7 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Cubic Zirconia Engagement Ring
1. Affordability of Engagement Ring
Do you want to start off your marriage with debt? It's surprising how many people each year actually go into debt on their engagement ring. We could go into a whole article about the statistics and how it impacts the marriage, but to keep it short, you do not want to start off a marriage that way. Cubic Zirconia Engagement Rings are a fraction of the cost, averaging around the $100 to $300 price range compared to diamond rings where a 1 carat diamond ring is easily $3000.
Why are prices so high? It's because these costs are artificially inflated, and high end jewelry companies have spent time since the 1900s promoting the "rarity" of diamonds, but in reality, the oligarchies (giant jewelry companies) have dominated the diamond industry, setting their own rules on diamond prices, and ensuring that they are artificially sold at high prices.
Cubic Zirconia is not affected by this same price hiking and marketing, and instead is often made to be seen as a "cheaper alternative" but in reality cubic zirconia shines brighter and provides more beauty for a lower cost!
2. Stunning Brilliance & Flawless
Our rings are made with cubic zirconia that is literally flawless. Why is that? Because CZ as being lab-created, has no inclusions. If you've done some research on diamonds, you'll know that one of qualities is clarity. and due to nature of cubic zirconia, it's rating is Flawless (which for a diamond of that quality is pretty much near impossible to find).
Cubic Zirconia also shines brighter, and has greater brilliance due to the fact that it has no inclusions, meaning that a cubic zirconia of equivalent weight to a 1 carat diamond will shine much brighter with greater fire than the diamond.
3. Worry Free Purchase and Replacement
The biggest fear when buying a diamond engagement ring is whether your fiance will lose that ring! With rings easily costing a few thousand dollars, the last thing you want to hear is that the ring is lost. A loss or stolen ring means experiencing the stress and heartache of losing that precious symbol of love along with the monetary value, especially if you have to purchase a new one.
With a cubic zirconia engagement ring, you won't have the same nightmares and fears of losing your ring, and even if it is lost, it's easy to get a new one at a fraction of the cost it takes to replace an expensive diamond ring. Feel free to lose 20 rings and you'll still be better off than if you lost a diamond ring.
4. Less Jewelry Insurance Fees
Not only do expensive diamond rings come with an upfront cost, but they also come with an ongoing cost through insurance. Over your lifetime it can easily cost hundreds of dollars if not thousands over time (sometimes even surpassing the initial cost of the diamond ring) in order to ensure its replacement if lost. This is a cost not commonly factored in, and if you choose to instead ensure it through other means like your renters insurance, it adds an extra cost along with the base fee.
With a CZ ring, you can ensure it at a fraction of the price, or like most couples with cubic zirconia rings, you can choose not to insure it. Worst case scenario is that they are easily replaceable if lost, saving you on the initial cost and insurance costs.
5. Ethically Sourced and Conflict Free
Don't even get us started about conflict free diamonds, and about the blood diamond trade, as that's one topic that we can write essays about. In a nutshell, many diamonds these days are mined as a result of illegally funding wars in 3rd world countries, often being associated with children workers, and grueling work conditions. In a lot of cases, it's hard to even figure out which diamonds are from these diamond mines, and which are mined in ethical ways.
With cubic zirconia, we actively avoid blood diamonds by creating our gems in the lab. You can know 100% that these engagement rings do not have any negative associations with them, and you and your future spouse can both sleep happily knowing that she doesn't have a diamond with questionable origins sitting on her ring finger.
6. Customizability in Choice and Color
We love cubic zirconia engagement rings because of all the different ways it can be customized and how it can look. For example you can have a stunning pink cubic zirconia surrounded by two smaller clear crystals, or you can pair it with a gold or sterling silver ring.
Instead of a plain clear shaped diamond, you can give it a nice flair or touch to stand apart from the rest, of if you like the classic engagement ring, there's something for you too!
7. No one can really tell its Cubic Zirconia or Diamond!
We've heard it before, "Won't my wife like diamond more than cubic zirconia?!" In reality however, we've see it hundreds of times, its difficult to even tell a diamond simulant from an actual diamond. Sure to a professionally trained eye looking through jewelry lens they can tell, but not to regular people you encounter on a daily basis.
Chances are, the cubic zirconia ring may even be more impressive than a diamond ring! You can get a 2 carat sized cubic zirconia ring for the fraction of the price of a 1 carat diamond ring, and the stunning sparkle will make that diamond ring seem dull in comparison! Who knows, even if you're not 100% sure, try out a cubic zirconia engagement ring, and you might she likes it even better than a diamond ring!
