What is cubic zirconia?
Since time immemorial, the value of a diamond has been determined by its beauty and brilliant colors. Its sparkle and color are primarily due to dispersion, or in other words the fact that sunlight is refracted into the diamond. The movement of light allows the human eye to notice its different colors. Nowadays, there are many gemstones that have a dispersion effect even greater than that of the diamond, making them no less beautiful than it. One of the most celebrated of these is cubic zirconia.
Cubic zirconia is a gemstone produced in the laboratory through the process of crystallization, looking almost identical to a diamond. In antiquity, people wore it as a protection against evil spirits and against melancholy. Cubic zirconia is considered the stone of the sun and is most commonly associated with the zodiac signs Sagittarius and Pisces.
Why is cubic zirconia a great gemstone choice?
Diamonds are wonderful, but as we all know they are not in everyone's pocket. Cubic zirconia is an ideal substitute, looking just as gorgeous but at a much more affordable price. Mind you, even a trained eye would need some serious equipment to tell them apart.
Daniella Anannia, jeweller from Sydney, Australia, share photo of two engagement rings. One is a diamond and the other a cubic zirconia. The photo shows two incredibly beautiful silver rings whose stones are of quite different value.
Well, were you able to guess which of the two stones is the Isthmian diamond ? The ring you see on the right side of the image is a perfectly cut one carat diamond worth 7,775 $, while on the left side you may notice a one-carat cubic zirconia. The stone looks stunning, and the fact that its price is without the last few zeros of the diamond is just a bonus.
