Cubic Zirconia: Shine Bright Like A Diamond Without The High Price Tag
The old saying that "diamonds are a girl's best friend" may be true, but diamonds aren't always an affordable option for everyone. For those seeking a brilliant stone without the expensive price tag, cubic zirconia is an excellent option. It looks similar to a diamond but costs a fraction of the price.
What Is Cubic Zirconia?
Cubic zirconia is a man-made gem that comes from zirconium dioxide. While they are hard like a diamond, they are not the hardest stone available. That title belongs to the diamond, which is made from carbon- an extremely dense material. Diamonds are strong enough to cut glass, whereas cubic zirconia is much softer and cannot. Cubic zironia also weighs less than a diamond because its composition is completely different.
A More Cost-Effective Option
While diamonds are virtually indestructible, they are also very expensive. A one-carat diamond may retail around $1,500 whereas a cubic zirconia of the same size will only retail for roughly $20. This is why cubic zirconia is a favorite choice among those looking to save money while also wearing jewels that look amazing.
Although cubic zirconia may cost significantly less than a diamond, you may be able to find a diamond ring that cost less than a cubic zirconia ring if it is a smaller stone. The size, cut, and clarity of the diamond is what dictates the cost.
The Advantages Of Buying Cubic Zirconia
There are several reasons why cubic zirconia might be a better option for you over a diamond or other expensive stone. The cost is the main reason because there is a significant savings when you purchase cubic zirconia. Cubic zirconia is a great choice for young children who can't be trusted yet with a costly piece of jewelry.
It's also favored by celebrities who prefer to keep their real diamonds locked away in a safe deposit box. They might wear cubic zirconia when they're out for casual outings but save their diamonds for when they attend award ceremonies and red carpet events.
