What's to Like About Cubic Zirconia Earrings
If you are shopping for earrings, you might be wondering what’s to like about cubic zirconia earrings. Are they worth the money, and do they look as good as diamond earrings? While a cubic zirconia earring might be considered inferior to a diamond, most people won’t be able to tell the difference without very close inspection. And of course, the earring will be in your ear, so you can kindly decline to let them poke around your ears to prove that it isn’t a diamond. You may be trying to decide which type of earring would look best, like cubic zirconia stud earrings, or cubic zirconia teardrop earrings. If you are shopping for kids, cubic zirconia clip on earrings might be best to start a little girl with until they are used to wearing and keeping up with them. Cubic zirconias are often referred to as fake diamonds, but this is because the diamond market would like to downplay the importance of this material.
Cubic Zirconia is made using a process called the cold crucible. Individual crystals are grown in a kiln type device, and then the crystals are cut down to the desired size. Cubic Zirconia was originally hoped to replace more expensive optic equipment when it was first being researched, but now the market for jewelry and others uses have surpassed anything in the optics market. Cubic Zirconia has very similar properties to diamonds, but can be visibly different than diamonds on very close inspection. Unlike diamonds, cubic zirconia can be made almost structurally flawless, and this fact can mark it as not being a diamond, since most diamonds have some flaw. Cubic Zirconia can also be made in various colors, through a doping process, which means you can have diamond like qualities in a gemstone with additional properties you could never have in a diamond.
Design of Cubic Zirconia Jewelry
The fact that cubic zirconia can be made with colors is what allows jewelry manufactures to design their jewelry in ways they would not normally do with diamonds. For example, you can have pink cubic zirconia earrings, whereas you would never have pink diamond earrings. Pink cubic zirconia earrings can come in all the usual assortment of shapes and sizes, like:
- cubic zirconia chandelier earrings
- cubic zirconia heart earrings
- cubic zirconia hoop earrings
- cubic zirconia teardrop earrings
- cubic zirconia stud earrings
Cubic Zirconia Can Be Combined With Silver and Gold
And the list goes on. Basically, cubic zirconia is a very versatile material, and its properties are actually desired over diamonds because of this. The price of cubic zirconia is very competitive, since it is a commodity, also a benefit it has over diamonds. Like diamonds, it can also be combined with various metals, like sterling silver, gold, or any other fine metal used in jewelry. The crafting process is usually the same when working with cubic zirconia and sterling silver or gold. The metal, for example a ring, has a setting where the gem will go, and this is carefully heated and bent around the gem, and then tested to make sure the fix is solid. Making gold cubic zirconia earrings follows a similar process, but differs on whether they are stud earrings or some other type of earring.
