Cubic Zirconia Engagement Rings

If you are looking for information before buying cubic zirconia engagement rings, then you have come to the right place. First I will explain what they are, and then I'll walk you through the buying process, so you know all the things you need to be aware of, before making the purchase. Finally I will point you to the right direction, so you can get your ring in best possible price. Sounds good, right?!

What exactly are cubic zirconia diamonds?
CZ stones are man-made synthetic diamonds, which are completely flawless. Most of them are colorless, but they can also be found in many different colors if you so desire, like yellow, orange, pink or purple. Even though the price is very low, they look just like real a diamonds. Only trained jeweler can tell the difference between natural stone and CZ diamond just by looking at it.

Set the budget
Now that you know what they are, it's time to start shopping. First thing you need to do is set the amount that you are willing to spend for the ring. With CZ stones you don't need to follow the traditional three month's salary rule, that’s the amount people usually spend to their rings. This way you can find great looking rings for affordable price between 50$ to 500$ range.

Know what she wants!
Be sure to know her taste and desires before making your decision about the ring. If you are in doubt, go ahead and ask from herself, or if you want to surprise her it may be better to consult her parents, siblings or close friends. Usually at least one of them can give useful information about what type of a ring she might love.

Select your favorite setting
The setting, namely speaking the ring, can be anything that you could imagine. You can choose everything from flamboyant complex metalwork to elegant simplicity, it's totally up to you. Or should I say, totally up to her. Make sure that you know her ring size before logging in to the store.

Most common precious metals used in engagement rings are:
  • Platinum
  • 18 karat yellow gold
  • 14 karat yellow gold
  • 18 karat white gold
  • 14 karat white gold

Cubic zirconia diamonds come in many shapes and colors just like natural stones. Below is a chart where there are ten pictures of different kind of ways of how diamonds are cut. The most popular cut is the round brilliant, it is the one that makes diamond sparkle like stars in the sky.
