Choosing Believable Cubic Zirconia Jewelry
Our jewelers hand craft our cubic zirconia jewelry using the same techniques and care as they would with genuine diamond jewelry. Our stones are also top quality AAA stones and 5A flawless Zirconia on stone that are 4mm and up. This means that all of our jewelry looks real. However, there are certain things to look for that gives certain pieces a more believable. After all, most of us want a more affordable alternative to diamond jewelry, not a cheap looking knockoff. Here are a few quick tips.
The size of the piece definitely plays an important factor. With real gold and platinum jewelry, a thicker and larger piece would cost hundreds and even thousands of dollars more. With this in mind, generally the smaller the piece, the more believable it will look.
Stone size place a huge part in the cost of your jewelry. This is because many people don't realize that larger stones are exponentially more expensive than smaller ones. For example, if all things being equal, a 5 carat diamond would cost ALOT more than five 1 carat diamonds. If believable is what you want, generally items with smaller stones will look more real. The most believable would be styles made with pave' setting, where the entire design is made with many small sized stones.
The Whole Look
As mentioned before, all high quality cubic zirconia jewelry looks real. Our jewelry is on another level compared to cheap fashion jewelry from accessory stores. What makes certain jewelry look believable is the full look that the jewelry item is merely a small part of. For instance, in a formal evening setting where you're rocking your heels and a designer bag, you can get away with larger pieces or larger stones. However, that same piece worn with a t shirt and jeans may look "fake" even if it was the same item. So remember to keep in mind the setting and the whole look when choosing a CZ jewelry item for that day.
Confidence Above All
At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter what others think. Many of our customers can afford large pieces with large stones, but they simply choose to spend their money more wisely. Jewelry is not about what others think. It is about excellence in design and craftsmanship. It's not about a price tag. Jewelry is an artistic expression. You should wear what you like. Confidence is true beauty. Wear your jewelry proudly and have fun doing so!
