a ring.

She's a really great friend of mine and I want to get this for her. So if you know where I could possibly get this, please let me know. Thank you.
