Cubic Zirconia Jewelry


Cubic Zirconium – Great Bling for Your Buck

I must confess that I prefer the feeling of natural gems, but I have recently realized how much beauty cubic zirconia can bring to your jewelry wardrobe.

Zirconia was first known as a diamond substitute. But it is far more than a clear stone.

Zirconia can be all the colors of the rainbow, and it can accent all gems beautifully.

Synthetic rubies, tanzanite, diamond and more – all beautifully found in zirconia.

Some of the Advantages of Lab-created Jewels over Natural

If you want a gem you can find either natural or jewels created in a lab. This includes diamonds.

Lab-created gems are identical to the natural gems mineralogically. That is they look the same, and are the same chemically and optically. It is generally cheaper to make gems in a lab.

CZ, is also lab-created. But they are “diamond simulants” which look like the true gems, but they are not alike as a mineral. For instance diamonds are made of carbon while CZ is made of zirconium oxide.

In the case of cubic zirconium there is another benefit over natural diamonds.

First of all it is sustainable, because it is made in a lab. There is a controversy about diamonds, often they come from terrible circumstances. Conflict or “blood” diamonds are illegally traded to fund conflict in war-torn areas and often slaves are used in the mining.

Cubic zirconia avoids all those issues.

Differences between Zirconia, Diamonds and Moissanite

This video provides a nice comparison between real diamonds and two gem substitutes zirconia and moissanite.

Would You Ever Choose Zirconia over Diamonds?

Of course true diamonds are special.

Diamonds are due because of the way the light causes sparkle and color. That is due to the “dispersion” of light, as the light moves they cause different colors in the stone. This happens even with tiny little movements, one of the most fascinating things to do with a gem is roll it in your hands to see different colors.

Some lab-created gems have a higher dispersion than diamonds!

Actually, cubic zirconium has the most dispersion of all. Some people have even said that zirconia has too much color! But other people appreciate the tremendous glimmer for such little cost.

Cubic Zirconia Birthstones

I have a fascination with birthstones, and zirconia can provide an inexpensive substitute for expensive gems.
