What is cubic zirconia?
The cubic zirconia (CZ) stones used in jewellery making today aren’t naturally occurring gemstones but lab-created. These synthetic cubic zirconia are considered diamond simulants. They are created in labs when zirconium oxide powder is melted with stabilising agents like calcium and magnesium to form its cubic crystalline form. A premium-quality CZ ring can shine with incredible brilliance, often deceiving the untrained eye.
Three facts about cubic zirconia
♦ Lab-created cubic zirconia has no inclusions and can be almost flawless
♦ AAAAA, or 5A, is the highest rating for cubic zirconia’s clarity, which is the closest that zirconia can have to the sparkle of a genuine diamond. Most designer jewellery has AAA-quality CZ stones
♦ Cubic zirconia measures 8 to 8.5 on the Mohs hardness scale, which makes it reasonably durable in jewellery.
How is the value of a CZ ring determined?
Cubic zirconia rings are affordable, which is why they have made such an impression in the jewellery fashion world. The price of zirconia is pretty modest – it's primarily for the cut, making charges, and metal used to design the ring.
What metals are best for setting a zirconia ring?
Though zirconia rings in white gold, rose gold, and yellow gold is in demand by customers who prefer real gold rings. The norm however is zirconia rings in gold-plated silver or rhodium-plated 925 sterling silver zirconia rings because this makes a beautifully crafted designer zirconia ring super affordable.
What are the best cuts and favourite colours of cubic zirconia?
♥ Cubic zirconia set in rings come in similar shapes and cuts as other gemstones. The most favoured cut is the classic round, princess, Asscher, and cushion cut.
♥ The colourless or white cubic zirconia is the most popular for its diamond-like sparkle. Zirconia stones are also available in green, pink, black, and any mix of vivid colours that are available as slim stacking rings and rainbow rings for that added pop of colour.
How do high-quality cubic zirconia rings compare with diamond rings?
When searching for a cubic zirconia ring, the most significant factor is always the price. A zirconia ring will not dent your budget, and yet, you have the exact same appearance as a diamond ring.
This means you can now choose a large zirconia main stone or multiple zirconia accent stones because the price of this gemstone will always be a fraction of the price of a diamond of the same carat weight or size.
