Cubic Zirconia Jewelry

Product Details

Cubic Zirconia: faux and fabulous

Cubic zirconia is a mineral, zirconium oxide, which is very rare in nature, but can be manmade to create a brilliant gemstone with all the fire of a diamond. In fact, only a trained eye can tell a real diamond from cubic zirconia!

In the 1930s, German mineralogists discovered a naturally occurring cubic form of zirconium oxide (CZ for short), but there is no record of the mineral being found again.

It wasn't until the 1970s when Soviet scientists, looking for a new material to use in lasers and other optical applications, perfected a method for growing cubic zirconia crystals in a lab.

Cubic zirconia instantly became popular as a diamond substitute and has graced rings, earrings, necklaces and CZ bracelets ever since.

CUBIC ZIRCONIA: This manmade wonder offers all the fire and shine of a diamond at a fraction of the cost. Choose a brilliant clear or colored stone and no one will ever know it's not the real thing.

Cubic Zirconia gemstones are as dazzling as any natural stone and come in every color of the rainbow. The clear, colorless stones are equivalent to a perfect "D" on a diamond's color grading scale, but can be purchased for so much less. Cubic zirconia stones are much heavier than diamonds, so their carat weights are really just diamond equivalents.

CZ Jewelry Care & Handling

Cubic zirconia is harder than most gemstones (8.5 on the Mohs scale), and is tough and durable. Cubic zirconia jewelry should be cleaned frequently to remove any oils that could dull the stone's brilliance. Use any conventional jewelry cleaning solution and dry with a soft cloth. Store your cubic zirconia rings, earrings, CZ necklaces and CZ bracelets in box when not in use.
