Cubic Zirconia Engagement Rings for the Wedding

Once you’ve decided to get married, you have a lot of things to figure out.  One of the most important things you have to decide is what kind of engagement ring you want.  After all, you will be wearing that ring for a long time.  If you have wondered about cubic zirconia engagement rings, you probably have lots of questions about them before you make the decision to actually get one.  Read this to find out what you should know about them and why they should be part of your wedding jewelry portfolio.

Cubic zirconia by nature is flawless.  The manufacturing process for cubic zirconia guarantees this, so you can be sure all cubic zirconia engagement rings you find will also be flawless.  Diamonds always have carbon inclusions in them, and sometimes they can even be seen by the naked eye.  Cubic zirconia will not have any of those inclusions, and so will always be absolutely beautiful.

All cubic zirconia stones are super strong.  They rate just above an 8 on the Mohs scale.  Diamonds rate a 10 on the scale, which is the highest rating a mineral can get.  If you are someone who has a strenuous job, or someone who plays lots of sports, don’t worry that a cubic zirconia engagement ring will not hold up as well as a diamond one will.  A cubic zirconia ring will look as great after wearing it for 10 years as it does the first time you wear it.  The only thing that might take a beating and not look as good is the setting, but this can happen even with a diamond ring.  Always be careful with any metal jewelry settings.  If you are around harsh chemicals or play sports that will subject a ring to lots of abuse, it might be a good idea to remove your ring in that case only because the setting might be damaged, not the cubic zirconia stone.

Cubic zirconia can be cut into any size and shape, just as diamonds can.  Some people love the look of cushion cut engagement rings, and some prefer more modern princess cut engagement rings.  It doesn’t matter what your preference is, you will be able to find a cubic zirconia engagement ring cut into the size and shape that you love, with no compromising needed.

This is probably something you already know:  Cubic zirconia engagement rings are very inexpensive.  The reason I list it here is because you should not feel like your ring is inferior because it was inexpensive.  Good quality cubic zirconia rings set in sterling silver can easily be found for $50, and sometimes less than that.  Gold settings will run somewhat higher, but will still be very reasonably priced.  What would you rather spend – $179 for a gold cubic zirconia engagement ring, or $1000 (or much more!) for a diamond one?

When you are planning a wedding and adding up all those expenses, a CZ ring sure makes sense.  Hopefully this guide will help you decide if a cubic zirconia engagement ring is right for you!
