Cubic Zirconia Jewelry?

"Affordable Alternative to Diamonds"


Cubic zirconia jewelry is a beautiful and affordable alternative to real diamonds. So why exactly would you want to consider buying a synthetic gem rather than the "real" thing?

I'll give you 3 good reasons:

  • Perfect clarity
  • Wide color options
  • Low price

I know it doesn't yield enough in the luxury-factor, but it does the job very well - which is to look beautiful and expensive! If you're on a tight budget, then CZ (shortcut for Cubic Zirconia) is a fantastic alternative to expensive diamonds.

How to Save Money with Cubic Zirconia Jewelry

If you have thing for all things pretty and glittery but don't want to spend a fortune on high-end diamond jewelry - then you should definitely build your jewelry collection around cubic zirconias.

Suggestions on what CZ styles to invest in:

If you don't want to splurge on real diamond stud earrings then opt for the CZ but in a quality metal such as sterling silver, vermeil or gold-filled (they'll last longer than cheap silver or gold-tone). In fact, you can buy all of the must-own jewelry essentials inexpensively this way.

Differences Between a Diamond and Cubic Zirconia?

"Can you see the differences between a CZ and a real diamond?

Yes, but it's not always easy.

Here are the main differences between a Cubic Zirconia and a real diamond:

  • Cubic Zirconia has slightly less sparkle but has more more flashes of rainbow colors
  • Cubic Zirconia is heavier (about 75%) than diamond
  • Cubic Zirconia is perfect in clarity but there are also Cubic Zirconias with small inclusions available in today's market.

Those 3 points are easy ways to detect if your engagement ring is the real thing or not ;-)
