“You are more than ready to propose to your girlfriend and get married, but something is holding you back. You love your girlfriend dearly and want to spend the rest of your life with her, but you are realizing that the size of the diamond on the ring or the price tag on that ring does not equal your love for her. Today many people end up spending thousands and thousands of dollars on an engagement ring. Even after they get married they are still paying payments on the ring, and in this way their wife actually ends up paying for her own ring! If you and your girlfriend are financially smart, you probably realize that spending that much money on a piece of jewelry is just silly. However, the romantic in you still wants a beautiful ring with which to pop the question. There is a solution to your problem: purchase a cubic zirconia white gold engagement ring instead of a diamond white gold engagement ring set!
What Is Cubic Zirconium?
Cubic Zirconium (colloquially known as cubic zirconia), is a man made stone that closely resembles a diamond. From far away, you really cannot tell the difference between a diamond and a cubic zirconium stone. When you place a cubic zirconia white gold engagement ring next to a diamond white gold engagement ring, chances are that the average person will not be able to tell the difference. However, as you would assume, a jeweler will definitely be able to tell the difference between a cubic zirconia white gold engagement ring and a diamond white gold engagement ring.
What To Know When Purchasing Cubic Zirconium
If you do decide to purchase a cubic zirconia white gold engagement ring instead of a pricey diamond white gold engagement ring, there are a few things that you should be aware of. First, do not purchase a very large stone. If you purchase a very large stone, it will look fake. This is because real diamonds are very rarely flawless and they all have their own unique characteristics. Because cubic zirconium is man-made, the stones are nearly flawless and perfect. There are no nicks or scuffs or dark spots like real diamonds have. If the stone is very large, anyone will be able to tell that it is a cubic zirconia white gold engagement ring and not a real diamond white gold engagement ring. To spare your girlfriend the embarrassment, make sure to keep the diamond reasonably sized.”
