Buy Zircon !NEW!

Zircons are very dense stones so be aware that they may look smaller than other gemstones of the same carat weight. For example, Zircon is roughly 50% denser than a diamond - if the diamond weighs 1 carat, the same size zircon will weigh about 1.5 carats.

Zircon comes in various colors, but blue gemstones is probably the most popular and most valuable of the family. However, blue zircon is always commonly heat treated. Zircons make an excellent diamond substitute when appropriately cut, despite being rarer than the famous stone.

As with any gemstone, the price of zircon depends on the four Cs (cut, color, carat, and clarity). The average price for blue zircon is $75 per carat for a stone weighing 5-6 carats. High-quality blue zircon gemstones can reach up to $200 per carat. Stones weighing more than 10 carats can easily fetch around $150-$175 per carat.

Most blue zircon is heat treated. The hardness also varies depending on the stone's quality, from 6 on the Mohs scale for lesser quality stones to 7.5 for high-quality examples. Blue zircon gems have uniaxial optics and pleochroism, rare in blue colored gemstones.

Blue zircons, while being an excellent substitute diamond, lack the same hardness as diamonds and therefore should be worn with care. Rings should have protective settings, and any other jewelry should be occasional-wear only.

CZ White AAA stones are the most popular among jewellery stores because they still offer great quality at affordable prices. Cubic zirconia price range from $22 upwards for beautiful jewellery pieces of this grade.

Cubic Zirconia White Quality has different grades A, AA, and AAA. The one we are selling in this section is AAA grade. There are 58 facets in all the stones, but the differences are based on polishing and the quality cut of cubic zirconia stones.

Zircon is as old as time; she could have been a piece of outer space which sets life on earth in motion. Older than diamonds, holding zircon means holding a 4.4 billion year old piece of earth (or in layman terms: zircon is almost as old as the earth itself and older than dinosaurs).

The Hindus believed Zircon to be the leaves of a Kalpa tree, the wish-fulfilling tree with golden roots, diamond fruits, silver trunks, pearl flowers, and zircon leaves. Whomever rests under its shade, their dreams are granted reality. Whatever you wish, you shall receive.

Zircon is often confused with cubic zirconia, a man-made diamond imitation. Though both of them are equally marketable for different reasons (cubic zirconia or CZ is much cheaper than a diamond), zircon is a natural mined gemstone.

Bottom Line Recommendation: Cubic zirconia and diamonds may look similar at a distance, but differ drastically in beauty, quality and value. For a stunning engagement ring that will last a lifetime, we recommend choosing a real diamond over cubic zirconia. While you can find a cubic zirconia ring like this on Amazon for a fraction of the cost of a beautiful 3 Carat diamond ring, the diamond is a far superior option. To find a high-quality, excellently priced diamond within your budget, contact us for a complementary search and expert advice.Your best option if you are looking for a more affordable option is to go with lab-grown diamond from a reputable company like James Allen or Blue Nile. Take a look at this stunning one carat diamond from James Allen for example. This allows you to save a considerable amount of money compared to a natural diamond without sacrificing brilliance and beauty the way you do with cubic zirconias.

Cubic zirconia is made by melting zirconium oxide powder with stabilizers like magnesium and calcium at 4,982ºF. After being removed from hours of heat, crystals form and stabilize. The crystals are then cut and polished. Each lab has its own specific methods for making cubic zirconia.

The best way to tell a cubic zirconia from a diamond is to look at the stones under natural light: a diamond gives off more white light (brilliance) while a cubic zirconia gives off a noticeable rainbow of colored light (excessive light dispersion). The excess light dispersion is a key sign that the stone is not a diamond.

There are several other ways to tell the difference between diamonds and cubic zirconia, including looking at their physical, chemical and, visual properties. Knowing the differences will help you make the best decision when designing and purchasing jewelry.

Cubic zirconia lasts two to three years with everyday wear, as long as you clean and care for your jewelry. With occasional wear, cubic zirconia can last up to five years. Over time, cubic zirconia usually gets scratched and becomes cloudy.

Cubic zirconia does not rust, but the jewelry setting can. Inexpensive metals such as brass, gold-plated alloys, and sterling silver often rust over time due to exposure to oxygen in the air and water.

Cubic zirconia gets cloudy over time due to scratches, soap and mineral residue, dirt, and exposure to oxygen in the air and water. You can clean your cubic zirconia with soapy water and a soft cloth. Depending on why your gemstone is cloudy, you may not be able to restore it to its original state.

On the other hand, cubic zirconia (CZ) is a newcomer to the world of gemstones. Though natural cubic zirconia was first found in the 1930s, it was a rare occurrence. Scientists started experimenting with the synthetic variety. By the 1970s they perfected the synthetic version of CZ and began its commercial production for industrial use. But cubic zirconia clearly displays jewelry potential with its dazzling brilliance!

Zircon is a natural gemstone popular for an astounding optical splendor that resembles a diamond. This trait of zircon makes it popular among jewelry and gem enthusiasts. The unique characteristic of displaying fire and luster makes this gemstone optically similar to diamond. The luster and reflective quality of natural zircon are not far from that of a diamond. Apart from the colorless variety, zircon is found in various popular colors such as blue, green, pink, purple and yellow. Zircon can be heated to make it colorless or to enhance its colors. The fact that differentiates a zircon from a diamond is the display of double refraction.

Hi there Lorelei! There are several factors that can be considered. In a retail setting, a jeweler might use a refractometer to measure the refractive index of the stone(s). Zircon and CZ are noticeably different, and would be easy to distinguish. A trained gemologist might be able to observe the crystal structure to determine if the stone is synthetic or natural. If the stones are unmounted, they could also be weighed. The specific gravity is a measure of stone density. Knowing the dimensions and calculating the weight could help determine whether it is zircon or cubic zirconia.

Blue Zircon is the most popular colour, usually displaying a pastel blue, but occasionally a striking bright blue. Also, blue zircon can look greenish from certain angles. Medium dark, pure blue stones are the most valuable. However, the blue is only obtained by heat treating brown Zircon. 041b061a72
