Cubic zirconia engagement rings are fast becoming a popular inexpensive option. The most popular of lab-created diamond alternatives - cubic zirconia (CZ) - looks just like a diamond to the naked eye.

The look of a  CZ engagement ring is deceptively identical to a diamond engagement ring, and it looks beautiful, elegant and is very affordable.

CZ is considered as diamond simulant (not synthetic diamond), since it simulates the appearance of a diamond but is not same as diamond in terms of composition. Read more about Cubic Zirconia.

Is Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring the right choice for me?

Economical: Yes, if you don’t want to spend too much on buying a diamond engagement ring but, want something that one can proudly show off. You can also read the review of my favorite affordable engagement rings from Amazon.

No Negativity: When you buy a CZ engagement ring, you don’t have to worry about it being a conflict stone.

Variety: It has cubic isometric structure. Due to this structure, it can be faceted - just like diamond - giving it a diamond-like appearance.

Just like diamond, CZ stones are also available in various shapes like - marquise, oval, emerald, heart, round, trillion and so many. It is also found in variety of colors, so you will have a lot of options to choose from.

Different colors of Cubic Zirconia

No Inclusions: Being grown in laboratory under controlled environment, like moissanite it also doesn’t have natural flaws (black spots, feathers) or inclusions that are present in natural diamond.

Easy Maintenance: Due to its hardness and durability CZ maintains its shine for longer period, so it does not require special care or maintenance. However, extra care should be taken to reduce its contact with skin, because body oil reduces its shine. Also, precaution must be taken while setting and polishing this stone.

Great Sparkle: Cubic Zirconia Engagement Rings are highly refractive, allowing them to sparkle and shine more than artificial diamond simulant like - rhinestones, glass or crystal knock-offs. But, since they are not as dense as diamonds, they are cheaper.

Things to Remember

  • There are different types of cubic zirconia with varying quality. There are various brands offering different types of CZ jewelry, so understand their product properly and then make decision.
  • Sellers usually market their stones as synthetic diamond or simulated diamonds, instead of cubic zirconia. Although, they are mostly CZ stones, but still ask them clearly what they are selling and what you are buying.
  • It should be protected from oil and sprays. You should take care to reduce its contact with skin because body oil reduces its shine.
  • Various jewelers are offering CZ jewelry, both online and retail shops. I recommend buying online, as the price will be lower because of the increased competition in the online market.
  • When purchasing online, you must be aware of pros and cons of Online Jewelry Buying. Read reviews of the different companies in order to find the one that matches your requirement.
