Cubic Zirconia has become the most popular gemstone in the jewellery industry for years. It has also become the perfect alternative to diamonds and other special stones. It is so similar to the diamond that it is hard to differentiate.
If you want to propose with a unique and brilliant ring, but a diamond is beyond your budget; it is time to consider cz engagement and wedding rings.
This blog introduces you to cubic zirconia (cz) and explains why you should consider cz studded jewellery as your next best alternative. Aurex Jewellery offers a wide range of cz studded rings.
What is a CZ
Cubic zirconia is an inexpensive man-made gem that looks like a diamond, but it is very different. It is made in the laboratory using zirconium oxide. Zirconium oxide is a white crystalline powder which creates crystals when it is melted at extreme high heat. Stabilizing agents are added to the zirconium oxide to form cubic zirconia. Like diamonds, cubic zirconia is clear and have a good degree of hardness.
The beauty of Cubic Zirconia
Cubic zirconia works nicely when set onto rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and other jewellery. Aurex Jewellery offers different cz sizes that are set on jewellery. Below are some of the advantages of cz:
Special stones such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds are not low cost, they come at a price. Cubic zirconia jewellery, of course, is way cheaper. Since they are synthetic and mass produced, the value of cz is very low. This means that whatever jewellery that is studded with cz will ultimately have a low price.
It’s no doubt, diamonds and other precious stones such as emeralds have superb qualities that make them actually stunning. However, they’re not alone in the jewellery market as cz has also some quality levels. Due to its close visual likeness to the diamond, the cz has become a chief competitor to the diamond.
CZ jewellery is on the market in white, pink, blue, orange, purple and red coloured gemstones will typically value far more than colourless ones, however, coloured gemstones are obtainable at costs that anyone will afford. This enables you to have a variety of different jewellery to wear for any occasion.
Hardness / Scratch Resistance
When buying a ring, one of the top considerations is the durability of the material. CZ jewellery is tough and is available at a rate of 8.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. This is just a fancy way of saying cz stones are hard and do not break easily. A cz is also resistant to getting scratches and anyone can wear it every day of the year without worry of damage.
Ease of replacement
No one can deny that diamonds are forever, but that is until an expensive diamond engagement ring you bought goes missing ????. It is a stressful moment because of the replacement cost and the entire process of customizing it becomes an enormous task. For these kinds of reasons, people are opting for Cubic Zirconia rings and other forms of cz jewellery as they are easier to replace.
Easy to maintain
CZ Jewellery is very easy to clean, maintain and store. It does not require a lot of upkeep although it is recommended that you take proper care of jewellery. Taking it to a professional jeweller like Aurex Jewellery twice a year should be good enough to retain the shine and brightness.
Clearly, cubic zirconia is an important gemstone which is an alternative to diamonds. Since they are easy to maintain, affordable and of good quality, surely cz studded jewellery is a beauty. Also, on offer at Aurex Jewellery are coloured cz which are available in store and on specific requests.
