Have you heard of cubic zirconia before? For those who admire the beauty of diamond jewelry, but don't feel like paying the high cost, then the answer is most likely yes. With the high prices and scarcity of gem-grade diamonds, there was a demand for another material that was similar to diamonds, but with a much lower price point.
Cubic zirconia has filled that gemstone void. There are other materials that are also quite popular, such as rhinestones and moissante jewelry, but cz jewelry is by far the biggest selling diamond substitute of them all.
Jewelry made of cubic zirconia has such a likeness to real diamonds that it is nearly impossible for the average person to notice any difference.
Some jewelers may argue that moissante jewelry more closely resembles diamonds a little better; it is much more difficult to find it. At the same time it is also much more expensive for use in rings, necklaces or bracelets.
Have you taken the time to look closely at both cubic zirconia and a real diamond? I would suggest you do a comparison so that you can spot the differences with authentic diamond jewelry. This may take a little extra time, but you'll get to see a side-by-side comparison.
If you decide to purchase a cubic zirconia stone, make sure you get a high quality setting to put it in. This will give it an impressive look and make you feel like you have an actual diamond ring or other piece of jewelry.
The last point I will bring up concerns insurance. Jewelers and jewelry appraisers know the differences between the two. Never try to pass off cubic zirconia as a real diamond. It will never work out and could get you in trouble.
