What are Cubic Zirconia Stud Earrings?
Cubic Zirconia (CZ) earrings are made from a simple lab-created synthetic crystalline substance. It is a cheaper version of other stones. CZ is an artificial stone and is not mineral-like compared to other stones. However, trace elements are used to provide CZ with brilliant colours.
It is entirely different to the naturally-occurring gemstone Zircon. These synthetic crystalline stones are created by combining zirconium and powered zirconium dioxide with a high heat point.
Once formed, the crystal is then set in precious metal, like gold, sterling silver and platinum.
Although Cubic Zirconia can be made in numerous colours via trace elements and minerals, the stones are naturally colourless, robust, complex and virtually flawless - mimicking very closely to a diamond.
Cubic Zirconia is much more affordable than your everyday diamonds. The sheer brilliance and crystal clarity give those who love sparkle give it a highly sort after look. If you are a lover of stunning earrings that pop, but can't afford those diamonds stud earrings, then CZ is your best alternative.
Trust us. Not many people will tell you the difference, especially when made as bright white colours precisely mimicking the diamond. It is also the birthstone of this in April.
Why is Cubic Zirconia prefered in stud earring designs?
Aside from these minor differences listed above, Cubic Zirconia is so similar to diamonds in its appearance; it is hard to tell the difference.
It's also a tough gemstone (8 - 8.5 out of 10) compared to a diamond (10). This makes this a highly durable stone and therefore popular as a gift for a young child.
It has incredible brilliance, sparkle, and fire for those who love to sparkle, nearly matching those of diamonds. It is also flawless as it is a synthetic form.
Cubic Zirconia's affordable pricing has made it the go-to alternative stones in all metal jewellery for decades.
