Cubic zirconia earrings are fantastic pieces of jewelry for two distinct reasons – firstly, they offer an almost unbounded set of options, both in their styles and their colors; and secondly, today’s cubic zirconias look sparklingly great at incredibly affordable prices.
If you are wondering what cubic zirconia actually is, it is an artificial mass-produced gemstone, and it is widely used in all kinds of jewelry from rings, bracelets and necklaces and of course in making inexpensive cubic zirconia earrings. As the technology advances it becomes increasingly difficult to tell CZ earrings from the far more expensive diamond jewelry; it’s an easy task for jewelers and valuers because they have different optical properties (cubic zirconia splits lights into its constituent colors more easily than diamond). The important point is that a cubic zirconia earring will not look like cheap rubbish! It has become classier than that nowadays.
Even better, you’ll be able to find CZ earrings in all sorts of colors, so they are no longer just “fake” diamonds. Ruby reds and emerald greens are also available, along with blues, yellows, blacks and pretty much any other color you could be interested in. Of course, many designs take account of this breathtaking choice of colors by combining different colored cubic zirconia into a single piece of jewelry. So you will cubic zirconia hoop earrings with alternating black and white stones; or perhaps an eternity ring with reds and whites. The choices really are endless and produce some astounding jewelry that is a reality for everybody to afford, rather than being a hundred thousand dollar pipedream.
Even if you have a lot of cash to splash out on jewelry, it is still a good idea to treat yourself to cubic zirconia accessories. You might like to wear pretty earrings everyday, but not want the hassle of always wearing expensive diamond earrings. They can look a little over the top perhaps, but more importantly, it would be a constant worry that you might lose one, or become a victim of crime and have them stolen. So the price of genuine diamonds – apart from dollars – is a healthy respect and the responsibility of keeping them safe. Having cubic zirconia earrings is a breeze in comparison, and are probably a wise move for young teenagers who want to wear the showy gemstone jewels, but are not quite responsible yet for really expensive ones.
Of course, whether you are responsible or not, teenager or middle-aged, worried about loss or theft or fairly security conscious, sometimes it simply boils down to the fact that you either don’t want to, or can’t, afford to go shopping for diamonds and rubies, but want to look and feel special with some lovely jewelry – and in this case, the look you are aiming for can very easily be achieved by perusing the many options available with cubic zirconia earrings.
