Would you be able to spot a cubic zirconia stone amongst a million diamonds? It's highly doubtful, as even the experts have trouble distinguishing them apart! Cubic zirconia rings aren't a popular engagement ring choice for nothing; they truly are remarkably alike to diamonds.

We've heard shocking news stories about diamond scams where criminals have duped individuals into buying cubic zirconia jewellery at extortionate prices, thinking that the stones were authentic diamond jewels. Whilst this is unfortunate for the people who have been scammed into paying a much higher price, it should put the minds of those who are considering cubic zirconia as an alternative to diamonds at ease. Read on to discover more about this fascinating gemstone, and take a look at our collection of gemstone rings here!

Seeing Cubic Zirconia Rings Clearly For The First Time

Diamonds and cubic zirconia may be indistinguishable to all but the experts, but the way that they're made is hugely different. Whilst one takes billions of years to form, the other takes about 10 weeks to manufacture in a laboratory.

Sure, the fact that a diamond originates from a natural source is appealing, but their prices – which range from hundreds of pounds to millions – aren't. Not just that, but cubic zirconia rings are free of the ethical issues associated with mined diamonds too, which is another great reason to choose it over a diamond ring!

But what else can you add to your "pros and cons of diamonds and cubic zirconia" list? Well, if it is an engagement ring you're after, just think of how much you'll save! You could have a once-in-a-lifetime trip with the love of your life, or simply put the money towards your future together. You may not know exactly what the future holds right now, but with a bigger bank balance, you can be financially secure and spend it on joyful experiences and make memories that are worth far more than a materialistic diamond.

Of course you want something to mark the big occasion – it's your wedding day, don't forget! And a beautiful ring will make it all the more special, but as we said earlier, nobody will be able to tell the difference between a diamond and cubic zirconia ring! Don't take our word for it though, take a look at our amazing range of CZ rings today.
